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!!!!

Lafayette Club Wedding | Clare and Trent | Lake Minnetonka

I am not sure if it is the mutual love of the lake or the fact that we are both blonde and like to talk (a lot) But from the minute I met Clare and her parents I instantly fell in love with them and I knew that the next few months planning their wedding would be a lot of fun!! Clare and Trent had been in numerous weddings while their wedding and I think that gave them a lot of ideas and direction on what vendors they liked and what decor they wanted to incorporate.

I have a lot of “favorite” parts of this wedding, but I am especially fond of the beautiful stationery products. Because the wedding venues were surrounded by Lake Minnetonka we chose to do an illustration of the lake, the Lafayette Club and the church. The illustration that was done by Cait Courneya and Paper Rock Scissors and it set the perfect tone for this wedding!

Love you lots Clare and Trent!

Loews Minneapolis Wedding – Maggie and Troy

Kicking off Christmas week with a beautiful August wedding that I was lucky enough to help coordinate with Maggie and Troy. Maggie contacted me around 18 months before her wedding and I was amazed that when she hired me she already hired quite a few of her vendors.. she was very organized and during the planning process I realized why. Troy plays in the NHL and Maggie and Troy are constantly traveling for games and they were so smart to get so much done early…so that when they were home the few times during the year we could nail down all of the other pieces!!! A great group of vendors and a wonderful and trusting couple turned into a beautiful wedding at the classic Basilica of St. Mary and the newly renovated Loews Hotel!!

Merry Christmas Maggie and Troy! I hope that you have a good and relaxing first Christmas as a Mr. and Mrs!!
