Tanya & Jay: Wedding on the bank of the Mississippi

Love planning and working on weddings for friends.  Jay was my gymnastic coach back in high school and thanks to social media, we’ve stayed in touch over the years.  He came to me with needs to plan his wedding to Tanya and of course I was on board to help.

Wanting an intimate celebration, the ceremony was held at the bride’s childhood home in St. Paul.  Set right off the Mississippi river, it was a perfect location.  The tent was placed in the front yard and we placed just enough sidewalls to mask some of the noise from cards driving by.  Guests enjoyed an afternoon tea with delectables before the ceremony.  The Father of the Bride and Tanya arrived in style on a tandem bike for the processional.  The ceremony was a beautiful commitment full of personal touches: a friend played the harp, Nikka the flower girl was Tanya’s parents dog, Jackson the ring bearer was Tanya and Jay’s dog, and the Officiant was a family friend.  After the “I DO,” Tanya and Jay escaped on the tandem bike, recessing their way down the river boulevard.

Guests were ushered to the back yard among the MOB’s picturesque gardens and landscaping.  They wandered among the gardens with a glass of champagne and heard toasts from the family.  The reception was held at the Highland Grill, one of the couple’s favorite dinning places.  We rented out the entire restaurant which was the perfect size for their intimate celebration.  Families sat in booths and tables and dined on a custom menu as Tanya and Jay wanted to maintain the family style experience.  The couple even provided a special dinner for the ring bearer who patiently sat outside the front door.  The evening ended just after dusk so the couple could ride their tandem bike home with Jackson.  A truly wonderful celebration with an old friend and cheers to me for gaining a new friend in Tanya!

Lisa & Corey: Korean meets Caterer

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!!!

Minnesota Stadium Celebration

For the third year – I was able to help my Client in Edina host another theatrical event.  This year’s play theme was the new Vikings stadium.  Though we didn’t have gold and purple décor, we did incorporate a vibrant colors with an edgy flare and some sequined linens.  The food was another amazing feast provided by Create Catering.  Less snow this year, but I know the temp was colder than last year.  Cheers to repeat Clients and the new Vikings stadium.

A Broadway Celebration

For the second year, Sunrise Styling planned a celebration for our Client at his home in Edina, Minnesota.  The event had Jeffery Hatcher (playwright and screen writer) to produce a play and showcase the production during the evening.  With the help from the Children’s Theatre acting staff, additional guests from the event played small parts in the play… which was a twist on “Adam and Eve”.

Following the true art of Broadway – the linens and décor were as dazzling as the lights of Broadway.  Create Catering won over the guests with upscale food stations, butler passed hors d’oeuvres, and a fine selection of wine.  From the red carpet and Valet to the last morsel of dessert, all the guests raved about the gathering on a cold winter day.  We look forward to the next event at the Edina home with our team of VIP vendors.
