This past August marked Lasting Impressions 10th year in business, I am so lucky and fortunate to do what I love every single day!! My favorite part of weddings continues to be the couples and families I get to work with and the traditions that each culture has for their special day!!! Ayesha and Josh were a special couple… neither one of them ever lived in Minnesota, they just chose Minneapolis as the location for their wedding because we were centrally located and easy to get to for most of the guests coming in from Michigan, New York, Japan and India! What an honor it was to plan an event for guests that were traveling such large distances to come and celebrate!! I love so many things about Hindu Weddings… The traditions, the colors, the clothes and more then anything… the importance of family!! Congratulations Josh and Ayesha.. I hope that New York is treating you well 🙂

If you have been paying attention to our Instagram or Facebook pages you can see that we were really busy this past weekend with a beautiful Lake Minnetonka Wedding!! As a sneek peak the wonderful Janelle Elise Photography sent me some images to share!! It was a beautiful day celebrating this fantastic couple and family!!

A wedding takes a combination of vendors to make it successful.. a backyard tent wedding takes an ARMY of dedicated vendors to make it special… and this one was no exception. I saw Katiee (my Apres Sales Representative) Out at the tent location last week every single one of the 4 days that the tent was getting put up… that is dedication!!

More to come!!


I have been waiting for so long to blog about this wedding… When you combine a completely trusting bride, amazing vendors and a great couple.. Here is what you get… One of the best wedding I have ever been able to plan! Not only were Anna and Chas the nicest people you will ever meet.. but Anna just let me run with all of the crazy ideas that I had swirling in my head (and on my Pinterest Board 🙂 And here is what we got… a wedding that was designed based on a fun floral pattern that we saw online.. and we incorporated that into custom placemats, vases and a FLORAL RUNNER for the head table!! Lemon’s also made quite the tie into the event because Chas’s last name was Lemon.. and I never stopped incorporating that into the design!!!!

Anna and Chas.. I am SO happy for you!! Thank you for allowing me to love my job every single day!! XOXOXOX

Monica and Brendan are not only one of the sweetest couples you could meet.. They also have a great love story!! Monica lives in Central MN (In the Willmar area!) Brendan is from Tennessee and was living in Vegas at the time he met Monica. They were both in California for a friends wedding, happened to meet, hit it off and start a long distance relationship…. Fast forward a few years and Monica was able to get Brendan to move to this frozen tundra we call Minnesota so that they could be together!! If that is not fate and good timing, I am not sure what is!!!
The minute you meet Monica you realize exactly why Brendan would move across the country.. She is so sweet, thoughtful and has the most adorable little girl ever!!!

It was an honor to be apart of their big day and the planning process.. and It was so much fun to get to go to a location that I have never been (I cant wait to go back to Green Lake!!) And help design a wedding that was exactly what they wanted!!!!
Lots of Love Monica and Brendan.. I hope you get to enjoy some sunshine and beaches soon!!!
