Abby & Ean are Married! 06.07.2014

Abby & Ean were married on June 7th this year at Michigan Stadium. They stayed at the Campus Inn, and did their first look there on the terrace. It was so beautiful to be there to watch it!

The fabulous team that worked on Abby & Ean’s wedding included Bill Hamilton Designs, Shane Tincu Films, Marek Dziekonski Photography, Sun Messengers, Panache Entertainment, Event Source, Chair Covers & Liinens, Moveable Feast, Golden Limousine, Jefferson Market & Cakery, Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Le Salon Bridal Boutique.

Abby & Ean’s dog (Bobby Nugget) was the ring bearer, and wore a matching doggy diaper to prevent any accidents on the field! Ean surprised Abby and the rest of the family with a drone photographer that photographed the ceremony from the air – can’t wait to see how they turn out!

Inside the Stadium, on the 4th floor of the Jack Roth Stadium Club, my team was busy folding napkins, placing linens and chargers, setting up the Ferraro Rocher escort cards, and getting things ready for guests to walk in to cocktail hour and dinner.

Abby was worried that the Stadium wouldn’t look elegant enough for a wedding – but I think we did a pretty good job making sure that wasn’t the case!

Guests had so much fun during cocktail hour, it was hard convincing them to move into the dining room! Dinner was fabulous though, and toasts took place as guests were eating to maximize time for dancing. It was a late reception because of the women’s academy earlier that day!

Abby & Ean cut the cake with Abby’s parents’ cake knife and server. I worked very closely with Abby’s mom, Judi since the couple lives out of state. I love getting to know the entire family during the planning, it makes the wedding day that much more special!

Congratulations Abby & Ean, it was a pleasure working with you!

Sara & Chase are Married! 05.31.2014

Sara & Chase were married on May 31st at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, MI. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed drinks and concessions at the Theater as the bridal party took pictures around town. From their, the party continued at the Michigan Union ballroom.

The amazing team that were part of Sara & Chase’s day include Bill Hamilton Designs, Shane Tincu Films, Heather Saunders Photography, Mike Staff Productions, Golden Limousine, Panache Entertainment, Imagine Three, Chair Covers & Linens, Quest Productions, CurlyArt, Paisley Quill, Sweet Heather Anne, and A1 Rentals.

The concept for their room came together during a decor meeting – mixing long feasting tables for family and fun, square tables for friends into the room, also maximizing the space since their guest count was about half of what you could put into the Union – we didn’t want it to look empty!

We mixed cream and champagne linens, silver chairs and chargers, gorgeous menus that coordinated with the invitations, and candlelight. We opened the curtains until after dinner, then closed them for dancing and for the lighting in the room to really show off!

Sweet Heather Anne did a knock-out job on this cake – isn’t it amazing?! It was supposed to be tucked into a corner, but for such a show piece, I decided to move it to front and center as guests walked into the room.

Sara & Chase also had a sweets table, a gourmet coffee bar, and late night snacks – one of the perks of a lower guest count is you get to fill up the guests that are there all night long!

Instead of table numbers, Sara & Chase chose street names that were meaningful to them – a project Sara tackled on her own. Guests were directed to their table from seating charts in the hallway, and then their place card at the table indicated a specific seat as well as their meal choice for the evening.

It was such a beautiful wedding, congratulations Sara & Chase! We will miss talking to you all the time!

Heather & Dan are Married! 05.30.2014

Heather & Dan were married on May 30th at the gazebo in Lakeside, OH. Planning their wedding was a lot of fun, but also a challenge as I didn’t know the local vendors! I would go back in a heartbeat though – it was gorgeous!

The reception took place on the lawn of St. Mary’s Byzantine Church in Marblehead, OH. A tent was set up with clear walls to still enjoy the view, and a mixture of square and round tables to complete the look Heather was going for. The traditional, long head table faced the lake.

Beautiful Blooms by Jen did a great job on the flowers, they were beautiful and just what Heather wanted – a mix of casual and elegant. Several of the tables had potted plants rather than arrangements. Heather’s bouquet was just amazing as well.

Mesenburg Catering provided the food and secured the rentals from local sources, while we brought in the square tables from Event Source and linens from Chair Covers & Linens. It all came together beautifully!

Dan’s dad is a retired minister, so when “Son of a Preacher Man” came on as the couple was taking photos outside, the guests naturally all chimed in and spilled out onto the rocks by the water. It was just perfect! We had to quickly take the sides of the tent down so they could get out, and everyone enjoyed an amazing sunset.

Congratulations Heather & Dan, we were so excited to be a part of your wedding, and hope to see you back in Michigan soon!

Meet our new team member Greta!

I am super excited to be part of the TwoFoot Creative team for this year’s wedding season. I discovered my love for the planning process while I was planning my own wedding. My husband and I recently moved back to Michigan (goodbye military life!) and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try something I’ve always wanted to do. After working my first few weddings I kept thinking, how awesome is it to have someone who takes care of the tiniest of details, ones the bride may not have even thought of! Having a wedding planner eliminates so much stress for the bride and family. My favorite part is seeing an empty space transform into something amazing. I work in the finance field, so there is not much room for creativity. I love to make things beautiful!
