Jodi & Daniele Gaglio - September 24th 2012, Palazzo Grande - Shelby Township

Jodi & Daniele had a beautiful wedding. Two of the nicest people we've ever worked with! As you can see, it was a traditional large Italian event with over 600 guests. As soon as we were done setting this one up, we had a 250 guest event at the Dearborn Inn that night as well... It was a long day! Both events were flawless... We helped Jodi meticulously put together a GORGEOUS Peacock themed event. We did a beautiful palette of jewel toned Dendrobium & Cymbidium Orchids, roses, stock, hydrangea and many other blooms... The floral popped off of our teal tablecloths and were perfectly accented with our gold chiavari chairs & gold lacquer chargers! It was a breath-taking event!

Samantha & Bobby Dimovski - August 21, 2011, Ciccone Vineyards - Traverse City

I have to say...we just started our 9th bridal season and never have any of my clients captured my heart like these two. They are two of the classiest, humble and gracious people I have worked with let alone met. Bobby and Samantha had a lot of heart ache from significant deaths in their immediate family and a lot of frustration during the planning of their event due to cultural circumstances I won't discuss for their privacy that resulted in them canceling their event. After a couple days of really thinking about things, they decided to move forward with their event, but to make it a whole other kind. They decided to hit the road with their event! I was lucky and blessed enough that they wanted to take me with them!

They decided on the Ciccone Vineyards up in Traverse City Michigan. Two words...breath taking. I helped them design a floor plan that worked great. We had a tent erected. Samantha and her bridal party put adorable paper lanterns up in the ceiling. We ultimately decided on two long captain's tables for 50 people each. Samantha had her heart set on a vintage feel with a touch of tradition and organic undertones... We used rolls of pre-matted moss as runners down the centers of the tables for the organic lush look. We used a traditional ivory pintuck floor length linen and natural apple wood captain chairs. We accented with gold lacquer chargers, glass stemmed candle holders, warm ivory pillar candles and small clusters of roses in various vessels along the runner. The centerpieces were our vintage glass trumpet vases with a garden themed topiary arrangement of hydrangeas, vintage colored roses, stock, Green Amaranthus and Seeded Eucalyptus... I had their initials made by a great crafter on Etsy to be used as the focal point of the ceremony site under this majestic Oak Tree. This will always be one of most endering events. Thank you Samantha and Bobby for allowing me to be a part of your event!
