Jess & Justin – 7/26/13

Jess & Justin were such a sweet couple to work with on their big day. Since they were planning the wedding from their home in California – they wanted someone in Minnesota to help them with their vendor searches while also keeping them on track for their overall wedding planning and design.

This couple chose a great property in downtown Minneapolis to host their guests – the Crowne Plaza Northstar Downtown Minneapolis. The day started with their personal ceremony on the Skygarden – overlooking downtown Minneapolis and the Foshay tower. With the bride’s brother officiating – the ceremony was very custom and fitting for the couple…so sweet! Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the Skygarden as well, before heading inside to the ballroom for the reception. Jess & Justin found super cool escort cards for their guests – frames for their photo booth strip! They names their tables after team mascots from various sporting teams and schools that meant something to them. After dinner, a family member showcased a slideshow of the couple and the families danced to a special song in memory of the bride’s grandfather. No typical wedding cake was found at this wedding – instead, a sundae bar…yum! This crew sure knew how to party – and party, they sure did! What a fun day for a sweet couple…congrats!

Jess & Justin wrote the following review…

“I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Meredith! She is amazing. I was planning a wedding from afar so I used Meredith to go over vendors, talk about logistics and plan a day that my husband and I dreamed of. She listened to our ideas, concerns, budget, etc. and always found options for us. She definitely works hard to get the most up to date and current information for her clients. I could always reach her by email or phone and if I didn’t contact her, she always made sure to check in with us to ensure us being “on-track.” I consider myself a detailed person, however, Meredith tops them all. She is on it!! She made sure that every detail was discussed prior to the event so that she could coordinate the day of the wedding. It was amazing! I didn’t have to worry about one thing on the day of the wedding besides getting married and having fun. She took care of EVERYTHING! She organized vendor arrivals, decor, details, wedding party directions and the overall flow of the day. It was the best money we spent for sure! Additionally, we consider her a friend and an integral part of our wedding day. She is professional, poised and amazing at her job. You can tell she loves what she does and that is why we loved working with her. She gave us immense confidence going into the big day!!”

Samantha & Desmond – 7/6/13

There aren’t enough words to describe how much fun planning this wedding with Samantha & Desmond was. They had been on a long road together and when they finally found themselves heading towards the altar – while living out of state – they brought Bride Support on board to help them piece it all together – vendors, decor, logistics…all of it.

Samantha & Desmond hosted their guests at a total “wow” factor venue – the University of Minnesota football stadium, TCF Bank Stadium. Guests arrived to the indoor club room for the ceremony – a ceremony that brought almost everyone to tears. After jumping the broom – the couple and their bridal party headed down to the field for pictures while guests watched from the indoor stadium seats and were entertained by Goldy, the Gopher’s mascot. The reception moved guests to the DQ Club room within the stadium and showcased the beautiful space with some modern decor elements. After a fun “starting line-up” grand entrance, dinner, toasts and sweet spotlight dances, DJ Adrian got the party started; Guests enjoyed the cigar bar, photo booth, candy buffet and all of their party-loving friends and family.

What a completely fun day for an adorable couple. I’m so thrilled to have been a part of it – and can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two. Congrats!

I cannot even begin to find the words to properly express how amazing Meredith was to work with. I was a full-service customer and I do not know how I could have done it without Meredith! HIRE HER! She guided my now-husband and I throughout the entire process of planning our wedding and our day was even more PERFECT than I could have imagined. We even had family and friends tell us how amazing our planner was! They knew that our wedding went off without a hitch thanks to Meredith and they were right. 
Not only did Meredith make our dreams come true, she is now someone I consider a lifelong friend. I had no clue how stressful it would be planning a wedding and I could not have gotten through this process without her. Please know that by hiring Meredith, you are getting much more than a planner…you are getting a friend who truly cares about your special day. I experienced this first hand and I adore Meredith for all that she has done for me. Hiring Meredith was the best decision ever!!!!!
