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!

Machine Shop Wedding

When I first met with Heather, about a year before her wedding, she already had a great idea of what she wanted her wedding to look like and how she wanted it to feel for her guests.The couple had booked the Machine Shop for her wedding reception and they had already hired a handful of awesome vendors. I was lucky enough to get to work together with her to bring the rest of her vision to life!

Heather knew she wanted to add a lot of soft colors and elements to the decor to soften The Machine Shop’s Industrial Look. Kindred Blooms was the perfect florist to bring all of Heather’s Visions together! They incorporated soft fabrics, hanging floral and ribbons to create a 3D ceiling installation that turned the Machine Shop’s industrial space into a whimsical wedding venue.  Trees were added along the sides of the stage to bring an element of the outdoors inside. Paper Rock Scissors and Farina brought tied all of the elements together in the stationery and dessert designs.

The ceremony took place at St. Thomas Chapel, which held a lot of special meaning to both Heather and Guiseppe since they both attended college there!

We had the privilege of working alongside Russell Heeter and John Hoel who captured all of the elements of the day (Love these guys!!) and Good for Gary certainly got the party of the dance floor! The weather was perfect and I could not have enjoyed working with Heather, Giuseppe and  her mom planning this beautiful wedding!!

We began and ended our 2017 wedding season at the Machine Shop and what a great a way to end such a fun wedding season! I was lucky enough to have coordinated Kira’s Sister’s wedding a few years ago.. so I was ecstatic to get the email from Kira that she was also getting married and needed some help!! When she contacted me she already had a few of her key vendors booked and just needed assistance pulling together a lot of her design ideas and making sure that everything flowed well throughout the day!

Like alot of our 2017 couples.. Kira and Max loved the colorful and soft touch that greenery brought to the venue and we incorporated alot of greenery in the table decor as well as on the stationery! Andrew Vick brought his usual energy to the rainy day to make sure that even the weather would not put a damper on the day!
