I had the pleasure of working with Lizzie Photo for the first time for Lauren & Brad’s awesome Cottonwood Barn wedding in Dexter, MI. Enjoy some of her beautiful photos!
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!
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.
Check out these beautiful paper flowers by Creations by MK!
Paper flowers are an increasing trend that is taking over the wedding circuit. Creations by MK is a Michigan based business that offers 100% handmade centerpieces, bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, escort cards, cake boxes and many other decorations containing flowers made entirely out of paper! Your guests can also take these delicate beauties home with them as a souvenir. Unlike real flowers, these arrangements are long-lasting!
Creations by MK was established in 2005 and actually started out as a greeting card business. Melissa Kallasides, the owner, was inspired by the tissue pom pom flower decorations but wanted to create a more defined look. She experimented with cardstock to form the first paper rose, “I made 20 paper flower gift boxes to debut at one of my craft shows and they sold out within the first hour,” Melissa explained. Clearly, everyone was intrigued by the unique paper flowers.
Today, brides have actually requested that Melissa provide ALL of the flowers for their weddings. Many have also ordered Creations by MK for gifts and special occasions. These flowers have been a sensation throughout many states such as Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, California, Georgia and especially Michigan. The buzz has also traveled to Europe in countries such as Ireland, England and Spain!

There are so many ways to have your special pets apart of your day:
- Use them to propose
- Ring Bearers or Flower Girls
- Have them be in your Save the Dates
- Engagement or Wedding photos
- Be your Maid of Honor or Best Man
- Have a custom made cake topper or paper products with them on it
- Your pet’s personality- do they get along well with people (ie….kids if they are attending) being outside their familiar surroundings
- Are pets allowed at your venue? If not, some will accommodate if you make certain guarantees or deposits in case of accidents…
- Should you hire a pet sitter?
- Do they need to be taken home after the ceremony? Even if you want your dog to walk the rings down the aisle, he might not be the best behaved guest once food starts pouring out into guests’ hands for cocktail hour and dinner…
Make sure none of your guests if they will be around them are not allergic to them.
Let your planner, photographer, and videographer know!
And don’t forget, dogs aren’t the only cute and loveable pets to be included!
Mad Men is ending after this season, but their inspiration will definetly not be ending anytime soon. I love this era and the style of dressing is one you see popping up everywhere! Thanks to Google for these!
This would be so much fun to do and to even have your guests join in on the fun as well.
Metallics have been a popular trend for the past couple of years. It’s edgy and can be used in small details that don’t take away from floral or existing room décor.
Copper is the metal to have this year. It’s a subtle metallic color that compliments a wide range of colors.
Here are some ideas that we fell in love with. Stay tuned for one of our Memorial Day weekend weddings – they are using copper pieces in the table arrangements!
Although I have never watched an episode of Games of Thrones (does this make me un-cool?), I do know that it has inspired many of the latest fashions on the runway right now. So of course it has also became a trend in the wedding industry as well.
Here are some ideas I found to achieve this medieval look! The attention to details are amazing. A wedding like this would be so much fun to attend as a guest.
Choosing men’s clothing for a special event can be easy for some men who may be used to getting dressed up for work every day but for some men this is the first time they have ever had to step into the world of suits, tuxes, and vests.
There didn’t use to be so many options in attire for men on their wedding day, but thankfully now you have many. These days you can find attire for your significant style and wedding.
As with women’s fashion for weddings, always consider the type of wedding you’re having. Wearing tuxes at an outside barn venue will have you looking out of place. However, a cute suit or vest and dress pants will still have you looking like the groom and will fit in with your celebration. Also what is your partner wearing? You want to compliment each other, and I would also take into consideration the time of day your wedding is taking place.
Grooms are no longer just an afterthought in the world of wedding attire, they too get to show off their unique style on their wedding days!
I put together some ( Eye Candy) ideas together of grooms attire, to help give you some more ideas. Enjoy!!
