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 ūüôā

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!!

I am so excited to finally be able to share this wedding! It was featured on Style Me Pretty Last week and because of that I wanted to wait to blog about it!! I had the joy of working with Lisa and Chuck for not only their wedding, but also for Lisa’s Brother’s wedding a year ago.

As a native Minnesotan, Lisa always dreamed of getting married on the lake. We wanted to create a comfortable and elegant atmosphere that not only included nautical elements, but also paid homage to Chuck’s southern roots.

The festivities began one month before the wedding when Lisa and Chuck ‚ÄúBuried the Bourbon‚ÄĚ a very southern tradition that is said to bring good weather on the wedding day. They had the lovely and Talented Melissa Oholendt there to capture this as well!!!

For this event, we truly let nature be our guide. Utilizing the flowers that already adorned Lisa‚Äôs parents backyard, we accented them with fresh ferns, green hydrangeas and mums pairing perfectly with the preppy style of the blue blazered groomsmen and the fresh green stripes of the bridesmaid dresses. We wanted to give guests a taste of the nautical twist early on in the wedding process, so we created a rope motif that we carried from the invites, through to the table number holders, the menu cards and into the getaway boat‚Äôs ‚Äújust married‚ÄĚ sign. Each table was aptly named after different bays on Lake Minnetonka.

Guests were directed to their seats by a compass that was hand tied to their escort card. Continuing with the sweet southern tradition, a dainty piece of wedding cake and a slice of pecan pie was served to each guest. Bourbon cocktails melded the northern setting with the southern touches and a local baker made the brides‚Äô favorite ‚ÄúHometown Truffles‚ÄĚ to send guests off into the sunset with wishes of sweet dreams to tuck them in.
