Madden’s on Gull Lake Wedding | Erin and Ross

Like so many other Minnesotan’s “Going Up North” is not just a fun summer vacation, but it is really an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. That is exactly what Erin and Ross’s wedding felt like to me! Even though out of town weddings pose a lot of additional challenges for wedding vendors, I jumped at the chance to be apart of Erin and Ross’s intimate wedding celebration at Madden’s on Gull Lake.

Erin’s family has had a cabin on Gull Lake all of her life and she really wanted to share the love of the lake with all of her guests. Erin and Ross were also traveling for this destination wedding from Texas, so most of our planning was done in marathon planning sessions and lots and lots of emails 🙂

Their wedding day was one of the most beautiful days of the summer and with the help of all of our amazing vendors that traveled many miles to help with this wedding…It was a picture perfect day on the lake!!!!

Lafayette Club Wedding | Clare and Trent | Lake Minnetonka

I am not sure if it is the mutual love of the lake or the fact that we are both blonde and like to talk (a lot) But from the minute I met Clare and her parents I instantly fell in love with them and I knew that the next few months planning their wedding would be a lot of fun!! Clare and Trent had been in numerous weddings while their wedding and I think that gave them a lot of ideas and direction on what vendors they liked and what decor they wanted to incorporate.

I have a lot of “favorite” parts of this wedding, but I am especially fond of the beautiful stationery products. Because the wedding venues were surrounded by Lake Minnetonka we chose to do an illustration of the lake, the Lafayette Club and the church. The illustration that was done by Cait Courneya and Paper Rock Scissors and it set the perfect tone for this wedding!

Love you lots Clare and Trent!

Minnesota Wedding Planner – Interlachen Country Club- Karley and Brock Nelson

People often ask me “What types of wedding clients do you attract and get to work with?” I would say that our “typical” clients have changed quite a bit over the last 10 1/2 years in business.. but the one thing that remains the same year after year Is that we do get to help a lot of clients that are planning long distance. This year alone 60% of my clients live out of Minnesota and honestly.. I love assisting and making the planning process easier for these clients. Karley and Brock are one of those clients and we were lucky enough to get to help them with their wonderful Lake of the Isles Church and Interlachen Country Club wedding  on July 30th, 2016!

When Karley and Brock called me they had just booked Interlachen Country Club and were headed off to New York for Brock’s 2016 Hockey Season.. so they knew that they would not have a lot of time to plan and come home to hire vendors. As you can tell below.. we were able to bring on a group of wonderful vendors to pull Karley and Brock’s visions together and to make sure that when they did get very limited time at home that we utilized it with wonderful meetings and efficient decision making!!!  Congratulations again Karley and Brock.. and we will be cheering you on Brock for another great hockey season!!
