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!

Tropical Wedding Decor

It is no secret that I love everything Tropical. My house is filled with Palm trees, I dream about beaches and the new trend of incorporating tropical designs into your wardrobe is something I can really get excited about!! So when Lindsay told me that she wanted to incorporate a tropical feel into her wedding… I knew I found the perfect design match!!! Lindsay and Javier live in New York, so most of our planning was done via email and on a few well planned trips back to Minnesota. We wanted to create a wedding design that was fun, unique and modern enough to match the McNamara Alumni Center.

When we started to plan this wedding, Tropical designs were just starting to show up as a trend. I was so excited when Lindsay trusted the vision and could envision how lovely this could all be together. Sadies Floral transformed the venue into a Tropical paradise. The Theme was complete with the Paper Rock Scissors stationery suite, the boxwood escort card holder and the beautiful Damico Catering Cake Design.
