lasting impressions weddings is an award-winning minnesota wedding planning and design company

I am sure its no surprise when you look at Leigh’s infectious smile that I loved working with her and Matt to plan their Summer Wedding at Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. The couple was sweet, bubbly and so thoughtful throughout the whole planning process.

While I have worked many weddings at Minikahda Club in the past, this was the first time I had a ceremony on the  lawn and we could not have asked for a better day!! With the beautiful backdrop of Lake Calhoun in the background Leigh and Matt said their vows and then guests proceeded to the rooftop deck for Cocktail Hour. The amazing dinner was topped off by Cake From Farina Bakery and the guests then danced the night away!

Lauren and John… a classic and timeless couple for a classic wedding and venue!! Lauren and John quickly picked Minikahda Club for their wedding reception after they were engaged. It was the perfect spot for their 120 guest wedding reception on a chilly November day! Lauren loved flowers and had an eye for detail. Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events transformed the ballroom with tons of textured florals in unique lilac and greenery hues. Printerette Press tied everything together with the simple and classic wedding invitation and the whismy and unique illustration they drew for the save the date and day of stationery! One of the final details we put on decor was ordering Macaroon Favors.  LADURÉE was a favorite of the bride and grooms and the color of the macaroon perfectly matched Minikahda Club’s charger plates!

Congratulations John and Lauren and thank you for letting me be apart of your big day!!!!

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!!!!!

Where do I start with Bridget and Jimmy? First off, I knew from the moment that I met them that they had an incredible bond, friendship and love…. and that is one of my favorite parts of my job.. to be able to continue to witness the love between my couples throughout some of the best days of their lives while planning their wedding!!

When they came to me they had thought they were going to wait until Spring of 2014 to get married, but soon after looking at venues they landed on October 26th, 2013 which meant that we needed to plan the wedding in 10 months. For some clients that would be difficult but when you are as organized and as good at making decisions as Bridget and Jimmy are… it is easy 🙂

They decided on Minikahda Club for their ceremony and reception and I feel like that choice was PERFECT for them. If I could sum up these two in a few words it would be Classic, Elegant and Timeless.. just like the Minikahda Club!

The team of vendors on this wedding were incredible and I owe all of these lovely images to Wing from Canary Grey! She has been friends with Bridget and Jim for a few years and that made her connection to the photos and the day of the wedding even more meaningful!! Congratulations to Bridget and Jim and may you have MANY more years of timeless love!!
