I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great end of the year! I know that I have had a fantastic year and I thought a good way to end the year on the blog would be with one of our first 2013 weddings.. Krystal and Mitch!! I had the pleasure of working with Krystal and Mitch for a year and a half as they planned their wedding from Arizona. Not only did I love working with them but I became really close their family as well! Krystal and Mitch came to town about 3 times before their wedding and we had big “planning days” and on each of these days I had the pleasure of seeing Krystals Parents along with one of my favorite puppies… Mitzy at all of our meetings! Krystal and Mitch’s wedding was a perfect mix of raw emotion and lots of LOVE! Mitch is a professional golfer from Canada and so it only seemed fitting to bring in some Candian flare with our maple leaf cookie cutters and Minnesota Cookies cutters on tied to the placecards! We incorporated a lot of natural green elements into the decor that was perfect for Spring! Happy New Year Krystal and Mitch.. I am always thinking of you (especially when it is -30 in Minnesota!!)

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!!

Stephanie and Brandon’s elegant spring wedding took place at Nicollet Island Pavillion!! It was so much fun working with Stephanie and her mom on the details of the wedding!! We combined fun gray overlays from Apres Party and Tent Rental with lush white floral from Sadies Floral. Stephanie had first thought she wanted all yellow flowers for the wedding, but when she began planning she decided she only wanted to have little “pops” of yellow and I think that it works perfectly with her decor choices! Fun stationery was designed by Paperista! My favorite element was the cocktail napkins with song lyrics inscribed on them!

Happy Holidays Stephanie and Brandon! We hope that you have a great First Christmas MARRIED!!!!
