It’s 5:22am and I’ve been up for the last 2 hours. I fell into a coma after coming home this evening, much to Andy’s annoyance. We’ve been so busy lately and it’s taken its toll on our sleeping schedule. But it was kind of nice waking up at 3am to calm, cool, and quiet house, and getting a few chores done. Does that sound weird?
At any rate, it affords me the opportunity, finally, to gush about our open house we had last week at The Event Studio.
We were absolutely in awe of all the wonderful people who came out, despite the rain, and visited last Thursday. It truly went beyond all expectations and we were amazed. I can’t get too much farther into this post without expressing our heartfelt thanks to Lindsey Nartker, who was the brains behind the entire operation. Lindsey transformed the studio, which is already pretty awesome looking, into an even more magical looking space.
We were helped along with some of Lindsey’s favorite vendors, including Dooby Design Group, which was responsible for the fabulous signage and the menus featured on the table above. Outside, two tents were erected at the last minute (booo, rain!) to protect the yummy desserts area. Our friends at Motor City Cafe provided a selection of mouth-watering Italian desserts, and we also had a frost-your-own-cupcake station by Sweet & Savory Bakeshop. As if that wasn’t enough there was also a smores station set up with these adorable cast iron marshmallow toasters, and tucked into the hallway inside was a candy bar.
Another special thanks goes out to New Creations by Kate, for providing the flowers that decorated the entire space, indoors and out.
It was great to catch up with some of our clients who were kind enough to join us. There number of visitors we had was overwhelming, so I sincerely apologize that we didn’t get to talk to some of you as much as we wanted (Meredith!). It really meant a lot of to us that so many people turned out and we’d like to thank everyone who was there. At times it’s hard to believe this is all really happening to us. I didn’t by any stretch of imagination envision us having a studio space any time soon, so if I looked like a deer in the headlights, it’s only because at times this seems so surreal to me. We feel so fortunate to have made such great friends with other local vendors and look forward to meeting more people, prospective clients and vendors alike, as we get busier.
Overall the night was a HUGE success and we were so pleased with everything. Thanks again to wedding planner extrodinaire Lindsey, who started off with a great vision and made it a reality.
