Carmen & Cory – 4/13/13

Carmen & Cory contacted Bride Support while planning their wedding from out of state. While living in Virginia, they were looking forward to their Minnesota wedding – but having a main contact here was a nice asset for them. I helped suggest vendors in the area who could serve them well and made sure that their wedding was all lined up to go perfectly once they arrived here for the big day. Although April was a bit colder (and more snow flying!) than we had hoped for…the day still went on!

We ran a rehearsal first thing in the morning, once everyone was in town and then separated the bridal party for getting ready. The venue got dressed up for their shabby chic day while the bridal party and families took photos around the picturesque venue. Once ceremony time came – guests were seated up in the loft of the barn in pews, while listening to some of the coolest ceremony music I’ve heard – a trio of guitar, banjo and fiddle (from a group that the couple plays with in VA!). After the sweet ceremony, guests headed downstairs to the main room of the barn for cocktail hour and dinner. Once the dance ensued back upstairs in the loft – dessert was served and the DJ kept the party going…including a portion of the string group coming back out – even with the Bride playing the washboard!

What a fun and genuine wedding day for a sweet couple. Congrats, you two!

“Meredith’s help is exactly what I needed. She put my mind at ease during the planning process and helped me make sure everything was covered. She would respond to my emails and phone calls very quickly, and was always upbeat, positive, and friendly. The day-of, all of my anxiety disappeared once she took over. She handled everything so I was able to sit back and enjoy the day. In fact, I’m sure there are many issues she took care of that I am completely unaware of. Kinda nice not to have to deal with issues during your wedding day, let me tell you! I could not recommend her more!”

Jessica & Mike – 4/6/13

Jessica & Mike were such a sweet couple to work with on their laid-back, romantic wedding.

The day started off with an intimate first look at the conservatory at the Minneapolis sculpture garden – such an idyllic place for a moment like that! Soon enough, the bridal party and families congregated at FIVE Event Center in the heart of Minneapolis. FIVE is such a unique and fun place to host guests – so fun! One unique item that I loved seeing in the details before the ceremony was that the couple opted to give the three ring bearers a unique take on boutonnieres – miniature super hero figurines on magnets! The boys were thrilled to get to put them on their shirts. 🙂 The candlelit ceremony was super sweet and meaningful to the couple with a relative as the officiant and a phenomenal vocalist/guitarist who made it beautiful. After the ceremony, guests moved downstairs for cocktail hour while the upstairs area was flipped to reception set-up. Once welcomed back up, guests were treated to a dinner, hilarious toasts by those close to the couple and a great dance party.

Congratulations, Jessica & Mike – it was a pleasure being a part of your big day!

“Meredith did a great job as our day-of wedding coordinator! She was very organized and extremely helpful with any questions that I had during the planning process. Our wedding ceremony and reception went really well – and it was great not having to worry about anything since Meredith helped so much on our big day. I would definitely recommend Meredith to future brides and grooms!”
