Laurel & Elm Ranked Among Top Philadelphia Wedding Planners

We have been having an extremely busy fall wedding season around here so our blog has been a bit silent lately! However, last Thursday we found out that Laurel & Elm was rated as one of the top 20 wedding planners in Philadelphia (out of 274 Philadelphia wedding planners!) and had to take a minute to share! 

This is such a huge honor considering all of the talented planner friends we were ranked along with! I am extremely grateful for all of our Laurel & Elm couples that took the time to write us glowing reviews that helped with our ranking! 

Check out the list HERE! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! It's no secret that greenery and gold details are some of our favorites at Laurel & Elm, so today we are sharing some of our best unintentional St. Patty's day inspiration!

Styling + Design Package

Hi future brides and grooms! After many requests that turned into custom planning packages, I've decided that I needed to create a package exclusively for styling and design!

I've always offered full styling and event design in some of my larger packages, but this package is catered towards those who may need a little more help creatively and a little less help logistically than those looking for full service wedding planning! 

A Laurel & Elm styling + design couple can expect a relaxing engagement while we create detailed design plans from concept to implementation for every minute of your wedding filled with customized details galore! We'll be there to set it all up and style it to perfection so that all of your guests can enjoy being GUESTS! 

Hop on over to the Contact page for all of the details and pricing! Let us make your wedding beautiful! 



Copper + Merlot Inspiration Featured on Wedding Chicks!

Yesterday was such an exciting day because our copper and merlot inspiration shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks! If you didn't see the publication, check it out HERE! 

This shoot was SO much fun for me for multiple reasons. First of all, I got to work on the shoot from day one with one of my close friends, Tina of Tina Jay Photography, and she made the whole process a dream! We have a very similar style, so our vision for this shoot was always so clear from the beginning! I also got to meet so many new gifted creatives throughout the process and got to knock a couple of items off my wedding design bucket list - like those calligraphed wine glasses! 

A huge thank you to these extremely talented ladies who made this shoot possible and helped bring my vision to life: 

Photography: Tina Jay Photography | Venue: The Vineyard at Hershey | Catering: JDK Catering | Floral Design: Wildflowers by Design | Cake + Desserts: The Couture Cakery | Calligraphy: Belles Lettres Calligraphy | Rentals: Swoon Vintage Rentals + Barnes Farm Tables | Hair + Makeup: Veronique's Creative Artistry | Dress: Adrianna Papell | Ring: Trumpet & Horn | Ring Box: The Mrs. Box

New Year New Goals!

Happy New Year everyone! In the spirit of making 2016 my best year yet, I'm setting some goals for Laurel & Elm that I'm really going to do my best to stick to! Check them out and hold me accountable :) 

Blogging

I started off with an easy one as I am accomplishing this right now! I want to be WAY more consistent with blogging, so I've already planned out the next month to stay on track! My goal is to incorporate product finds, DIY tutorials and new favorite trends along with Laurel & Elm weddings! So, my first goal of 2016 is to blog once a week - CHECK!

Instagram

As crazy as it sounds, Instagram has been one of my biggest business assets this year! I've gotten some wonderful clients and made the sweetest friends in the wedding industry just by posting photos! So this year I want to post 5 times a week and see where that takes me! If you aren't already following along, let's be friends! Check out the Laurel & Elm instagram HERE!

calligraphy

This one is ambitious. Calligraphy is something that I've always been dying to learn but have had absolutely no training in. I think it's something that could be SO helpful to my clients in the long run, plus I just love seeing weddings with cohesive place cards, bar signs and calligraphed details galore! I tried brush calligraphy for the first time for one of my couples earlier this year and had SO much fun! I think with (lots of) practice, this could be a helpful service to offer clients! Here's my first attempt at place card stones below:

Let me know if you'd like some practice snail mail :) 

Design-only package

Last, but certainly not least - in a few weeks I'll be introducing a new Laurel & Elm package that will allow you to select design-only services! Full custom design is included in my larger packages, but this package is targeted for those who might not be looking for full service coordination along with it! Stay tuned for more information :) 

Hopefully everyone's new years resolutions are going well! Day 6!
