Loring Social Wedding | Megan and Drew

Megan and Drew ….Where do I start, I absolutely loved helping them plan their wedding!!!! First of all, look at their smiles that go EAR to EAR and you can tell that their wedding day was just one step in their adventure together!

They began planning last fall, a few moments after they were engaged! Luckily for me, I had already met Megan when I planned her cousin’s wedding years earlier and I was ecstatic to get the call from Megan to see if I was available!   Lauren and Megan were some of the most organized and stylish brides I have ever worked with, and the similarities I saw in each of them made the process so much fun!

Not only did I love that Megan was SO organized . But I also adored the way that her and Drew looked at each other and worked with each other in the planning of the wedding. They really wanted a wedding-focused around their love and the love of all of their friends and family! Additionally, they had both been in a lot of weddings, so when we were trying to find a venue for their reception we quickly narrowed down the options. Luckily for us, Loring Social had just started to book weddings for the summer and fall of 2017 and we knew immediately it would be a great fit for the wedding they were envisioning.

Loring Social’s decor is very clean and modern, so we decided to use long tables to maximize our guest count and use pops of bright colors to warm up the space. Geometric shapes played a big part of the stationery design and we wanted to include that look and feel in the centerpieces as well. The look worked great with the modern space.  There were also numerous personal touches to the wedding. Megan and her bridesmaids got ready at her grandmother’s home, which was a tradition in the family. Megan and Drew left the church in Megan’s Grandparents classic car.  And Cookies and Milk Boxes were delivered to the tables for dessert… a personal favorite of the grooms!

Congratulations Megan and Drew… Working with you was such a JOY!!

Aria Wedding Venue | Ashley and Seth | Minneapolis

Ashley and Seth’s wedding day was filled with family, friends and Lots of Beautiful and classic decor!! The couple planned their wedding from North Dakota with a few trips back to Minneapolis to finalize plans with vendors. From the minute I met Ashley I knew that I really had a good understanding of the style of wedding she wanted and the classic look and feel she was hoping to achieve!

Ashley may have been an only child.. but it was VERY clear that including her friends, family and cousins in her wedding was really important to her. She had a heart of gold and always put everyone else feelings ahead of her own during the whole planning process and the wedding was perfect with 6 bridesmaids, 4 junior bridesmaids, 2 personal attendants, 4 usherettes and 1 flower girl! We had a lot of girl power and beautiful women involved in the big day!!!

Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events and Apres out did themselves transforming Aria for close to 400 guests (a feat that we did a few times in 2017!!). Ashley and Seth’s stationery by Paper Rock Scissors was classic gold foil and letterpress and reflected the overall look perfectly!

It was a beautiful day and I am so happy that we have these beautiful images by Jaimee Morse to remember all of the beauty!!

Minneapolis Machine Shop Wedding | Ashley and Dave

Ashley and Dave were married in August at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis! The venue was perfect for this New York couple looking for something more unique for their ceremony and reception! It was very convinent that Ashley’s parents also do live across the street from the Machine Shop!!!

Since Ashley and Dave live in New York we planned most of this wedding over emails, phone calls and two big planning trips into town!! When it came time to plan decor, we knew we wanted to bring in some colorful floral and the best way to do that seemed to be suspending it over the ceremony and reception site. Thank you to Munster Rose for not only going along with this labor intensive task of hanging floral… but for also spending hours and hours working on building structures, testing logistics and creating a plan to move the floral in an hour for a room flip!!!  Thank you to all of the vendors that made this day come together!!

JX Event Venue Wedding | Dana and Brandon

Bright, Beautiful and SO Summery… Just looking at Dana and Brandon’s Wedding photos makes me want to go back to this PERFECT June Day in Stillwater!! I am the type of person that is a little intimidated with color. I tend to live in a pewter world; but when it is peony season I can COMPLETELY get behind lots of bold and bright colors and it was SO much fun to get to help Dana and Brandon design and plan their big day!!!

When we toured JX Event Venue it was still a construction site, but we knew from the minute we walked in that it was perfect for the fun and festive feel that Dana and Brandon wanted for their big day.  Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events spent at least NINE long hours hanging floral pieces and designs from all of the exposed beams to add a whimsy element to an already lovely space!! The staff at JX Event Venue was unbelievable! I am so happy that we have a few more weddings booked there next year!

I have had the pleasure of knowing the wonderful CLARK family for years and I am so honored to plan all 3 of their daughters weddings! They are a FUN family that not only has great style, but they really trust all of their vendors to make their vision come together!  There are plenty of times that I am describing “fun ideas” and I realize that clients have no idea what I am envisioning, until they see it on their wedding day and luckily for me.. they are always very happy with the finished product!!!  Thank you for always trusting me and for letting me be apart of your family!! XOXOX
