Real Wedding: Chelsey and Brian’s Wilkes Barre Wedding

By |November 19th, 2014|

There’s such a fulfilling feeling that first time you sit down with a bride (and her mama) to talk about her wedding. Their ideas, their fears, their concerns, their excitement, their nerves – deciding to work together means that you, as the coordinator, are ready and waiting to take on those feelings, too. When I first met with Chelsey and her mom last August, there was an instant click. I got them, they got me. It was a match made in heaven.

Fast forward 14 months and it was Chelsey and Brian’s wedding day. Their Wilkes Barre wedding day started at the SaKaRi salon in Forty Fort, followed by a ceremony at Shavertown United Methodist Chur […]

Behind the Scenes: Jessie and Jody’s Ironstone Ranch Wedding

By |July 22nd, 2014|

What started as an empty barn…

…slowly became what would be one of my favorite weddings of 2014.

And I am so happy that we captured some behind-the-scenes shots of it all getting set up.
Our day started bright and early with a text from the bride, Jess, about a mix-up with one of the desserts. A quick trip to a local gluten-free bakery, Made with Love Not Gluten, solved that problem and we hit the venue, Ironstone Ranch in Elizabethtown, PA around 8am.
We arrived to a quiet farm with an empty barn.

A little after 8am, Missy and Neil arrived with 16 of their Barnes Handcrafted Farmhouse Table […]

Loriann and John’s Teaser Video by Kevin Fonash Studios

By |June 10th, 2014|

Loriann and John were married just this past weekend and Kevin Fonash captured their day from start to finish.
The day started out with the gals getting ready at LAVISH in Downtown Scranton (one of our favorite places for wedding parties) and the gents relaxing poolside at the couples home in NEPA.
Once they were ready, the couple took some First Looks in the Adams Ave garage (YES!) followed by an intimate ceremony at the Scranton Cultural Center surrounded by 227 of their closest loved ones. Naturally, food, drinks and dancing came right after in the Grande Ballroom which was beautifully lit and decorated by the ah-mazing Central Park Flow […]

Lauren and Sean – Friedman Farms Wedding Recap

By |May 28th, 2014|

The email came through on October 7, 2013:

“…Originally, we didn’t think we needed a planner/coordinator.”

Followed by:

“We are getting married on a Sunday, so normally, the wedding couples have the barn the ENTIRE week prior to the wedding, but we will not. We have access Sunday morning, so ideally, I would like someone there to make sure the vendors get there accordingly to set up their areas, and have someone to help assist with additional decor set up, as well as coordinate throughout the entirety of the event.”

Lauren and Sean were tying the knot on May 25, 2014 at Friedman Farms in Dallas, Pennsylvania. Friedman Farms is a […]

Clothing to store to wedding reception in just three hours….

By |September 23rd, 2013|

A few months ago, I sat down in a pizza shop with the most adorable bride and her sweet but overall concerned mom. They were planning the wedding of a lifetime but were concerned about how they were actually going to execute it all. Like most brides, Jamie wanted to enjoy her wedding day. Like most mothers, Peggy wanted her daughter to have a fantastic day without worrying about the details of the setup. Unlike most brides and moms, Jamie was planning her wedding reception to happen at a local clothing store in Pittston, PA.

On that same day a few months ago, I walked into a clothing store called Boden on South Main Street in Pittston. It’s truly a cute store, I must say. The catch with this store is that it was built to be an event space for locals parties and events. When the clothing store moved in, they didn’t quite anticipate the success it would have. Anyway, I was tasked with turning this amazing store into a reception for about 160 guests in about three hours time.

Real Wedding: Review from Christina and Nick

By |September 10th, 2013|

To say that receiving a review from a past client makes my day is a TOTAL understatement. Especially when it’s a review like this one from Christina and Nick from their August 10, 2013 wedding at Friedman Farms.

Christina said…
“My heart swoons when I talk about Danielle. Completely cliché, I know, but Danielle absolutely made our wedding day the day of our dreams. She was not only always immediately responsive, but she always treated my questions and requests with the utmost of professionalism and expertise. Danielle not only knew how to plan every detail of the day and resolve any issue we th […]

Real Wedding: Kim and Drew’s Wedding Coordinator Review

By |August 27th, 2013|

Kim and Drew tied the knot earlier this month at the Woodlands Inn & Resort in Wilkes Barre, PA. Amanda Brooke Photography was there capturing all the moments and details and I was so elated to read this review of my work from the bride.

From Kim…
“I cannot speak highly enough of Danielle…she was simply marvelous from beginning to end. Danielle made sure our rehearsal and wedding went wonderfully. We had a change of officiant which resulted in me having a mini-melt down the week before the wedding, but as soon as I told Danielle of the problem she was already on her way to fixing it. I’m telling you…the woman can work wonder […]
