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!

The Machine Shop | Katie and Joe | Minneapolis, MN Wedding Planner|

2017 seems to be the year of the winter wedding for us at Lasting Impressions!! With everyone around me now saying “Are you ready for busy season” I keep thinking… When was it slow season!  We loved all of our winter weddings this year and thank god, the weather cooperated with us with very little snow and travel problems!!  Katie and Joe were married on January 14th and I have been so excited to post this wedding!! Not only did I love working with Katie and Joe (and Katie’s fabulous mom Patty!!) But It is the first wedding we have coordinated at the much anticipated Machine Shop in Minneapolis!!

The Machine Shop came along at the perfect time for Katie and Joe! They were engaged in April  knew they did not want a long engagement, so we were looking at a late fall/early Winter Wedding and we also needed to find a venue that would  hold 400-500 guests!! Thankfully the Machine Shop was just entering its final stages of construction and we were able to take a “hard hat” tour of the space. Hard hat tours are not always the easiest for clients to “envision” the finished look of the space, but Katie and Joe loved what they were seeing and loved that it was something different and they had not already been to numerous events at the space!!

Now when it came to designing the space, It really was a fun challenge for me to work on the logistics with the wonderful Machine Shop Staff, Apres Party Rental, Rudy’s Rentals, Arts and Flowers and of course the stylish bride and her mother!! The goal of the design was to warm up the industrial space with lots of candles, chandler’s, wood farm tables and classic white and green floral.

The vendors on this wedding did a fantastic job and I am so thankful for each and every one of them!!! If all winter weddings could be this fun.. I would not even mind the long Minnesota Winters!!

Bar Lurcat Wedding – Anna and Henry

As the summer starts to draw to an end (How did that happen!!) I realize that I have not blogged much at all.  I still have some beautiful weddings from last summer to get on the blog and Anna and Henry’s wedding is one of them (and it is their anniversary in a few days!!!) YAY!!!

Anna called me about 2 months before their big day and I was explaining to her that I was already pretty full for the year and I was not sure if I was going to take on any more weddings. However, since hers was on a Friday and she had some amazing vendors I felt the need to talk to her more about it. And I instantly knew when I spoke to her that I wanted to work with her and help pull together her final details for her VERY well planned wedding!!

I loved her perspective on what a wedding should be.. she wanted this day to be able to celebrate with friends and family and she did not really care about a lot of extra “fluff”! They picked Cafe Lurcat for their wedding reception because Henry owns a restaurant and they always knew they wanted a more intimate feel vs. a standard hotel ballroom or reception space. When they picked Lurcat they knew that they would not have to do a lot of decorating or design since all of it was already so beautiful!! So Anna and Henry stuck to the elements they cared the most about.. they wanted good entertainment and good food.. and THEY had it.. and the wedding was filled with so much laughter (and lots of martinis 🙂

Lafayette Club Wedding- Megan and Tommy

Megan and Tommy’s wedding is near and dear to my heart.. not only did I love getting to know Megan, Tommy and Pam (the amazing mother of the bride that was VERY Organized!!) But Megan’s parents are from my same hometown.. and considering that is a town of 4,000 people.. that does not happen everyday that you run into someone from that area!!!

Megan and Tommy were married on a beautiful August day at Lafayette Club in Minnetonka! They were one of the first ceremonies that was held in the clubs new ceremony location (so excited to be able to host outdoor ceremonies there!!) Tommy’s background in architecture made him a big part of the decor planning process and he personally designed the save the dates, invitations and the design that we used on the head table linen!! We wanted to create a clean/modern design in a very classic venue with bright summer colors!!! Megan and her mother worked side by side with me planning the rest of the details of the big day that was complete with a boat cruise for the wedding party right after the ceremony, lots of wonderful live musicians and LOTS of great food from Lafayette Club and Cocoa and Fig!!!

Congratulations Megan and Tommy… Here is to a lifetime of Happiness!!
