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

Jessica and Luke’s wedding day could not have been any more beautiful!! We had been planning this wedding for well over a year and Jessica perfected every last detail of the day!! The ceremony was at the iconic Basilica of St. Mary and the reception was at the Classic Lafayette Club on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. Both of these venues are timeless wedding venues that were as elegant and classic as the couple themselves. White floral with touches of greenery were used for the centerpieces and the Classic Lafayette Club ballroom glowed with candlelight.

 

I loved the detail of the monogram and wax seal that was used for the invitations as well as all of the day of stationery.The small details like this are what really tied everything together; And Farina made one of my favorite wedding cakes. The simple design was complemented by lots of white floral.

Sarah and Ryan were married at Lafayette Country Club on Lake Minnetonka this past Spring and we were honored to get to work with them!! Sarah hired us while she was living in San Francisco and planning the wedding from across the country. She works in the industry as a fashion and lifestyle blogger (Check out her blog!!) So she had a very clear vision of what she was looking for with her wedding decor!

A beautiful and elegant Balloon display, donut walls and a Monogramed white dance floor were a few of the fun elements I was excited to pull together for their special day! Sarah and Ryan’s Monogram really set the tone for the whole wedding as we started to brand it on the stationery, signage and even on the white dance floor.

Lafayette Club Fall Wedding

Have you ever met someone and knew instantly that they were one of the sweetest people you have ever met… well that happened the first day that I met Christina and her mom! I was instantly in love and so excited to be apart of their big day! From beautiful floral, a festive wedding party and a classic setting on the shores of Lake Minnetonka.. the day was a perfect fall day, although it was a little chilly!!

It was the first time I had the pleasure of working with Whims and Joy and Sammy captured the day perfectly!!  Sadie’s Floral and  Apres transformed the ballroom at Lafayette Club into a beautiful blush and champagne dream.

Allie and Daniel picked one of my favorite venues to get married at this past October.. Lafayette Club! Not only do I live close by the venue, but I am a big fan of golfing and the lake… so this venue combines all of my favorites perfectly!!

Just when I thought I could not love the club anymore, they decided to give the event spaces a fresh coat of paint, new carpet and lots of beautiful tweaks that really brightened up the space! The new decor was a perfect compliment for Allie and Daniel’s wedding decor! The couple wanted to bring in their love of wine and Tuscany throughout their wedding decor. We incorporated wine corks, wine boxes, an antipasto station and lots of sprigs of olive!

The wedding day was perfect and I love looking at Allie and Daniel’s infectious smiles!!! One reason the day went so perfectly was because of Allie’s mom, Mary!! This lady was a planning queen!! There was not a detail that was thought through and Allie and Daniel were lucky to have her on their planning team to take some of the decisions off of their plate!!

Happy Holidays Allie and Daniel… We loved working with you!!

Lafayette Club Wedding

Not all weddings day bring sunshine and great weather, and that is exactly what happened on Ashley and Tommy’s wedding day at Lafayette Club in June! But it would take a little bit more then rain to stop this group from celebrating! After a morning of heavy rain the skies cleared up just in time to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the lawn at Lafayette Club followed by photos on shore of Lake Minnetonka!

When Bella’s Mom called me to inquire for some assistance with her daughters wedding we were already pretty booked up for the year and I had just told myself that we were going to cut down on the number of weddings we took and take some time to slow down a bit; But then I started to talk to Cathy and I feel in love with her and I was instantly excited to help with this wedding!

Not only did they have the one and only Liz Banfield photographing the wedding at one of my favorite Lake Minnetonka Venues, Lafayette Club…. but they had already contracted numerous wonderful vendors (I mean… a 90’s cover band.. who could say no to that!!!).

We jumped in helping them plan the rest of the decor and details for the big day and helped pull everything together to create a seamless and beautiful wedding!! Bella and Cathy worked so well together and had the same vision for the day… A beautiful classic wedding filled with fun personalized details!

The weather on the wedding day was perfect and the Lafayette Club looked stunning filled with Linen Effects linens and Zinnia’s Floral! Congratulations Bella and Brett!! It was so much fun getting to know you and your wonderful family!
