Aria Minneapolis Wedding | Rachel and Billy

When people first hear that I am a wedding planner the first question I normally get is “What is the craziest story that you have?” I understand the interest in all of the “crazy stories” but I wish that instead of asking me about crazy stories people would ask me about why I love my job. One big reason I love my job would be “Families”.

Everyday I get to work with and become part of amazing families and one of my favorite have been the Saunders Family. The whole family is so welcoming, nice, HAPPY, thoughtful and I have enjoyed every email, every call, every meeting that I have had over the years with this tight knit family.

I have had the joy of knowing Rachel’s family for years now, after I assisted with planning Mindy and Ryan’s wedding a few years ago (It feels like yesterday) and when I got the call from Debbie that Rachel was engaged I was so excited!

Rachel and Billy wanted to create a beautiful, fun and classic wedding and we brought on a fantastic team of vendors to help create this vision including Aria, Janelle Elise Photography, Linen Effects,Paper Rock Scissors and Munster Rose!

Rachel and Billy… It was so much fun and from the photo overload you can tell that I have a hard time picking my favorite images (Janelle- You are to blame for that!!) xoxoxo!!

Madden’s on Gull Lake Wedding | Erin and Ross

Like so many other Minnesotan’s “Going Up North” is not just a fun summer vacation, but it is really an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. That is exactly what Erin and Ross’s wedding felt like to me! Even though out of town weddings pose a lot of additional challenges for wedding vendors, I jumped at the chance to be apart of Erin and Ross’s intimate wedding celebration at Madden’s on Gull Lake.

Erin’s family has had a cabin on Gull Lake all of her life and she really wanted to share the love of the lake with all of her guests. Erin and Ross were also traveling for this destination wedding from Texas, so most of our planning was done in marathon planning sessions and lots and lots of emails 🙂

Their wedding day was one of the most beautiful days of the summer and with the help of all of our amazing vendors that traveled many miles to help with this wedding…It was a picture perfect day on the lake!!!!

Minnesota Wedding Coordination | Kelsey and Tyler | Lafayette Club Wedding

I had met Kelsey a few years ago when she was working at Lafayette Club as a server. When she emailed me to tell me that she wanted to hire us for her big day… She told me that she remembered the wedding we had coordinated at the club and how everything went perfectly and she knew that she wanted us their on the big day… What a HUGE compliment!!!! Kelsey’s attention to detail while planning the wedding was shown through all of her beautiful decor and thoughtful little details. Arts and Flowers did a FANTASTIC job with all of the blush and white florals!!

Kelsey and Tyler It was such a joy to get to work with you and your families on such a beautiful and fun day!!!!
