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!!

Where do I start with Bridget and Jimmy? First off, I knew from the moment that I met them that they had an incredible bond, friendship and love…. and that is one of my favorite parts of my job.. to be able to continue to witness the love between my couples throughout some of the best days of their lives while planning their wedding!!

When they came to me they had thought they were going to wait until Spring of 2014 to get married, but soon after looking at venues they landed on October 26th, 2013 which meant that we needed to plan the wedding in 10 months. For some clients that would be difficult but when you are as organized and as good at making decisions as Bridget and Jimmy are… it is easy 🙂

They decided on Minikahda Club for their ceremony and reception and I feel like that choice was PERFECT for them. If I could sum up these two in a few words it would be Classic, Elegant and Timeless.. just like the Minikahda Club!

The team of vendors on this wedding were incredible and I owe all of these lovely images to Wing from Canary Grey! She has been friends with Bridget and Jim for a few years and that made her connection to the photos and the day of the wedding even more meaningful!! Congratulations to Bridget and Jim and may you have MANY more years of timeless love!!

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!!

I am so excited to blog this wedding by Red Ribbon Studios! Erin and her mom were so much fun to work with and they had so much style… it was easy and fun to create the look for the wedding date! Now you see chevron everywhere.. but when we were planning this wedding it was not very popular yet… so pairing chevron sequence table clothes with beautiful floral made me SO excited!!

I always thought of Erin’s style as very “Kate Spade” and we were able to merry patterns together to make a fun and a memorable statement! Congratulations to Erin and Casey.. I hope that you are having a wonderful first holiday season married!!!

What a fun day to relive!! Mindy and Ryan are probably two of the sweetest people I have ever met! They are high school sweethearts that are so in love and full of energy, love and NEVER stop smiling 🙂 Family and Friends are a big part of their lives and it was such an honor helping them plan their big day… right along with both of their moms!! I love getting to help pull together my bride’s vision for the day.. and NOTHING brings me more joy on the day of the wedding then seeing her face when she first sees the reception space! Mindy’s face was documented by the wonderful photographer Matt Lien Photography and I will forever be grateful for that moment! Mindy, Tracy, Debbi and Ryan all have impeccable taste as you can tell by the choices in Linens and Floral! Central Lutheran Church provided a beautiful backdrop for the traditional ceremony. Guests then headed to the Calhoun Beach Club for cocktail hour and a fantastic party!! Acrylic Menus, Ice Luge’s, Mirrored signs and lots and lots of blooms by Just Bloomed created a fun atmosphere to celebrate Mindy and Ryan’s Marriage!!

Mindy and Ryan.. I miss talking to you everyday.. I hope that your first few months of being a newlywed have been full of lots and lots of love!!
