Melissa and Brian were another one of my “Dream Couples” (Can you tell that I have a lot of couples that I fall in love with… that is why I have the best job in the world!!) They knew exactly what they wanted and they were so trusting to me from the beginning and I think that it created a very fun and personalized wedding!!! One of my favorite trends of the year have been incorporating patterns as a “theme” for a wedding.. and I think this is a great example of how a subtle pattern can really tie together the whole look of the wedding without have TOO Much Theme!!

Let me apologize for the overload of photos on this blog post! When you have a great photographer, a wonderful couple and a really FUN Design you tend to have a lot of photos that you love!!

Erica and Ben were married on September 1st at the newly remodeled Weisman Museum. The wedding for about 100 guests consisted mainly of out of town guests; so it was not only a fun weekend of events, it was nice to get to showcase some of Minnesota’s finest locations (and skylines!!) Erica and Ben served a completely vegan menu that was prepared perfectly by Damico Catering and the vegan wedding cake prepared by Cakes by Jan. We had a lot of personal touches including “Jigger” favors with Erica and Ben’s favorite Margarita recipe attached, wines specially selected and shipped in by the bride’s parents who live in California and a stationary design that “branded the wedding”.

Thank you Erica and Ben for making me apart of your planning process!!!

Carly and Joe’s Wedding is the perfect example of when a Perfect Vision meets the perfect venue and the perfect weather!! When I met with Carly and Joe and heard about their “look” for the day I was so excited! It was straight out of Style Me Pretty and Minnesota Bride!! The bride’s that call us the oct are all looking for the same thing.. a unique location with lots of personal touches and that is JUST what Carly and Joe got on their October wedding date!! I wish I could have been there.. but I was due with my son that week.. so my AMAZING coordinators Andrea and Brooke did a wonderful job and nailed it!!! Thank you for all of the amazing vendors that helped out with this wedding!!<BR>

I was so excited when I got the phone call that Jamie and Tony were getting married, not only because they are a wonderful couple but because I love their family! I was actually planning Jamie’s Sisters wedding when Anne, Jamie’s Mother, called me about helping with two weddings! Anne did a great job of pulling together 2 daughters weddings in 1 year! I was so happy to help and I was very excited for yesterday. I love winter weddings and it is fun to break up the winter with a great big celebration. Jamie and Tony picked McNamara Alumni Center. What a great venue! I had never worked there before and now I can not wait to get back there! Jessica was wonderful to work with and Damico had amazing food like Always! Ruth from Happily Ever After took wonderful photos and I am so excited to see them! In the mean time, take a look at some of my wonderful assistant Andrea’s snapshots of the big day!!

Jamie and Tony, I was honored to work with you.. have a great time in Cancun! Anne and Tony, I could have not asked for a more wonderful experience..Thank you for letting me be a part of both of your daughters lives!

It was a rainy day this past Friday.. but that did not stop Kristen and Alex from having a wonderful wedding! The Holiday Inn-Lakeville looked amazing all lit up with orange uplighting, black branches, orange flowers and tons and tons of candles. This wedding was a lot of fun to plan from the start to the end. I loved the decor (this actually inspired me to turn a room of my house into a damask design!) I had a lot of fun creating the menu cards, table numbers, table runners and every decor piece to really pull it all together! Thanks to Kristen, Alex and Diane (Kristen’s wonderful mom) for letting me help with your big day!!!
And a wonderful thank you and kudos to Graddy Photography for their great photos.. the photos below were taken by us, except the ones that are noted.. they are by Graddy!!
