Today is another beautiful wedding photographed by Laura Ivanova Photography! Sophie and Andy were married on a beautiful Friday in September on the terrace of the Calhoun Beach Club. It was a joy to help Sophie and Andy plan their wedding, not only because I really got to know them and loved working with them.. but also because Sophie was from England and I learned so much about English weddings, traditions, culture and ……..her mother had a fabulous accent!! We wanted to create a mix between a formal sit down wedding with an English Garden wedding!! We incorporated long tables at the venue with beautiful little vignettes of flowers in bright colors from Zinnia Designs ! Guests wore fascinators.. and I even was gifted one from the Mother of the Bride!!

Congratulations Sophie and Andy – I loved getting to know you and being a part of your big day!!

On this dreary winter day I thought that we could all use a little pink and a lot of pretty!! Lauren and Dillon came to me in early 2013 wanting to get married in Fall of 2013.. so quickly we started to plan their September 13th wedding at Aria at Jeune Lune and Our Lady of Victory Chapel!! Lauren has impeccable taste… she works at a fashion PR agency in Chicago and she is always very put together to say the least!!! Her vision for the wedding was clear and with the help of Apres and Martha’s Garden’s one of my favorite weddings came together!!

Thank you Lauren and Dillon for letting me be apart of your big day!!!!

Eliza and Eric were married on a beautiful fall day at the Landmark Center in St. Paul! The fall colors mixed with the beautiful backdrop of Rice Park and the Landmark center for some amazing photos and beautiful details!!

Eliza and Eric hired the best of the best for vendors including Just Bloomed, Apres, and one of my favorite Photographers… Andrew Vick! The details below speak for themselves and one of my favorite desserts of all time is still the “Fall Trio” by Cocoa and Fig! Guests were presented with an acrylic box of 3 desserts beautifully packaged with a note and a spoon…. they could either enjoy at the wedding or bring back to their hotel!!!

It’s been a little over a year since this amazing day…. Happy Anniversary to Eliza and Eric!!

Lauren and Will started to plan their wedding a year and a half before the big day because Lauren was in graduate school at Yale and her and Will were living miles and miles apart! I was so honored when Lauren and her mother called me to set up a meeting because Ihad planned her brothers wedding the previous year! To get a chance to work with a family again is a wonderful experience because you already have a sense of their style.. you already know so much about them and it just makes the process more fun!!

They had a beautiful church ceremony at Church of Holy Family and then celebrated the day with a very festive party at Carlson Towers Rotunda! Music is very important for Lauren and Will and we had a day filled with beautiful music starting with the ceremony music by the Cathedral of St. Paul Choir, cocktail hour music by Copper Street Brass and then finishing up the night with Instant Request!

Lauren and Will, Thank you for inviting me into your family… again 🙂
