Marah and Joel’s wedding held a special place in our wedding planning hearts! Marah is Amber’s little sister and Amber was her Matron of Honor. The couples’ tastes and style could be seen in every detail of their wedding. You could feel their love, compassion, and faith for each other throughout the day.
For Courtney and Chris, it was an easy choice on picking out where to get married. They wanted to create an intimate garden atmosphere for their guests in the city that they loved. We truly enjoyed planning with this wonderful couple to help pull together their wedding details to create this vision!
One of the most essential places on your wedding is actually not your ceremony or reception venue, but where you choose to get ready for your wedding and how you choose to manage that time. This is the place where you prepare for one of the biggest, most exciting days of your life, so it deserves to be more than an afterthought. Check out our tips on how to "get ready" for your wedding!
Flowers are one of the most noticeable details conveying your wedding style and design. Not only do they provide color, but also texture and fragrance. Your florist will help guide you through what combinations of certain flowers and greenery help to create a particular look and style; i.e. modern arrangements vs. bohemian arrangements. It's always important to trust your vendors and know that they are the professionals and that they have your best interests at heart. One way florists do that is by suggesting flowers that will be "in-season" when your wedding will take place. Using in-season flowers will not only save your budget, but also support local growers.
Samantha and Ian's intimate November wedding really emulated a season of love and togetherness. They wanted their wedding to include their closest family and friends and opted to have their ceremony and reception that would match their intimate wedding vision. Vinology in downtown Ann Arbor was the perfect setting for their 50 guest wedding ceremony and reception.
Every wedding has special qualities that make them memorable, but even more so when the wedding is that of a good friend! Caitlin and I have been friends since middle school and I was thrilled to be able to help her and Mitch with their wedding day. Caitlin, an art teacher and Mitch, a firefighter, wanted to create a wedding atmosphere that emulated their personal tastes and that created interest for their guests as well.

It fills our hearts with joy to be able to give back to our community. This past fall, we were given the opportunity to plan the American Heart Association (AHA) Washtenaw County Heart Ball. The AHA provides life-saving research and education all over the county. We couldn't have been happier to help this amazing organization with their event and help them reach their fundraising goal.
