Aria Minneapolis Wedding | Rachel and Billy

When people first hear that I am a wedding planner the first question I normally get is “What is the craziest story that you have?” I understand the interest in all of the “crazy stories” but I wish that instead of asking me about crazy stories people would ask me about why I love my job. One big reason I love my job would be “Families”.

Everyday I get to work with and become part of amazing families and one of my favorite have been the Saunders Family. The whole family is so welcoming, nice, HAPPY, thoughtful and I have enjoyed every email, every call, every meeting that I have had over the years with this tight knit family.

I have had the joy of knowing Rachel’s family for years now, after I assisted with planning Mindy and Ryan’s wedding a few years ago (It feels like yesterday) and when I got the call from Debbie that Rachel was engaged I was so excited!

Rachel and Billy wanted to create a beautiful, fun and classic wedding and we brought on a fantastic team of vendors to help create this vision including Aria, Janelle Elise Photography, Linen Effects,Paper Rock Scissors and Munster Rose!

Rachel and Billy… It was so much fun and from the photo overload you can tell that I have a hard time picking my favorite images (Janelle- You are to blame for that!!) xoxoxo!!

Contagious… That is what I think of when I think of Meghan, AJ and the whole McNamara Family.. That may seem like a funny word to think of, but when you look at these photos how can you not smile? The love and the infectious smiles are so contagious when you meet this wonderful couple and family!!!!!

The first time I met with Meghan and her wonderful mom, Amy.. We talked.. and talked.. and talked about life, the engagement and about the wedding. It became clear after that meeting that I met two people that have as much energy as me and can talk as much as I can 🙂 I felt an immediate connection with them and throughout the whole planning process we just had a lot of fun!! I loved that Meghan had such a clear idea of what she wanted for her wedding day.. but at the same time.. she went along with lots of my crazy ideas!!  Thank you for trusting me and seeing the vision in my little sketches I would send you.. Blondes must think alike 🙂
