The Dearborn Inn ~ Jennifer + Matt 9/9/11

Jennifer and her Mom hired You’re The Bride in January to help pull the details together for this fabulous wedding. I coordinated Jen’s brother’s wedding back in 2006 so that is how they knew me. It was so great to work with this family again! Jennifer went with my middle package since she was a out of town bride living in California and needed some extra planning assistance in addition the Rehearsal and Day-of Coordination that come with this service.

Plan A was to have the couple get married outside at the Dearborn Inn near the gazebo but unfortunately Mother Nature had another idea! I have never had one rained out ceremony in 12 years so I have had a pretty good run until now. My Assistant Melissa and I had to quickly move on to plan B and move everything we had set up for the outdoor ceremony inside to the ballroom. The staff helped re-arrange the chairs to make an aisle way on the dancefloor. In the end the couple was married and had a beautiful celebration. With Mother Nature we never know what she is going to do so as experienced wedding planners we just have to roll with the punches and do the best we can to get our couples married!

Jennifer wanted to give her guests a special treat so she ordered Mackinac Island Fudge favors and they
were of course delicious!

Since Jen and Matt live in California they choose “California Love” as their Grand Entrance song. This is one of my favorite party songs so I was super excited!

They served their guests a signature drink  called the “First Kiss” which was a Cosmopolitan.

The First look is always my favorite !
