Mary Jane & Jim, Part I

Photography by the incredible talents of Brian and Kathy Widdis of Widdis Photography from Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.

I was in Detroit the end of 2008 driving on the 696 during rush hour traffic (for those unfamiliar with Detroit and it's inhabitant's driving skills, the 696 is like the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona) when my phone rang. On the other line was Jane Meyer, the mother of Mary Jane (MJ) Meyer who was to planning a July wedding in Michigan. I'll spare you the details of our hour conversation (yes, while driving and navigating with GPS) but turned out that I had met her daughter while at Michigan State once visiting Kyle AND that they owned the ski resort where my grandparent's were some of the first developers and where my family learned how to ski.

Fast forward two months when I was first reunited with MJ and met Jane over lunch in Traverse City. MJ is a long lost sister with the organization skills of a teacher (yep, she is one!) and a heart as pure as gold. A Day in May, Event Planning & Design stepped into the planning and design process where MJ, Jane and MJ's fiance, Jim, had left off- and boy did we hit the ground running.

MJ and Jim wanted their guests (who traveled across the country but were primarily from Michigan and Chicago) to experience the Northern Michigan they love and the resort where MJ grew up. MJ and her mother Jane loved the vibrant green colors of summer which inspired our fresh yet slightly preppy color scheme!

Mixing the casual and laid back summers of Northern Michigan with the excitement of the city, their July, 25th wedding at Caberfae Peaks, in Cadillac, was perfect- even with the early morning rain! Allow me to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Jim Schremser...

Big thanks again to Widdis Photography for capturing MJ & Jim's special day, stay tuned for more great details from their soiree!
