Laurel Manor Banquet and Conference Center ~ Kate + Scott 7-9-11

Kate and Scott live in New York and hired You’re The Bride last July to assist with Day-of Coordination and their wedding rehearsal.  Her now husband is from Redford and his parents live only a few short miles from me so we had a connection right there! We exchanged a lot of emails over the course of a year and I was so happy she relied on me for her wedding advice.  I love assisting my clients when they are not certain so I can help them make the best decisions possible for their big day. Since she is a elementary music school teacher she was very organized and provided me with every detail so I could carry out her wishes since she was the star of her show! We had a very successful day and only needed a few small items from our handy emergency kit.

This couple needed a few vendor recommendations so we told them about our great partners for hair and makeup, flowers and they used You’re The Bride for their wedding invitations.

My camera was not working the best so I apologize in advance for some of the blurry pictures 🙁

Kate and Scott were a very sweet couple with such a spark between them! I can tell these two will be together forever! They have the most fun and loving family too. I really enjoyed watching their Grandma’s boogie on the dance floor.  Speaking of the dance floor it was packed the whole evening and I remember one thing Kate did not want is the “Electric Slide” but the guests formed one and she and Scott seemed to jump right in and love it! Sometimes letting go and whatever happens on the dance floor really does make for a fun night. I watched this bride and groom dance up a storm and boy did they have the moves!

That’s right a Chocolate Ganache covered cake!! YUM!

My two favorite moments of the night were when Kate and Scott did their first dance to “The Lover’s Waltz”. I think they must have had some kind of ball room dancing lessons because they were good enough to be on Dancing With The Stars! The second was the Best Man speech. It was quite entertaining and really told me a lot about this couple. I hear a LOT of speeches and this by far was one of the best!

Michigan and New York shaped chocolates!

Kate and Scott had a fabulous time with their guests who traveled from all over to celebrate their special day. I can’t forget to mention that we used school buses from Catholic Central High School to transport the guests from the hotel to the ceremony and to the reception. I am bummed that I was not able to get a picture! Now the new Mr. and Mrs. Bowling are relaxing on a beach in Hawaii !!! Congrats and thank you so much for letting You’re The Bride help with your day. I loved working with you and wish you every happiness!!
