For Brides

When I ask brides to describe their vision for their wedding, often they describe what they want for their centerpieces. “My vision is log rounds on the tables and candles.” Uh, what? Ok. That’s great. But we’ve got some work to do girl… Friends, your wedding vision is about so much more than what’s on […]

Sometimes you go to work, spill coffee on your shirt, read your book instead of eating your lunch, and basically count down the seconds until you can blow that popsicle stand…and other times…you see the love of your life from across the room and fall head over heels.

My favorite part about my job is seeing bridesmaids from weddings I’ve done in the past, become the bride themselves! And that was exactly the case when I was present to handle Taylor’s wedding to her love Cameron this past summer at the beautiful Scenic Escape Barn in Henderson, MN. The day was a warm […]

  In July, I was present at Caitlin and Tyler’s wedding to coordinate the moments of their very special day.

This past July I had the honor of being present for one of the most heartfelt weddings I have ever witnessed. You see, sometimes a couple is just so absolutely perfect for each other, that the connection is palpable. It sounds so cliché but honestly, if you know Cassandra and you know Clay, you know […]

When something is on your heart and your mind for a very long time, there is probably a reason for that. When you are unsettled about a decision, it’s ok to do just go for it, even if it feels like it’s “too late” or like you might be taking a step backwards…or at least […]

On a warm (very warm) day in late June, Erin and Andy said I DO to a life of endless adventures together. After getting engaged in Santorini, Greece (are you swooning yet…I’m totally swooning) Erin and Andy embarked on a new journey…planning their wedding! Their travel themed wedding was absolutely stunning and I was so […]

I will never forget the first meeting I had at Tandem Bagels in Mankato with Emily and her mother!
