I had met Kelsey a few years ago when she was working at Lafayette Club as a server. When she emailed me to tell me that she wanted to hire us for her big day… She told me that she remembered the wedding we had coordinated at the club and how everything went perfectly and she knew that she wanted us their on the big day… What a HUGE compliment!!!! Kelsey’s attention to detail while planning the wedding was shown through all of her beautiful decor and thoughtful little details. Arts and Flowers did a FANTASTIC job with all of the blush and white florals!!

Kelsey and Tyler It was such a joy to get to work with you and your families on such a beautiful and fun day!!!!

2017 seems to be the year of the winter wedding for us at Lasting Impressions!! With everyone around me now saying “Are you ready for busy season” I keep thinking… When was it slow season!  We loved all of our winter weddings this year and thank god, the weather cooperated with us with very little snow and travel problems!!  Katie and Joe were married on January 14th and I have been so excited to post this wedding!! Not only did I love working with Katie and Joe (and Katie’s fabulous mom Patty!!) But It is the first wedding we have coordinated at the much anticipated Machine Shop in Minneapolis!!

The Machine Shop came along at the perfect time for Katie and Joe! They were engaged in April  knew they did not want a long engagement, so we were looking at a late fall/early Winter Wedding and we also needed to find a venue that would  hold 400-500 guests!! Thankfully the Machine Shop was just entering its final stages of construction and we were able to take a “hard hat” tour of the space. Hard hat tours are not always the easiest for clients to “envision” the finished look of the space, but Katie and Joe loved what they were seeing and loved that it was something different and they had not already been to numerous events at the space!!

Now when it came to designing the space, It really was a fun challenge for me to work on the logistics with the wonderful Machine Shop Staff, Apres Party Rental, Rudy’s Rentals, Arts and Flowers and of course the stylish bride and her mother!! The goal of the design was to warm up the industrial space with lots of candles, chandler’s, wood farm tables and classic white and green floral.

The vendors on this wedding did a fantastic job and I am so thankful for each and every one of them!!! If all winter weddings could be this fun.. I would not even mind the long Minnesota Winters!!

People often ask me “What types of wedding clients do you attract and get to work with?” I would say that our “typical” clients have changed quite a bit over the last 10 1/2 years in business.. but the one thing that remains the same year after year Is that we do get to help a lot of clients that are planning long distance. This year alone 60% of my clients live out of Minnesota and honestly.. I love assisting and making the planning process easier for these clients. Karley and Brock are one of those clients and we were lucky enough to get to help them with their wonderful Lake of the Isles Church and Interlachen Country Club wedding  on July 30th, 2016!

When Karley and Brock called me they had just booked Interlachen Country Club and were headed off to New York for Brock’s 2016 Hockey Season.. so they knew that they would not have a lot of time to plan and come home to hire vendors. As you can tell below.. we were able to bring on a group of wonderful vendors to pull Karley and Brock’s visions together and to make sure that when they did get very limited time at home that we utilized it with wonderful meetings and efficient decision making!!!  Congratulations again Karley and Brock.. and we will be cheering you on Brock for another great hockey season!!
