Lauryn and Tommy’s JX Event Center wedding was the perfect “kick-off” to wedding season in March!!!! There was just enough snow on the ground for perfect photos, yet spring was on the way and Lauryn’s choice of bridesmaids dresses made everyone really crave the spring temperatures!!!

JX Event Center was a great backdrop for our elegant chandeliers, greenery and beautiful lilac flowers and linens!! Lake Elmo Inn is one of my favorite caterers and every time we get to go over to the East Side of the cities I am always so excited to get to use their catering services!!

Jimmy and Lindsay’s wedding day was such a memorable and special day and we are lucky that Alma Films was there to capture this Hutton House Wedding Video! Lindsay and Jimmy transformed Hutton House into a winter wonderland… bringing in Evergreen Trees and adding lots of holiday touches! Just before the ceremony the snow started and it resulted into beautiful photos and a memory I will never forget!

Kayla and Kyle were married over Memorial Day weekend with picture perfect weather right on the banks of the Mississippi River at Nicollet Island Pavilion. Kayla and Kyle planned the whole wedding remotely while living in Texas, but that did not let that stop Kayla from putting her impeccable style on this wedding (seriously, I wish she was my stylist!). With bright summer colors, her wonderful florist (and neighbor) transformed the space into the perfect spot to celebrate Kayla and Kyle and to kick of summer!

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!

I am just arriving back from a Thanksgiving Trip back home and it is always one of those trips that I come home refreshed and reflective of all of my blessings! 2018 has been another wonderful year filled with so much love, creativity and the hard work of hundreds and hundred of vendors and for that I am forever grateful!!  We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families!!

Now onto Demi and Ryan’s Beautiful wedding day!!! This one of many weddings we have a privilege of planning at Aria with a including Russell Heeter and Landon Oldenburger! 

Demi and Ryan hired us a year before their wedding and when they hired us, they already had most of their vendors reserved. Luckily for me, Demi had hired some of the best vendors in town and the rest of the planning was a dream! Because the couple lives out in Massachusetts we condensed all of our Decor and Design meetings into one big trip back into town and did all of the rest of the planning remotely! When the big day arrived, everything came together perfectly.. the only thing we could not predict was the ninety degree September weather! But even through all of the sweat, we had such a great time celebrating with this fantastic couple!
