Just a bit about today's wedding couple before we get to their ultra-chic black-tie celebration ...
Andrea and Greg were originally scheduled to marry in April. However, shortly before that, they were in a serious car accident and the wedding had to be postponed. The following August, Andrea approached Tifany at Gourmet Invitations with a request for invitations and all of the other wedding-related paper pieces ... from soup to nuts! She wanted the design to set the tone for the celebration that they were planning. They had decided to have a much smaller wedding, followed by a cocktail party and reception at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan. The point of this story is that Tifany would have one week to complete a process that typically takes 9 months! But she did it ... with incredible results.
Pulling together a sophisticated, black-tie event in such a short time takes the talents of an experienced, creative team of experts. Enter Laura Davis Events. Laura Davis Events is based in metropolitan Detroit. Their weddings are some of the most highly recognized Michigan events, due primarily to their reputation for exceptional service, chic style and innovative designs. So ... with the combined efforts of Tifany, Laura, and Marianne Thai (event manager) --- Andrea & Greg were married!
Invitation suite design was based upon the pattern in Andrea's dress and is blind debossed. Striking decor design was based upon a sleek black and white color palette. A note was inserted requesting 'black attire only'.
The menus at the reception were personalized with each guest’s name and was also served as an event timeline. A monogram was added to the reception items and was even used in the custom lighting.
Congratulations Andrea and Greg!
