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!
Anne & Brian were married five years ago today in Greenfield Village, with a reception following at the Westin Detroit at the airport. Congratulations to you both!
Quileen & Duane were married three years ago today at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens with a reception following on site. Tracy Ann Photography took the above shot.
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!
Annie & Brett were married two year ago today at the beautiful Wellers in Saline, MI with an on site ceremony and reception. JLB Wedding Photography captured everything just beautifully! Congratulations to you both!
LeAnne & Tim were married two years ago today at the beautiful Southfield Westin. Congratulations to you both on your second year of marriage!
Sarah & Mary were married on March 22nd, the one day Michigan performed legal marriages at courthouses for same sex couples. They had already started planning their May 25th wedding celebration with me, which started with a beautiful ceremony in the Pendleton Room at the Michigan Union in Ann Arbor, MI.
They met with me the year before, and I remember how important it was for them to have fun throughout the planning, and to make things come together with the vision they had. The joy on their faces when they walked into the ballroom after the ceremony was priceless!
They wanted an ethereal feeling, light and airy like a garden party with the theme of their vintage books and copper pieces carried throughout. The design was a compromise between Sarah & Mary’s tastes, but I think it came out just gorgeously.
Their guest book was a card catalog, where guests were asked to write a message and insert it into the drawers – then Sarah & Mary would find them later! Library index cards were used for the escort cards, for the heart cutouts on their chuppah, and anywhere else they could fit them in.
There were lots of kids at the wedding, so the Parker room was available for kids to hang out, play with the things in their awesome bags that we put together, watch movies and relax while their parents enjoyed the wedding!
Sarah’s bouquet was fabulous – created by Blumz along with the rest of the floral decor. Mary Ann Productions truly rocked the night away; she is amazing! Chair Covers & Linens, Jefferson Market & Cakery, A Girl In Love Photography, Jessica Joan Productions, Quest Productions and Shutterbooth rounded out the amazing team that night.
Meaghan and her mom did the centerpieces themselves, using bird cages, pearls, vintage tea cups they painted in mint with gold accents, and succulents they grew in several gardens (that amazingly survived the winter!). We placed them on the tables when we arrived that day, as well as the fresh rose petals.
Meaghan & Greg’s wedding professionals included Ashley Letourneau Photography and Memory Box (photo booth). They had friends and family DJ and officiate, and the dessert table came from various stores around town.
This amazing cake topper was hand made by Meaghan’s grandfather, who has made them for every wedding he could throughout his lifetime. This one was numbered over 1000 – so impressive, and such a wonderful keepsake.
Congratulations Meaghan & Greg! Wishing you a Happily Ever After!
Lauren & Brad were so much fun to work with, as well as Lauren’s parents who were just so excited about the entire process. They were married at Cottonwood Barn on April 26th this year, and fortunately it was a beautiful day!
The day started with setup, which meant linens on tables, chairs set and tied, centerpieces placed after picking them up from Breath of Spring, table numbers out and all the other details Lauren & Brad brought in for their wedding, such as the slab of wood for guests to sign that will become a bar in their future home!
Lauren & Brad’s last name is Jones, so of course it was a perfect favor for guests to give them each a customized Jones soda bottle! Tables were named after the couple’s favorite breweries, with a beer growler representing each for guests to find their seats.
Escort cards were inserted into slits in birch branches, another DIY project they did a fabulous job with! Guests were very impressed with the amazing food from Melange Catering, and pies from a family friend that baked for days leading up to the wedding!
The other fabulous wedding professionals working with Lauren & Brad were Chair Covers & Linens, Lizzie Photo, and Mike Staff Productions. Lauren’s bouquet is also being turned into a canvas painting by CurlyArt!
I loved this wedding at White Oaks Farm! Caitlin and Bryan are two adorable people inside and out! This was my first time working with Jordanne + Ryan Photography and they are simply amazing! We hope to work with them again soon.
