Michelle & Jon – 8/30/2014

This “I Do BBQ” was one for the book! With a savvy thrifter with tons of style and a helpful DIY crew – Michelle had the perfect look and plans for her casual wedding. We helped her pull together the details and execute on the day of – and what a pleasure it was to be a part of this special day. Guests arrived to a local park where the ceremony took place under the shelter. The altar was decorated with a hand-made wooden sign, a beautiful area rug and floral to tie it together. After the personal “I dos” – filled with friends playing music and even officiating – guests grabbed a drink from the beverage cart and played lawn games while more friends showed up to the celebration. The Fork-in-the-Road food truck served a yummy meal, and cupcakes came out for dessert. But don’t forget about the children face-painting, s’mores and campfire – all helping this chic and casual BBQ wedding just perfect. Congrats, Michelle & Jon!

Kate & Bill – 8/9/2014

A casual yet lovely day for Kate & Bill was just perfect and “them” for their wedding day. The Weisman is such a unique and beautiful setting – paired with the gorgeous flowers from A Day in Provence and tasty treats from Common Roots – this wedding was a looker.

The ceremony within the gallery was an easy-going, romantic one with a stunning bride and handsome groom dedicating their lives to one another. Guests mingled during cocktail hour – looking at the artwork, brushing up on their Minnesota trivia and checking out the travel-themed elements that the couple incorporated. The rest of the night was a fun celebration of a beautiful couple – congrats, you two! 🙂

What a gorgeous wedding this one was! Aria never disappoints – and Danielle had put together the perfect combo of peachy-pinks and decor elements that made the day feel bright, summery and chic. My favorite element of the day was the mini succulent pots as escort cards – so sweet! Providing day of coordination for this MN wedding was all of our pleasure. Congratulations, Danielle & Eric!

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!

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!
