When Lisa and Sam had first contacted Simply Brilliant Events, they had booked their venue at the beautiful Wellers Carriage House in Saline, Michigan. Both Lisa and Sam are busy professionals in New York City, they knew they needed a luxury full service wedding planner for their destination wedding in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Design wise we wanted to use and enhance all the great features of Wellers Carriage House, the darker wood, architectural details. We carefully selected classic white table linens with navy napkins, menu cards placed on top. The long tables at Wellers Carriage House are very narrow, Kate from New Creations Flower Company loosely placed greenery with pretty white flowers and votives. On the larger round tables, Kate created high arrangements and many candles. Such a pretty look, that works so well with Wellers Carriage House.
For many of Lisa and Sam’s guests this was their first time visiting Ann Arbor. Lisa and Sam had planned a great weekend for all their guests to enjoy the amazing destination wedding and Ann Arbor.
Most guests stayed at The Graduate Hotel, downtown Ann Arbor where they could enjoy everything Ann Arbor has to offer. The rehearsal dinner for the immediate family was held at Vinology in the private dining area, The Bubble Room.
The Wedding Day!
Lisa and her bride maids all arrived at the pretty rented apartment downtown Ann Arbor. With the talented ladies from Imagine 3 Beauty Studio for make-up and Simona Vigh for hair.
Sam and his groomsman, were all getting ready at The Graduate downtown Ann Arbor.
Lisa and Sam had decided to do their First Look, in and around the campus of University of Michigan, remembering some of their favorite spots from their student days. Both attended Law School at the University of Michigan and wanted to incorporate the campus into their customized wedding.
As the ceremony finished, guest were greeted with passed champagne and appetizers. With live music playing in the background from the bluewaterkings band. Perfection!
The celebrations continued with grand entrances, toasts, cake cutting. The best part, Lisa and Sam’s first dance. Lisa and Sam had been practicing for months, but they performed perfectly!!!
Bluewater Kings Band continued throughout the night, an amazing night and celebration of Lisa and Sam!
