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

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 ūüôā
