Nick and Paula

August 19

When I met with Paula, Nick and Paula’s parents, they were starting from ground zero. A few things that they did know were that they wanted an elegant wedding and they needed a wedding planner that would walk with them, and more importantly, guide them through the entire planning process.

Keeping the design aesthetic consistent in every detail was essential. What started as a simple burgundy and grey color scheme evolved into a romantic and dimensional color palette with shades of deep reds, blushes, and pops of mauve.

With both the ceremony and reception in ballrooms, it was important to embrace these elegant styles while incorporating some important traditions. With Nick being raised Catholic and Paula having a Jewish background, they wanted their entire wedding celebration to be special and meaningful for them but welcoming and inclusive for all. The beautiful chuppah they stood under had her Grandpa’s prayer shawl hanging above them and was adorned in hundreds of flowers by my team. They had more traditional Catholic vows and then ended with the Jewish stomping of the glass at the end of the ceremony.

With the tall ceilings at McKay Ballroom, we incorporated tall arrangements to really fill the space. The white dupioni linens set the stage for the tablescapes and all the small details like the burgundy velvet ribbons and white blooms that were placed at every place setting. The evening was filled with a memorable Father of the Bride speech, Paula surprising Nick with a soloist to serenade their first dance, and the hora. It was truly a wonderful celebration and I loved being a part of it. Congratulations to Paula and Nick!

November 24

People always find it fun that I stay in touch with a lot of my past brides. But the truth is, these brides and I have spent countless hours together over many months, planning such an important day, that it only seems natural to stay in touch. And with every referral, birth announcement or impromptu coffee date that comes my way, it’s just a small reminder to me that what I do matters.

Cue Katherine, a past bride of mine and now a small business owner (x2). She and her husband live in the most beautiful home, on the east side of the state, that they are restoring and where she also runs her interior design business from.

When I received an email from Katherine wanting me to be the floral designer for one of her clients, I was immediately flattered and excited. The mood board she sent and the ideas she had put together were amazing. The overall aesthetic could be described as Old World Charm. Elegant antiques where accented by a rich color palette. Shades of reds and deep blue were accented with blush and gold. Velvet ribbon was wrapped around the bouquets, which consisted of peonies, ranunculus, and garden roses, and greenery was tucked behind the antique broaches the men wore. Entering the ballroom guests were greeted with sparkling chandeliers, beautiful crown molding, and glowing candles. Every centerpiece was a mini vignette, consisting of different vintage items that had all been gathered by Katherine.

Being a part of this gorgeous wedding was a dream and getting to work with a previous bride is always a plus. Congratulations Mike and Tanya and thank you for letting us be part of such a special day!

AJ and Molly

July 30

“Thou art as wise as thou art beautiful.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

This wedding had everything a summer wedding should have. Warm weather, a custom made moon photo booth, hundreds of twinkling lights and foraged greenery hanging overhead, and the sweetest couple.

Working with Molly, a talented graphic designer, was a dream. She had a beautiful vision of a romantic wedding, drawing inspiration and style from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Having the wedding in a dreamy and enchanting wooded area was a give, so they chose Johnson Park as their perfect backdrop.

Summer weddings in Grand Rapids (rather – Michigan) are wonderful and beautiful. An outdoor summer wedding in Michigan can be downright glorious… but that’s if the weather cooperates and isn’t humid and hot or pouring rain. Basically, 5% of them have perfect weather. Molly and AJ’s wedding was one of the lucky ones, and we took advantage of it.

The ceremony was located on the rolling green lawn and after, guests were seen strolling around, sipping on cocktails and playing lawn games. The reception was held inside the pavilion, where we brought as much nature indoors as possible. We created a canopy of hanging greenery and hundreds of twinkle lights to mimic the stars at night. We covered the tables in whimsical garden greenery and shades of purple blooms. With the bar on the large wraparound deck, guests were encouraged to enjoy the beautiful summer night.

Laura + Zach

October 14

I have known Laura’s family for many years (and even had the privilege of helping her older sister Elizabeth with her wedding), so you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to help plan Laura’s wedding. Laura is such a warm and gracious person, one of those people you just want to do anything and everything for. She was an absolute joy to work with because she appreciated every small detail that I showed her, was open to so many ideas, but also knew what she liked.

Zach and Laura were with married on a cool autumn day in October at her home church. Even with a wedding day weather forecast of rain and thunderstorms, you would never have known the skies were gray given both of their excited, happy and unfazed demeanors. After the ceremony the rain did stop for a few hours, giving the wedding party time to gallivant around Holmdene Manor and Downtown Grand Rapids before they had to arrive at the beautiful Ballroom at McKay Tower to greet guests. Instead of the traditional receiving line after the ceremony or going from table to table at the reception, Laura and Zach incorporated a different way to greet their guests. All four parents were there in the foyer to greet guests the moment they reached the ballroom. Once inside the ballroom, Laura and Zach spent a few minutes with each guest, greeting and hugging him/her, making sure each guest felt special and appreciated. It was the sweetest thing ever and so inline with the character of Zach and Laura.

A color palette of soft pinks and peaches were accented with dusty gray blues and ivory. We brought in gold and silver tones, which kept things interesting, but still remaining polished eclectic.

During the spring and summer months I normally have a full garden to cut from, but by October there is less to work with. Thankfully, I was still able to use dahlia, zinnias, sedum and tons of foraged greenery, giving her flowers a romantic and whimsical style.

We had a custom monogram designed that we incorporated in the hand letterpress invitations and the place cards.

With a grand ballroom backdrop, the family style meal created a warm and intimate atmosphere, starting the flow of comfortable conversation and giving guests a chance to talk and interact. The rocking dueling pianos made sure the dance floor was full all night.

Sarah + Matt

January 28

Winter weddings and the couples that get married during these months are quickly becoming my favorite. I think there is some something so special about a couple that gets married during, what many consider, the coldest and dreariest part of the year (at least for us folks in Michigan). While many couples choose to get married when the weather is warm and when nature is in its full colorful glory, what many don’t realize is that the winter holds its own glorious beauty. Fresh fallen snow covering the ground, the glistening of frost on the trees, and the chill that fills the air. It takes a special couple to realize that winter is a magical time to get married.

Enter Sarah and Matt. These two were amazing. They truly were so much fun to work with when it came to planning the details of their wedding. They knew what was important to them and what they wanted. When it came to the design, Sarah gave me her style: industrial rustic glam. With a color palette of navy blue, gold and white, we played up the glam factor but still kept things modern and classic. Sarah gave me free range with the flowers, so I got to play with some wonderful flowers that I don’t normally get to design with. I’m still dying over those feathery fringed tulips and dramatic anemone.

Add in some glam with sequins, some custom suits designed by the Bride, and a killer band, you have a fabulous winter wedding.
