Backyard Bliss

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
