Let me first start off by saying that it has taken me an hour to try and narrow down photos for this blog post! Not only because Joe and Jen Photography make it really hard to pick favorites, but also because a LARGE Two Day Western and Hindu Fusion Wedding had a lot of wonderful moments and memories to sort through!

For Sarah and Brian’s fusion wedding we explored TONS of options… Should we have all of the events in one day? Should we have all of the events at the same venue? Should we split it up over a Saturday and Sunday or would it be best to utlize a Friday and Saturday? After hours and hours debating, planning and stategizing the timeline and flow of both days we landed on an East meets West style; We had a traditional western church ceremony on Saturday followed by a reception for guests that had flown across the country to celebrate with Sarah and Brian. On Sunday morning we headed up to  the Hindu Temple of Minnesota for the Hindu ceremony followed by a lunch and then a bright, fun and festive reception at Aria.

We wanted to utlize as many of the same vendors as possible on both days, however we wanted to give each day its own unique look and feel. For Saturday’s festivies Sarah wore a traditional (and beautiful) white gown and our decor was all very neutral, classic and understated. Sunday was the complete opposite with Sarah in a traditional Indian regalia surrounded by Bright, Bold, Colors that really kicked off the start of summer!!

As I am sure you can tell from the photos… Sarah and Brian’s smiles are infectious and both of these doctors have the deemener of a saint! Planning one wedding can easily push a couple over the edge, but trying to plan two  large and very different weddings at the same time takes a tremendous amount of patience and stamina.

Sarah and Brian- You are the best! If you ever decide to plan another non-stop wedding weekend… I will be there right with you!!!!

Megan and Drew ….Where do I start, I absolutely loved helping them plan their wedding!!!! First of all, look at their smiles that go EAR to EAR and you can tell that their wedding day was just one step in their adventure together!

They began planning last fall, a few moments after they were engaged! Luckily for me, I had already met Megan when I planned her cousin’s wedding years earlier and I was ecstatic to get the call from Megan to see if I was available!   Lauren and Megan were some of the most organized and stylish brides I have ever worked with, and the similarities I saw in each of them made the process so much fun!

Not only did I love that Megan was SO organized . But I also adored the way that her and Drew looked at each other and worked with each other in the planning of the wedding. They really wanted a wedding-focused around their love and the love of all of their friends and family! Additionally, they had both been in a lot of weddings, so when we were trying to find a venue for their reception we quickly narrowed down the options. Luckily for us, Loring Social had just started to book weddings for the summer and fall of 2017 and we knew immediately it would be a great fit for the wedding they were envisioning.

Loring Social’s decor is very clean and modern, so we decided to use long tables to maximize our guest count and use pops of bright colors to warm up the space. Geometric shapes played a big part of the stationery design and we wanted to include that look and feel in the centerpieces as well. The look worked great with the modern space.  There were also numerous personal touches to the wedding. Megan and her bridesmaids got ready at her grandmother’s home, which was a tradition in the family. Megan and Drew left the church in Megan’s Grandparents classic car.  And Cookies and Milk Boxes were delivered to the tables for dessert… a personal favorite of the grooms!

Congratulations Megan and Drew… Working with you was such a JOY!!
