Hannah and Ryan’s wedding day was nothing short of spectacular! The Machine Shop in Northeast Minneapolis provided the stunning setting for their September celebration. Hannah looked FLAWLESS in her Hayley Paige wedding dress complete with the most stunning sleeves I have ever seen! All of the vendors pulled together to make this wedding a memorable day! From hanging greenery and lights by PHOS, to Hanging Swings for our photobooth (Yes, swings!!) there were a lot of classic and unique elements incorporated into their celebration! Sadie’s Floral created the perfect mix of light and summery floral with little touches of burnt orange to give the wedding a fall feel. Damico Catering once again provided a wonderful meal complete with an ice cream sundae bar!

Its couples like Hannah and Ryan that really make my job so much fun! I enjoyed every meeting with them and Hannah and I often found ourselves talking for hours and losing track of time and the tasks at hand!! I am so thankful for social media these days.. It makes me still feel connected to all of my past couples long after their wedding days!!

Machine Shop Minneapolis Wedding

This is the season of thanks and as you can probably tell from my last blog post, I have been thinking about that a lot this year. There is a perception that wedding season slows down in the winter months. While the weddings every weekend do slow down, it is the time of the year that we are in back to back meetings with the florists, stationery designers, tasting cakes, booking bands. You get the point 🙂 So while there is never really an “off” time around Lasting Impressions… I am always so thankful for a few more days at my desk to look through photos of the weddings from Summer, organize my files and just thank god for giving me a job that I adore!!!

So on the topic of people I adore, I want to share with you Kim and Alec’s wedding!! This family has a special part of my heart for many years! I first met the Saunders when I got to help Mindy and Ryan plan their special day and then a few years later I got the call that Rachel and Billy were getting married  and then shortly after that Kim and Alec started to plan their big day!! Kim and Alec were not only wonderful to work with, but they were super decisive. Busy careers and coaching schedules left little time for meetings and deliberation. Kim and Alec did a great job of trusting their vendors and with Mother of the Bride Debbie at the helm, there was not a detail missed. 

The weather may not have cooperated as much as we would have wished, but the rain did stop for just long enough to get some beautiful photos in downtown Wayzata and downtown Minneapolis! The couple picked the Machine Shop for their reception venue and wanted a really light and airy decor. Mixing in hanging lights, greenery and light blue fabrics we created a really summery fresh feel.  

To say that I am sad that this is the last wedding for the family is an understatement.. but I will always cherish all of my planning with them and luckily, I get to run into them every once and a while at weddings!

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!!)

I had the honor of helping Melissa and David plan their June wedding at Aria in Minneapolis and let me tell you.. I just loved working with this fun family!! It all started last year when I had the honor of planning Melissa’s sister Jenni’s wedding at Nicollet Island Pavillion. Two sisters getting married 8 months apart…. now that’s a busy year for all of the friends and family involved!!

When Melissa hired us she already had the venue and a handful of vendors.. so our services were geared toward helping her and David design the wedding they had envisioned in Aria. Melissa ended up picking a very soft mauve bridesmaids dress color and we geared most of the floral and stationery to this fresh, summery color palette. It helped to soften up the very industrial and dark wedding venue to make it feel like a secret garden in the middle of the city. The hanging greenery and lights structure by PHOS and Sadie’s Floral was the piece that I thought gave the most impact to the room. It not only helped to lighten up the space, but also gave a beautiful and magical feel to the space!
