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

Aspen and Joey were one of my favorite weddings from last year at Aria in Minneapolis. Aspen and Joey hired Lasting Impressions to assist in the wedding design as well as coordinating the day of the wedding. The Design and Day of Package is one of my favorite services we offer because I love to take clients ideas for what they would like the day to look like and make it come to life!

We started by using cooper as an accent color and metallic in the invitation design as well as in the vases and accent pieces. PHOS was hired to create a beautiful light installation about the ceremony and the head table. The Patrick Lenz band was brought in from Kansas City to entertain the wedding guests well into the night!!!

Cheri and Jeff were not only so much fun to work with because of their love for each other, but they are also engineers and I got to learn about the wedding planning process through a whole other set of eyes! They were meticulous on the detailing of the invitations, making sure that the colors were all incorporated perfectly and that the day flowed seamless.. This was a quality that I not only loved.. But I also felt so honored that they chose me to help create their special day! Cheri and Jeff lived in Boston when we started our wedding planning and with job changes they moved to California during the last months of our planning.. This not only made having a wedding planner handy for them , but crucial! Cheri and Jeff made it back to Minnesota just a few times during they’re planning to pick out all of their decor, taste their delicious food and nail down all of the logistics.

We took the flowers off of Cheri’s dress as the main inspiration for the design of the wedding, incorporate the subtle floral design into the invitations, cake, and day of stationery! We wanted to incorporate a unique table scape for their small and intimate wedding that featured some really fun elements such as leaves that were colored purple and gold, and bright and bold floral designs.
The couples love of nature was clear throughout the details including river rocks that the guests signed in lieu of a guest book and Tables named after the couples favorite lakes.
Cheri and Jeff changed into  traditional Chinese dress for their entrance into the reception to honor her heritage and then following the cake cutting the couple disappeared to change back into their dress clothes for a dramatic and choreographed dance they had been working on for months!

Chanel and Micheal had been planning their wedding for a few years when the big day finally arrived and they were so happy to finally just be married!!!! I met Chanel and Mike after they had already picked out the Woods Chapel and the Lafayette Club and I had a lot of fun combining their personal style with the venues to create a very unique,elegant and botanical wedding!! Chanel and Mike love the outdoors and we wanted to bring that style into the classic venue of the Lafayette Club!
Succulents, candleabras and Table Numbers die cut into the shape of MN tied everything together perfectly!
