If you've read this blog any, you may remember me talking about my friends Taryn & Kevin (click the link if you want to catch up on the story real quick.) They helped start my September weddings last year. Taryn's friend Jenn happened to be the matron of honor in the wedding. We weren't even halfway through with Taryn and Kevin's event when Jenn said, "YOU HAVE TO PLAY FOR US!" This huge grin hit me and soon, we were talking details of their upcoming event...which was today.
Jenn and Mike never got a party. They decided to get married and got busy with life. So, they had a party and I got to come along for the fun.
The party was at 1 Under Craft Beer & Eats in Livonia, MI. Good thing, too. 10 minute ride from the house? Yes, please. If you're from around here you've probably been to 1 Under's bar downstairs. Well, they have an absolutely gorgeous event space upstairs, too. It's been renovated recently and it's stunning. The staff is great, the food is awesome, and the service is wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone looking to throw a party in this area.
I got to sit down with Jenn & Mike a couple times to talk about plans for this party. It wasn't until the second time that I learned of a special daddy/daughter dance mix we would be doing.
I enjoyed this event because it wasn't a typical wedding. Don't misunderstand: I LOVE WEDDINGS. But sometimes it's a nice change of pace to get an event that doesn't involve a lot of details and stress. This was cool breeze compared to some events I've done in the past.
After a short and sweet renewal ceremony, the party was on. And it was a great party! I was bummed that the night had to end.
Jenn and Mike: I'm so thrilled that you got your party and I'm even more thrilled that you graciously invited me along for the fun. I wish your family the best for the future!
