Vow Renewals are Special

We previously mentioned Burma and Carlos and their amazing vow renewal this past summer.  We received some additional beautiful pictures from Blaine Siesser, their talented wedding photographer.  It was quite the celebration of a wonderful couple.  Enjoy!

Specialty Lighting added that Special Touch

Katy and Jon held their wedding reception in a gorgeous Grand Ballroom.  The table decor, specialty lighting and cuisine were amazing.  The nine crystal chandeliers were programmed to change colors subtly throughout the evening.  It was wonderful night for the Bride and Groom, their families and friends.  Photos are courtesy of Blaine Siesser Photography.

Your Wedding pictures can actually move!!

Although this is not a new photography trick, it is new to me.  I found this example on a blog put out by Jeffrey Lewis Bennett, a local Michigan photographer.  I think it would be so fun to have a picture like this one:

You can also have a rice throwing picture that moves a bit more like the one below done by Blaine Siesser of Blaine Siesser Photography:

You will need to ask your photographer if he knows how to do this .GIF style picture, and you wouldn't want them all to move like or this you could get dizzy!  One or two are certainly a novelty that you can share with friends and family online.

Tented Wedding Theme: Around The World

We assisted Michael and Andrea in the planning and coordination of their Tented Outdoor Wedding this past August 2012 in South Lyon, Michigan.  The theme was "Around The World", and it was reflected in their wedding invitations that were Passports for the Guests to arrive.

The card box was an old-fashioned, worn suitcase left open on the Gift Table to hold the cards, and the Seating Chart was designed by the Groom to look like a map of the world with everyone's names assigned to a different country at each table.  The Cuisine was Food Stations from the four corners of the world, located in the four corners of the tent.  There was food from Poland, Italy, America and China.  The Guests traveled from food station to food station filling up on delicacies from each country.

For entertainment there was a Steel Drum Band, Flair Bartenders juggling the bottles while serving at the bar (not to mention blowing flames from their mouths!), fireworks and the most magical display of over 100 Chinese lanterns that floated up into the night sky looking like stars the further away they went.  The Guests had the time of their lives with so many "fun" and entertaining things to do and watch.  The DJ was great and got everyone up and dancing into the "wee hours of the evening"....  The Pictures are courtesy of Blaine Siesser Photography.

Beautiful Vow Renewal

Burma and Carlos renewed their wedding vows with an absolutely amazing celebration.  We assisted them with the entire planning process as well as full service coordination on the wedding day.  The historic feel of the ballroom set the mood for their guests along with some cultural entertainment from Jose Bueno's Mariachi Band.  They traveled from table to table during the dinner hour providing music from the six piece group throughout the formal dinner service.  For the first time in the history of wedding receptions in the Ballroom, Burma's garter got caught in the crystal chandelier when Carlos tossed it for the guys. Sorry guys!! All in all, everyone had a great time.  The pictures below are courtesy of Blaine Siesser Photography.

Movie Scene Duplicaton for your Wedding

Michael and Renee came to Dream Wedding and Event Planners wanting an outdoor forest feeling for their wedding ceremony inside during the cold and snowy month of March in Michigan.  Michael wanted it to look like the wedding scene in the movie, "Twilight".  We duplicated the general feeling, and they were thrilled.  It was everything they had dreamed of and hoped for.  Photos courtesy of Jess and Nate.
