Kristen was a phenomenal DIY bride! She had so many personal touches added to her wedding, I don’t even know where to begin: programs with personalized notes to each guest, tables named after places they had been to with cookie favors to match, a huge blue and white candy buffet that guests absolutely devoured, a snowflake wishing tree “guest book”, centerpieces and lanterns throughout Oakhurst – it was beautiful! The only problem was, she needed someone to put it all together the day of the wedding so she and her family could enjoy their day!
My assistant and I arrived at Oakhurst Country Club in Clarkston at 12:00pm and began setup, which lasted until 5:45pm! There were several tables missing that should have been there, and skirting on the head table and white linens were not done yet, so the decorator couldn’t add her silver linens on them until that was fixed. The contact at Oakhurst, Heidi, was wonderful in getting everything fixed to where it was supposed to be. The dance floor was moved away from the fireplace and the rooms were quickly set up the way Kristen wanted them!
The biggest “fix” of the day was in the place settings at each table – nearly all of them had a chair or two to add or subtract. For some reason, the decorator had different counts than Oakhurst did. When I went through with the programs and favors, there was quite a few adjustments to make! It was all done very effortlessly though, they were great people to work with and I would definitely do a wedding there again! The dining area looked great and shone blue, courtesy of Corri Design Group. Corrina did a wonderful job with the centerpieces in that room as well – tall branches and glass vases with orchids made it very chic and elegant.
All her vendors arrived on time, so fortunately I didn’t have to make any phone calls! The videographer they used was Take 1 Productions, and their highlight video is absolutely phenomenal so I can’t wait to see the final product! They were great to work with throughout the evening.
Kristen and EJ – congratulations on a beautiful wedding! All your hard work definitely paid off, the guests were incredibly impressed with the attention to detail! Thank you for choosing me to help make it all run how you wanted it to!
