Nicollet Island Pavilion Wedding – Margit and Marty

Planning a wedding from a distance is never an easy task.. but with Marty and Margit everything seemed so relaxed and easy.. they really trusted all of their vendors and it resulted in a beautifully planned and relaxing wedding day full of so much love and joy!! Marty and Margit live in Colorado and have a love of the outdoors… so while we wanted to plan a really formal wedding, we wanted to make sure and include a lot of details that incorporated their love of canoeing, skiing and their heritage!! Food is always a great place to personalize your event.. Marty grew up on the East Coast..so a Raw bar made perfect sense (in a canoe.. of course!!), Margit had a love if Izzy’s ice-cream ever since she was little.. so we incorporated that into our late night snacks and serving the Norwegian wedding cake, kransekake paid homage to Margit’s heritage!!

Margit and Marty.. I loved getting to work with you.. and I hope that you are getting excited for the snow to fly so you can start your first skiing season.. married 🙂

Nicollet Island Pavillion Wedding – Katie and Ethan

You will notice a few different things when you look at the Katie and Ethan’s wedding photos that I chose for the blog… There are a ton of them in black and white.. and the bride and groom are always kissing! Katie and Ethan were just such a lovely, classic bride and groom that adored each other!! I first met Katie when she was a bridesmaid in Kaley and Matt’s wedding! There is nothing better for me then when I get to coordinate a wedding for a couple that has seen me in action! There is no better compliment then someone recognizing that they need your services and they want you to be a part of their big day! And that is just what happened with Katie and Ethan! They live out in Washington DC and this whole wedding came together with a few quick trips back to Minneapolis and Numerous ( and I mean numerous) emails locking down all of the details! Lauren Kirkbride Photography captured the beauty of the Nicollet Island Pavillion, the Basilica of St. Mary and the bride and groom perfectly! It was a classic wedding with a vintage twist!! Merry First Christmas as a married couple Katie and Ethan!!

Ally and Joe – Nicollet Island Pavillion Wedding

When I think of Ally and Joe I think of LOVE.. The kind of love that you know will last a lifetime and many miles. When I first met Ally she was attending Harvard for her Masters Degree all while trying to plan a wedding back home in Minnesota. Joe and Ally had spent lots of time apart while Joe was in Graduate school in Chicago and now when Ally had moved out East for school. Everytime they were together you could just tell they loved to spend time together! Thank god for Ally’s wonderful Mother Mary Kay who not only attended all of our meetings together but was a huge part of our planning team for over a year! Ally is so smart (obviously HARVARD Smart) and she was very detailed in what she wanted her wedding to look like! Joe lived in Minnesota and was a big part of our planning process as well! Every time that Ally came home we headed out to tackle her wedding meetings and they never seemed like work.. I really loved hanging out with Ally and Mary Kay and I felt like I was part of the family!!

Joe is Mexican and it was very important to incorporate his culture into the wedding. The whole design started with the invitations that Ally found online… a beautiful laser cut design that mimicked the design on traditional Mexican Papel Picado’s. This was a look that we brought into numerous pieces of the stationary as well as custom Papel Picado’s that were designed with Ally and Joe’s names and wedding date.  Bright colors filled Nicollet Island Pavillion and centerpieces varied from Mexican lanterns with candles, large purple and orange floral arrangements and Mexican cans filled with succulents. We incorporated Mexican hand painted tiles on vases at the reception and as table numbers. A Marachi Band set the tone of the cocktail hour while guests drank signature drinks, snacked on “tacones” and took in the sites of the beautiful Nicollet Island Pavillion

Ally and Joe had their favorite Chicago band come to Minneapolis for the reception and they were amazing!!! The night ended with a breakfast burrito bar!! Thank you to Ally and Joe (and Mary Kay) for involving me in such a fun year of planning!! Here is to many more adventures to you both!!

Also, make sure you check out their wedding video
