Madison and Andrew’s Real Wedding at Fox Hills: August, 26 2023
“1000000/10 would recommend Mike Staff Productions to anyone getting married in metro Detroit. Using all three of their services made planning so much easier and all three of them exceeded my expectations.” – Happy bride, Madison
Our Love StoryDrew and I met on the infamous Hinge. It really does work LOL! He proposed up in Traverse City, MI at the winery Chateau Grand Traverse. Both of our immediate families were there, it was absolutely perfect!
Our Wedding VisionSimple, elegant, light! I knew I wanted all white flowers and simple table decorations and light satin bridesmaid dresses. Everything we chose correlated so well.
Our Favorite Wedding MemoriesOur private last dance. After the night was over, our wedding coordinator had all of our guests line up outside for our grand exit. While all that was happening, Drew and I had a private last dance to the song Anyone by Justin Bieber. Our photographer and videographer had left by that point of the night so our WONDERFUL DJ Brad took tons of videos and photos on our phones. It was so special to be able to dance just the two of us and soak up the last moment of our wedding night.
Wedding Photography ExperienceOur wedding photographer was superb! Once we saw Jennifer’s work we immediately knew we wanted her. She was so easy to work with. I loved how particular she was about our photos. She wasn’t afraid to pose us in a very specific way and because of that our photos turned out incredible.
Wedding Videography ExperienceI love EVERYTHING about our wedding video. I knew from day one of being a fiance that I wanted a professional wedding videographer and it was 1000% worth it. Our videographer was perfect and our montage is the perfect snapshot of our day.
Wedding DJ ExperienceI truly cannot say enough good things about our wedding DJ, Brad. We had a call a few days before the wedding and I told him my vision. He absolutely nailed it and then some. He truly went above and beyond to make our day so fun. His energy is contagious and it shows because he packs the dance floor. We danced to Better Together by Luke Combs for our first dance. Our first concert we attended together was Luke and very early on in our relationship we always said we would do our first dance to one of his songs if we got married.
Our Wedding Planning Advice
- Don’t sweat the small stuff and trust in your vendors that everything will be perfect. I had so much trust in all of our vendors that I was able to spend the morning before the wedding stress free because I knew everything would be perfect
- Spend as much time as you can with your spouse. It can be so easy to get separated during your reception, so do your best to stick together.
