Thanks to Fox 2 for having us on “The Nine” last week. If you’re looking for some pro planning tips, you can watch our segment here.
90% of our clients are out of state, and as much as they want to show off their Michigan pride at their wedding, it’s also nice to weave in a little about their current home, too. Remember those cute Chicago posters we displayed on a late night food station last month? Here are more from another designer. Represent your ‘hood!
So much to say about this couple. I met Monica 2 years ago when she applied to work with VLD. Turns out the fashion industry needed her more though, so it didn’t work out, BUT we kept in touch and when her guy proposed, she knew exactly who to call. Monica and Brian, we are SO happy for you - you are gorgeous inside and out. Looking forward to working at the beautiful Montague Inn Lodging and Restaurant in Saginaw today (have you seen the property - it’s gorg!). CONGRATULATIONS to Monica & Brian! (photo cred: jr magat)
I keep seeing blogs ask stylists and planners if they had to plan their wedding all over again, what would they do? Although I loved my The Great Gatsby-themed wedding and certainly wouldn’t want to change a thing about it, OOOOH would this ever make a great venue! Anyone else want to get all dressed up, sip champagne and listen to jazz in a giant field of ranunculus? We’d all have to travel to The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA to attend, but I’d be okay with that. :) (photo credit: the divine dish)
Had an incredible weekend that consisted of getting to see the fabulous David Stark Design and Productionpresent his work not once but TWICE. This was very exciting for our entire team, as we deeply respect his approach and feel we have a very similar philosophy on what it takes to produce an unforgettable event. (Hint: it involves taking risks and daring to be different. YES - exactly!) Anyway, it was awesome. :) Check out his new book ‘The Art of the Party’ if you have the chance. It’s so inspiring and absolutely gorgeous!
Cue the confetti! Our 2013 wedding season is officially right around the corner, which means our office hours are changing. As of April 28th and through late October, we are available by appt only Tuesday-Friday and are closed Sunday/Monday, unless prior arrangements have been made. This is when we’ll sleep, hang on the lake, and show off all your cool event photos to our proud friends and families. ;) Thanks for your patience!
Just in time for our Downton Abbey/garden party-themed auction next weekend, I found these. Who needs striped straws when you can have PATTERNED straws? Woo! (Only a matter of time before I “need” step and repeat VLD circle logo straws, too. Just sayin’!) More fun prints here. Cheers!
