After many years of working with Create Catering in Minneapolis, Chef Corey Meier has become a great friend outside of just working on weddings and events together. After finding out and meeting his Korean fiancé, it become a no brainer that I would help plan his wedding. With a love for books, the wedding was hosted at the JJ Hill Library. Lisa didn’t have a clear vision on the style and décor, other than just wanting navy and green for her colors. Trusting my creativity, I was given free range to design their wedding.
An intimate group of guests attended the ceremony which was styled with lanterns lining the aisle and framed by the columns in the library. The reception linens were the French blue lattice, blue stripe, satin kiwi, and burlap runners. Natural succulents, exotic green blooms, and white flowers were spread down the 65-person regal table in eco-friendly containers. The Create Catering team provided a custom menu which was served family style to the guests. They also provided the desserts of mini cupcakes, macaroons, and tartlets. One of my favorite dessert displays – manzanita branches and succulents sat on top of an iron stand, wrapped in burlap, moss, and hanging succulents. Wood boxes and books dressed the rest of the table to provide texture and dimension.
Additional guests were invited after dinner to dance and enjoy late night snacks among the up-lit dance floor. The perfect end to a couple who put their trust in my design creativity and planning management. It’s always wonderful to work with other event professionals on their special day!!!
