Maggie and Andrew 6-18-11

Maggie and Andrew had their ceremony and reception at Earhart Manor. Which is located on the campus of Concordia University in Ann Arbor.  Earhart is perfect for an outdoor wedding! I loved the ceremony area.

 I loved her escort rocks. It really tied in the outdoor garden theme.
 The cake was gorgeous and beyond delicious! The cake was provided by Queen of Hearts.
 Maggie is such a sweetheart. Here she is in her reception dress getting ready for the bouquet toss.
Congratulations Maggie and Andrew! Thank you so much for letting me be apart of your special day!

Lisa and Henry 5-28-11

Lisa and Henry had their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Dearborn Inn. When I arrived the bridal party was just starting the traditional door games. Henry had to prove his love for Lisa by completing fun game with his groomsmen. The first game pictures was pretty funny…Henry’s best man had to put a hard boiled egg up on leg of Henry’s pants and down the other side.

 It started out good but when the egg got to the center Henry couldn’t help but laugh : )

Anyone ever put a playing card up to their mouth and suck in so it didn’t fall off? Well this is kind of how the second game went. I’m not exactly sure of the paper they used. It was sort of like a rice paper but the guys had to pass it from one person to another. It did fall a few times and I do think there were a few accidental pecks on the lips.

For the third game they had to go a group push up. It was much harder then it looks!

 I love the dresses!

You could feel the rain in the air all day and thank goodness it held off for the ceremony!

 Mr. and Mrs.!
 Escort table

The beautiful cake was provided by The Pastry Palace. They always do an excellent job!
 The groom's cake
Viviano Flower Shop did all the flowers. The tall floral arrangements were on half of the tables.
The other tables had simple centerpieces of roses.
 The place setting and the favors. The box on the napkin had a set of gorgeous chop sticks.

The tables looked amazing. The linens and chair covers were provided by Affordable elegance chair covers & linens
 The head table
I loved that they used Henry's saber to cut the cake.
Congratulations Lisa and Henry!
