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

Aspen and Joey were one of my favorite weddings from last year at Aria in Minneapolis. Aspen and Joey hired Lasting Impressions to assist in the wedding design as well as coordinating the day of the wedding. The Design and Day of Package is one of my favorite services we offer because I love to take clients ideas for what they would like the day to look like and make it come to life!

We started by using cooper as an accent color and metallic in the invitation design as well as in the vases and accent pieces. PHOS was hired to create a beautiful light installation about the ceremony and the head table. The Patrick Lenz band was brought in from Kansas City to entertain the wedding guests well into the night!!!

Alyssa and Luke had a beautiful Summer Machine Shop Wedding in Minneapolis! The day could not have been more perfect and that is all because of the hard work Alysssa, Luke and Alyssa’s Mother Kesha put into the planning process!! Kesha actually reached out to me before Luke had even proposed to find out about Wedding Coordination Packages. She would be in touch as soon as they were formally engaged to get the process started (This surprisingly happens about 4-5 times a year 🙂

As soon as Luke proposed we hit the ground running securing the Machine Shop as our Venue, Janelle Elise Photography as our photographer and countless other vendors that made the day all come together!! The couple also wanted to add some really special details to the day to make it their own. Including our officiant.. It was Alyssa’s Grandfather and he did an amazing Job!! Alyssa and Luke’s favorite dessert is Ice Cream and their favorite place to get the ice cream was Grand Ole Creamery, so an ice cream bar seemed like the perfect sweet treat for the night!!

We wanted to incorporate the skyline of downtown Minneapolis into our decor. With the help of A Milestone Paper we created a design that was used on the invitations, day of stationery. We even had metal cutouts of the skyline incorporated into the placecard table and gift table (that the grooms family made!!)

Alyssa and Luke, It was wonderful getting to plan this wedding with you and I wish you lots of love starting your new life together in Louiseville Kentucky!

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!!)

Aria Minneapolis Warehouse Wedding

This  wedding…. Is really one for the books!! I often get asked.. are you doing anything really unique this year..and this was one time I could say “YES!!!” The day that I sat down with Maggie and Jared to go over their decor ideas I was on cloud nine!!!

Maggie is an interior designer and loves to really push the envelope to try something fun and unique. She kept saying “I want something really unique and different that has not been done before.” And that is easy to do when you really trust your vendors. With the help of Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events, Linen Effects, Girl Friday and Paper Rock Scissors we were able to create a cohesive and unique vision featuring pampas grass, Candles, Unique Textures, Balloons and Chandeliers.

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!
