Our Favorite s

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

Aspen and Joey were one of my favorite weddings from last year at Aria in Minneapolis. Aspen and Joey hired Lasting Impressions to assist in the wedding design as well as coordinating the day of the wedding. The Design and Day of Package is one of my favorite services we offer because I love to take clients ideas for what they would like the day to look like and make it come to life!

We started by using cooper as an accent color and metallic in the invitation design as well as in the vases and accent pieces. PHOS was hired to create a beautiful light installation about the ceremony and the head table. The Patrick Lenz band was brought in from Kansas City to entertain the wedding guests well into the night!!!

Semple Mansion is one of the oldest mansions in Minneapolis and one of the most classic wedding venues that we have in Minnesota. It was the perfect backdrop for Alexa and George’s wedding ceremony and reception! On June 1st, Semple Mansion was filled with love, laughter and one of the most thoughtful couples I have had the pleasure to work with!

I was hired by Alexa and her wonderful mom, Jules to assist in designing and coordinating the day of the wedding. We met numerous times to discuss floorplans, logistics and vendors. The one thing that always struck me about Alexa as her down to earth attitude and her kind personality. Her goal for the wedding was simply to marry George and celebrate with all of her loved ones.

I have always loved working with Geneoh photography, but this wedding in particular makes me appreciate his amazing photo journalism. He captures moments in such a striking way!

When people first hear that I am a wedding planner the first question I normally get is “What is the craziest story that you have?” I understand the interest in all of the “crazy stories” but I wish that instead of asking me about crazy stories people would ask me about why I love my job. One big reason I love my job would be “Families”.

Everyday I get to work with and become part of amazing families and one of my favorite have been the Saunders Family. The whole family is so welcoming, nice, HAPPY, thoughtful and I have enjoyed every email, every call, every meeting that I have had over the years with this tight knit family.

I have had the joy of knowing Rachel’s family for years now, after I assisted with planning Mindy and Ryan’s wedding a few years ago (It feels like yesterday) and when I got the call from Debbie that Rachel was engaged I was so excited!

Rachel and Billy wanted to create a beautiful, fun and classic wedding and we brought on a fantastic team of vendors to help create this vision including Aria, Janelle Elise Photography, Linen Effects,Paper Rock Scissors and Munster Rose!

Rachel and Billy… It was so much fun and from the photo overload you can tell that I have a hard time picking my favorite images (Janelle- You are to blame for that!!) xoxoxo!!

Alyssa and Luke had a beautiful Summer Machine Shop Wedding in Minneapolis! The day could not have been more perfect and that is all because of the hard work Alysssa, Luke and Alyssa’s Mother Kesha put into the planning process!! Kesha actually reached out to me before Luke had even proposed to find out about Wedding Coordination Packages. She would be in touch as soon as they were formally engaged to get the process started (This surprisingly happens about 4-5 times a year 🙂

As soon as Luke proposed we hit the ground running securing the Machine Shop as our Venue, Janelle Elise Photography as our photographer and countless other vendors that made the day all come together!! The couple also wanted to add some really special details to the day to make it their own. Including our officiant.. It was Alyssa’s Grandfather and he did an amazing Job!! Alyssa and Luke’s favorite dessert is Ice Cream and their favorite place to get the ice cream was Grand Ole Creamery, so an ice cream bar seemed like the perfect sweet treat for the night!!

We wanted to incorporate the skyline of downtown Minneapolis into our decor. With the help of A Milestone Paper we created a design that was used on the invitations, day of stationery. We even had metal cutouts of the skyline incorporated into the placecard table and gift table (that the grooms family made!!)

Alyssa and Luke, It was wonderful getting to plan this wedding with you and I wish you lots of love starting your new life together in Louiseville Kentucky!

A Classic and Elegant Hutton House Wedding… Thats what I would use to describe Sarah and Will’s Wedding and both of their personal styles.. Classic and Elegant!

Planning with Sarah and Will was a breeze. She was decisive, had a vision of what she wanted and also knew a handful of vendors that she wanted to use. We first met at the Hewing Hotel for coffee and to start to get to know each other and instantly I knew that this “Sarah and Sarah” team would have a lot of fun together!!

Sarah and Will chose Hutton House for their ceremony and reception. It was still very new when they booked the venue and they were excited about the outdoor space for the ceremony and the possibilities for decor at the venue. The wedding day proved to be one of the most stressful I have ever endured due to the weather. All day we had a 50-70% chance of rain and we decided to “go for it” and try and do the wedding outside. I have never checked my phone so much in one day… and Thankfully for us.. It did not rain.. NOT all day!!

Sarah loved all of the details.. She wanted a boxwood backdrop for photos, she loved the idea of hanging greenery and chandlier’s, she wanted a live band, We brought in a greenery motif on her invitations and day of stationery. But the thing that I will always remember most about Sarah is that she really focused on the things that mattered… Will, Her friends and her family and just really being present in the moment and taking in this ONE day that goes by so quickly!!!

Minnesota Orchestra Hall Wedding

Kelsey and Kyle.. where to start, where to start???! Gosh, I love this couple so much and when I saw their wedding images I started to tear up going through all of the fun moments of the day!! You see, Kelsey is incredibly organized, super thoughtful and had an eagle eye on the vision of her day from the very beginning. She was a dream bride and I was happy to help her co-pilot the planning with her so that she could relax on the day of the wedding and just live in the moment!!

When Kelsey and Kyle hired me to be their planner they already had booked Orchestra Hall and I was very excited that they choose this venue for many reasons.. including the fact that I had never worked there before (which after 800 weddings, its hard to believe we have not been at a venue before!!). She hired Sadie’s Floral to string greenery through Orchestra Hall and Paper Rock Scissors brought all of the stationery details together in the Menu Cards, Signage and custom Ice Cream cups for the Sebastian Joes Dessert (YUM!!)
