Jenna and Jesse's Wedding Video

We are so excited to share Jenna and Jesse’s Wedding video from the VERY talented Capture Studios! This wedding will always hold a special place in my heart.. not only because of all of the LOVE that Jenna and her mom poured into personalizing this wedding.. but also because it is right by my hometown. It is so fun to get out of the city a few weekends out of the year!!!

Outdoor Wedding Love

There is no secret that we love outdoor weddings and farm weddings! I think that the personalization that is done when a wedding is hosted a the couples home/farm is really what makes the wedding very unique and memorable. This past weekend’s wedding was NO Different.. if you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you are probably sick of these images.. but I had to share as my email was flooded in the last 2 days with questions on the decor!! I have attached our photos from our lovely iPhones.. but I can not wait to see and share with you the professional photos!!

Thank you so much to Apres, Sadies Floral and most importantly to Jenna, Jesse, Mark and Denise for your hours of hard work dreaming up and assembling so much of the decor elements!!!!

Fun Wedding Food!!

When I started Lasting Impressions six years ago personalizing the wedding was all about picking out decor that meant a lot to the couples, finding favors that were unique and different and adding lots of “personality” to the stationary and paper products! Personalizing Weddings is my favorite part of my job. I always say that I want to make your wedding a lot more than just “Another pretty wedding” I want to make it about the couple and I want people to leave feeling like that wedding was “them”. Wedding food has evolved over the years. It is now a platform to really showcase what the couple loves to eat and where they came from.

Here is a peak at some of our favorite ideas for late night snacks, appetizers, dessert bars, etc. that really personalize a wedding!!
