Jennifer and David 10-13-12 (Stephanie)

Jennifer and David were such a great couple to work with. Jennifer was one of my brides who I didn't meet with in person until the day of her wedding, but our total communication was sufficient and the day went off without a hitch!

Jennifer and David were married at the Grosse Pointe Academy Chapel in Grosse Pointe and their reception was at the Meeting House Grand Ballroom in Plymouth. As there was quite a bit of setup at the Meeting House, I focused primarily on the reception.

Twig and Berries Event Design provided the flowers. They had a variety of tall and low centerpieces.

The always wonderful Affordable Elegance provided linens

 Lakes Cakes provided the cake. It was so good!


The guestbook was so awesome! It was filled with pages of fancy envelopes glued inside. Inside the envelopes were blank cards that the guests could write a message, advice, or well wishes to the bride and groom. I have never seen anything like it before and I love the idea!

Other key vendors included:
Danielle Murphy Photography
Limo transportation by AAA Limo
Photobooth by Shutterbooth
DJ services by Disc Jockey Productions

Remember Films provided videography service. I was so excited to work with them again! I love Stephanie and Lee's work so much! Please check out their preview video of Jennifer and David's day below and definitely contact them if you are looking for a videographer!

Congratulations Jennifer and David!

Rachelle and Kyle 10-12-12 (Stephanie)

Rachelle and Kyle's wedding was such a party. Not only were Rachelle and Kyle great to work with, their families were great as well! The dance floor was packed all night long and the party kept going all the way up until the end of the night!

Their ceremony was held at Our Lady of Sarrows in Farmington and their reception was at Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield. 

Fairytale Productions Wedding & Events provided videography, J.S. Photography provided photography services, Entertainment Express provided limo transportation, Westbourn Market provided the flowers, Linens and Beyond provided linens and chair covers, Event Entertainment provided the photobooth, and Platinum Mix Productions provided DJ services. The cake was provided by the Pastry Palace and it was as good as it looked!

Short centerpiece
 Each table had a handmade card with either a place or something that Rachelle and Kyle (such as penguins! as you can see in the below photos) like. The card had a caption describing the place or the thing liked. They were so cute!

 Tall centerpiece
 Medium centerpiece

 Escort card table (Rachelle and her mom put together the beautiful centerpiece)

Although impossible to take photos of, I wanted to mention that Rachelle and Kyle and their bridal party performed a choreographed dance to Chris Brown's "Forever" following the formal dances and it as soo awesome! I was really impressed with how much work must have gone into learning the dance I know the guests all loved it!

Congratulations Rachelle and Kyle! 
Thanks for letting GJE be part of your special day!

Becca and Tommy 09-29-12 (Stephanie)

Becca and Tommy were such a fun, laid-back couple to work with. Since there was quite a bit of setup to do at the reception site, my assistant and I focused mainly on the reception site and setting up. The ceremony was held at the White House Wedding Chapel in Warren and their reception was at DeCarlo's, also in Warren.

Photography was provided by Shannon at Clicking Through Life

 I love this super cute "Just Married" banner

 Groom's cake. So funny!
