JJ Hill Wedding and Landmark Center Wedding – Haley and Matt Kalil

Haley and Matt’s Landmark Center Wedding was beautiful, fun and filled with FOOD!!!

I think that most people would think that Matt would have been the mastermind behind ALL OF THE FOOD at the wedding since he is a professional football player.. but spend 10 minutes with Haley and you will realize that behind this beautiful, petite, former Miss Minnesota there is a girl that is passionate about her sweets and taking care of her guests!!

From the beginning of the wedding planning process Haley and Matt wanted to make sure that their guests were treated to a fantastic experience when coming to their wedding. They wanted to showcase some of St.Paul’s best venues including The Saint Paul Hotel, Landmark Center and J Hill Library .

The ceremony and cocktail hour were at JJ Hill Library and then guests made their way over to the stunning Landmark Center where Apres and Avant Decor, Instant Request and Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events transformed the space with draping and 8ft centerpieces to make the space feel cozy and intimate!!

Now lets get to the food!! We started the cocktail hour with FUN and non traditional appetizers including milk and cookies, donut holes, mini burgers and grilled cheese and many more!! After an hour of drinking and indulging on some of the guests favorite snacks guests were welcomed into Landmark Center with a full set up of food stations including a burger station, carving station, chinese and pasta station! And just when guests thought they could not eat anymore.. We served wedding cake from Sweet Retreat, A Candy Bar, A Smores Bar and Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream for late night snack!!!!

As you can tell.. this day was filled with the best vendors in Minnesota and Haley and Matt were the sweetest couple!! I feel very fortunate to have been involved in their picture perfect wedding day!!!

Minnesota Hindu Wedding – Ayesha and Josh

This past August marked Lasting Impressions 10th year in business, I am so lucky and fortunate to do what I love every single day!! My favorite part of weddings continues to be the couples and families I get to work with and the traditions that each culture has for their special day!!! Ayesha and Josh were a special couple… neither one of them ever lived in Minnesota, they just chose Minneapolis as the location for their wedding because we were centrally located and easy to get to for most of the guests coming in from Michigan, New York, Japan and India! What an honor it was to plan an event for guests that were traveling such large distances to come and celebrate!! I love so many things about Hindu Weddings… The traditions, the colors, the clothes and more then anything… the importance of family!! Congratulations Josh and Ayesha.. I hope that New York is treating you well 🙂
