Let’s face it: surprise parties (no matter how young or old) are a riot. There’s always that moment of anticipation that gets everyone on the edge of the chairs. And this party was no different.

We’ve known Mike for a few years now and it was a pleasure to be part of his big day. His surprise party was held at Pasquale’s in Royal Oak. We were set up before guests arrived at 6 and the birthday boy arrived around 7:15.

We heard it through the grapevine from some of Mike’s closest friends and family that he seemed to be hinting that he knew about this party. It certainly didn’t seem like it because he absolutely looked surprised! The look on his face was priceless!

As far as the venue goes, Pasquale’s is conveniently located off of Woodward. The waitstaff was amazing and the food was awesome! You couldn’t ask for a better place to have a small party. Pasquale’s was definitely accommodating to the needs of Mike and his guests and we would recommend this venue to anyone.

Happy birthday, Mike! Thanks for letting us be part of your special day!

What a great way to officially start fall!

Jenna & AJ found us by way of WeddingWire only 6 weeks before their big day. And we’re so glad that everything came together so quickly for them.

The event took place at the Fenton Community Center in Fenton, MI. Their colors were subtle and classy with oranges, creams, and black. And even though Brett has a deathly fear of balloons, their centerpieces were absolutely beautiful!

The new bride and groom danced to a live performance of Alison Krauss’s "When You Say Nothing At All" performed by AJ’s sister-in-law Allyson and Jenna’s brother Neil. It was a wonderful and original idea that made their first dance even more special. The bride danced with her father to "Sugar Mountain" by Neil Young. The groom and his mom danced to Adele’s cut of "Make You Feel My Love."

The crowd danced all night long to a good mix of Top 40 and Classic Rock.

Congratulations Jenna & AJ!
