Carrie & Evan are Married! 06.28.2014

Carrie & Evan were married on June 28th at the Michigan League in Ann Arbor, MI. Quest Productions did a fabulous job with the backdrop behind the ceremony (and later band), and Carrie’s parents created an amazing chuppah!

At the League, with a large guest count, you have to have an hour and a half cocktail hour to be able to flip the room. They put up pipe and drape on the sides, and the tables are magically hidden behind waiting for the ceremony to end and guests to head to cocktail hour!

Once cocktail hour began, we set out escort cards, put tables in place, moved flowers from the aisle chairs into the tops of the low centerpieces, placed the huge centerpieces once those tables were in place, made sure numbers were all correct and ran through timing with the band. Phew!

We had a great time working with Maureen’s Designs, Chair Covers & Linens, Bluewater Kings Band, Shutterbooth, Kat Foley Photography, Quest Productions and Zingerman’s Bakehouse! It was a lovely team effort with everyone involved.

The table names were all places that meant something to the couple, with a description about why. I love when couples do that, it makes it just a little more personal! We also tucked menus into their napkins – because no one remembers what they ordered weeks ago!

Congratulations Carrie & Evan – it was so much fun working with you both!

Juliet & Narooz are Married! 06.08.2014

Juliet & Narooz were married at Cobblestone Farm on June 8th of this year. It was an adorable ceremony, and I had so much fun with the two of them throughout the planning and wedding day!

Everything was very DIY, which made having a coordinator that much more important to make sure it all came together on the day of! We were there to send them down the aisle, cue musicians, and make sure everything was ready for the reception afterwards.

It was our first time working with Eat – and they did an amazing job! I look forward to many more with them, the food was delicious, the service was great and they were very easy to work with. We love teamwork!

Juliet and her family & friends collected vintage tablecloths to use on top of standard white linens – and it really looked amazing with the rest of their super colorful decor. An uncle helped with all the lanterns and lighting hanging in the ceiling, most of which was recycled or would be after the wedding.

A friend did all the flowers, including bouquets and bouts, and they were beautiful! The mother of the bride made the bundt cakes that were served as dessert, and friends provided photo and video services.

Congratulations Juliet & Narooz – we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Katie & Bobby are Married! 06.21.2014

Katie & Bobby were married on June 21st this year at the First Baptist Church in Ann Arbor, MI. It was the sweetest ceremony!

The reception followed at Earhart Manor at Concordia University in Ann Arbor. Family did all the floral and candles, which looked beautiful on the linens from Chair Covers & Linens and upgraded chivari chairs from Earhart. The escort cards’ colors indicated food choice for guests.

We had a fabulous time working with Amanda Williams Photography, Rock Out Entertainment, the Earhart Manor staff, Zingerman’s Bakehouse, and Golden Limousine!

I just loved their funfetti runner down the head table, and the tons of candles on top. We did have to blow them out early since they were melting too fast… but it was gorgeous!

The patio at Earhart Manor is beautiful, such a perfect spot for a summer cocktail hour! Once guests arrived, there were passed appetizers and an open bar, and lawn games galore.

Congratulations Katie & Bobby! It was such a pleasure working with you both!
