We hired Sarah as our ‘Day of Coordinator’ but she was soo much more than that! She continually reached out during the months leading up to our wedding to make sure planning was on track and to answer the millions of questions we had. On our wedding day Sarah made sure every thing ran so smoothly. She was phenomenal at communicating with our other vendors and made sure that everyone was on the same page for our wedding vision. Sarah was a dream to work with and I wish I was having another wedding just so I could work with her again!

Sarah is the absolute best! We had her as a day of coordinator, but she was so so helpful in the months leading up to the wedding as well! She was so responsive anytime I reached out with questions or concerns about vendors, timelines, and anything!! She was such a blessing to have on our wedding day and the day went so smoothly and was truly perfect! She handled all of the details and made the day so stress free. I cannot say enough about how great she is!!

Sarah did an absolutely tremendous job helping coordinate our wedding, especially for a reasonable price! She was easy to talk to, insightful, and took a lot of pressure off of us. We can’t stress enough our appreciation for her in all aspects including communicating with vendors, facilitating our rehearsal, and addressing any small hurdles day of the wedding. We highly recommend working with her!

Sarah Baarlaer with Heart 2 Heart is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL! She brought me the greatest gift - making wedding planning so much fun. I had the best time over the past 13 months planning the day of my dreams. She was kind, hilarious, and never made me feel like a burden. She was always there, and I mean always, because we communicated a ton. It felt like my wedding was the only wedding she was planning, and that just amazes me that she could make me feel this way when she has so many other weddings. She is the absolute greatest.

Wow. Where do I even start? From the day I met with Jennifer until the day I got married and even now, she has been 110% amazing. I was hesitant in hiring a planner but my now husband insisted I do so to alleviate the stress on me and now I look back and don’t know how I ever thought I could do it alone. Jennifer not only has a contagious smile, but she also has this amazing ability to make you feel calm and collected, even in the most stressful of situations. She is truly amazing to work with and you’ll end up with a friend after your wedding for sure.

I live in NYC and we planned a wedding in Cleveland. We worked with Jennifer for over a year to execute our vision. We are incredibly picky and opinionated, with very high standards, and Jennifer helped us execute our vision in a million different ways. Jennifer helped with pre-planning logistics, writing a very detailed day of timeline, contacting/paying our vendors, checking in with vendors closer to the day of the wedding, stuffing all of our (many) invitations, ordering our paper goods, and more!

My daughter's wedding was in the fall. This is the first wedding I've planned so I needed a good deal of help with details in the last month or so before the wedding and needed help arranging final details a few months before the wedding. We had done many of the basic things in terms of florist, location, etc. prior to then on our own. Jennifer was very easy to work with and referred some vendors at my request who were all equally excellent. She was a great resource the last several weeks before the wedding and certainly invaluable the day of the wedding. I would recommend her without hesitation,

Jennifer was great! We used her full service package. Our situation was a little unique in that we moved from Cleveland a year before the wedding. With Jennifer's help we were able to plan much of the wedding when we were still in town prior to moving and then do the finishing touches while out of town. Jennifer was always available and never was upset by the 2am texts (work overnight sometimes and would think of wedding related things) regarding the wedding. She kept us on track and was great about gentle reminders when we wouldn't respond or follow through with what we said we would do. She made the whole process of planning significantly less stressful and much more enjoyable. You will be in great hands if you choose Jennifer as your coordinator.

We are so happy we went with Jennifer for our wedding planner. You don’t even think about all of the coordination and organization that goes into planning a wedding until you are thrown into it. Jennifer took care of everything and all the vendors held her in highest regard which we learned was well deserved. On the day of the wedding the only thing I was nervous about was saying my vows in front of so many people and I could truly just enjoy the day. If you are questioning if you need a wedding planner... you do. If you are wondering who to choose, it is Heart 2 Heart Occasions

HIRE HER! :) Look no further --she's the best! Jennifer was the only way we could have pulled off an extraordinary ~200 person wedding WEEKEND (3 days of events) on Kelleys Island. It was a big ask to figure out how to do everything on a small island in Lake Erie, at my parents 1800s home, but she tackled it with ease. I wouldn't have known where to start - nor would I have had the time or energy to figure it out myself. Multiple vendors commented to me later about how organized and clear everything was made by Jennifer's communication. We couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Jennifer- we miss you!!
