Kayla and Kyle were married over Memorial Day weekend with picture perfect weather right on the banks of the Mississippi River at Nicollet Island Pavilion. Kayla and Kyle planned the whole wedding remotely while living in Texas, but that did not let that stop Kayla from putting her impeccable style on this wedding (seriously, I wish she was my stylist!). With bright summer colors, her wonderful florist (and neighbor) transformed the space into the perfect spot to celebrate Kayla and Kyle and to kick of summer!
I have so much love for this family its hard to even think of where to begin!! I have known the Roberts Family for three years now and it all began when I had the honor of planning Emily and Jay’s wedding in 2016. It was a beautiful event and my favorite part of planning was getting to know both Emily and Jay’s family and seeing the tight knit bond that they all had!
Fast forward to the summer of 2017… I woke up one morning to a text from Dave Roberts. He had sent the text late at night letting me know that Libbie and Matt had gotten engaged. You know that the planning process is going to be fun when on the night of the engagement you get a text!!
Luckily for me, I was open for the date they were hoping to get married and Libbie had already been in super planning mode locking down the Basilica and JX Event Center for their wedding date. With all of the plans starting to come together we focused on the decor, which is always my favorite part of the planning process. The Roberts family are experts at planning decor and always know exactly what they want. We combined elements of a classic wedding with fun and unique details such as gingham patterns, greenery and elegant white floral.
The bridesmaids wore custom made dresses by Camilynbeth (And they are even named the “Libbie”). Libbie incorporated many sentimental elements into her wedding day including a monogram on her veil, photo charms on her bouquet, and custom made cuff links.
We used Libbie and Matt’s monogram to really “brand” the wedding decor. The monogram was included on the day of stationery, favors and We even hung a 3ft monogram above the dance floor!
Just when I did not think the wedding could get any better, Matt’s bar was onsite to cook late night Juicy Lucys for all of the wedding guests… Talk about the perfect end to a great wedding!
Lindsay and Jimmy were married on a Magical December Day at the Minneapolis Event Venue, Hutton House!! Now, I have never wished for snow, especially not on a wedding day. But the timing of the snow on December 1st could not have been more perfect!! Right before the wedding ceremony the brown grass started to get covered and soon enough we had a perfect white blanket that was captured perfectly by Janelle Elise.
Inside Hutton House the atmosphere was warm, cozy and all about celebrating the love of Jimmy and Lindsay. Evergreen trees, hundreds of candles and a fresh blanket of snow outside made for the perfect night!
Hannah and Ryan’s wedding day was nothing short of spectacular! The Machine Shop in Northeast Minneapolis provided the stunning setting for their September celebration. Hannah looked FLAWLESS in her Hayley Paige wedding dress complete with the most stunning sleeves I have ever seen! All of the vendors pulled together to make this wedding a memorable day! From hanging greenery and lights by PHOS, to Hanging Swings for our photobooth (Yes, swings!!) there were a lot of classic and unique elements incorporated into their celebration!Sadie’s Floral created the perfect mix of light and summery floral with little touches of burnt orange to give the wedding a fall feel.Damico Catering once again provided a wonderful meal complete with an ice cream sundae bar!
Its couples like Hannah and Ryan that really make my job so much fun! I enjoyed every meeting with them and Hannah and I often found ourselves talking for hours and losing track of time and the tasks at hand!! I am so thankful for social media these days.. It makes me still feel connected to all of my past couples long after their wedding days!!
Ashley and Micheal were married on a Sunny and HOT August day on the rooftop of A’bulae in Downtown St. Paul! It was a beautiful and intimate wedding that featured one of the most stunning dresses I have EVER seen!! Ashley had a very clear vision of what she wanted her wedding day to look like and I was lucky enough to work with her to pull all of her ideas together to create the seamless vision for decor and for the flow of the day!! With the help of some wonderful vendors below we were able to take a classic wedding design and add lots of fun elements such as unique food stations, chocolate dipped desserts and a full floral photobooth backdrop for guests to capture their memories of the day!
I am just arriving back from a Thanksgiving Trip back home and it is always one of those trips that I come home refreshed and reflective of all of my blessings! 2018 has been another wonderful year filled with so much love, creativityand the hard work of hundreds and hundred of vendors and for that I am forever grateful!! We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families!!
Demi and Ryan hired us a year before their wedding and when they hired us, they already had most of their vendors reserved. Luckily for me, Demi had hired some of the best vendors in town and the rest of the planning was a dream! Because the couple lives out in Massachusetts we condensed all of our Decor and Design meetings into one big trip back into town and did all of the rest of the planning remotely! When the big day arrived, everything came together perfectly.. the only thing we could not predict was the ninety degree September weather! But even through all of the sweat, we had such a great time celebrating with this fantastic couple!
