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!

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 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!!!

Ana and her team were amazing to work with! My husband and I were graduating college and had very little time to do any planning, but Ana kept us on track. She was very organized and knowledgeable, so we were able to have what we wanted without all of the stress of the details. Ana had so much experience with vendors in the Ann Arbor area -- we never had to worry about the quality of our vendors, and they ended up doing an amazing job just as Ana said they would. When the wedding day finally came, nothing had been forgotten and everything went more smoothly than we could have ever imagined. We were able to truly relax and enjoy ourselves knowing she and her team were there. We never could have done it without her!

Ana was simply amazing to work with! She was friendly and professional and really embraced our idea of a science themed wedding! She was pure gold. She recommended great vendors in our budget as well as kept us on top of everything. We weren't worried about anything on the day of the wedding since she took care of everything. Our day was exactly what we wanted and perfect-without Ana and her team it definitely wouldn't have been as great! If I had to do it again I would choose her every time!

Ana and her team were a joy to work with. They kept us on track, gave excellent recommendations for other vendors, and were fun and creative. Can't recommend them enough!

Ana was so easy to work with. She wasn't pushy and didn't try to talk us into anything we didn't want to do, but we got to take advantage of all of her knowledge and organization skills. I would have spent far too much of my free time contacting vendors and making checklists and worrying about forgetting things, but Ana took all that stress away. AND, the day of our wedding, she took care of arranging all my little details and making sure things went as smoothly as possible.

Ana and Kristin did an amazing job with our wedding- we couldn't possibly have done it without them. They went above and beyond in every possible way, through the planning and on the day of. Ana helped get us through a venue change 4 months before the wedding, which sounds horribly stressful, but it wasn't because Ana took care of everything. She also has connections with some amazing vendors that I would never have found without her. Her experience and her knowledge works in your favor- when the exact purple I wanted for our linens didn't come in a chair sash, she actually got the company to make them for us and not charge us an insane amount. She found several other ways to save us money with other vendors as well. When issues came up on the day of the wedding, I never found out until after they had already been resolved. Kristin had to seek out a vacuum and clean the venue herself when it turned out it hadn't been cleaned from the previous night's wedding. She found me flowers to toss when it turned out I didn't have a tossing bouquet. We created a really specific timeline, but when I wanted to change it slightly on the day of the wedding she worked with the bandleader and took care of it without a problem. Even if you're someone like me, who thought I could do the whole wedding on my own, you definitely need them for the day of the wedding and I'm so glad I chose to hire them for the planning as well. I might have been able to pull of a wedding on my own, but it would never have been anywhere near as perfect, enjoyable and beautiful as it was with Two Foot Creative's input.

Hiring Ana and her team was one of the best decisions we made! We started working with her about a year before our wedding and her help was invaluable. She is very friendly, organized, and fun. She had great vendor recommendations to fit our needs and every one of them was amazing! The day of our wedding we got to sit back and relax and know that everything was taken care of.

Nate and I had an excellent experience with Ana and TwoFoot Creative! Our wedding was all we had hoped for and exceeded all expections. Ana took the stress out of the wedding day and let us just enjoy the biggest day of our lives.
Even though she was just over 8 months pregnant for our wedding, she had her husband Gene helping out, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the two of them together as the husband and wife wedding planning team in the future, because they did an amazing job together!
Other than Ana looking like she was ready to pop, you wouldn't have known she was about to give birth. She was extremely professional, energetic, and passionate (she wore heels the whole night!), you can tell she loves what she does. Nate and I used Ana for the entire wedding planning process and it was definitely worth it. She broke down our budget at the beginning and we were within a couple hundred dollars at the end, even with adding some additional items to spice things up.
Ana made our lives/wedding experience a lot easier and a lot more enjoyable. The reception site looked even better than we had ancticipated, and our guests raved about how much fun and beautiful the reception was. I would HIGHLY recommend Ana and TwoFoot Creative as your wedding planner!!!
