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

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 ūüôā

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!!)

As the summer starts to draw to an end (How did that happen!!) I realize that I have not blogged much at all. ¬†I still have some beautiful weddings from last summer to get on the blog and Anna and Henry’s wedding is one of them (and it is their anniversary in a few days!!!) YAY!!!

Anna called me about 2 months before their big day and I was explaining to her that I was already pretty full for the year and I was not sure if I was going to take on any more weddings. However, since hers was on a Friday and she had some amazing vendors I felt the need to talk to her more about it. And I instantly knew when I spoke to her that I wanted to work with her and help pull together her final details for her VERY well planned wedding!!

I loved her perspective on what a wedding should be.. she wanted this day to be able to celebrate with friends and family and she did not really care about a lot of extra “fluff”! They picked Cafe Lurcat for their wedding reception because Henry owns a restaurant and they always knew they wanted a more intimate feel vs. a standard hotel ballroom or reception space. When they picked Lurcat they knew that they would not have to do a lot of decorating or design since all of it was already so beautiful!! So Anna and Henry stuck to the elements they cared the most about.. they wanted good entertainment and good food.. and THEY had it.. and the wedding was filled with so much laughter (and lots of martinis ūüôā

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 ūüôā

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!!
