Ashley & Trevor

Ceremony & Reception Location: Silver Garden of Southfield

Wedding Colors: Hot Pink & Orange

# Guests: 100

Emergency Kit Items Used: Scissors, Advil

Ashley & Trevor were married in July, with both the ceremony and reception taking place at Silver Garden of Southfield. All weather reports had claimed it was to rain that day, but we lucked out big time and the day ended up being completely clear. Not a drop all night! Ashley was able to have her outdoor wedding at Silver Garden's gazebo on the grounds (phew!!!).

Ashley sported a huge smile ALL day and ALL night. Both the bride's and groom's families were so very kind and welcoming.

Her wedding colors were hot pink and orange, and they really popped in the room. Silver Garden has pretty neutral decor that can work with most any color scheme. Linens were already set and ready to go by the time I arrived, The Linen Closet ( did a beautiful job on the sashes, chair covers, table runners, and table swag. I then got to setting out all of the wedding accessories, centerpieces, favors, and lots of pink & orange petals.

I also got to work with the fabulous Amanda Williams (; she was my own wedding photographer just a few months ago and we love her. The woman literally drops to her stomach or lays on the ground spontaneously to get the shots she wants....and on this day, she was even able to get up on the roof to get some ceremony photographs. I can't wait to see how those turn out! (Update, see some pro photos here)

DJ Larry Nichols of DJ By Design kept the crowd dancing all night long. I don't recall too many moments after dinner where the dance floor got a break.

Ziad, Mo and Kari at Silver Garen were also very helpful and accomodating whenever anything was need it. Mo even helped me later on, at 11:00 at night in the dark when I was on my hands and knees picking up all those pink & orange flower petals!! Thanks, all of you!

All in all, it was a great day. Best wishes, Ashley & Trevor! (They are en route to Europe as I type!)
