When I look at photos of Christine and Mike’s Wedding day.. all I can think of is Fun!! From the beginning of the planning all the way to the minute I left the dance.. the wedding and planning was so much fun and full of energy!! Christine and Mike picked Aria for their wedding venue and it was such a perfect spot for this fun couple that loved Music and Minneapolis!! They wanted the day to be easy for their guests and to serve good food, good drinks and have lots of good music.. and that is just what we got when we hired Casablanca Orchestra, Instant Request and Damico Catering.. It was a none stop party celebrating this lovely couple!!!

When I think of Jason and Amanda I think about our meetings where I was just about rolling on the floor laughing throughout the whole meeting!! Jason is hilarious and I loved to watch the interaction between he and Amanda. He was always very involved and passionate in his thoughts and opinions and luckily for him.. Amanda was on the same page as him! They wanted something fun and different and that is just what we did!! I had the challenge of making a formal wedding not feel like a stuffy wedding.. and it all started when they decide to serve burgers as their main entree.. The idea came to them when they saw numerous high end restaurants serving delicious burgers on their menus and they thought that would be a fun spin on traditional wedding food… and it was! This has to be one of my favorite meals at a wedding in a long time… Its pretty hard to beat a Juicy Damico Burger decorated with a cute burger pick and a side of nice wine!! Congratulations Jason and Amanda.. I miss our meetings and the big belly laughs that came with them!!

Planning a wedding from out of state is never an easy task.. and I guess that is why I have a JOB!! But with the help of Colleen (the wonderful mother of the bride!!) We were able to assist Nicole and Will with planning their dream wedding all while living in Michigan and only getting to come home for one planning meeting! We spent many hours face timing Nicole to ask her opinion and trying to explain things over email and what came together was a memorable night for everyone!!!

Eleven Bridesmaids and Groomsmen combined with 300 guests, food stations and dueling pianos really put the logistics of the wedding to the test.. but with the help of all of our GREAT vendors Nicole and Will’s wedding was fun, unique and a great celebration with all of their friends and family!!! Congratulations Nicole and Will!!
