Ashley & Tom’s wedding was such a sweet, sweet day for such an adorable couple.
They invited their guests to a unique wedding locale – an old Girl Scout campground north of the metro…some guests were even overnight guests in the cabins! The ceremony took place on the lawn in front of the lake – and although it was a bit windy, no one seemed to mind. With an honest, loving message and a fantastic rendition of “Such Great Heights” by a groomsman – guests were moved by the touching ceremony. After the couple was wed, guests gathered around tiki torches on the side lawn for cocktails, hors deouvres and lawn games.
Soon, the party started inside the hall – which was a rustic beauty adorned with white lights, burlap and woodsy decor and candles. The emcee began with a hilarious introduction/history of each bridal party member, a sweet first dance for the couple and a rousing rendition of Hava Nagila by the band and guests. The couple treated their guests to a hearty meal by Brasa and pies for dessert. They were then entertained with the band, DJ, fireworks and photo booth throughout the night.
The day was full of love and friends and family were thrilled to be celebrating such a perfect couple. Congrats, you two!

Ashley & Tom wrote the following review…
“As a born party planner myself, it is my duty to tell the world that Meredith from Bride Support is an absolute Rock Star when it comes to coordinating a wedding! From the moment we first connected I was impressed. When I sent out inquiry emails to several planners, she was the only one who got back to me within minutes (the others got back to me days later). I felt like she had my back throughout the entire process. Every frantic email I sent her and every weird request I asked of her and every crazy question I couldn’t find the answer to, she was their to help me, to relax me and to make me feel like this day was going to happen just the way I planned it in my head, and it certainly did. And this is coming from a party hostess who can never sit still at her own parties, always feeling like I need to tend to something to keep the party going, I knew I needed someone I could trust to do the job as good as me… She was better! My wedding was definitely not a textbook wedding, it was outdoors at an old run down camp with very few amenities and no support staff on duty. The way Meredith took charge of the day and the duties needed to be accomplished to recreate this space to make it magical is beyond me. Not a single detail was forgotten by her (and trust me, I am painfully detailed). I didn’t have to move a muscle the entire day, except to walk down the aisle, dance, take pictures and spend time with my loved ones. If I had to do this all over again, you can guarantee Meredith would be by my side.”
