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!!

Like so many other Minnesotan’s “Going Up North” is not just a fun summer vacation, but it is really an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. That is exactly what Erin and Ross’s wedding felt like to me! Even though out of town weddings pose a lot of additional challenges for wedding vendors, I jumped at the chance to be apart of Erin and Ross’s intimate wedding celebration at Madden’s on Gull Lake.

Erin’s family has had a cabin on Gull Lake all of her life and she really wanted to share the love of the lake with all of her guests. Erin and Ross were also traveling for this destination wedding from Texas, so most of our planning was done in marathon planning sessions and lots and lots of emails 🙂

Their wedding day was one of the most beautiful days of the summer and with the help of all of our amazing vendors that traveled many miles to help with this wedding…It was a picture perfect day on the lake!!!!

I am not sure if it is the mutual love of the lake or the fact that we are both blonde and like to talk (a lot) But from the minute I met Clare and her parents I instantly fell in love with them and I knew that the next few months planning their wedding would be a lot of fun!! Clare and Trent had been in numerous weddings while their wedding and I think that gave them a lot of ideas and direction on what vendors they liked and what decor they wanted to incorporate.

I have a lot of “favorite” parts of this wedding, but I am especially fond of the beautiful stationery products. Because the wedding venues were surrounded by Lake Minnetonka we chose to do an illustration of the lake, the Lafayette Club and the church. The illustration that was done by Cait Courneya and Paper Rock Scissors and it set the perfect tone for this wedding!

Love you lots Clare and Trent!

People often ask me “What types of wedding clients do you attract and get to work with?” I would say that our “typical” clients have changed quite a bit over the last 10 1/2 years in business.. but the one thing that remains the same year after year Is that we do get to help a lot of clients that are planning long distance. This year alone 60% of my clients live out of Minnesota and honestly.. I love assisting and making the planning process easier for these clients. Karley and Brock are one of those clients and we were lucky enough to get to help them with their wonderful Lake of the Isles Church and Interlachen Country Club wedding  on July 30th, 2016!

When Karley and Brock called me they had just booked Interlachen Country Club and were headed off to New York for Brock’s 2016 Hockey Season.. so they knew that they would not have a lot of time to plan and come home to hire vendors. As you can tell below.. we were able to bring on a group of wonderful vendors to pull Karley and Brock’s visions together and to make sure that when they did get very limited time at home that we utilized it with wonderful meetings and efficient decision making!!!  Congratulations again Karley and Brock.. and we will be cheering you on Brock for another great hockey season!!
