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!”

Sarah & Mike – 9/14/13

There are a lot of fun elements from this wedding that stand out from me…it was an adorable day! Sarah & Mike hosted their ceremony and reception at the Day Block Building – such a great city venue. 🙂 Guests grabbed a drink before finding a seat for the ceremony and the Groom’s father officiated – making things extra personable.  The bride was so relaxed all day – it made it easy for everyone to have a good time. After the big kiss, the couple’s string instrument-playing-friends played “Bad Romance” as they exited the ceremony site…so fun! Cocktail hour took place while the room flipped into reception – some simple mason jar centerpieces and lights strung on the ceiling was all they needed….oh – and tables named after Star Wars references. Dinner was Pizza Luce…who doesn’t love that? And dessert was donuts from a favorite bakery…including a special one for the Bride & Groom with Star Wars action figures as a “topper.” The photographer opened up a popular “un-photo booth” after dinner and the group enjoyed micro-brews and dancing all night. Congrats, Sarah & Mike!

Kim & Tom – 8/3/2013

Kim & Tom had a positively lovely and classy wedding day in Minneapolis with their closest family and friends. After planning their big day while he lived in VA and she lived in Iraq – they were thrilled to finally be together and making it official! The Graves 601 hotel was the perfect setting for such a modern couple. The ceremony took place in the ballroom; With siblings as the  attendants – and a family friend officiating, it was a sweet and meaningful ceremony. Not to mention the beautiful guitar and vocal stylings of Angela Bobick! After a cocktail hour in the foyer and a room flip in the ballroom – guests were invited into the reception for the couple’s first dance, delicious meal and some heartfelt toasts. I loved how Kim & Tom carried the motif from their invitations through to their escort cards and cake. Oh – and the cake!…which included a hand-sculpted version of their dog…so cute! Gateaux also provided a beautiful dessert buffet with takeout boxes for guests to take treats home in. The wedding was an intimate affair – you certainly couldn’t deny the love from everyone in the room and especially in-between the couple. What a special day for these two – congrats, Kim & Tom!

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!!”
