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!

As the summer starts to draw to an end (How did that happen!!) I realize that I have not blogged much at all.  I still have some beautiful weddings from last summer to get on the blog and Anna and Henry’s wedding is one of them (and it is their anniversary in a few days!!!) YAY!!!

Anna called me about 2 months before their big day and I was explaining to her that I was already pretty full for the year and I was not sure if I was going to take on any more weddings. However, since hers was on a Friday and she had some amazing vendors I felt the need to talk to her more about it. And I instantly knew when I spoke to her that I wanted to work with her and help pull together her final details for her VERY well planned wedding!!

I loved her perspective on what a wedding should be.. she wanted this day to be able to celebrate with friends and family and she did not really care about a lot of extra “fluff”! They picked Cafe Lurcat for their wedding reception because Henry owns a restaurant and they always knew they wanted a more intimate feel vs. a standard hotel ballroom or reception space. When they picked Lurcat they knew that they would not have to do a lot of decorating or design since all of it was already so beautiful!! So Anna and Henry stuck to the elements they cared the most about.. they wanted good entertainment and good food.. and THEY had it.. and the wedding was filled with so much laughter (and lots of martinis 🙂

The Greatest honor I have as a wedding planner is having the opportunity to get to know a couple’s family and getting to work with them not once, but twice!! I had the joy of helping the Sutter Family plan Jordan’s wedding a few years ago, so when I got the call that Kelsey was engaged and needed assistance I was so excited!!

Kelsey was planning the wedding while in graduate school in Nebraska, so she started very early securing the best vendors and had no problem pin pointing the look she wanted for her Classic Depot Minneapolis wedding. Her mother Anne is one of the most organized and talented mothers I have had the pleasure to work with. There is nothing that her glue gun can not conquer 🙂

The day was perfect and filled with so much energy, excitement and celebration! Kelsey and Connor, thank you for letting me celebrate with you and your family not once, but twice!!

When I look at photos of Christine and Mike’s Wedding day.. all I can think of is Fun!! From the beginning of the planning all the way to the minute I left the dance.. the wedding and planning was so much fun and full of energy!! Christine and Mike picked Aria for their wedding venue and it was such a perfect spot for this fun couple that loved Music and Minneapolis!! They wanted the day to be easy for their guests and to serve good food, good drinks and have lots of good music.. and that is just what we got when we hired Casablanca Orchestra, Instant Request and Damico Catering.. It was a none stop party celebrating this lovely couple!!!
