Stacie & Mike – Video

I love it when I find out my brides are hiring a videographer for the wedding day! Not only does it thrill me that they’ll have a fabulous memory of their big day – but then I get this in my email and I get to spend the next 15 minutes reliving the wedding day of my lovely couples. John at Vibrant Films was a pleasure to work beside and put out an outstanding product for Stacie & Mike. Enjoy!

Undoubtedly lovely floor-length, flowy bridesmaid dresses. Of course, I love the babies breath bouquets too…

Quirky t-shirt wedding favor idea for your guests…why not?!

Stacie & Mike – 7/7/12

Stacie came to Bride Support after about a year’s worth of planning when she started realizing that she’d spent a lot of hours planning a day that she wouldn’t have much control over. She wanted us to step in, make sure she was dotting all of her i’s and crossing all of her t’s and to make sure that her day went exactly as she was envisioning. And we did just that!

Stacie was a dream bride to work with – very thorough, communicative and we had everything wrapped up with her 2 whole weeks before the wedding! Working in advance pays off, people! 🙂

Stacie, Mike and their families were a super sweet crew to work with and help out. They planned a spectacular wedding weekend for their guests and truly made their guests feel taken care of. From the welcome reception, groom’s dinner cruise to the decadent wedding and send-off brunch – Stacie & Mike pulled out all of the stops.

It wasn’t only Stacie & Mike’s “the one that got away” love story that made their connection obvious. Their love for each other was evident in every word spoken during their sentimental ceremony and every dance they shared throughout the reception. They took time to include lots of special details that were truly them – instead of just obligations for a wedding day. Their guestbook was Stacie’s grandmother’s china pattern – which held a special spot in her life, they lit a memorial candle and had a special reading in regard to it, their boxer dog was the maid-of-honor, they made recipe books as favors (with their e-pics included!) and then got another favor from Mali (the dog) on their way out. The decor transformed the space, the food was out-of-this-world, and guests could not stop gushing all night.

What a grand event to be a part of…we’re so honored to have gotten to help!

Stacie & Mike wrote the following review…

“There are not enough words to describe how AMAZING Meredith is. I planned my whole wedding down to every single detail, so I didn’t need help with the execution of the plans, but I we DID need someone to make sure everything went off without a hitch. Meredith was the best decision we made. She is so detail-oriented and organized and she thinks of everything. We met several times throughout the time leading up to the wedding and she triple-checked every note she took from our conversations. She knew who everyone was the day of the wedding and responded IMMEDIATELY to my every question or concern.

She was a source of calm for me from the moment I met her until the last centerpiece was picked up off of the tables after the reception. We were SO impressed with the way she made everything flow and how she remembered exactly how I told her everything should be set up and executed. Throughout the night, if we stopped to look for her, she was at our side in an instant…her constant, watchful eye was always on the VIPs (my groom, my parents, his parents and the wedding party) in case we needed anything.

The only thing that I was bummed about was knowing we were done working together. She is not only good at her job, but she’s so much fun to work with. I would look no further! She is the BEST in the business!”

The Line-up:

Bridesmaids signed the bottom of the brides shoe to be her “something blue.”

Guests signed pieces of the Bride’s grandmother’s china for the couple to display in their home.

Bridesmaids in white! So chic!

The pairs of Groomsmen and Bridesmaids had matching herbs incorporated into their flowers to fit the kitchen/food theme.

The couple set up pictures of loved ones lost and burned a candle at a memorial table during the ceremony.

As part of their ceremony, the Bride & Groom sealed away love notes and a bottle of wine for them to open and replace with new love notes and wine on their anniversary.

The couple’s dog was the Maid of Honor!

Personalized cookbooks – including kitchen engagement photos – as favors at the place settings.

End-of-the-night favors from the dog – chocolate dog bones.
