Let’s face it. We don’t really know any brides that aren’t “busy brides”, but alliteration is fun. And we love talking about ways to make the whole wedding planning process a lot more fun, simple, easy to navigate and memorable (but in a good way).

By |August 26th, 2015|

We talk a lot on this blog about logistics. Mainly because we love logistics. But we thought the blog was missing some “pretty” lately and we came across these lovely wedding menus on Etsy and knew we had to share.

Wedding menus are a beautiful addition to any tablescape. They can coordinate with your invitations, but really must coordinate with your other day-of stationery (place cards, progra […]

We’re never entirely sure how we get to work with such amazing clients, but Lauren and Alex were not only a match made in heaven for each other, but also a perfect match for the DPNAK team.

Both rocking full-time careers, Alex was a groom that loved spreadsheets, organization and timelines. Lauren knew exactly how to rock the right the amount of pretty + rustic an […]

Example no. 154 why we always leave extra room in the wedding timeline…

By |July 29th, 2015|

So, this past weekend was Lauren and Alex’s BEAUTIFUL on-property wedding in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We’re not sure we could’ve asked for a more beautiful day on the weather front. We’re talking blue skies, a comfortable 80 degrees, and a slight breeze to keep the tent cool.

As always, we worked with our couple and their vendors to put together a Master Wedding Day Timeline (included in all […]

Just a few short weekends ago, we had the pleasure of spending a BEAUTIFUL weekend in June out in the Poconos celebrating Kate and Thomas’ Pocono Lake Preserve wedding.

photo by With Love & Embers
Earlier this week, we were checking in with one of our couple’s getting married in just three short months (October!!). They’ve been uncharacteristically quiet the past few months and we understand that sometimes life takes over and wedding tasks tend to hit the back burner (especially around the 5-6 month mark where a lot of the big decisions are made and it’s t […]

Wedding Planning Questionnaires: What they are, Why we send them, and What do to with them

By |July 1st, 2015|

A few weekends ago, as we were getting ready to start a wedding rehearsal at one of our couple’s venues, the on-site coordinator walked up to our client with a clipboard and piece of paper. We knew in a heartbeat that it was a “dreaded” questionnaire. Now, we’re really not fans when venues and vendors wait until the DAY OF or day before a wedding to collect this info, but sometimes they don’t […]
