Considering the cold, rain & wind the previous day, Jennifer & Michael's wedding day turned out to have GREAT weather! Both the ceremony and reception were at Canterbury Castle in Lake Orion; what a unique location!

The King Henry ballroom was decked out in red, black & white and looked absolutely cool. Chair Covers & Linens did an excellent job on the linens, as did Beth at Amazing Petals on all of the bridal florals and centerpieces. Instead of tent place cards, Jennifer had little trees on the registration table, with guest names hanging on cards. I took a photo, but today my blog is not cooperating with me to be able to show you any more photos!

Jennifer & Michael were so easy-going and completely adorable. Their ceremony was simple and to the point and went off smoothly despite poor Jennifer shedding some heavy (but happy!) tears immediately before her mom walked her down the aisle.

Ron and his assistant at Night & Day Productions ( kept the dance floor going all. night. long. This surprised me since this was a smaller crowd, but Ron knew exactly what to play and when to play it - so much so that the couple hired him on the spot to stay even later than he was originally contracted! It was also great working again with Jason at JS Photography (, he does gorgeous work and really knows how to get the job done quickly and beautifully.

Guests were treated to appetizers on arrival, and later a yumy buffet dinner, so good. I also must say that the cake by Flour To Flour was delish, especially the frosting! I love me some good frosting and have become a cake conaisseur of sorts lately!

Other than a stain on Jennifer's dress and me suffering a minor stab with boutonniere pin (ouch!), the day went off without a hitch! *Of course* I always attribute this certainly not only to myself, but also to a great team of vendors who cooperate with each other.

Congratulations Jennifer & Michael!

Spittin' Image Photo Booth Fun!

On Friday I had the fun experience of working with Derak at Spittin' Image on the launch of their new photo booth at the Downriver Italian-American Club in Wyandotte. It was strange not to be coordinating, but what a fun time!

Congrats to Tara & Rob, hope you enjoyed looking at your scrap book as much as we enjoyed making it!
