Merry Me Events took on the challenge of designing this waterfront, tented wedding in only two months. By incorporating Bobby’s family lakefront home as their inspiration, they set up a tent and designed an al fresco evening that left guests in awe that would’ve never guessed it wasn’t their original plan.

Kayle & Bobby

Due to the timing of our wedding, there were many unexpected changes. Katie remained consistent and positive every step of the way. Katie is relatable, understanding, sweet and professional. She takes the time to get to know you and what is important to you on your wedding day. I am so thankful for her, she was such a huge part of making our day perfect! I can confidently say, hiring Katie was the best decision we made!
