Aria Minneapolis Wedding- Nicole and Will

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!!

Windows on Minnesota Wedding- Arah and Doug

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 sparkle 🙂 The 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!

Graves 601 and Nazareth Chapel Wedding – Sara and Rod

It only seems fitting to start the year with this beautiful wedding and end the year with a blog about it!!!! Sara and Rod were married on May 5th at Norwestern College with their reception following at Graves 601 Hotel. It feels like only yesterday we were planning this amazing wedding and this will always be one of my favorite weddings to design!! I loved that Sara never was afraid to take chances with her wedding decor and take a lot of BOLD elements together to become a fun, contempary and festive wedding reception!!!

Hope you are having a great holiday season as Newlyweds Sara and Rod!!!!

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!!!!
