Our Lady of Good Counsel Plymouth ~ Rose + Brandon 7/26/14

Rose and Brandon hired You’re The Bride to provide day-of-coordination services for their July 26th nuptials just a month prior to the special day. YTB started our day at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church in Plymouth, MI bright and early to set everything up for the ceremony and afternoon reception. The reception was held at a hall on the lower level of the church immediately following the ceremony. The room had large floor to ceiling windows which cast the room in natural light and provided gorgeous views of the perfectly manicured lawn outside. The YTB team went to work right away and set up the tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces, and all other decor to create the happy couple’s vision for their reception.

When photographer Jamie from Gingersnapography Family Photography arrived with the bride, we helped coordinate the First Looks. We hid the groom as Jamie and Rose scoped out the perfect location for the first look shots. When it was time, we brought Brandon out to an anxiously awaiting Rose. 

Before the ceremony the bridal party had a little fun taking photos on the lovely church grounds and everyone looked amazing.

As the ceremony began, the YTB team finished putting the finishing touches on the reception space below. 

After the ceremony, guests found their way downstairs to the reception space and the party got started! 
The happy couple made their grand entrance and everyone enjoyed a nice lunch. The speeches were heartfelt and sweet and everyone was smiling as they raised their glass to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ekblad. 
After lunch the ceremonial dances were started and Rose and Brandon looked so in love as they held each other close and danced for the first time as husband and wife. 
The dance floor was opened and the afternoon reception time didn’t hinder the party at all. The dance floor filled with friends and family who were ready to dance the afternoon away.

The day turned out beautifully and everyone had a blast. 
Congrats Rose and Brandon! You’re The Bride is honored to have been a part of your special day. We wish you all the happiness in the world.
