Penna's ~ Kelly + Tom 9/26/15

Kelly was referred to us by a Mother of the Bride that we worked with about seven years ago. We were delighted as was the bride that we had the date open with only a month to go! Kelly and I (Tracie) met very quickly to get brought up to speed on the details so I could begin to reach out to her vendors and prepare a wedding timeline for the day.  

This church was amazing!

Kelly and her Maids looked beautiful !

Kelly sure was a gorgeous bride and I love her bouquet made by our friends at Viviano's.

The new happy couple!

The Bridal Party having a little pre-reception fun ! 

This was my favorite part of the evening. Dave Santia  is a Speed Painter and was a Usher in the wedding as he is a friend of Tom, the groom. He had an awesome surprise in store for the newlyweds. 

Dave created this masterpiece while painting it upside down! He is amazing! Hoping other clients of mine are interested in this unique treat!

The tables were so elegant with the 3 different looks that Kelly chose.  We placed menu cards and personalized toasting flutes at each place setting, table numbers, set up placecards, Jordan almond favors, lit the centerpiece candles and made sure the room was perfect before guest arrival. 

The final room set-up looked great with champagne linens and black bows. 

Samantha and I set up this really fun candy buffet for the guests. Kelly brought in all of the glass holders and purchased so many different varieties of candy. The guests of course loved it!

I was excited when I heard the Killer Flamingos were the wedding band for the night. I have watched them a few times out and about but it was great to get to meet and work with them. They are so fun and the crowd loves them. If you are looking for a band give them a call you won't be sorry!

Congratulations Kelly and Tom!
You're The Bride is so happy to have been part of your special day!

The Jam Handy Detroit ~ Hong Joo + John 9/5/15

Barbara, the Mother of the Groom contacted me (Tracie) upon the recommendation of Simeon the owner of the Jam Handy in Detroit. She was planning a Korean Dance Party Wedding Reception for her son John and his new bride, Hong Joo. The couple wed in Korea a few months prior and wanted to have a celebration for their Detroit family. I was excited to work with Barbara on helping her secure a caterer, rentals, floral/decor and all of the details together for the special event!

The event took place in an old movie studio in Downtown Detroit which is a completely blank space so everything has to be brought in.  Crisp Khaki linens, a mix of figi mums, succulents, green tric, blue thistle and assorted foliages adorned the space and offered the guest tables a textured look.

Barbara is quite the party planner herself and owned these cute little burplap holders and blue glassware so to trim down on costs we incorporated them into the design.

Notice the beautiful photos taken in Korea from the couples wedding day that Simeon and Georgie from Blumz hung on the wall as a focal point when guests entered the room. The hanging ferns embellished and completed the look along with the theatrical lighting. 


What is a Detroit party without offering the guests some Better Made Potato Chips?

We had a variety of delicious food coming from a local caterer that was served at stations to include Eastern Market, Middle Eastern and of course Korean not to mention delectable signature Detroit desserts! 

Barbara and her two handsome sons!

The back alley was the perfect place to take a break and cool down from all that dancing!

Encore Event Group mixed some great beats all night long and it was quite the party!

Congratulations Hong Joo and John
You're The Bride is so happy to have been part of your special day!
