Shortly after we got engaged, my fiancé and I discussed getting married in Ann Arbor and decided that we would need to hire a local wedding planner since we live out of state. We planned a last minute trip to AA for some venue hunting and I started calling planners, hoping we might be able to fit in a few meetings, the week prior to our visit. Only two planners were able to meet with us on such short notice. Ana Skidmore, of TwoFoot Creative, was our first meeting that Saturday morning and we actually canceled our meeting with the second planner about ten minutes after leaving Ana. Ana was smart, friendly, and we were quite impressed by the fact that she fit in a meeting with us only a few hours before she had another wedding! In fact, she invited us to come back that evening and see her -- and that evening’s event -- in action. Little did she know that we had already decided to book her! And little did we know that Ana would prove to be invaluable, would make this experience incredibly easy and fun, and would be someone that we now consider a friend! Since we lived far from Ann Arbor, we chose TwoFoot Creative’s Diamond package, for full service wedding planning. This might have been the single best wedding-related decision we made. Ana helped us with every single facet of this wedding. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we couldn’t have pulled off such a wonderful event without her. She really took the time to figure out who we were, what we liked (and definitely noted what we disliked and steered us clear of any vendors who wouldn’t have fit our tastes!), and how to make us happy. When it came time to book other vendors, Ana weeded through the hundreds of local vendors for us and recommended a select group of photographers, florists, bands, and videographers that she thought we might mesh well with. Thanks to her, we ended up with the BEST vendors ever. One of the things that made this whole process so enjoyable was that I quickly learned that I could trust Ana’s judgment and rely on her opinions. Ana really understood what we were like and what we wanted out of this day. For the last year, Ana has been my eyes and ears in Ann Arbor. My now-husband and I flew in on a few different occasions for tastings, flower/décor meetings, and to handle assorted wedding-related tasks. But Ana took care of 95% of the work and kept us organized, on track, and entirely minimized the pre-wedding panic that I see a lot of brides experience.
I could continue to wax on about how wonderful Ana was throughout the year, but the proof lies in the fact that we had the best wedding we could have imagined and that it went off flawlessly. The entire weekend ran smoothly, there were no major or minor disasters; Ana and her team handled every detail so that I (and my family and bridal party) could relax, and my husband and I had SO much fun. Yes, Ana is a wedding planner and she pulled off a totally spectacular event that we will never forget. But Ana is so much more than that. She is a friend, she is a therapist, and she is ready, willing, and able to deal with anything (family drama, bridal anxiety, emergency seamstress when a dress bustle rips, bride-breakfast-feeder on the wedding). Ridiculously organized, a perfectionist, and a little blonde bulldog when necessary Ana was the ideal wedding planner and we are so thankful that we found her! I would highly recommend Ana's services to anyone! Our wedding wouldn’t have been possible without her.
Ana Skidmore of Twofoot Creative helped us plan, design, and carry out the most PERFECT wedding! She was a huge factor in how well the rehearsal, outdoor garden wedding and tent reception at Meadow Brook Hall went for my August wedding. She is ridiculously organized, experienced, supportive, understanding, efficient, ready with options and alternatives, has many good vendor contacts, and is well prepared and ready for emergencies.
I live across the country and was only able to make several trips back to Michigan before the wedding so Ana and I worked together mainly over phone and email. She was a delight to work with and I will miss all of our phone calls and emails! She understood my desire to plan and design a fun and beautiful atmosphere for our wedding and she was a wonderful, calming presence through the last few stressful weeks.
Ana helped ensure that all of our plans were carried out seamlessly. My husband and I had a BLAST at our wedding. Everything turned out even more perfect than we could have imagined and I credit much of that to Ana. I was able to completely relax on the day of my wedding, knowing that Ana was handling everything. It was wonderful to be able to live in the moment and enjoy my ceremony and reception, while chatting with guests and dancing on the dancefloor, without worrying about anything! She understood how detail-oriented I was, especially about the decorations and the tent layout, and she made sure everything was set up exactly as I had planned. After my bustle ripped during my father-daughter dance, Ana followed me around with a bag of safety pins and fixed my dress so that I could dance the rest of the night.
I had so much fun at my wedding that I would repeat it all again in a heartbeat and there is no doubt that Ana would be a part of it. I have received many notes from guests telling me that ours was the best, most beautiful, and most seamlessly run wedding that they have ever attended and I don't think that would have been possible without Ana. Thank you!!
My husband and I chose TwoFoot Creative to help us with vendor referrals while planning our wedding and for our wedding day coordination and we're so glad that we did. We were happy with all the vendors we were referred to and their services on the wedding day. We didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day because our wedding coordinator, Melanie, took care of everything. She made everything go smoothly as we had planned and anything that needed to slightly change during the day she consulted us quickly and then made the adjustments just as quickly. Melanie is such a kind and sweet woman. She is so easy to work with, is flexible and responds to communications very quickly. I had such a great time planning with her. She made me feel at ease when I was stressed in the last few weeks before the wedding. I feel that she really cares about her clients and wants them to be happy and have their wedding be all that they hoped for. Choose TwoFoot Creative and you will be so happy that you did!
I started planning my wedding two years in advance. I had not been in any weddings, my family was from over seas and I was simply clueless as to where to start. So I started searching online for wedding planners. Numerous options arose, but what stood out to me was the countless numbers of positive reviews TwoFoot Creative received. I scheduled a meeting with Ana and from there the planning began!
Ana and Melanie assisted me in more ways than I can even begin to explain. From helping me to select the perfect venues for my ceremony and reception to scheduling meetings with vendors (who were thrilled when I mentioned working with Ana). They were true assets throughout the entire process. For a perfectionist and organizer like myself, having professionals to guide my neurotic antics was just what I needed.
My wedding day was flawless, all of my vendors were coordinated and a timeline was followed so that there were no surprises. Ana and Melanie were professional and organized. When one of my groomsmen's boutonnieres disintegrated before the ceremony during photos Ana remedied the problem and found him a replacement. I didn't find out till the wedding was over (I was none the wiser, didn't notice, didn't stress). When I forgot my flats in my hotel room, Melanie left the reception to get them so I could spend the night dancing in shoes shorter than 4inch heels. The only thing I had to worry about was what bikini to pack the next day for my honeymoon, it was that stress free :)
Working with TwoFoot was the best decision my husband and I made! They were absolutely, positively incredible and my wedding would not have been what it was without them. We are truly grateful to have been able to work with them!
TwoFoot coordinated our wedding at the Michigan League. I 100% recommend TwoFoot Creative. Ana helped me choose my vendors by making some great recommendations, she answered all of my silly questions for about 9 months leading up to the wedding, she met with me in person (more than once), and overall just made me feel like my event was in good hands. And it was. Ana showed up Friday night for the rehearsal, and from then on she made sure our wedding went smoothly. I didn't have to worry about anything. Ana and her staff were very professional, and obviously very experienced. Ana thought of things I would have never thought of - I'm convinced she's prepared for anything, and nothing could ever shake her calm and cool manner. My advice to future brides is to definitely hire a good coordinator, and for brides in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area - choose TwoFoot! One more thing - other vendors in this area know and love TwoFoot. This made the planning even easier.
Ana from Twofoot Creative was amazing! We did the basic package which allowed us 3 meetings and coordination & set-up for our wedding weekend. But Ana never limited us to just those services and always made herself available for calls or emails if we needed assistance. She consistently provided great recommendations for vendors and making countless decisions during the planning process. Her expertise and experience were invaluable. The 3 meetings were incredibly helpful in addressing our questions and getting us organized. She also provided helpful documents such as a suggested timeline of wedding planning To-Do's. During the wedding weekend, she was a rock. She did everything we asked of her and beyond, including making sure everything from the reception site was accounted for and transported to the hotel (no easy task given the late night craziness). She also kept us stress-free by helping to manage any minor issues that surfaced throughout the weekend. I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for amazing wedding planning services! Thanks Ana!
Ana and her team had us hooked from the very beginning. When my husband and I wanted a wedding in AA but lived in Chicago, we knew we needed help. We interviewed a few wedding planners but fell in love with Ana's sense of humor and professionalism. She made planning the wedding fun and made us feel like we were her only clients! Ana went above and beyond to make us feel as comfortable as possible with every decision. Her list of recommended vendors was a life savor in itself since we knew nobody. From timelines to online document storage, Ana can do it all.
When it came to the wedding day, Ana and her team were working from the break of dawn. Her ability to juggle multiple priorities and schedule her time is the most efficient I have ever seen as she seemed to be in multiple places at the same time. While we were enjoying the ceremony and vows, Ana was busy planning out the next steps and directing all the guests. At the reception she was coordinating with all the vendors (we had two music groups, videographer, photographer, babysitters for the kids, and continuous shuttle service for the guests) and seemed to handle it all with ease. After it was over, she helped clean everything up and pack the cars with all the presents and flowers which allowed us to leave care-free.
At the end of the day, the TwoFoot Creative service was by far the best investment we made for our wedding. Everything was so beautiful and flawless. We absolutely couldn't have done it without Ana. Thank you so much for everything you did (and are still doing for us)!!

I can't thank Ana and the Two Foot Creative team enough. I didn't think it was possible, but our wedding exceeded our expectations (x1000).
Before I hired Ana, I had interviewed most of the wedding planners that worked in the Ann Arbor area, as we were planning our wedding from out-of-state so it was crucial our planner was fabulous. We hired Ana for full-service planning and I have to say that for everything she did, her prices were shockingly reasonable (she practically paid for herself by all the vendor deals she secured). Furthermore, she was extremely professional and organized throughout the entire planning process. Any time anyone in my family emailed or called her, she promptly got back to us. She also was a great problem solver. Additionally, she respected our opinions and didn't impose on our vision while also coming up with some awesome ideas. It's also apparent that she has a great relationship with all the major wedding vendors in the area. Every time we booked a vendor (florist, makeup artist, baker), I heard the same comment "you're so lucky to be working with Ana, she's wonderful" and I have to agree. Ana is exceptionally organized, efficient, smart, and a pleasure to work with and anyone looking for a wedding planner would be lucky to have her!
Ana was my wedding planner and she was so helpful regarding all of my vendors. I wanted to do all my own decorations and I told her how I wanted them used/set up at my wedding and she did it perfectly. She made the wedding planning experience seamless and stress free! I was getting married in a city I did not know well and she gave me multiple choices for each vendor choice (caterer, rentals, florist, etc). She told me what I needed to expect at each meeting and how to go about things the proper way. She was so helpful and friendly! I would recommend her to anyone in or around Ann Arbor area.
I was lucky enough to have Ana and the Twofoot team recommended to me, and it was truly a pleasure to work with them! Ana was willing to set up phone meetings with me since I was out of town, and worked with me every step of the way. When I met my florist in Michigan, she came to meet me since we had not been able to set up a face-to-face meeting.
As it got closer to the big day, the TwoFoot team kept me updated on payment deadlines and other important information. They made sure everything was on track for our wedding. When my fiance and I arrived in Ann Arbor, she came to our venue and met with us to make sure all details were finalized. She also worked to get us into our venue a bit early, so that my mom could set up our candy bar/dessert table. I joked around that I was high-maintenance because I showed up to our meeting with binders for everyone involved in setting up the venue, but Ana talked through everything with me and reassured me that everything would be taken care of! I truly did not have to worry about a thing!
She made sure that the rehearsal ran smoothly, and when I wanted to groomsmen to enter a bit differently than they normally did, she made sure that all of the groomsmen understood the new procession and that it was able to happen. She was there every step of the way on the big day as well...helping us the morning of, as soon as we got into the church, and throughout the ceremony. After the ceremony, she and her team helped to stop traffic so that we could do a beautiful photo of the bridal party in the streets of Ann Arbor. Not only did her and her team do a fabulous job throughout they day, they made sure the entire day was both flawless and perfect. All of the "behind the scenes" work was taken care of and she made sure that we did not have to worry about a thing.
I was truly blessed to be able to work with her on the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding day. Investing in TwoFootCreative was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding, and our day was 100% perfect because of her and her dedication to our special day! Thank you Ana and TwoFoot!
Ana and her assistants, Elyse and Jessy, at TwoFoot Creative were so helpful in organizing my wedding day and making sure everything was set up and smoothly executed. They were so organized and I can't imagine not having them there. Anytime I needed anything, Ana was there to answer my questions. She and her assistant met with me to set up a timeline and listen to how I wanted the reception set up. On the day of my wedding, Elyse and Jessy my go-to girls for whatever I needed. It was the best investment I could have made, and I was able to relax on my wedding day knowing that Elyse and Jessy would take care of everything. Thank you so much TwoFoot Creative!!!
We could not have planned and executed our wedding without Ana and the Twofoot team. As a bride planning a wedding from outside the area, hiring Ana was one of the first decisions we made for our wedding and was literally the best one. She made the planning process smooth and effortless. She was always there to email or meet with when we needed someone to bounce ideas off of. She was highly organized and created a seemless timeline for the day of. My wedding day was perfect. It looked beautiful and I was able to relax, enjoy seeing my guests and party the night away. The reason for that is that Ana and her team were in the background, ironing out any wrinkles that may have come up. I cannot thank her and the team enough for their effort!! :)
I've worked with Ana on many events in the past (and still do!) through work, so when my best friend asked me if I knew of any good day-of coordinators for her wedding, Ana was #1 on my list. My friend was married this past August at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial and it was a beautiful, beautiful wedding. Most brides have horror stories to tell about their wedding day, but I can honestly say my friend doesn't have one single complaint; largely due to Ana and her team. Ana's professional, yet humble and friendly attitude helps keep any bride cool and calm. Her attention to detail really helped make the day go by without one single hitch. She was eager and ready to help with any and all issues from the moment the bridal party started getting ready all the way until the last person exited the reception hall for the night. This was my first time working with her on a personal level and I am very, very glad she was a part of my friend's special day. If you are looking for someone to help make your wedding the most memorable day I 100% recommend using Two Foot Creative!!! :)
When my fiancé and I started planning our wedding, we were at odds about whether to hire a coordinator. Hands down, working with Twofoot and Melanie was the best decision we could have ever made! Melanie was knowledgable, kind, reassuring, and so incredibly helpful in the days leading up to and on our wedding day. We had an issue with flowers for the grandparents on the wedding day and Melanie jumped right in to make sure that everyone had their flowers in time for the ceremony. We were able to enjoy our wedding day, stress-free because we knew Melanie had our backs and was ready to tackle anything that came her way. At the end of the reception my husband, who was skeptical about needing a coordinator, agreed that having Melanie was the best planning decision we made. If that's not enough of a testimonial to the wonderful work that Twofoot Creative does, I don't know what is! A million thank yous to Melanie and the Twofoot team for making our wedding day so very special and perfect!
Ana and her staff at Twofoot planned the most beautiful perfect wedding for my daughter. We picked probably the most complicated venue that could be found (Natural History Museum) and Ana balanced so many different aspects and vendors and it was seamless to me. My daughter and I were able to not be worried before the wedding and were not stressed about everything coming together because we knew Ana had it. The day of the wedding we were all able to enjoy the wedding and talk with our family and friends as Ana and her team managed all the details. She was so in control of everything and helped everyone to have a wonderful time. I've had dozens of comments from friends and family that this was the best wedding they ever attended and it was all because of Ana and Twofoot.
Ana Skidmore of TwoFoot Creative provided excellent wedding planning service to my out-of-state bride daughter and to me ( Michigan mother of the bride). She has excellent communication skills, an eye for details, knows vendors, was well known and respected by the staff at Meadow Brook Hall, which was the location of our wedding & reception, and was always ready with alternatives and options to consider. She assisted at our rehearsal, as well as at the wedding & reception. Also, Ana arrived at the wedding. prepared with a suitcase full of emergency items for the bride's dressing room. Ana kept us on schedule, helped develop our initial budget, and was the support person we needed and appreciated. She stayed through the reception and helped pack up items we took home after the wedding. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. Having great weather for an outdoor garden wedding and tent reception was another huge plus---maybe Ana had a hand in that, too! As MOB, I was able to enjoy the festivities with no worries, and had a good time as a hostess. Thank you to TwoFoot Creative!
Ryan and I wanted to tell you how appreciative we are of all your help and leadership during our wedding weekend. We were THRILLED with how everything went! The ceremony progressed beautifully, our guests had an amazing time both during the cocktail hour and at the reception, and throughout it all, you were a calming influence to everyone involved. Thanks so much to you and your assistants for helping bring our vision to a reality! We had a wonderful time, and couldn't have done it with you.

From the day we first met Ana from TwoFoot Creative we knew that we had chosen an incredible wedding planner. We cannot imagine how we would have planned this beautiful, extraordinary and breathtaking wedding without her.
Even during her own event of given birth to a beautiful baby girl in the middle of all our planning, she always had time, patience and answers for us. With her recommendations of vendors (photographer, videographer, DJ, officiant, florist, cake, invitations, makeup and hair, etc.) she helped narrow down choices and truly helped eliminate all the overwhelming searches for Tara (the bride).
We trusted Ana with her references and they all were remarkable! Sometimes people may think that if you acquire a wedding planner you lose the feeling of being part of planning and decision making of the wedding when actually it is quite the opposite, Ana assisted in making the planning and experience of this wedding so much more because she understood the bride and groom’s vision of their day and helped guide them in their choices, she would make suggestions if needed or just would listen and make sure that their decisions and dreams became a reality.
We are still in awe of all that she did the day of the wedding. It is truly amazing that Ana and her team transformed the theater and the Henry Ford Museum into a stunning reception in the small amount of time they had. The communication and the organization with the venue and all the vendors that day are simply incredible. She was always calm and professional and helped put us at ease. Ana and her staff worked so hard yet made it seem so effortless and we truly appreciated it.
Our friends and families are still talking about how magical and unique the wedding day was. Tara and I have said numerous times “What would we have done without Ana?” We unquestionably enjoyed the whole process with Ana. She became more than a “Wedding Planner” to us; she became part of our family and a long-time friend! Thank you Twofoot Creative for making Tara and Ryan’s dream wedding a reality.

I worked with Kristen in specific. She was timely and organized. Great personality and easy to get along with. Helpful with giving opinions. I only had to say things once and she always took notes. Kept organized timeline and dispersed amongst vendors so we were all on same page. Was extremely helpful on day of wedding with organization and orchestration of a somewhat complex ceremony. The only thing that could have gone better was timing. We were already 20 minutes late by the time the ceremony started, which put us an hour behind by dinner :(
I decided early on that I wanted to have a day of coordinator to help me organize some last minute details and so that neither I nor any family or friends would have to worry about setting up the room on our wedding day. What I didn't realize is how much of a relief it would be in all aspects of my wedding planning! Ana was the BEST coordinator I could ever ask for. She contacted all of my vendors, had everything all set up, and troubleshooted every possible problem along the way... and the best part was that I didn't have to worry about any of it! On the day of, she had everything set up so beautifully with attention to detail in a way that I would never have thought of. She was so prepared for anything that could have possibly gone wrong on the day of as well. We realized at quite an inopportune time that my dress was still too long, and I was tripping over it after my ceremony and during pictures. She had with her an emergency kit and she and her assistant sat down on the floor and pinned up my dress so that I wouldn't trip, and it didn't even look like it was pinned! I could go on and on about all the great things they did, but overall, if you are looking for a day of coordinator (and they do more than just day of!), you absolutely can't go wrong with Ana at TwoFoot Creative!!!
