You will notice a few different things when you look at the Katie and Ethan’s wedding photos that I chose for the blog… There are a ton of them in black and white.. and the bride and groom are always kissing! Katie and Ethan were just such a lovely, classic bride and groom that adored each other!! I first met Katie when she was a bridesmaid in Kaley and Matt’s wedding! There is nothing better for me then when I get to coordinate a wedding for a couple that has seen me in action! There is no better compliment then someone recognizing that they need your services and they want you to be a part of their big day! And that is just what happened with Katie and Ethan! They live out in Washington DC and this whole wedding came together with a few quick trips back to Minneapolis and Numerous ( and I mean numerous) emails locking down all of the details! Lauren Kirkbride Photography captured the beauty of the Nicollet Island Pavillion, the Basilica of St. Mary and the bride and groom perfectly! It was a classic wedding with a vintage twist!! Merry First Christmas as a married couple Katie and Ethan!!

It was a perfect Spring day when Katie and Luke tied the knot at Our Lady of Grace and then partied the night away at The Minikahda Club !!! This was one of the first weddings of the year and it was such a good way to start the year off right!! Katie was very Type A (I love that..and can relate!!) and my goal is that she would not have to think about a thing on the day and she would be able to let go and just enjoy herself.. and I think that it worked 🙂

Beautiful whites and greens accented the new Minikahda Club Wallpaper and decor perfectly and was the perfect way to start off spring!! My favorite part of their wedding was probably the late night snacks from McDonalds.. when I went to pick up 100 cheeseburgers and fries I got lots of strange looks from other McDonalds customers and I received a lot of rave reviews from guests!!

Happy Holidays Katie and Luke! And Thank you to the VERY talented Sewell Photography for these great photos!!!!!

It only seems fitting to start the year with this beautiful wedding and end the year with a blog about it!!!! Sara and Rod were married on May 5th at Norwestern College with their reception following at Graves 601 Hotel. It feels like only yesterday we were planning this amazing wedding and this will always be one of my favorite weddings to design!! I loved that Sara never was afraid to take chances with her wedding decor and take a lot of BOLD elements together to become a fun, contempary and festive wedding reception!!!

Hope you are having a great holiday season as Newlyweds Sara and Rod!!!!
