Lauren & David’s Meadow Brook Wedding
Lauren & David’s Meadow Brook wedding was just exquisite! The ceremony took place in one of their lovely outdoor gardens. Cocktail hour followed inside and on the patio of the beautiful, historic mansion. They decided to do a first look prior to the ceremony. I love when couples do this to allow for a more relaxed photo session as well as much more time to get in all the shots!
The reception took place inside the tent that sits adjacent to the Hall. We spent most of the planning time on details and decor. I made sure every detail was accounted for and that everything looked exactly as Lauren & David had envisioned! The lounge was a way to utilize more of the space. Since we had a fixed tent size and a small guest list we needed to come up with creative ways of filling out the “room”!
They truly had the perfect wedding day! Everything went according to plan, and as you can see in their grand exit photo, they couldn’t have been more excited! We love planning weddings at Meadow Brook Hall. It is a beautiful property and there are so many spaces to be utilized to keep guests’ interest all night long!

In Her Words:
Ana of Twofoot Creative helped us plan, design, and carry out the most PERFECT wedding! She was a huge factor in how well the rehearsal, outdoor garden wedding and tent reception at Meadowbrook Hall went for my August wedding. She is ridiculously organized, experienced, supportive, understanding, efficient, ready with options and alternatives, has many good vendor contacts, and is well prepared and ready for emergencies.
I live across the country and was only able to make several trips back to Michigan before the wedding so Ana and I worked together mainly over phone and email. She was a delight to work with and I will miss all of our phone calls and emails! She understood my desire to plan and design a fun and beautiful atmosphere for our wedding and she was a wonderful, calming presence through the last few stressful weeks.
My husband and I had a BLAST
Ana helped ensure that all of our plans were carried out seamlessly. Everything turned out even more perfect than we could have imagined and I credit much of that to Ana. I was able to completely relax on the day of my wedding, knowing that Ana was handling everything. It was wonderful to be able to live in the moment and enjoy my ceremony and reception, while chatting with guests and dancing on the dancefloor, without worrying about anything! She understood how detail-oriented I was, especially about the decorations and the tent layout. She made sure everything was set up exactly as I had planned. After my bustle ripped during my father-daughter dance, Ana followed me around with a bag of safety pins. She fixed my dress so that I could dance the rest of the night.
I had so much fun at my wedding that I would repeat it all again in a heartbeat and there is no doubt that Ana would be a part of it.
