Instagram Roundup

We have such a fun time planning and coordinating on the day of the weddings that sometimes my blogging and sharing images gets a little delayed! Luckily if you follow us on Facebook and Instagram I try and post a few sneak peak pictures and photos of the progress throughout the day…Welcome to the Instagram Roundup… This is my attempt to share with you my photos from the day (my very amateur.. iPhone photos of the day.. ) until I blog the wedding when I get the photos from the photographer!!

We had a great weekend with the Nicollet Island Pavillion Wedding of Amy and Jake and the wedding of Gretchen and Chris at Windows on Minnesota! Such a great way to kick off the year!!!

Enjoy!!

Erin and Mike – Calhoun Beach Club Wedding

Is it ever going to get nice here in Minnesota? I sure hope so!!!! But until then, I will continue to blog about weddings that remind me of warmth and better Minnesota weather!!! Here is a beautiful wedding photographed by LaVie Photography from last fall!!
It was so much fun to get to work with Erin, Mike and their families! They were really sweet and Erin really knew what she wanted when it came to incorporating details about her and Mike’s relationship. I don’t think that it is more apparent then in the cake… designed by the always amazing Robin at Gatueax.. the cake was a reflection of Erin and Mike’s study abroad in Australia. It was full of details about their trip and it was the focal point of the cocktail hour!!!

Vintage Pink Minnesota Wedding

What a fun post to write for me!!! I met Amanda and Josh MANY years ago when I planned Josh’s Sister, Shelby’s wedding. It was apparent even back then that Amanda and Josh were something really special, so I was ecstatic when Shelby and her mom Deb called me and asked if I could help plan Amanda and Josh’s big day!!!!
They were engaged over Halloween and we planned a Valentine’s day weekend wedding and no detail was overlooked!!!!

Thank you to the team of vendors that pulled off this touching and beautiful wedding in such a short period of time!! And an EXTRA special Thank you to Despres Photography for not only capturing the day so wonderfully but for also being a great new resource for brides in the central Minnesota Area (seriously.. if you are getting married, call them!!!)

Melissa and Brian – Town and Country Club Wedding

Melissa and Brian were another one of my “Dream Couples” (Can you tell that I have a lot of couples that I fall in love with… that is why I have the best job in the world!!) They knew exactly what they wanted and they were so trusting to me from the beginning and I think that it created a very fun and personalized wedding!!! One of my favorite trends of the year have been incorporating patterns as a “theme” for a wedding.. and I think this is a great example of how a subtle pattern can really tie together the whole look of the wedding without have TOO Much Theme!!

Megan and Jeff at Lafeyette Club

I am blogging weddings that we did at the beginning of the season and it feels like it was just yesterday!!! I had the pleasure of working with Megan and Jeff on their Lafeyette club wedding last April. Megan and Jeff had such a fun sense of humor and we had so much fun planning their big day in 9 months!!
We had the pleasure of working at one of my favorite venues, the Lafeyette Club!! I live really close to the club and I love the area, the history of the club and the amazing wedding coordinator Brenda!!!!

Minnesota Art Museum Wedding

Let me apologize for the overload of photos on this blog post! When you have a great photographer, a wonderful couple and a really FUN Design you tend to have a lot of photos that you love!!

Erica and Ben were married on September 1st at the newly remodeled Weisman Museum. The wedding for about 100 guests consisted mainly of out of town guests; so it was not only a fun weekend of events, it was nice to get to showcase some of Minnesota’s finest locations (and skylines!!) Erica and Ben served a completely vegan menu that was prepared perfectly by Damico Catering and the vegan wedding cake prepared by Cakes by Jan. We had a lot of personal touches including “Jigger” favors with Erica and Ben’s favorite Margarita recipe attached, wines specially selected and shipped in by the bride’s parents who live in California and a stationary design that “branded the wedding”.

Thank you Erica and Ben for making me apart of your planning process!!!

Rebecca and Marc

Rebecca and Marc were married on May 5th in a Classic wedding ceremony and reception! They both live in New York and with the help of the mother of the bride the event was planned from a distance! We tried to incorporate little hints of New York.. including the bride and groom walking down the stairs to “New York, New York”!
I hope that both of you are enjoying the holiday season!!

Lindsay and Toby

This blog post seems VERY appropriate now that the weather is starting to get chilly!!! I was lucky enough to help Lindsay and Toby with their January wedding and it was chilly outside and warm and cozy inside the Landmark Center!! Andrew Vick of course did a fantastic job capturing the moments of the day (complete with the groomsmen playing baseball) and Jackie from Just Bloomed warmed up the white and sparkly decor inside the venue!!! Lindsay and Toby not only were fantastic to work with but it was fun getting to know their loving families throughout the process!!!!

Happy (Just About) Anniversary Toby and Lindsay! I hope that your first year has been as wonderful as your wedding!!!

Depot Minneapolis Wedding- Lauren and Erik

This time of year we are winding down with coordinating weddings and ramping up on planning weddings!! Its the time of year where I love to see new ideas come together and my favorite part of my job is getting inside the couples head and really trying to personalize their wedding for them. I always say “I don’t want to be just another “pretty” Wedding.. I want this to be reflective of the client, their personalities and their vision!! Take Lauren and Eric for example, they are both wheat traders, Erik grew up on a farm and he gave Lauren a cow as a gift for the engagement.. so as you can see this “theme” fit their personalities perfectly!!
It was so much fun getting to plan Lauren and Erik’s wedding and seeing their vision come to life!!! This makes me so excited for the next few weeks of Lots and Lots of Decor meetings!
