Aria Minneapolis Wedding | Rachel and Billy

When people first hear that I am a wedding planner the first question I normally get is “What is the craziest story that you have?” I understand the interest in all of the “crazy stories” but I wish that instead of asking me about crazy stories people would ask me about why I love my job. One big reason I love my job would be “Families”.

Everyday I get to work with and become part of amazing families and one of my favorite have been the Saunders Family. The whole family is so welcoming, nice, HAPPY, thoughtful and I have enjoyed every email, every call, every meeting that I have had over the years with this tight knit family.

I have had the joy of knowing Rachel’s family for years now, after I assisted with planning Mindy and Ryan’s wedding a few years ago (It feels like yesterday) and when I got the call from Debbie that Rachel was engaged I was so excited!

Rachel and Billy wanted to create a beautiful, fun and classic wedding and we brought on a fantastic team of vendors to help create this vision including Aria, Janelle Elise Photography, Linen Effects,Paper Rock Scissors and Munster Rose!

Rachel and Billy… It was so much fun and from the photo overload you can tell that I have a hard time picking my favorite images (Janelle- You are to blame for that!!) xoxoxo!!

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!

The Machine Shop | Katie and Joe | Minneapolis, MN Wedding Planner|

2017 seems to be the year of the winter wedding for us at Lasting Impressions!! With everyone around me now saying “Are you ready for busy season” I keep thinking… When was it slow season!  We loved all of our winter weddings this year and thank god, the weather cooperated with us with very little snow and travel problems!!  Katie and Joe were married on January 14th and I have been so excited to post this wedding!! Not only did I love working with Katie and Joe (and Katie’s fabulous mom Patty!!) But It is the first wedding we have coordinated at the much anticipated Machine Shop in Minneapolis!!

The Machine Shop came along at the perfect time for Katie and Joe! They were engaged in April  knew they did not want a long engagement, so we were looking at a late fall/early Winter Wedding and we also needed to find a venue that would  hold 400-500 guests!! Thankfully the Machine Shop was just entering its final stages of construction and we were able to take a “hard hat” tour of the space. Hard hat tours are not always the easiest for clients to “envision” the finished look of the space, but Katie and Joe loved what they were seeing and loved that it was something different and they had not already been to numerous events at the space!!

Now when it came to designing the space, It really was a fun challenge for me to work on the logistics with the wonderful Machine Shop Staff, Apres Party Rental, Rudy’s Rentals, Arts and Flowers and of course the stylish bride and her mother!! The goal of the design was to warm up the industrial space with lots of candles, chandler’s, wood farm tables and classic white and green floral.

The vendors on this wedding did a fantastic job and I am so thankful for each and every one of them!!! If all winter weddings could be this fun.. I would not even mind the long Minnesota Winters!!
