Cassy & Andy's wedding

Cassy & Andy were not like our average clients. Usually we meet our clients a few months before their wedding to discuss the details and help them along with their planning. Not Cassy & Andy. Cassy contacted us after her friend referred us to her......3 weeks before her wedding. Since Cassy felt that she still had too much to do and not enough time, she contacted us. We stepped up to the plate & assisted Cassy with all of her last minute wedding items. She even booked us as her day-of wedding coordinator. We must say, the day went smoothly & everything looked amazing!

Ceremony: Holy Trinity in Assumption
Reception: Gladieux Meadows
DJ: Leo at Sounds of Music
Cake: Syd's Bakery
Florist: Anything Grows
Photographer: Dream Keepers
Chair Sashes: Meredith Party Rentals
Wedding Coordinator & Decorator: Your Perfect Day

Thank you to Cassy & Andy for letting us be a part of your day!

Outdoor Ceremony Style | Toledo Wedding Planner | Perrysburg Wedding Planner

It's easy to create a focal point in an outdoor setting, as long as you keep the feel of your location in mind and work with, not against, your surroundings. Here are some of our favorite setups.

In Any Space

Consider using existing structures to create a focal point, and position yourselves in the center for a picture-perfect vow exchange. An aisle runner would appear out-of-place in such a lush setting; instead, this couple let the symmetry of the stone building, and classic white chairs, define the space. A simple garland is all the decoration needed to spruce up the face of the cottage and complete the look.

In a Dramatic Setting

For a ceremony set against an over-the-top backdrop, keep your décor simple. Trying to outdo your surroundings will only distract the eye. Here, floral arrangements are kept to a minimum—two large silver urns, filled with a modern arrangement of hydrangea, roses, and banana and tropical ti leaves.

In Your Backyard

Curtains hung on the back porch lend a touch of drama and enhance the ceremony space. The daffodils lining the aisle add to the homey feel, and coordinate with the yellow rose petal strewn aisle.

On the Beach

A simple white canopy, upheld by weathered lengths of wood, complements the beach setting. The couple's chairs—covered in crimson fabric—draw guests' eyes to the ceremony, not the expansive shoreline and horizon.

In a Garden

Choose floral arrangements that complement the surrounding landscape. Garlands of pink and white peonies lend a natural feel to the gazebo, and the clusters of white hydrangea lining the aisle echo the softness of the nearby greenery.

By a Lake

While standing under a large tree might seem like the obvious choice, this couple has allowed two neighboring trees to define the ceremony space and create a natural frame. With little décor to compete with the view, guests can fully appreciate the beauty of the setting.

Hayley & Blake's wedding | Toledo Wedding Planner | Perrysburg Wedding Planner

Having many weddings this year, we have met a lot of amazing couples. Hayley & Blake are one of those amazing couples. Hayley is such a fun, outgoing woman and Blake is a man that would do anything for his woman. We still remember the first time we met Hayley. She came to our studio and she sat down and said "This is what I want but I don't want to pay a lot of money for it!" When we told her our prices, she said "That is it?" (yeah, we hear that alot) Hayley used a lot of our decoration pieces and it made her reception hall look amazing.

We were honored to work some great vendors too!

Reception: Stranahan Great Hall
Cake: Creative Confection
Flowers: Enchanting Flowers
Chair covers & centerpieces: Your Perfect Day
Photographer: Erin Kilburn
