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!
