Meet Valerie & Peter ❤
This couple stole our hearts from day one. Working with them was a true pleasure! We first met the couple well before their wedding day, leaving us lots of time to get everything perfect, down to every last detail. Finding the best vendors and adequately planning everything was KEY to Val and Pete's dream day. They had such a beautiful vision.
It's no surprise that Covid has shook the world this year, and being in an industry where we work with couples during one of the happiest moments in their lives, our hearts broke a little extra for any of our couples who's wedding was affected by the pandemic. Val and Pete had the perfect venue picked out on a stunning golf course (they both share a serious love for golf, so the venue was perfect). They had planned to have a big wedding, at the venue they loved, with all of their friends and family in attendance. Unfortunately, the pandemic forced them to completely change everything. From downsizing the guest list, to having to change venues, the vision of their wedding day didn't quite look like they had wished.
Fortunately for them, Peters parents own an A M A Z I N G home with a beautiful long deck that walked right out to the most breathtaking view of Lake Michigan where they held the reception. It was not their first choice, and I know the venue change posed many challenges, But they did it. And it was perfect. The ceremony venue did not change, and thankfully so, the Catholic church where they said their vows was breathtaking.
For the reception we had a large tent set up in the backyard, a seating area off to the side of the house that was furnished with all white couches and chairs, string lights that strung through the entire yard, and a cute little bar area in between with the cocktail tables strewed throughout.
The tent was filled with simple yet elegant greenery and stunning white floral that was weaved through all of the lit candles, and hung where the drapery met into a bow.

Although this was not their first choice in the way they envisioned their day, we are so glad that they were able to still have the wedding they both deserve.
We will miss working with the two of them and wish them so much happiness and a lifetime of love.
Thank you for trusting us with your big day.
