We’re a team of creative, quick-thinking young professionals who have combined our planning and design expertise to craft one-of-a kind weddings for couples looking to celebrate their love surrounded by the beauty of Northern Michigan. Oh, and we have a lot of fun along the way – promise.

We believe that love is love – it should be celebrated freely and comes in all forms. We look forward to learning about what makes your relationship unique and helping you to bring that to life on your wedding day.

Meaghan


Owner

Meaghan has been producing events professionally since 2011. She started out coordinating weddings for a top wedding planning company while completing her degree in Special Event Management from the University of Florida.

Meaghan’s love affair with Northern Michigan began when her parents purchased a cottage on Green Lake in Interlochen when she turned seven and became a “summer kid.” After spending every summer up north, she knew that she was a Michigan girl at heart and relocated to Traverse City after college, where she has continued to direct weddings and social events.

Though she’s still not a fan of snow in April (the worst), Meaghan still cannot get enough of Northern Michigan and loves working with couples to plan their dream weddings in a place that holds so much meaning to her.

Meaghan drinks her coffee black, her wine red and takes her fries in any form. When she’s not planning weddings, she is likely rehearsing for a show at her local community theater, quoting Parks and Rec, or talking about how cute her dog and son are.


 

Kelsey


Lead Planner

Kelsey joined fox + fern after mastering her organizational, multi-tasking & event-coordinating skills for over a decade in hospitality management & award-winning fine-dining.

A native of Chicago, Kelsey has a degree in business management from Northwestern Michigan College and has lived in Traverse City for the better part of TWO decades.

Kendal


Lead Planner

Kendal studied recreation and event management at Central Michigan University. While at CMU, Kendal began skiing at Shanty Creek Resorts in Bellaire and frequenting the Short’s Brewing Pub. When it came time to apply for events internships for graduation, she knew exactly where she wanted to end up – Northern Michigan.

The stars aligned and Kendal landed a festival and events internship at Short’s Brewing Company in 2014. While interning, Kendal met her now husband Tyler and realized that Northern Michigan was going to be her new home. In 2018, she took her love of weddings and attention to detail to the next level, and she joined the fox + fern family.

When she is not working a wedding, Kendal can be found baking, hanging out with her dog Beau, enjoying a cold beer, or exploring the outdoors in her new hometown of Traverse City.


 
  • What really set them apart in my mind, was the genuine care and comfort that they provided, not only to the bride and her attendants, but to the entire bridal party, the families, and the guests.
    Cyndi, Mother of the Bride
  • Amazingly organized, proactive, kind yet firm, problem solvers, and intensely dedicated to every single detail.
    Kristin, Bride
  • I was able to be stress-free the week before the wedding because I knew they would take care of anything that came up!
    Bryn, Bride
  • They were able to keep calm, and most importantly, keep us calm. Throughout the day, we were unaware of any situations that had not gone as planned. I credit this to their knowledge of wedding coordinating, ability to communicate with the correct people, positive attitudes, and the ability to make quick but important decisions.
    Patrick, Groom
  • They are seriously so good at what they do. We were blessed to have them.
    Megan, Bride
  • After one phone call, I knew that I was in good hands. I never once worried about my vendors, my decor, or anything else! I was able to be completely present at my wedding. What a gift that is!
    Molly, Bride
