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

Planning a wedding with an organized bride, an adorable groom and a mother of the bride who is also an interior designer was an absolute dream and I think it can be seen in these beautiful wedding pictures!! 

Greta and Drew were married on an idyllic September Day at Wayzata Community Church and The Minikahda Club. Greta and Drew’s classic style was elevated when we incorporated blue and white chinoiserie into their centerpiece and wedding design. Combining many of the families personal vases bright floral and chinoiserie charger plates completed the look.

2021… Was a whirlwind to say the least, but here we are at the end of the year feeling thankful for all our amazing couples that weathered the last two years with us!! A year ago there was so much uncertainty about weddings and events and while covid does not look like it is going away anytime soon, I can tell you that love won in 2021! We were able to celebrate and finally couples were able to walk down the aisle! I wanted to close out this whirlwind of a year with one of our favorite families and weddings of 2021!!

Madeleine and Jared were married in September at The Basilica of St. Mary with their reception at the White Bear Yacht Club (one of our favorite venues!!) I was lucky enough to have planned both of Madeleine’s sisters weddings so when I got a text from her Dad telling me that Madeleine and Jared were engaged I was so excited to get started!!!!!! They knew they wanted to get married in 2021 and we would need to get planning right away to find the perfect venue.

They wanted something near the water and loved the idea of a tent wedding, I instantly thought that the White Bear Yacht Club would be the perfect fit for them!! Not only is the Yacht Club a beautiful location, but it was also great for the elegant and timeless vision Madeleine had for her wedding decor. Monogramed Bars, Hydrangeas, Embroidered Napkins, Hanging Floral… Not a detail was missed! And the weather… well it could not have been better! We got the best weather of September and it made for a magical day!

It’s hard to believe that this winter wedding was already just about a year ago… and It was the last wedding that we did before COVID took over!! But enough about that, lets talk all about Marlee and Todd’s beautiful wedding! Minnesota in February can be unpredictable, but luckily for us the weather was cooperating very well and created the perfect backdrop for this Leap Day Winter Wedding! With most of their guests flying in from the East Coast Marlee and Todd wanted to make everything easy for their guests and wanted to have a really fun party.

We started planning this wedding just 7 months before the big day and the top priorities were booking our amazing Photographer, Laura Rae Photography and booking a band that would keep everyone on the dance floor all night.. and that was Elan Artists!! The rest of the plans came together through numerous emails and a few trips back to Minnesota for planning meetings! The decor was modern mixed with a classic and traditional element. Round and Long guest tables created a unique atmosphere and also created a large dance floor for our HORA!! The room looked warm and inviting and all of the guests did dance all night long!

There are a countless to wow guests at your wedding, but there is nothing that will transform your event space quite like a Hanging Installations for your Wedding!  From loosely-draped hanging greenery, Floral Installations or statement light fixtures the ways to elevate your installation are endless!! We have incorporated everything from into these statement pieces. Fringe, Ribbon, Loose Greenery, Floral Orbs and we even had a bike suspended about a head table once!! 

Some key tips to remember if you are wanting to incorporate a Floral or Greenery hanging installation at your wedding.

  • Make sure your venue has the infrastructure in their ceiling that will allow installations to be hung. Some of these designs are HEAVY and need a very stable hanging point.
  • Ask your venue if they have a lift on site or if that would need to rented. That can affect the cost of your installation.
  • Research what your vendors have on hand already. Working with your vendors existing inventory will save you alot of money vs. having to custom order speciality items.
  • Make sure your florist has the ability to install the installation.. Or Hire a company like PHOS to assist (this guy is amazing!!)

There are a few key locations in which a hanging installation will be impactful at your wedding.

  • Over the head table
  • Hung about your dance floor
  • Over your place card table
  • Over your cake table

Here are some of our favorite Hanging Installations for your wedding!
