From the Host’s Desk...

What do weddings and podcasting have in common? (This is not a cheesy knock-knock joke, I swear.)

It’s taken me a little bit to figure this out, but now that I have, it makes perfect sense why I love hosting The Wedding Dish so much.

Weddings and podcasts are both about people. They are about celebrating people, honoring their stories, and truly connecting with others.

Connection is a huge theme in my life. I’m an extrovert, can’t you tell? As a wedding photographer, my push to connect with my couples long before I take out my camera. As the owner of District Bliss, I help facilitate connection between entrepreneurs at our networking events and workshops. And chatting with couples and wedding pros alike on The Wedding Dish makes me feel oh-so-connected, even if my guests are on the other side of the country.

I hope when you listen to The Wedding Dish, dear friend, you feel just as connected. Kinda like you’re listening in on your BFF’s super interesting convo with the person they sat next to at a dinner party.

So pour yourself a glass of rosé, and let’s dish!

Cheers,
Sara
CEO of Photos from the Harty and District Bliss

    The Real Cost of Micro Wedding Photography

    The Real Cost of Micro Wedding Photography

    Micro weddings are continuing to grow in popularity for several reasons. They’re more affordable, the couple has the flexibility to spend time with their guests throughout the day, and there’s often less pressure (especially for the introverts out there). But, not all costs flex with the number of guests on your list.

    Immediate Family, an Intimate Wedding in Ohio

    Accommodating everyone on your wedding day can be a challenge. That’s why this couple decided to talk with each of their guests at the beginning of the planning process to hear what was important to them.

    When your family is a priority, making time to talk with them about what is important to them surrounding your wedding celebration early on is critical.

    It was important to us that everyone felt seen and heard during the wedding planning process. We made time to have conversations with each of our family members to make sure that we knew their expectations and what was important to them early on.

Pure, genuine connection

There’s something about Sara that makes you feel as if you have known her for years. Her genuine interest in her guests and her ability to connect across the mic makes The Wedding Dish such a joy to listen to. Whether she’s covering weddings or business, or life, it feels like grabbing coffee with a friend and just spilling everything that you’ve got going on.
