Vacation? or A work weekend?

This weekend I had a BLAST!  Myself, and 2 of my bestfriends, along with the owner of All Grand Events had the opportunity to decorate for a wedding this weekend at the Bay Harbor Yacht Club in Bay Harbor, Michigan, up near Petoskey.  It was AMAZINGLY beautiful!!
It was a picture perfect weekend for the Bride and Groom!  Sunny and 80 at the Little Traverse Bay, it couldn't be more perfect!

We left All Grand Events with two work vehicles loaded to the brim on Friday morning at 10am, drove 4 hours north and arrived at this house in Bay Harbor to set up tables and linens for the rehearsal dinner.  A chef was hired to cater the event for 90 people.
After rehearsal set up, we headed to the church for the rehearsal so I could get a feel of the wedding and help with the wedding party.  Can you say LOOONG Catholic service? But beautiful church!
After rehearsal at the church we had a few hours to start setting up the reception hall before we had to be back at the house to tear down from the rehearsal dinner.  The Dining Room for the reception was spectacular!  After hours and hours of creating centerpieces throughout the wee hours of the night and morning (Yes, we NEVER went to sleep that night, we just worked right on through.)  we were done and ready for guest arrival! 
Here are a few pics I took with my phone, they are not the best, but you get the idea.
The Bride chose Navy Blue, Hot Pink andLime green for her colors and it turned out fabulous, especially for an event at a yacht club, it was very nautical.

We used sliced limes at the base of the Pilsner vase and had a hot pink orchid submerged with water and an Omni candle on top.

We created two floral arrangements, one with hot pink flowers and the other lime green flowers and placed them on 24" martini glasses and added 5 tea light candles at the base, stunning!

A finished table with ivory crushed linens, ivory napkins, wine glasses and silverware.

Looking across the room.
After the ballroom was set up we had a few hours to eat a delicious dinner, go to Kilwins for dessert, shop downtown Bay Harbor, then take a 3 hour nap before tear down.  Sunday we slept in at the hotel, ate lunch, did a little more shopping, then drove home.  It was quite the adventure, and I LOVED every minute of it!
