Aria Minneapolis Wedding | Sue and Tommy

Aria Minneapolis Wedding

Sue and Tommy.. What a fun couple!! Looking back on these photos makes me yearn for sunshine and a good, fun party like Sue and Tommy had last August at Aria!

This was the first wedding in a long time for both Sue and Tommy’s families and they really wanted to throw one elegant, fun and unique wedding for all of their guests… and they succeeded! The ceremony took place at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis; Adorable flower girls processed down the aisle before Sue (who looked STUNNING in her L’atelier Bridal Gown) met Tommy at the end of the aisle. The traditional and formal wedding ceremony ended with a large group photos on the steps of the Basilica; A tradition at the church. Following the ceremony guests were greeted at Aria with signature cocktails, delicious appetizers and a fun Friday night evening!

The reception decor was a true reflection of Sue and Tommy. We wanted to combine a lot of classic and timeless elements with a clean and modern wedding design. With a floorplan set for 350 guests and a big band, we moved around tables numerous times to get the configuration “just right”. I am a big fan of chandeliers and I believe we can never have too many… and Sue agreed with me! This was the most chandeliers I had hung at Aria and It created a beautiful glow throughout the evening. Following an AMAZING dance party the guests said goodbye to the newlywed’s with a sparkler send off!!

Thank you to all of the vendors that assisted with this wonderful wedding!

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!!
