The Greatest honor I have as a wedding planner is having the opportunity to get to know a couple’s family and getting to work with them not once, but twice!! I had the joy of helping the Sutter Family plan Jordan’s wedding a few years ago, so when I got the call that Kelsey was engaged and needed assistance I was so excited!!

Kelsey was planning the wedding while in graduate school in Nebraska, so she started very early securing the best vendors and had no problem pin pointing the look she wanted for her Classic Depot Minneapolis wedding. Her mother Anne is one of the most organized and talented mothers I have had the pleasure to work with. There is nothing that her glue gun can not conquer 🙂

The day was perfect and filled with so much energy, excitement and celebration! Kelsey and Connor, thank you for letting me celebrate with you and your family not once, but twice!!

Aria Minneapolis Warehouse Wedding

This  wedding…. Is really one for the books!! I often get asked.. are you doing anything really unique this year..and this was one time I could say “YES!!!” The day that I sat down with Maggie and Jared to go over their decor ideas I was on cloud nine!!!

Maggie is an interior designer and loves to really push the envelope to try something fun and unique. She kept saying “I want something really unique and different that has not been done before.” And that is easy to do when you really trust your vendors. With the help of Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events, Linen Effects, Girl Friday and Paper Rock Scissors we were able to create a cohesive and unique vision featuring pampas grass, Candles, Unique Textures, Balloons and Chandeliers.

Minnesota Best Wedding Planner

 

Sarah and Ryan were married at Lafayette Country Club on Lake Minnetonka this past Spring and we were honored to get to work with them!! Sarah hired us while she was living in San Francisco and planning the wedding from across the country. She works in the industry as a fashion and lifestyle blogger (Check out her blog!!) So she had a very clear vision of what she was looking for with her wedding decor!

A beautiful and elegant Balloon display, donut walls and a Monogramed white dance floor were a few of the fun elements I was excited to pull together for their special day! Sarah and Ryan’s Monogram really set the tone for the whole wedding as we started to brand it on the stationery, signage and even on the white dance floor.

Lauryn and Tommy’s JX Event Center wedding was the perfect “kick-off” to wedding season in March!!!! There was just enough snow on the ground for perfect photos, yet spring was on the way and Lauryn’s choice of bridesmaids dresses made everyone really crave the spring temperatures!!!

JX Event Center was a great backdrop for our elegant chandeliers, greenery and beautiful lilac flowers and linens!! Lake Elmo Inn is one of my favorite caterers and every time we get to go over to the East Side of the cities I am always so excited to get to use their catering services!!
