Minneapolis Machine Shop Summer Wedding | Jamie and Sam

This past summer we have had the pleasure of being at the new Venue in Minneapolis, The  Machine Shop a few different times and we love how the venue transforms for each couples vision and style. Jamie and Sam planned their wedding while leaving on the East Coast and traveling a lot for work… not only is that a lot to take on, but Jamie was the DIY queen. She not only bought all of her own linens, made all of her own stationery, her mom even sewed all 300 of the pink napkins so that they could be the perfect shade of pink!!!
I had a lot of fun getting to know Jamie, Sam and both of their families! They not only planned a wonderful wedding, but they also planned numerous days of lake activities to let their guests take advantage of the beautiful Minnesota Summer!!!

Minneapolis Machine Shop Wedding | Ashley and Dave

Ashley and Dave were married in August at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis! The venue was perfect for this New York couple looking for something more unique for their ceremony and reception! It was very convinent that Ashley’s parents also do live across the street from the Machine Shop!!!

Since Ashley and Dave live in New York we planned most of this wedding over emails, phone calls and two big planning trips into town!! When it came time to plan decor, we knew we wanted to bring in some colorful floral and the best way to do that seemed to be suspending it over the ceremony and reception site. Thank you to Munster Rose for not only going along with this labor intensive task of hanging floral… but for also spending hours and hours working on building structures, testing logistics and creating a plan to move the floral in an hour for a room flip!!!  Thank you to all of the vendors that made this day come together!!

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!!
