This wedding… Wow!!! Thats all I can say!!! I was so honored when Bailey and Matt hired us to help plan their June wedding. Not only did I feel an immmediate connection with Bailey , but I also loved how she trusted the vendors that she hired!!

At the first meeting, Bailey and Matt had a handful of inspiration photos of what they were looking for in terms of decor. Those inspiration photos then turned into sketches and ideas put on paper by Sadies Floral and PHOS Events.

Luckily for all of us, the sketch turned into a beautiful reality and on a Sunday afternoon in June Aria was transformed into a space filled with hanging chandeliers, hanging flowers, a hanging chuppa and lots and lots of beautiful white flowers and candles!!

There are few events that truly take my breath away after planning 800 weddings.. and this was one that did, not only because it was beautiful, but also because Bailey and Matt trusted the vision and never quesitoned all of the crazy sketches and mockups we made ūüôā

This past summer we have had the pleasure of being at the new Venue in Minneapolis, The ¬†Machine Shop a few different times and we love how the venue transforms for each couples vision and style. Jamie and Sam planned their wedding while leaving on the East Coast and traveling a lot for work… not only is that a lot to take on, but Jamie was the DIY queen. She not only bought all of her own linens, made all of her own stationery, her mom even sewed all 300 of the pink napkins so that they could be the perfect shade of pink!!!
I had a lot of fun getting to know Jamie, Sam and both of their families! They not only planned a wonderful wedding, but they also planned numerous days of lake activities to let their guests take advantage of the beautiful Minnesota Summer!!!

When I look at photos of Christine and Mike’s Wedding day.. all I can think of is Fun!! From the beginning of the planning all the way to the minute I left the dance.. the wedding and planning was so much fun and full of energy!! Christine and Mike picked Aria for their wedding venue and it was such a perfect spot for this fun couple that loved Music and Minneapolis!! They wanted the day to be easy for their guests and to serve good food, good drinks and have lots of good music.. and that is just what we got when we hired Casablanca Orchestra, Instant Request and Damico Catering.. It was a none stop party celebrating this lovely couple!!!

As the summer starts to draw to an end (How did that happen!!) I realize that I have not blogged much at all. ¬†I still have some beautiful weddings from last summer to get on the blog and Anna and Henry’s wedding is one of them (and it is their anniversary in a few days!!!) YAY!!!

Anna called me about 2 months before their big day and I was explaining to her that I was already pretty full for the year and I was not sure if I was going to take on any more weddings. However, since hers was on a Friday and she had some amazing vendors I felt the need to talk to her more about it. And I instantly knew when I spoke to her that I wanted to work with her and help pull together her final details for her VERY well planned wedding!!

I loved her perspective on what a wedding should be.. she wanted this day to be able to celebrate with friends and family and she did not really care about a lot of extra “fluff”! They picked Cafe Lurcat for their wedding reception because Henry owns a restaurant and they always knew they wanted a more intimate feel vs. a standard hotel ballroom or reception space. When they picked Lurcat they knew that they would not have to do a lot of decorating or design since all of it was already so beautiful!! So Anna and Henry stuck to the elements they cared the most about.. they wanted good entertainment and good food.. and THEY had it.. and the wedding was filled with so much laughter (and lots of martinis ūüôā
