Thank you again so much for making Alex and Greg’s wedding perfect. It was great having you there to take away any stress and manage the day. The flowers were magnificent as well as the linens, table settings, atmosphere, etc… Every detail was done to perfection. You have a wonderful staff who is very professional and works hard to make things just right. The best part is that it is exactly what Alex envisioned!

I don’t even know where to begin!! If you are looking for a vendor for all your wedding needs, you don’t need to look any further because MDF is absolutely a blessing to the wedding industry. After having my first consult with Jenn and Amanda I knew I wanted to hire them. We went from changing our initial plan of just using MDF for our floral needs to having them assist us with everything on the day of. Amanda worked with us throughout the year to help us plan our Grand Rapids wedding from Texas. I gave them my boring simple ideas and she came back with a beautiful exquisite plan with everything I had asked for. She paid close attention and remembered every little detail I had mentioned. Amanda was quick to return my emails and great at giving suggestions for vendors. We ended up hiring Karyn May Photography (BEST CHOICE), Hunter’s bakery, as well as Cheeky Strut Salon as recommendations from Amanda and they were all absolutely amazing! In all of the planning process not only did we change venues but our second venue did completely finish construction until LESS THAN A MONTH before our wedding day. Jenn and Amanda visited the site a few times for us and reassured us that everything will come together in the end. The MDF team put together a design plan for the reception that was able to allow us to keep our vietnamese tradition of a 10-course meal but still giving us the beautiful romantic look we wanted for the tables. The table linens and design were beautiful! MDF especially delivered when it came to florals. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! The bridal party bouquets were FULL of exquisite blooms and just simply gorgeous. We have gotten so many compliments at how beautiful our floral was at the reception and how everything came together. Everything went so smoothly and we were able to enjoy our reception with our family and friends stress free! As busy as MDF is, they are a team who truly treats all their brides as if they were the only one planning a wedding. They are absolutely professional, easy to work with, and super fun to be around! Thank you for being so AMAZING!

The Modern Day Team is amazing. They listened carefully to everything my daughter and her fiancé envisioned for their magically beautiful wedding, and made all their dreams come true. On the wedding day, I knew I could relax to enjoy to the fullest that fabulous day. I am ever so grateful to Jenn and her wonderful team of artists, planners, and implementers. They truly did craft a magical wedding experience for all of us.
— Nancy, Mother of the Bride
Modern Day Events & Floral didn’t just exceed our expectations on my daughter’s wedding day once...they did it twice! Their amazing team transformed our event space from a garden-esque ceremony venue into an elegant ballroom in a brisk two hours! From the first consultation, we knew we were in the best of hands. Jenn’s ability to take ideas and create a memorable and magical landscape is unparalleled. “Breathtaking” was the word used by family and friends most often when they came into the ballroom...first for the wedding ceremony and then again, totally transformed for the reception. Not only did the Modern Day team gather spectacular flowers, greenery and linens from across the country to complete the designs, almost every piece was used for both the ceremony and the reception but somehow managed to look completely different! The WOW factor was beyond belief. Weeks after the wedding, our friends and family are still talking about the beautiful setting Modern Day created for my daughter’s big day. I guess the “proof in the pudding” was the moment Jenn came to get my daughter that day, took her into the ballroom to see the setting for the ceremony and my daughter cried because it was so beautiful!

Just like the previous client said... I don’t even know where to begin...?!? It has been three weeks since my husband and I were married... and I STILL have post wedding blues; and a major reason is because we are no longer planning with Amanda and Jennifer at MDF. From our first meeting to the end of our wedding reception... these two ladies were there every step of the way, along with their amazing team. Amanda and Jennifer are both so passionate about what they do... and they truly want you to have the best wedding ever. My mother and I would sometimes find ourselves tearing up at meetings... because we felt so taken care of. From planning, to setting things up with vendors, to the itinerary of the wedding day... and finally the actual wedding day-everything was organized and perfect. Our reception room was so beautifully done, that it took our breath away! I was speechless for a good 5 minutes, after seeing the room for the first time. Any issues that did occur, were promptly fixed and taken care of. I could go on for hours... It was one of the best decisions to go with MDF, for our wedding. MDF: thank you so much for such a wonderful wedding experience. We will forever be grateful for all of your hard work, time, and kindness. We love you!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
— Wendy, Bride
I haven’t gotten a chance yet to reach out to you and thank you for the INCREDIBLE job both you and your staff did on our wedding day. Words can’t even begin to express how I felt when I saw the room prior to the reception. Blown away doesn’t even do it justice. After one year of planning, countless emails / phone calls / meetings… it still absolutely blew me away! From the moment we met, we connected… I just knew you were going to make my dream a reality and that you did. I can’t thank you and your team enough for making it a day that I will NEVER forget. I’m still completely over the moon. You’re the best there is and I will make sure everyone knows!
— Ashley, Bride
Modern Day was instrumental in facilitating my wedding day. Amanda and her team were the epitome of professionalism, competence, and class. I worked with a particularly difficult venue, and Amanda and her team made sure that everything went off without a hitch. Amanda coordinated all of my vendors; I felt i the loop but never stressed. Modern Day was incredibly receptive to my vision and went through multiple ‘drafts’ of floral and decor details to give me (pardon the cliche) the wedding of my dreams. It was ideal. This company knows how to serve its customer — it was absolutely worth the investment in the MD expertise to design and facilitate my wedding day. I can’t tell you how many guests came up to me raving about the floral arrangements and decor at the reception. All credit goes straight to Modern Day. They are THE BEST value for your money on the most important day of your life. Period.
— Kristin, Bride
Working with the staff at Modern Day was one of the best experiences. As a Mother of the Bride, I wanted a wedding that would be exactly what my daughter and future son-in-law were hoping for and I wanted to be able to be enjoy the whole experience withiout having to worry that everything was getting done, and that is exactly what we got. Not only were the flowers and reception hall exactly as my daughter had envisioned it, but I was able to enjoy the whole weekend without having to worry about thing. The staff at Modern Day are very professional and also very friendly. I felt as if I were in the hands of a trusted friend who had known me for years. Thank you, Jenn and the staff at Modern Day, for making my daughter’s wedding dreams come true.

If you are looking for ANY of the following for your wedding: planning, floral, decor, invitations, or wonderful people, then look no further! MD is the absolute best for all things wedding! We chose MD for ALL of those services for our wedding in Benton Harbor, and because of that decision we had a flawless “dream wedding.” Initially, I was looking for floral on The Knot and clicked on MD after seeing their high rating. Michigan was a destination wedding for us, so choosing vendors was a daunting task. We met on the phone with Jennifer and she was so personable, knowledgable and enthusiastic that we decided to go with MD for planning too! Do not try and plan a wedding on your own or with a different vendor. Trust me, you will save yourself time, energy and tranquility if you use a high quality planner like Jenn and MD. It was the best and most important decision I made during the wedding planning process. For a few months I worked with Amanda via email/Basecamp. She gave me vendor recommendations in our budget. You will find that many vendors take forever to respond to you as they get busier in spring/summer, but not MD! I always felt like a priority, even during their immensely busy spring/summer wedding season. Jenn and the team made sure to read the vendor’s fine print, set up their requirements and made sure they all performed the day of. I worked with Erin who created my invitations. I gave her a list of addresses, proofed PDF’s, and just like that, my beautiful invitations were out. It was a breeze and efficient. I received many compliments on Erin’s invites. In fact, I received so many compliments that I worried about the wedding living up to the invites! And oh boy, did the wedding live up to the hype! For eight months I planned every detail of my wedding with Jenn, my Mom and husband, so I thought I knew exactly what it would look like. But Jenn made it so much more magnificent than I expected. I cried upon seeing my bouquet and the tent! I told her a color palette, a few words like romantic and elegant, and made a very small Pinterest board. That’s all she needed to create the most stunning wedding I have ever seen. Trust me, those photos on your wedding Pinterest board won’t even come close to the magic Jenn will create! I want to close by listing a few of the many ways Jenn and MD are great event coordinators. Two days before our wedding I tried on my dress and it was a few sizes too big. In a panic I called Jenn, who immediately put me at ease, made me an appointment with her alterations girl in GR (who kept the shop open after-hours, that’s how well-liked and connected Jenn is), and drove the dress back to me in Benton Harbor the next day. It was the perfect fit. Most significantly, our venue’s manager changed many times the months leading up to our wedding, and Jenn essentially took over and organized our venue’s responsibilities. MD created a highly organized timeline for us that we requested to change many times. MD changed it promptly, updated all the vendors on changes and were incredibly gracious through all the editing. The wedding went exactly as planned on the timeline, smooth like butter, and we owe that to MD! Our officiant couldn’t make the ceremony rehearsal, and Jenn stepped up to run the whole thing. I heard so many wonderful things about Jenn from our bridal party, the guests, and from our venue’s employees. I could go on and on! Thanks to Jenn and the MD team for making our wedding dreams come true!

CLOUD 9 Simply put, the team at Modern Day Floral is absolutely AMAZING. The staff and their work represent the epitome of class, elegance, dedication, talent, and professionalism. I could not have been happier on my wedding day and am still on “Cloud 9”, truly. As I type this, I am still at a loss for words. When I first met with the amazing owner Jenn, and the wonderful Amanda, I had some vague descriptions of what I wanted. They helped me narrow down my vision and were able to pinpoint some of the exact thoughts I had. My floral vision included bright, bold, and unique flowers; opposite of the traditional wedding flowers (blush, white, ivory, etc.), I was a little hesitant on what to expect. We had gone over multiple pictures from my pinterest and past weddings they had done. I never saw exactly what I was envisioning, just a lot of compilations of different bits and pieces here and there of various bouquets I liked. Because I was going for something more bright and unique, the word “trust” really came into play for me. I knew what sort of product they were going to use and what bouquet pictures were used for inspiration, but I didn’t know EXACTLY what the bouquets would look like. I really had to trust them and in all honesty, they made me WANT to trust them. I never once felt scared or nervous. I was nothing but excited the entire time. Karen and Leslie delivered the bouquets to my hotel room the morning of my wedding and believe it or not, my eyes watered - I was just ecstatic. I was so excited and I was truly blown away. I cannot express how happy I was; I didn’t realize I could be so happy. The flowers were fun, unique, different, bold, and all of the above. I even had a friend’s father approach me at the wedding wanting to know where he could get flowers like mine because he wanted to get them to decorate his office in Lansing and provide floral services for his office staff. In addition, an artist at my wedding even asked to take a bouquet home with her because she wanted to draw a picture of the flowers so she could hang the portrait in her home. Bottom line, Modern Day TAKES CARE OF YOU. The team at MDF turned my vision into the most amazing reality and I cannot thank them enough for making the best day of my life even better. I was truly on Cloud 9 (and still am) and will forever recommend Modern Day Floral and will absolutely be using their services again.

Modern Day Floral and Events has my highest recommendation. My family worked with them on my sister’s wedding four years ago and we were blown away by their talent, professionalism, and capability. Before I even know about my engagement, my mom reached out to MDF and secured them for my wedding, knowing that we NEEDED them. Since my sister’s wedding, MDF has expanded their service offerings to become a full-fledged event staff in addition to their floral design expertise. This time around, we were further impressed by their hospitality, availability to their clients, and Jenn’s stunning ability to translate a couple’s essence into a one-of-a-kind event. Every member of Jenn’s team is professional, kind, and hospitable. Our trust in the MDF team allowed me to work 40+ hours/week, take 12 hours of graduate coursework, and coordinate a move to the East Coast while wedding planning...unheard of. I cannot thank the team at MDF enough for always asking, “can we do that for you?” and delivering beyond what was expected. They attended my wedding rehearsal and were available on-site for the entire wedding day. As a (type-A) bride, I was relieved to know that everything was taken care of by a team that I trusted and truly enjoyed having around. Our wedding was beyond our wildest dreams. MDF orchestrated and executed a thoroughly authentic celebration that I will be grateful for my entire life.

Hiring Modern Day Floral was one of the easiest wedding decisions that we had to make. But it wasn’t the awesome website, numerous awards, amazing reviews, or beautiful flowers that sold me. Jenn’s personality, passion, dedication, and attention to detail is what spoke to me. Jennifer is phenomenal at what she does and I knew I had to hire her within five minutes of our first phone conversation. Simply put, we were on the same page so much that I felt like she could finish my sentences. She just understood me so well that it felt like she was an extension of my own style and creativity. The wedding was in St. Joseph MI and I live on the Detroit side. Jenn didn’t hesitate to drive from Grand Rapids to meet me at the wedding venue for our first meeting. She brought all kinds off goodies to showcase her design ideas and I was in awe. I held her hostage at a coffee shop for a couple of hours afterward so we could hash out all the exciting details of the day. This in and of itself impressed my family. She made me feel like my wedding was her highest priority every step of the way. This amazed me because I know how busy she is. She went above and beyond to help me in so many ways. For example, I had a problem with my wedding favors a few days before the wedding because I was trying to save money. Jenn swooped in and told me to stop what I was doing so that she could handle it for me. She was flexible with budget as we added and subtracted, and patient as the floor plan changed a half-dozen times. I will never forget the moment I saw the reception space in full bloom. It took my breath away and I couldn’t help but think, “My gosh this is like a David Tutera TV moment.” My jaw dropped and I stood there speechless for several minutes. The space was gorgeous. After the sun had set I looked around the room at the abundance of blooms and twinkling candlelight and smiled to myself. It was such a beautiful moment. I stood there completely relaxed and content and let the memory sink in. It felt like a dream. I keep using the word “fairytale” whenever I describe the wedding and in reality I’m describing the work of Modern Day Floral. Thank you Jenn for putting your heart into your work. Thank you for your time, dedication, attention to detail, and patience. Thank you for making our special day unforgettable.
