Chanel and Micheal had been planning their wedding for a few years when the big day finally arrived and they were so happy to finally just be married!!!! I met Chanel and Mike after they had already picked out the Woods Chapel and the Lafayette Club and I had a lot of fun combining their personal style with the venues to create a very unique,elegant and botanical wedding!! Chanel and Mike love the outdoors and we wanted to bring that style into the classic venue of the Lafayette Club!
Succulents, candleabras and Table Numbers die cut into the shape of MN tied everything together perfectly!

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!!!

This is a really fun post for me to write!! I LOVE Emily and Brian (I love all of my couples!!) and I love their family! I truly feel like I was welcomed into the family with open arms, and that is one of my favorite parts of my job! I remember the first time that I met Emily, Brian and Emily’s family – It was in the middle of winter and we were standing in their living room pointing out in the backyard to where the tent would go (and having to use a lot of imagination) and starting our vision!!
Emily’s parents have a wonderful home in Deephaven, and that was the backdrop for their nautical themed wedding day! There were so many fun elements that were brought into the design…. Lots of rope, sailboats as place cards, lanterns, a program chalkboard… and I could go on and on… After the ceremony the wedding party all got onto a boat for a perfect send off! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your planning process, your wedding day and most of all.. Your Family!!!!

Take a tip from Christian Dior on your Something Blue… What a fun Dress!!!

When I met Sara Jo and Paul over a year before their June 26th, 2010 wedding I knew that we had a connection. They had such an infectious energy and such a positive attitude I was so exited to help them in their journey. We started to plan a Duluth Wedding because of their love for the north shore. After a few weeks of hunting it was clear that we were not going to find a venue that they loved. So we shifted out direction back to planning their dream wedding in the Minneapolis area. Not only was I able to spend a lot of time with Sara-Jo and Paul, but Sara-Jo’s wonderful mother was involved as well. I love NOTHING more than the relationships I form with my clients and their parents…. It becomes such a wonderful experience and I always feel like I am part of the family by the end of the planning process!!
Sara-Jo and Paul.. I hope you are enjoying married life! I feel like I have life long friends in both of you and I know that your love will stand the test of time. You are truly soulmates and I felt so loved just being able to share this process and your day with you!!!

Beverly and Joe called me about a year ago from Texas. They were living there, but going to move to MN this past June. So the majority of the planning was done via email and there few trips up North. We had so much fun and it was great to have them actually in the state. It was fun to host a destination wedding for about 75% of the weddings guests… Beverly and Joe were only here in MN so that Joe could attend Dental School, so most of the guests were from all over the country!
It was wonderful to help them plan their intimate wedding as well as learn more about the different cultural traditions such as the Korean Ceremony that took place at the reception.
I hope that you both have a wonderful time during your stay in Minnesota and Thanks for including me in your celebration and planning!
