Thank you!


It is both an honor and an extreme privilege for me to announce that A Day in May was voted as The Best Wedding Planner in the Traverse City Area via Up North Live and is now a member of Traverse City's A-List Vendors!

Voting began about two months ago and ADIM was nominated! (Thank you for whomever nominated us!) There were over 14,000 votes cast for the A-List and we'd like to thank everyone who left us encouraging and heartfelt comments as well as those who showed their support in voting!

Having officially broken onto the stage over two years ago we are still in awe of the incredible people and clients that come our way. I truly have the greatest job... yes days can be long and weekends working can be difficult but the reward is so sweet. There is nothing that brings me more satisfaction than the happiness on my clients' faces!!

Cheers to all our phenomenal colleges who were also nominated and big thanks to those of you whom we work with regularly. There is no "I" in team and sometimes it takes an Army to execute a wedding!

Thank you again to all of you who believe in pursuing your dreams. Mine has just begun and I cannot wait to see where it takes me!!

Another reason...

... why I love Etsy.com!

Freya Art is a fabulous designer who specializes in unique prints. What a great wedding invitation or special party announcement! Be sure to check out her website. I adore this bird cage print... isn't it so true!



Maybe today is the day to spread your wings!

The Big Picture


Photo by Ben Harrison Photography.

Many clients and contacts ask me, "Alicia, what is your favorite part of the day or planning process?" Those who know me know that I am a detail freak and fine stationary aficionado- there is nothing more beautiful than a deep letterpress or an engraved sheet of pressed cotton. It's like finding the last pair of Christian Louboutin nude pumps in your size- sends chills down my spine! But, at heart, I am a helpless romantic.

My most favorite part of the whole process from design to action is the wedding ceremony itself. There is something so magical and awe inspiring to see two people commit their lives together forever. In our society marriage is not taken seriously. It's been viewed as a "convenient relationship" not a "lasting covenant."

Call me biased but I love our Pastor! One of my favorite parts of our wedding was when he asked the congregation to stand and promise to guide and lead Kyle and I through our marriage, to come along side us in times of need and to mentor to each of us. Every single guest at our wedding pledged to support us. It wasn't about witnessing the legalizing of our marriage and signing a document. It was about honoring us and honoring our commitment.

Now I'm not telling you to hire our Pastor or that you have to have a religious wedding ceremony. But what I am encouraging you all to think about is the moment. The moment when two lives become one. The moment a new family is born. That moment, that instant is just as important as the rest of your wedding.

Next time you are at a wedding, or if you are planning your own wedding, do me a favor and step back to take a look at the Big Picture. There would not be an open bar, gold flatware, crystal goblets and flowers dripping from centerpieces at a wedding without the wedding itself. So instead of nodding off during the ceremony or day dreaming, listen up... you could learn something!
