Ana Skidmore – Principal Event Planner – (Ann Arbor)
I fell in love with the wedding planning industry after helping a friend plan hers in 2006 – and I’ve been hooked ever since! I love learning about new trends, ideas in decor, and finding the perfect venue for an upcoming wedding.
As an Accredited Bridal Consultant, giving back to the industry has become an important part of what I do, serving as Co-Director for the Association of Bridal Consultants in Ann Arbor and mentoring prospective wedding planners.
My favorite moment during a wedding is right before the bride walks down the aisle – so much happy anticipation!
Kristen Bongard – Event Planner (Detroit)
I have always been a “behind the scenes” kind of girl, loving the excitement of planning an event and seeing the vision come together. After charity events, sorority functions, and coordinating my friend’s wedding, I knew this was the career I wanted to pursue.
I have degrees in Marketing/Management and Fashion Marketing/Merchandising, and continue to further my education through the Association of Bridal Consultants. With an acute attention to detail, a flawless event is the standard event.
My favorite wedding moment is opening the doors for the grand entrance and feeling the energy and excitement in the room when a couple first walks in hand-in-hand as husband and wife.
Melanie works with TwoFoot Creative throughout the week as well – and we love having her on board to be there for the planning as well as the wedding days! She loves being involved in the planning process and helping each couple have their dream wedding. She loves to cook and try new recipes for family and friends, and spending time with her fur-baby!
Melanie’s favorite wedding moment is watching the bride and groom share in little romantic gestures – holding hands, stealing a kiss when they think no one is paying attention, and all the looks that tell you how in love they are!
