Zingerman Corman Farms ~ Mary + Eric 10/2/16




On Sunday October 2, 2016 Mary and Eric tied the knot at Zingerman's Cornman Farms in Dexter, Michigan. Mary and her bridesmaids started off the day in a little white house on the property where they got their hair and makeup done.



Eric and his Groomsmen got ready in the bottom level of the barn 





 Once everyone was finished getting ready the Chinese door games started. First, the bridesmaids each came up with a question about Mary that Eric, with the help of his groomsmen, which they had to answer correctly, or else they would have to do pus-hups for every wrong answer.  Luckily, he answered them all correctly. Then they had to hold a yoga pose (tree pose) for 5 seconds, and then serenade the bridesmaids and moms loud enough so that the bride could hear. The couple gave the mother's personalized gifts. 





Finally, Mary and Eric are able to have their first look.  After all of the Chinese door games, they took pictures all around the farm. 
















The bridal party had the most amazing flowers! 



Seriously, look at this bouquet isn't it gorgeous? We just love the colors and texture! 


As the guests began to arrive Mary and her bridesmaids went back inside so no one would be able to see her. The ceremony took place right outside the house. The front of the house was decorated with a beautiful garland. 



Once it is time for the ceremony to start Mary came from the side of the house. After the ceremony guests began to move to cocktail hour which was in the bottom level of the barn. The barn was decorated with candles, flowers, and pictures of Mary and Eric.  








They did it !



Log sawing tradition! Our bride is strong! 




 The Youre The Bride team was busy setting up everything inside the tent, barn, and house for Mary and Eric's big day.



Soon after, the guests moved to the tent for the reception. Each table was decorated with a colorful flower arrangement. We  also placed sprigs of rosemary inside the napkins to add a nice touch of color. Mary and Eric made their grand entrance to the song Walking On Sunshine. Dinner was served soon after. The newlyweds spent the rest of the night dancing with friends and family.

Noah's Event Venue ~ Tonya + Drake 10/07/16


Tonya and Drake had one amazing wedding day. They got married at Noah's Event Venue and partied there all night long! The start of the day was spent dolling up all the girls making them look as beautiful as ever! A friend of theirs was there to help do all the ladies hair, and their makeup was done by Renata.




After all the girls were done getting ready, Flourish Photography took some amazing pictures of the girls. After the girls were done with pictures the guys were next! 



Wedding time! Tonya was escorted down the aisle by her father. The song A Thousand Years by the Piano Guys played as they walked. Her father gave her away to her soon to be husband Drake. The ceremony was short but very romantic. They left the ceremony dancing down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. Jackson! 





After the ceremony ended more pictures by Flourish Photography took place outside. The newly-weds were so happy they were glowing! 




Next up is party time! They had their reception in the banquet center of Noah's Event Venue. They had their big grand entrance to the song I Will Be There For You the theme song from Friends with a little  fun with their bridal party to a song My Boo by Ghost Town DJ's. The whole wedding party had a blast walking in and dancing in celebration of the newly married couple! After the grand entrance they cut into the cake made by Cakes By Emma. After the toasts were made they had a wonderful meal catered by Kristina's catering. 



Shortly after their meal was finished they did the ceremonial dances. Tonya and Drake's first dance as a married couple was done to the song A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. Next was Tonya and her father's dance to the song I Loved Her First. After they finished Drake and his mother danced, which led to everyone getting out on the dance floor! 



Tonya and Drake had the wonderful day they have always dreamed of! Congratulations to the newly married couple!

A Day to Remember: Make Your Wedding Stand Out Among the Rest!


We like to think our weddings will be the greatest events known to humankind. That the day will be remembered in fond, vivid detail by every attendee. But let’s face it: sometimes, certain weddings just tend to dissolve into the memories of other weddings! Over time, all these weddings can sort of blur into one memory. And that’s why you should make sure your wedding is unique. You should make sure it stands out among the several wedding memories that your guests will have in the future.

Of course, that’s not to say you should complicate things when it isn’t necessary to. If you just want to get your relationship legally recognized as soon as possible, then by all means, do it as quick and as simply as possible. But a lot of people know that their guests need something more. After all, they’re coming all this way to see you on this momentous occasion. Why not make a big deal out of it?

So here are a few suggestions that will help make your wedding stand out.

Don’t get married in a church

Seriously, very few people actually enjoy being in a church. Yes, I’m aware that you don’t actually spend that long in the church. Most couples worry about where the reception is going to be! But why not pick a great venue that can work as both? You should probably consider an outdoor wedding, come to think of it. If you pick an amazing outdoor wedding venue, it’s bound to be remembered for a long time by the guests.


Avoid clich├ęd invites

Sometimes, people start to dread a wedding when they see the invite. The invite can actually tell you quite a lot about what the wedding is going to be like. A lot of the time, you’ll get very simple but elegant white and gold invites. Yes, they’re simple and elegant. But they’re also kinda, I dunno… boring? You should probably look into sending out some unique wedding invitations. Don’t bother with the clich├ęd types everyone else sends out.

Invite the pets

Yeah, so this is where we really dive off at the deep end. Hey, there are definitely weirder things you could bring to your wedding! And let’s face it: everyone loves pets, right? If you can get your dogs and cats to behave, you could even try putting some formal wear on them fitting for the glorious occasion. Cats, admittedly, aren’t the easiest of wedding guests. Dogs tend to fit in much easier. And there have been plenty of couples who have done this! If nothing else, it makes for amazing photo opportunities.


Play some pranks on your guests

No, I’m not talking about anything really out-there or cruel. I’m not suggesting that you turn your wedding into an episode of MTV’s Jackass. But this is a prime opportunity to plays some pranks on your friends! A wedding is really when they’ll least expect to be played in such a way. Plus, it’s a great way to make the wedding feel unique and light-hearted. Check out some amazing prank ideas for weddings!
