Anjali and Benjamin’s wedding took place on a beautiful July day at the Semple Mansion in Minneapolis! The day was full of love, tradition and stunning decor!! I first met Anjali right after she booked Semple Mansion for her wedding and she needed help planning the rest of the event because she lived in Chicago and was busy going to Medical School… all while Benjamin was in Wisconsin also going to school.. so their planning trips back to town were not only a time for them to meet with me.. but also a time for them to get to see each other!!!

It was so much fun getting to know both of you and getting to be a part of your special day!!! Wishing you lots of love and happiness.. and good luck on your upcoming tests 🙂

Annie and Michael- There is SO much to love about this wedding! AMAZING Floral, a Bride in one of the prettiest dresses ever, heartfelt vows and of course Lyla, their Frenchie!!! I met Annie’s mom Donna last summer when I was working a wedding on Bay Lake and she was doing the floral. I was in awe of how beautiful her floral was and I instantly fell in love with Donna!! When we were done setting up she told me that her daughter was getting married at the Semple Mansion next summer and then she asked if I was available to help.. I was so excited that the date was still open and that I could be of assistance on the big day!!!

When Donna and Annie hired me I knew that the decor was going to be amazing because Donna was doing the floral, but I really had no idea that it was going to look as great as it did! The bright colors really complimented the Semple Mansion and Annie’s eclectic California style was brought to life in the stationary, the “seed packet” escort cards and in the floral. Annie has an infectious smile and as you can tell from these fantastic photos from Laura Ivanova I don’t think Annie will ever stop smiling at Michael!!

Ohhhh.. I am SO lucky!! As you can tell by this blog post, I have had a VERY good summer and I have been surrounded by amazing clients (and friends!!!) I first met with Jessica and Peter last July at a Minnetonka Caribou.. Instantly we clicked and I was So excited to start working with them!! Jessica and Peter truly trusted me with their wedding while we planned the beautiful celebration with the couple in Chicago. With the help of an amazing team of vendors their August wedding was perfect! A champagne bar, late night popcorn bar, endless white roses and 200 of their closest friends and family made for a perfect occasion.

Extra special thank you to Betsy Wall Photography for the stunning images!
