Kicking off Christmas week with a beautiful August wedding that I was lucky enough to help coordinate with Maggie and Troy. Maggie contacted me around 18 months before her wedding and I was amazed that when she hired me she already hired quite a few of her vendors.. she was very organized and during the planning process I realized why. Troy plays in the NHL and Maggie and Troy are constantly traveling for games and they were so smart to get so much done early…so that when they were home the few times during the year we could nail down all of the other pieces!!! A great group of vendors and a wonderful and trusting couple turned into a beautiful wedding at the classic Basilica of St. Mary and the newly renovated Loews Hotel!!

Merry Christmas Maggie and Troy! I hope that you have a good and relaxing first Christmas as a Mr. and Mrs!!

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!!!!

We had the GREAT pleasure of working with Paige and Nolan on their September 17th wedding! Not only was the wedding amazingly beautiful, held at one of our favorite venues – Graves Hotel, but it was also special because it was the second time we were able to work with the Giblin Family! We helped coordinate Paige’s sister’s wedding in 2008. So needless to say I was over joyed when I got the call from the Mother of the Bride letting me know that her other daughter was getting married!!!! I LOVE pink… and I love that this wedding was blinded out with crystals, feathers, lots of pink roses and a classic wedding touch!!!

Below are some amazing pictures from the always wonderful Jessica from JM Photo.. When I get the rest from her I will make sure and feature them in their own blog post (this wedding is too pretty for just one blog post!!). I LOVE how John Hoel from Vibrant Film really captures not only the day, but the love that Paige and Nolan have for each other!

Colleen and Seth were married on Sunny June 11th. It was a wonderful wedding day and their team of great vendors did a fabulous job! Thank you to all of the vendors for doing an amazing job, especially to Donna at Graves 601 and Kelly Brown for her wonderful Images!!!
