Assigned Seating Charts...

I often hear that people “dread” assigning tables for their wedding guests. And as I am sure it is a daunting task it does not have to be as hard as it seems! I learned about this “post it” trick a few years ago and I think this is the easiest way to be able to move around your guests and prepare for your wedding day!
Make last-minute changes easy and less stressful by writing guests' names on these thin adhesive strips (or cut up sticky notes). To rearrange people in a pinch, create color-coded groups, such as bride's family, groom's family, friends, and kids.

Hannah and Matt- Winter Love...

I was so excited to see these amazing images from Stephany at Eye Spy Photography. Not only are they amazing and capture the day perfectly, but they were also sent to me just 3 days after the wedding!! One more reason to love winter weddings is that vendors have a little bit more time!
Snow came through the area on Friday and covered the streets beautifully for these photos! I was lucky enough to meet Hannah and Matt over a year ago. From our initial meeting I could tell the love that Matt and Hannah had for eachother. In the middle of the planning process Matt was deployed; Although I am sure it was very hard for Hannah she remained very strong and optimistic about the wedding and the planning process. I was lucky enough to get to work with Hannah to shape their wedding through many emails and a few trips back to Minnesota!
Matt and Hannah - I wish you all of the luck and love that your new marriage will give you.. Good luck in all of your adventures!

Color of the Year- "I Believe In Pink"...


Every year Pantone names their color of the year. This year it is the vibrant color of Honeysuckle! This color just reminds me of spring, peonies and LOVE!

Here is what Pantone wrote about their color of the year choice: “While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life. 

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

In the Words of Audrey Hepburn.... “ I believe pink”

Here is a wonderful styleboard prepared by“Prepare to Wed”

Fun Centerpiece Idea

I love this mirrored candle centerpiece for any venue that requires that all candles be enclosed (which are most venues) This adds a very contemporary look to any event!!! Right now these are only available to buy from Fete in New York. I hope to see them in this area soon!!
Happy Friday!

Angie and Cody - September 11th

It’s hard to believe it was just a year ago that I met Angie and I met her to discuss her Fairmont, MN wedding to the wonderful groom Cody. I grew up in a small town close to Fairmont, and I understood the difficulty of pulling together an elegant wedding for a large amount of guests in the rural area. I was so excited to sign on and start helping Angie, Cody and Angie’s wonderful mom on the planning and designing their dream wedding. 400 guests in a campground pavillion was quite the task to “design” but with the help of Apres Party Rental, Sadies Floral and Angies wonderful ideas we were able to turn the campground into Angie and Cody’s dream wedding day!! We had a team of wonderful vendors for their wedding.. and a lot of fun elements to make this wedding memorable such as an espresso bar, dessert shooters, cheesecake, a photo booth, a video DJ and a smoothie bar! Thanks Angie and Cody for letting me be a part of your wonderful story!
