From the minute I spoke to Arah and Doug, I knew that I wanted to be their wedding planner and that we were going to have a lot of fun!!! Most of our planning was done via email because they lived in Nebraska (another reason that I loved them… Go Huskers!!) But even with the distance I felt like I knew exactly what Arah and Doug were trying to achieve with the look of their wedding and the right vendors to make that look and feel come to life!! They choose to get married in January in Minnesota (CRAZY, I know..) but with lots of out of town guests a venue like Windows on Minnesota made perfect sense to not only have a hotel attached to the venue, but also to showcase Minneapolis to all of their guests!!
Arah and Doug always thought about others before themselves and they wanted to make the wedding day a fun party for all of their guests. The gold and black theme was not only elegant, but we also tried to capture some of the New Years Eve excitement and wanted everything to sparkleThe personal touches were everywhere… Charley, the couples puppy was not only part of the wedding ceremony, but we also featured his cute little silhouette on the postage stamps and on small details on the invitation! We welcomed all of the out of town guests with Minnesota Out of town bags featuring all of our favorite MN Treats! Arah and Doug brought a little bit of Nebraska into the mix… Lemon Fresh Day entertained all of the wedding guests well into the night… the band was AMAZING.. and I cant wait to see them again soon!!!
Thank you Arah and Doug for allowing me to help plan your special day and get to know the two of you!! XOXOXO!
