Rose and Ben invited our team to Western Massachusetts to spend the weekend at their Camp Lenox wedding. We enjoyed the sanctuary that was incredible vistas of Shaw Pond; wooded pathways to overnight cabins; and deep conversations with new friends. We organized the wedding rehearsal and also managed the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance party in four separate locations.
Rose and Ben’s self-uniting marriage was touching, and set the tone for a day filled with a palpable deep love. Camp Lenox catered the dinner and baked many, many amazing pies in lieu of cake. After dinner, the wedding moved up the hill to the lodge, where an EverBlock dance floor, balloons, dance lighting, and fun music awaited guests. Check out these amazing photos from Gina Clyne:
Flavia and Jeremy celebrated their love with a beautiful wooded New England wedding in mid-June. The couple shared heartfelt vows in Flavia’s grandmother’s backyard — a perfectly peaceful backdrop. We were so honored that they chose The Mindful Wedding to complete their vision.

“Highly highly recommend Sara and her team for both wedding day-of coordination and DJ services! We first hired Sara to be the DJ for our wedding in June, and she was so nice to work with and flexible about how to deal with the music, timing of the reception, etc. We chose to make our own playlists, and she worked to put them in the right order and add transitions- though many people might not want to make their own, we appreciated that she was totally fine letting us take control of the music! Once we got closer to the wedding, I realized that we really needed some help on the day, and it made the most sense to hire Sara and her assistant Elise- they were reasonably priced and offered a super smooth transition into doing coordination. On our wedding day, Sara and Elise came early in the day, and we were struck by how friendly and genuine they were, and how well they worked with all the people they were meeting for the first time! They led a quick rehearsal with our wedding party, since we weren’t able to do that the day before, which was really helpful to get us all on the same page; they were also excellent at handling some of our more controlling bridesmaids 🙂 — stepping back to let them make suggestions on how the rehearsal should go, but taking control in the end and making a decision. By far, though, the thing I am most grateful for is how they helped all the food come together- we had 2 friends cook all the food at a nearby church kitchen, rented everything a caterer would normally bring ourselves, and hired servers and bartenders. Not having a caterer who was used to coordinating a wedding dinner (food and event staff) was a bit scary, but Sara and Elise jumped in and made it all happen seamlessly! In the end, the wedding went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t have done it with them! Thank you again Sara and Elise!” – Flavia
We worked with a lovely couple, Russell and Meghan, in September of 2017. It was a blissful day, and the wedding overlooked the ocean from the Pilgrim Monument. We were hired to manage the day-of coordination as well as DJ services and the wedding went so amazingly! Check out these amazing photos from Seth Kaye, and a testimonial from Russell.
“We just had our wedding on 9/9/17, and we were thrilled to have DJ Sara!
Sara was really just delightful to work with, on every level. We hired her for both DJ and day of coordination and she and her whole team were so great.
In addition to providing a really excellent dance party at our reception, Sara and her assistant, Elise, worked closely with all of our vendors to make the whole day run smoothly. She was super on top of making sure everyone was on the same page- the “day of” coordination really started about two weeks before the day, just confirming times with everyone. We had seven different vendors for our wedding and Sara did an awesome job working with all of them. They made sure all our chairs and decorations were set up perfectly.
They were able to seamlessly run sound for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. When there were slight technical difficulties, Sara handled them incredibly quickly without any stress. They even brought us food and drinks when we didn’t even realize we needed them! To be honest they probably did stuff I wasn’t even aware of, just helping everyone out. They had a lot of work to do and they handled it all with a very positive attitude and fun demeanor.
The music Sara chose was fantastic, it was a great mix for kids, older folks, and all our friends too. She really listened to what we wanted and took requests from our guests as well.
All in all, we had a super fun wedding and Sara made it all go as smoothly as we could’ve hoped. We were very happy that we hired her for day of coordination, so that we and our families could relax and enjoy the day! I highly recommend her.”
