Meghan & Paul – 6/29/2014

Meghan & Paul were such a fun couple to work with and their wedding was definitely one of the most memorable ones of the year! A mere NINE days before their wedding was to take place, we got word that their venue had been flooded from all the rainfall we had received and we could no longer host the wedding there. Thankfully, Meghan & Paul put their faith and trust in us and we found them a new venue and re-routed all of the plans to make it work at the new setting. The wedding was so beautiful, everything fell together well with the help of many flexible vendors and everyone was as happy as ever. It was so satisfying to hear Meghan & Paul say how much they loved the last-minute venue and how pleased they were with the day…whew! :)

The ceremony took place out on the lawn in front of an old school house on the historical grounds of Gibbs Farm – it was warm and sunny, just as it needed to be. The couple “planted” a tree as their unity ceremony – I always love seeing the unique unity rituals couples do as a part of their ceremony. Reverend Derek did a beautiful ceremony, as always – and then they were finally hitched! Guests enjoyed milling about the tent and barn for the cocktail hour and reception – while listening to fabulous acoustic guitar tunes and enjoying the tasty food and cheesecake – yum! Sara’s Photo Booth kept people entertained, as well, and it was a lovely, intimate, relaxed Sunday wedding. Congrats, Meghan & Kyle!

Jessica & Michael – 3/15/14

Jessica & Michael had such a lovely and fun wedding in St Paul this spring. With a romantic ceremony in the court room at the Landmark Center – and beautiful floral decor by the bride’s grandmother – they were finally man & wife and moved the party over a couple blocks to the Science Museum for the rest of the night. It just so happened that the featured exhibit at the museum at the time of their wedding was dinosaurs – which they were more than OK with! They took full advantage of pictures with the dinos and even used dinosaurs for their cake topper and kids’ gifts at their place settings. With a delicious dinner by Lancer Catering, a fun mad-lib card for guests to fill out, a fun photobooth and a great dance – this crew had no problem partying all night! Congrats, Jessica & Michael!

Alison & Dustin – 2/22/14

Ali & Dustin came to Bride Support for full-service help with their Minnesota winter wedding. They were a blast to work with and the wedding was beautiful!

Guests joined together at the couple’s church in Shakopee to witness them becoming one unit through the vows they promised to each other. With the beautiful guitar stylings of Timothy Howe and a upbeat recessional dance – the ceremony was sweet, meaningful and fun. The couple then greeted their guests at the reception venue – Turtle’s Social Centre – for the party! The couple had named each table after a part of Italy (where they were soon to honeymoon) – along with fun facts and some beautiful centerpieces. The guestbook was a unique one – some cartoon drawings made by a friend that guests then colored in and wrote notes on. There was a photo memory table of loved ones and a gorgeous cake, as well! Guests were wined and dined and then partied all night!

What a great group of family & friends this was – who traveled from near and far on one of the worst winter-driving weekends I can remember in a long time to be there with Ali & Dustin.

Congrats, you two!

Meredith of Bride Support was hands down the best investment I made while planning my wedding. I could not have done it without her.

I went with the (full-service) package which may seem like unnecessary expense to some but you get your investment back in regards to keeping your sanity as you can have he tpeace in mind that Meredith has it handled.

I was never more thankful for Meredith than the week leading up to my wedding as I came down with a horrible cold -as in laying in bed all day completely out of it. Because I trusted that Meredith had it all handled, I was able to focus more on making sure I got well instead of freaking out that I still needed to do X,Y,Z.

The morning of the wedding was also stress free for me as I knew that Meredith was working on getting the ceremony location and reception ready. It is a wonderful feeling that you have someone who is completely on the same page with you regarding decoration so you don’t have to worry about having to explain to your vision to whoever is setting up that day and hoping they get it right.

Meredith puts together a very detailed hand-out to everyone in the bridal party so that everyone is on the same page and allows the day to run as smoothly as possible (barring stuff that always comes up).

Based on how smoothly the day seemed to run to guests along with the amazing décor that Meredith helped me come up with we are still getting compliments on how wonderful our wedding was from our guests.

In summary, as my review title says, save your sanity and hire Meredith – be it her premium package or her day-of package. I promise you will not regret it!”

Sara & Robb – 2/1/14

Sara & Robb were such a sweet couple to work with! They hosted a glamorous wedding day at Aria that was beautiful in every facet. Guests arrived and signed quilt squares as a guestbook and then got seated for the ceremony. After a sweet and personal ceremony – the couple was announced man & wife and during the kiss came a balloon drop – what fun! Guests enjoyed the beauty of Aria during cocktail hour in the foyer and then were welcomed back into the main hall for dinner & dancing. Guests were treated to a yummy dessert buffet after dinner and took home cute little hot chocolate favors put together by the bride. What a fun day – congrats you two!

Sara & Robb wrote the following review…

“I used Bride Support for the day-of-coordinator services and it was the best money I spent for the entire event. Meredith made sure everything ran smoothly and was ready to go. I didn’t have to worry or stress about a single thing the whole day. It was wonderful!! I highly recommend using her services.”

Erin & Scott – 1/4/14

Erin & Scott were such a lovely couple to work with – and what a lovely day they put together, indeed! With a vintage feel at the stunning Aria, it was sure to be a hit. :)

Guests watched these two lovebirds marry against the beautiful background that Aria offers – while the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress…gorgeous! While guests mingled in the foyer, the room was flipped into the reception hall – and then the real fun began. Guests were treated to food stations of yummy Crave food for dinner (including a mac ‘n cheese bar!), with a champagne toast for speeches to top it off. Soon enough – the dessert bar opened…with cakes and cheesecakes from St Paul’s Cafe Latte – where the couple had their first date…YUM! These two exuded love all day long – and their friends & family were a great group to have around them. Congrats Erin & Scott!

Alyson & Eric – 10/26/13

Alyson & Eric came to Bride Support for help planning a Minneapolis wedding  with just 6 months to go before when they realized – they needed serious help! They had a venue and a photographer…but as for the rest – they were lost. No problem! Bride Support stepped right in and helped them line up the rest of their fabulous vendors, come to terms on a style/look and gave ideas on how to pull it all together through the details. The result? A fantastic, beautiful and fun day!

Alyson & Eric hosted their guests at Bunker Hills Golf Course and boy, was it a beautiful setting for a fall wedding in Minnesota. The ceremony was emotional and sweet – with beautiful singing/playing by Angela Bobick and a personalized ceremony by Rev. Toni. I’ll never forget that aisle – lined with stunning autumnal pumpkins with a lovely mix and cat-tails peering out. Soon, the reception began with a yummy meal, tasty cake, fun photobooth and hopping dance…and don’t forget the donuts-to-go favor! :) What a fun day this was – and a sweet couple to work with on it. Congrats, you two!

Alyson & Eric wrote the following review…

“I am so happy that I chose to go with Meredith Meyer and Bride Support for my wedding planning services. I would have been absolutely lost without Meredith! She was always so helpful and able to take care of my questions/concerns in a very timely manner. She was able to make our wedding happen just as we envisioned it and the entire day turned out flawless. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!”

Sara & Ryan – 10/19/13

What a wedding this was! Sara & Ryan pulled out all the stops to make sure they threw a fabulous day – and boy, did they! Bride Support was along for the ride under the premium coordination package – and wow, was it a fun one to help plan!

Sara & Ryan started their day at church where their friends & family witnessed them becoming one through marriage. With a beautiful setting and sweet ceremony – they finally tied the knot and made it official. Guests moved to Harriet Island Pavilion where cocktail hour music was provided by Orange Mighty Trio and the celebration began. With tasty food by Lettuce Cater, fabulous decor by Colleen’s Flower Cellar, The Covered Chair, Avant Decor and Festivities and a rockin’ good time by the Brian Kinney Band – this reception was hard to beat. Oh – but don’t forget the late night snack…tots by a local food truck, Tot Boss! YUM! This crew partied until the last minute and were more than happy to help the new couple celebrate! Thanks for letting us be a part of your big day, Sara & Ryan!

Sara & Ryan wrote the following review…
The first major wedding decision we made was to hire Meredith (Premium Coordination Package) and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made! We met with other potential wedding coordinators, but when we met with Meredith, we knew she was the coordinator for us. She was personable, friendly, and eager to learn what we wanted for our wedding day. We felt that she valued our opinions and our vision and could help us bring it to life. She very much exceeded our expectations! Meredith helped us with a countless number of tasks that felt overwhelming to us. She provided us with lists of vendors that were a good fit, attended many meetings and asked all of the right questions, and researched hundreds of random questions we asked. She was very responsive, always returning phone calls and emails promptly and was willing to meet whenever we needed to touch base. She very much reduced the amount of stress that wedding planning can bring and we were able to enjoy our wedding day fully. It was the most fun we have ever had! The day went seamlessly due to the great planning and attention to detail. Thank you Meredith for making our vision become a reality! We had so much fun along the way!”
