Check out this beautiful wedding we had the pleasure of working on this past Saturday!! Merky and Matt were one of the sweetest couples and being apart of their beautiful Semple Mansion Fall Wedding was such a gift!! Photos by the incredible Janelle Elise Photography!!


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!!

Doug and Raedean not only have a very deep love for each other but they have a wonderful sense of humor!! The first time I met them they had me rolling with Laughter! That kind of laughter will take them through many years of marital bliss!! I was lucky enough to help them on their November wedding. I will never forget their wedding.. not only because they were very special people and it was a beautiful day.. but because it was the day of the crazy ice storm that kept many of their guests and vendors “iced” into the Golden Valley Country Club! The pictures below show was a wonderful day it was and how Doug and Raedean’s little touches were brought into the wedding. My favorite detail and photo of the wedding is the last photo.. Instead of doing a dollar dance they decided to do a “dance off” and this picture only begins to show how fun that was!

Michelle and John’s wedding was not only a fun one for me to plan.. but a personal one too. Michelle is my sister in law (Andy’s Sister). John and her were together for many years before the engagement and we were all very happy to have him “officially” join the family. They were engaged last December while Michelle was doing an internship in Montana… so last Christmas break for her she came back and we looked at reception sites! It was so much fun working with someone so close to me. The day of course was wonderful, we had fantastic weather and everything turned out great. Thanks to my fantastic assistant Meghan I was really able to sit back and enjoy the time with family!

Working With Tiffany and Mark was so much fun! They both had so much energy and were so creative. Tiffany constantly impressed me with her
athletic abilities.. She was a Triathlete and during the time we were planning the wedding she still managed to train for a few races!!
It was a rainy day at Richardson Nature Center… but they did not let that dampen their spirits!

I loved the glow of the candles at Stonebrooke and the Muddy Paws Cheesecake was of course a HIT! Tiffany even surprised mark with an appearance by Goldy The Gopher Himself…. Go Gophers!!
