The Depot Minneapolis Wedding – Krystal and Mitch

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great end of the year! I know that I have had a fantastic year and I thought a good way to end the year on the blog would be with one of our first 2013 weddings.. Krystal and Mitch!! I had the pleasure of working with Krystal and Mitch for a year and a half as they planned their wedding from Arizona. Not only did I love working with them but I became really close their family as well! Krystal and Mitch came to town about 3 times before their wedding and we had big “planning days” and on each of these days I had the pleasure of seeing Krystals Parents along with one of my favorite puppies… Mitzy at all of our meetings! Krystal and Mitch’s wedding was a perfect mix of raw emotion and lots of LOVE! Mitch is a professional golfer from Canada and so it only seemed fitting to bring in some Candian flare with our maple leaf cookie cutters and Minnesota Cookies cutters on tied to the placecards! We incorporated a lot of natural green elements into the decor that was perfect for Spring! Happy New Year Krystal and Mitch.. I am always thinking of you (especially when it is -30 in Minnesota!!)

Whitney and Tyler – Depot Minneapolis Wedding

Whitney and Tyler make me so thankful for referrals! Megan and Ben were one of my couples from 2009… WOW, that is a long time ago… and since then, they have referred SO many clients to me!! I was joking with them that I should be buying them something REALLY nice for a gift because not only are they a great referral point, but I get to see them at a lot of weddings per year.. and that makes me so excited!!

I knew from the moment that Whitney contacted me and told me that I had coordinated her friends wedding that she was so sweet and that I WANTED THIS WEDDING!! When I meet a couple that I have to work with I get really emotional and I have to find a way to make it work!! Luckily for me Whitney and Tyler did hire me for their planner and I got to spend the next 16 months working along side Whitney and her mother Ellen and Tyler and his mother Judy! It was very much a team wedding planning effort and I could not have been happier to be apart of the planning and the big wedding day!!!!

This “fusion” wedding incorporated Jewish traditions as well as elements of a traditional Lutheran Wedding! We transformed the entire Depot for their ceremony and reception using the Great Hall for the ceremony and transforming the “rink” area for the cocktail hour and dinner! I describe the color scheme as a joyful fall theme! We mixed classic colors in the linens and chairs with some pops of vibrant fall colors in the flowers! The room reveal is always my favorite part of a night and it was so much fun getting to sneak in Whitney, Tyler and the mother’s to show them how this canvas was transformed!

Thank you for trusting me with your big day- I will always treasure working with you!!
