BLOOM Open Studio Workshop

Last month we were honored to attend a fun floral event hosted by Jen at BLOOM floral design. She was kind enough to invite us into her home for a morning of flower arranging and good conversation. It was so nice to have a stress free opportunity to visit with some of our other wedding industry friends before we're all in the heat of wedding season. It's so important for us as professionals to take these opportunities to spend time with one another.   


Jen hopes to host more of these mini get-togethers and we hope for more opportunities like these that foster great relationships! Thank you to Weber Photography for all images! 

Welcome To the New Simply Blue Weddings!

Welcome to the new Simply Blue Weddings! We are so glad you're here! If you're following us on Instagram (if you're not, then you should!) then you already know that we're Margaret and Rachel from Sincerely, Ginger Weddings and we are so excited to be the new owners of Simply Blue! We feel so honored and privileged to be stepping into this role & we can't wait to bring Simply Blue Weddings brand new, fresh content. For those of you who are new to Simply Blue Weddings, we encourage you to head on over to our About page to learn about the heart behind Simply Blue. 

Simply Blue Weddings has two unique aspects to its purpose. A large part of Simply Blue is this, the blog! The Simply Blue Weddings blog will aim to provide brides with weekly inspiration and tips as they plan their wedding as well as showcase the amazing talent that Northern Michigan has to offer by featuring area local vendors. During this exciting time, we hope the blog will be a support during the planning process as well as a friend for the journey.  

The even more amazing part of Simply Blue is our Vendor Guide -- which will feature a variety of carefully crafted local vendors from floral designers to photographers, to caterers, and wedding planners. All to provide couples with one resource they can trust when choosing their wedding vendors. The Vendor Guide also strives to foster a collaborative and supportive industry among local professionals. We are currently looking for wedding and event professionals who have experience working with real couples in Northern Michigan, who exude passion for their work, value collaboration in our industry, and are dedicated to giving their clients the best possible service they are able to. Here at Simply Blue Weddings, our intention is to support the collaborative environment our industry thrives in. We want to help vendors reach their ideal client naturally by sharing their best work through the blog, social media, and in our live interactions with engaged couples. Keep your eyes open for the Vendor Guide to launch this Spring!

Ultimately, the core purpose of Simply Blue Weddings is to bring together the professional and creative talent found in our region's wedding industry with engaged couples looking to host their wedding in Northern Michigan. Our intention is to bring the area to the forefront of the Destination Wedding Industry through our focus on the creative, unique, and artistic talent Northern Michigan has to offer. We exist to give a voice to professionals who are the best at what they do, and to be a support to couples during this exciting time. 

We are continually grateful to the founders of Simply Blue Weddings who started this movement and are excited to continue the tradition of featuring amazing Northern Michigan weddings here on the blog. Again, we can't thank you enough that you are here. We hope that you find Simply Blue Weddings as a place of support and a source of inspiration. We can't wait to see this community grow and thrive and we invite you to be a part of the journey!
