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

Where do I start with Bridget and Jimmy? First off, I knew from the moment that I met them that they had an incredible bond, friendship and love…. and that is one of my favorite parts of my job.. to be able to continue to witness the love between my couples throughout some of the best days of their lives while planning their wedding!!

When they came to me they had thought they were going to wait until Spring of 2014 to get married, but soon after looking at venues they landed on October 26th, 2013 which meant that we needed to plan the wedding in 10 months. For some clients that would be difficult but when you are as organized and as good at making decisions as Bridget and Jimmy are… it is easy ūüôā

They decided on Minikahda Club for their ceremony and reception and I feel like that choice was PERFECT for them. If I could sum up these two in a few words it would be Classic, Elegant and Timeless.. just like the Minikahda Club!

The team of vendors on this wedding were incredible and I owe all of these lovely images to Wing from Canary Grey! She has been friends with Bridget and Jim for a few years and that made her connection to the photos and the day of the wedding even more meaningful!! Congratulations to Bridget and Jim and may you have MANY more years of timeless love!!

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!
