In 2009, April clients Deanna & Ryan had their mothers join two bunches of flowers together to signify the unity of both families. I thought this was a fabulous idea and when I was asked to contribute a unique ceremony idea to Brides Michigan it was perfect, however it did not include all of their guests, so it was back to the drawing board.
I was chatting about the idea with Melissa of Telltale Photography and she shared with me that her clients, Seth and Amelea, did the same thing that Deanna & Ryan had, except with all of their guests! I thought it was a brilliant idea and sent it to Brides Michigan, with Melissa's permission. They ended up choosing to use it in their article, above, however I wanted to share the photos of the wedding Melissa shared with me. If you're looking for a way to include all of your guests in the ceremony, I absolutely love this idea!
And a big shout out to fellow Michigan wedding planners Amanda Freeman and Lindsey Nartker for contributing to the article as well. Both of these ladies are respected wedding planners in the Detroit area and I'm happy to be able to call them colleagues & friends.
