South Indian Wedding Soirée, Minneapolis

Congrats to Priya and Rishi and their 11 event, 4-day wedding!  The couple got married in Minnesota at the Hilton Hotel downtown Minneapolis, the perfect venue to host all their events at one location. The events had a range of 350 to 540 guests at the various events.  The couple’s events included:
Thursday = Mehndi party
Friday = Welcome Lunch and Sangeet
Sunday = Breakfast, Baraat, Ceremony, Lunch, Cocktails, and Dinner
Monday = Brunch (Hilton) and Pooja at the Hindu Temple in Maple Grove.

One of our favorite things they did for their guests was have the videographer construct a “same-day edit” video, thanks to Story of Us Films.  We showcased this video at the reception on Saturday night.  It was the perfect way to show the entire guest attendance all the events they couldn’t attend.  Summer Street Photography has locations in Minneapolis and Boston, the perfect fit for this couple who lives in Boston and hosted their wedding here in Minnesota.

We can’t thank all our vendors for the amazing job they did to create a beautiful and seamless wedding for our South Indian couple!  It certainly takes an experienced and talented fleet of vendors to pull of an 11 event 4-day wedding.  Always a special THANKS to my amazing team!

Wedding Fair: Minnesota’s alternative to a wedding fair

After many years of attending wedding fairs as a vendor, I realized that there is a better way to highlight my skills as a Wedding Planner and educate couples on why to hire one.  Along with my long-time senior assistant, we’ve created the Rare Wedding Affair.  It’s a truly unique alternative to the traditional wedding fair.  My team will usher attendees through an entire wedding environment.  Attendees will progress their way through the ceremony, cocktail area, and dinner reception which is custom designed and styled by my team.

This luxury Affair is for the couple who is looking for a personal fair adventure while meeting the Twin Cities top vendors.  With your TICKET purchase, you will receive a vendor book of the best of the best, cocktails, dinner, a dessert tasting, and chance to win amazing prizes.  The best part of the Rare Wedding Affair is the chance to win a FREE FULL SERVICE WEDDING PLANNING PACKAGE from us at Sunrise Styling (valued at $5000).

TICKETS are limited to maintain the intimacy and one-on-one experience for the attendees.  Tickets and registration ends on May 13th for the June 5, 2016 Affair.

If you’re not around for the first one, stay up to date on the UPCOMING AFFAIRS page for our fall Affairs.  Additionally, we will be hosting our other styles of Affairs in the fall so be sure to check them out.  We have an Affair to suit everyone’s style and needs.  Be sure to like us on the RWA Facebook page and follow us on RWA Pinterest.

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.

Jeanne & Rita: A Ladies celebration

After an intimate wedding ceremony at a labyrinth in the fall of 2013, Jeanne and Rita wanted to celebrate with all their family and friends.  Wanting to incorporate their love for labyrinths, they selected their church which has a labyrinth inlay design on the floor.  We used the various labyrinth designs on the cake and stationery items and placed a giant fabric one for guest to wander through.  Greens, moss and hints of pink defined the space for an outdoor garden/chic style reception.  I built and designed a maze for guests to enter through, mimicking a miniature labyrinth.  Working with these ladies was a complete joy as they were a great referral from a past couple of mine and direct referrals are the best!

Minneapolis local transportation

Thanks to Limo St. Paul for giving us a shout and highlighting Sunrise Styling as one of their wedding planners.  We love doing business with great companies that get us from point A to B.  Check out their services for weddings, sight seeing, sporting events, and more.  What better way to get you and your company around the city for various events with safety and ease, much less in a stylish vehicle.

Aimee & Alec: Ice cream social wedding

Had the joy of working with this couple for their wedding celebration.  I love doing things that don’t mimic the traditional chain of events and this one is a classic example.  The day started with the couple getting ready and their first look photos.  Guest arrived for the ceremony at Loring Park followed by a receiving line and photo of the couple and all their guests on the steps of the Loring Park Community Arts Center.  The couple not wanting a typical sit-down dinner (or lunch for that matter), we created an ice cream social.  Custom desserts, kegs of root beer, and ice cream were enjoyed by everyone.  We also had a live chalk artist creating a drawing of a bumble bee, since the couple keeps bees.  The décor was a blend of outdoor earthy elements, vivid greens and succulents, root beer bottles, and wooden box centerpieces.

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.
