Tanya & Soren – 8/20/11

Tanya and Soren had an extemely fun and special wedding in their own backyard! What a treat to get to live in a place where every day you can wake up and remember such a momentous time in your life together happening right where you stand – I love it!

They worked hard on a lot of great DIY projects to turn their backyard into the perfect Hawaiian-themed wedding venue. They built a structure for the ceremony, rented a bar, buffet and food area and brought on the party! There were more kids at this wedding than I’d every seen – but they loved every second of it! Guests had a blast celebrating with these lovebirds – all guests were handed leis upon arrival, tropical patterns were everywhere and the beautiful Hawaiian florals were just perfect. What a great, fun wedding for a wonderful couple!

“Meredith was amazing as our Day-of-Coordinator! It was such a relief to have her professional help in the final weeks of planning. She helped us realize our dream day through coordinating the timeline, communicating with vendors, and directing the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. We felt completely at ease putting our vision for our wedding in her capable hands and we recommend her services highly. Thank you Meredith– we couldn’t have done it without you!”

Beth & Sean – 08/13/11

Beth and Sean were such a dream couple! Working with them was such a breeze because Beth seriously had it all together. She was so on top of things, always communicating everything to me and had thought of it all! Because of that – she wanted someone there on the day of the wedding to be in their corner and make sure that the day went off without a hitch. Their hard word paid off – because it was an amazing day! Such a cute couple to get to celebrate. A favorite moment from their day was having a friend play “That’s Amore” on the accordian during the cake cutting – so cute! Guests had a blast in the photobooth and dancing to a fun DJ all night. The room was decorated beautifully with the ceiling draping, head table decor, flowers, chair covers and linens and guests got a special treat when a “s’mores station” was set up on the patio after dinner!

Abby & Arthur – 7/2/11

Abby & Arthur were a true joy to work with on their wedding from the beginning. After meeting them for the first time at our consult – I could immediately see how drawn to each other they both were and how excited they were as a couple for a special day to celebrate their love. Abby and Arthur put a lot of hard work into their day by completing lots of DIY projects to add to the uniqueness of their big day. It was so fun to see them all come together during set-up on their wedding day. Guests raved about the room’s decor all night and how sweet the ceremony was – especially since the couple’s dog was included as the ring bearer…tux and all! 🙂 Abby & Arthur also had a fun treat for their guests when their photographer set up an “un-photobooth” outside the room for guests to get their picture taken with fun props…always a hit!

“Meredith from Bride Support is fantastic. We had heard from other couples that a day-of coordinator was a must, but now that I look back on it, I simply could not imagine my wedding day and the weeks preceding it without Meredith’s help. Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming process, and my fiance and I had most things lined up, but we definitely felt the crunch toward the end. Meredith really helped relieve our stress. From communicating with and organizing our vendors to doing a walk through of the ceremony and reception site, she was really with us every step of the way. We did a lot of DIY things, so it was also super helpful to have Meredith take those items off of our hands a few days before the wedding–one less thing to worry about transporting to the venue. She helped us create and finalize our day of schedule and remembered all of the tiny things that had slipped my mind in the process. I tend to be a control freak, but the day of my wedding I felt totally confident leaving things in Meredith’s hands…she really put all of those little final touches on things that made the venue look amazing. Meredith helped keep things on schedule throughout the ceremony and reception and made sure that the day was just as we wanted. Even my parents were blown away by all of Meredith’s amazing work. After going through the whole thing, I see how important it is to have that extra help, and as I said early, I could not imagine doing a wedding without Meredith. My wedding day was so stress-free, and I know that would not have been possible without Bride Support.”
