Marie and Michael 9-19-09

Marie and Mike’s ceremony was held at St. Florians in Hamtramck. St. Florians is absolutely beautiful!
Their reception was at Crystal Gardens in Southgate. One word to describe their reception was elegant! Marie and Mike actually live in Florida so all of our communication was done via e-mail. I meet them just a couple of weeks before their wedding.
The flowers were provided by Petit Fleur Event Flower & Décor. They did a fantastic job! I loved the centerpieces.

I loved that Marie and Mike had their head table on the main floor surrounded by their guests rather that at the typical head table in front of everyone.

Their wedding cake matched the décor perfectly! Their cake had a very classic yet vintage feel. The cake was from Southgate Bakery. It was beautiful and tasted great!

Marie and Mike also had a sweet table provided by Crystal Gardens. There was a table on both sides of the cake filled with fruit, tarts, and cakes and just about anything you could want! It was a great extra that the guests loved!

I am so happy I was able to provide a candy buffet for Marie, Mike and their guests! It was a huge hit. Mike is from Canada and a family member told me she has never seen such a thing over in Canada but loved the idea. There was approximately 110 pounds of candy and it was all gone by the end of the night! I placed a personalized box at every place setting. For candy buffet packages please

Music was provided by T.J. Monte Productions. The DJ kept the crowd going all night long. Photographer was provided by
Aava Photography. Their photographer was amazing. I can’t wait to see the professional pictures!

Congratulations Marie and Michael!

Raquel and Michael 9-13-09

Raquel and Michael had their ceremony and reception at Crystal Gardens in Southgate. Raquel and Michael had all their loved ones at their ceremony. In fact all the seats were taken. Guests were also standing in the back and even pouring out the doors!As you walked into the reception room you were greeted by a great picture of the couple. I loved the canvas that Raquel and Michael had with their engagement photo!
Raquel and Michael had very yummy favors. They were pretzel rods dipped in chocolate. Raquel’s Aunt made them and they were delicious!

There were several different centerpieces. There were tall white lilies, candles floating in red water, white hydrangeas and tall red carnations for their parent’s tables. Flowers were provided by Cleverbumble Bee Creations. Chair covers were provided by Stephanie’s Wedding Creations. I will say that the chair covers really pulled the room together. Unfortunately Stephanie didn’t receive mine nor Raquel’s messages stating that we needed 75 more chair covers so the back of the room was without chair covers

Their wedding cake was perfect! I loved all the detail especially the flowers on top. You can’t tell from looking at it but the bottom layer of the cake was actually fake! Sheet cakes were used also. This is a great way to save money. The cake was from
Iversen’s Bakery.

Raquel and Michael also had a sweet table. Their guest’s loved the cookies!

Music was provided by Julia Locklear. She did a great job! Photographer was provided by Kahn Santori Photography. They were shooting all night long. I am sure they got some fabulous shoots!

Congratulations Raquel and Michael!

Katie and Dan 9-5-09

Katie and Dan’s ceremony was held at the Concorde Inn located in Clinton Township. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful! I loved how although the ceremony was indoors you felt as if you were outside. I highly recommend the Concorde Inn for a beautiful and unique ceremony site.

Their reception was at the Partridge Creek Banquet also located in Clinton Township. I loved Katie and Dan’s favors/escort cards. Who doesn’t like a bottle of wine! Their reception was perfect. I loved all of Katie’s DIY projects from the table numbers to the menus everything looked wonderful.

The flowers were provided by
Courtyard Flowers. Katie’s bouquet was gorgeous and I am very excited to create a painting for her. Photography was provided by Aava Photography. I am sure their pictures will be great. Their photographer didn’t miss a beat.

One of my favorite things from Katie and Dan’s wedding was their cake. Their cake was stunning. I loved the ribbon and brooch. The cake was from
Chef Leslie. And of course it tasted delicious!

Music was provided by Rent-A-DJ. Kelly was amazing. She kept the dance floor packed all night long. If you are looking for a great DJ than Kelly is your girl!

Katie and Dan also had a photo booth. Rock the Booth was great to work with! If you are considering a photo booth I highly recommend
Rock the Booth.

Congratulations Katie and Dan!

Michelle and Jason 8-30-09

Michelle and Jason were a great couple to work with! Michelle did a ton of DIY projects and I have to say that none of her projects looked DIY, they all looked professionally done!

Their ceremony was at Belle Isle. The rain stopped just before the ceremony and the sun even made a brief appearance during the ceremony. Michelle looked amazing! I loved how her dress was blowing in the wind. I also loved the umbrellas that Michelle had. It was such great idea. The bucket said, "For rain or shine".

Their reception was at The Gazebo Banquet Center in Warren. All of Michelle’s projects really pulled the room together. I loved everything about their reception. You really saw Jason's and Michelle’s personality in the décor. Not only did they have a candy buffet they also have a caricature artist which was a hit. The guest loved it! There was a line during the entire reception.
Michelle and Jason decided to skip the traditional wedding cake. They had cupcakes provided by Baking by Jen. I loved the cake topper! Jen said that she charges for onlthe ingredients only. She also said you could get a wedding cake for as low as $50. I did try the cupcakes and they were very tasty. This would be a great option for the budget bride.

Photography was provided by J Leigh Photography. I am anxious to see the professional pictures! J Leigh Photography has wedding package starting at just $450!

Congratulations Michelle and Jason! Thank you for letting me part of your special day.

Jennifer and Chris 8-29-09

Jenny and Chris were married in Las Vegas a couple of weeks before their reception. Their reception was at Villa Penna in Sterling Heights. The staff at Villa Penna was wonderful to work with and the food was wonderful! The guest favors were a very cute set of tea cups. I love favors that the guests can use for years to come.

Jenny and Chris had a live band, The Coachmen which the guests really enjoyed.
Linens were provided by the always amazing Fabulous Events. Floral alternating arrangements were provided by the equally amazing Viviano’s. The room looked beautiful.
The cake was made by Rosemary Miller and really captured the look of their wedding.
Photography was provided by Modern Photoglyphs. Harold is an amazing photographer! He is not only extremely talented he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. By the time I got home from the wedding Harold sent over these preview pictures.

Congratulations Jenny and Chris your wedding was beautiful!
