Contagious… That is what I think of when I think of Meghan, AJ and the whole McNamara Family.. That may seem like a funny word to think of, but when you look at these photos how can you not smile? The love and the infectious smiles are so contagious when you meet this wonderful couple and family!!!!!

The first time I met with Meghan and her wonderful mom, Amy.. We talked.. and talked.. and talked about life, the engagement and about the wedding. It became clear after that meeting that I met two people that have as much energy as me and can talk as much as I can 🙂 I felt an immediate connection with them and throughout the whole planning process we just had a lot of fun!! I loved that Meghan had such a clear idea of what she wanted for her wedding day.. but at the same time.. she went along with lots of my crazy ideas!!  Thank you for trusting me and seeing the vision in my little sketches I would send you.. Blondes must think alike 🙂

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

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!!!
