We found Dorian through the Ann Arbor Rec & Ed Wedding Dance Class. My hubby and I had no idea how to dance before we took this class! In just 6 weeks we learned how to "Social Rhythm", "Jive", "Fox Trot", "Hustle", and some "Waltz". Dorian and his Wife are so patient and give you baby steps to learning how to get the moves down! They also have a private website tutorial for each class, and in addition to this they have a beautiful hardwood floor ball room in their home where you can attend private additional lessons. No matter if you only go to 3 classes or all 6 you will so impress your guests and totally make your wedding dance a success (and memorable)!

Fabulous Food Inc.
If you happen to live anywhere near the Ann Arbor, MI area you might not be aware of a tightly lipped secret! A local caterer to the STARS!!! When I was in need of a job back in the 90's Chef Connie McIntire took me on! She really had no idea what she was in for with me... haha, I only lasted like 6 months, I think because she liked me. But I learned so much while I was on her staff. I learned about quality, prep, wine,presentation, but most importantly I learned the art of food from a master! So, Of course I had her cater my wedding reception! Her staff is professional and prices are reasonable for moderate to high-end catering! Her staff will help with event planning and they also can provide bartending as well. They will prepare menus and estimates for your review and take you every step of the way to a flawless event!

Appetizers To Go
My Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids used Appetizers to go for my Bachelorette Party. I really did not want any gifts, just a nice get together with my girlfriends. So my Maid of Honor found a great way to cater my party from watching Oprah- On the show Oprah had a segment with New York City Gourmet Chef: Michael Schulson He started up "Appetizers to Go"... an online catering company in which you can conveniently purchase delisious gourmet goodies and have them sent to your destination. My maid of honor emailed the guests- requesting no gifts, but "Food" instead and included the link to Appetizers to go and her address for delivery! Her instructions gave each guest a category to order from and whatever food was left over, or not used for the bridal shower she used for back up appetizers for our wedding reception! The appetizers arrived fresh and ready for the freezer. She and my Bridesmaids heated everything up in the ovens exactly as the instructions said. I had one special request- my mom ordered Fresh Sea Scallops in Bacon for my shower and I can't tell you how much a hit they were! They looked and tasted as delicious as the pictures! I had these before (frozen) from my grocery store- but I so will not buy frozen again! It worked out GREAT! The leftovers and duplicate appetizers were prepared as a midnight snack for the reception- It was a hit with the guests still partying it up!

I had a dress delivered to me 2 days before my wedding from a seamstress in NY. The dress did not fit and I looked like a white marsh mellow! Frantic and discouraged my bridesmaids and I went to Davids Bridal, the staff there was WONDERFUL- supportive and empathetic- they had a rack of wedding gowns to take home and reasonably priced! I got a beautiful dress that they mended that day for me and it only cost $100.00.

Cobblestone Farm Center
This living history museum located within a pioneer Classic Revival Michigan farm house depicts early Ann Arbor settler life and the past rural life in Washtenaw County. A 100 year old log cabin is also on site. The Barn is BEAUTIFUL, historic and well lit! My ceremony was in front of the Barn doors at sunset! It captured some great pictures! There is a kitchen on the premise, an upstairs loft dining room that overlooks the entire first floor dining room, and so much more!
