Some couples seem as though they've been married for years when I meet them and help them plan their wedding. They seem to have a good flow, working off of one another, around each other's weaknesses and amplifying one another's strengths.

Amy and Eric are totally that couple, having first a long distance relationship and then allowing their love to draw them closer, their wedding day was many years in the making.

Amy was just like you are during the planning process, a little timid to pull the trigger on some wedding decisions, but steadfast  and decisive on others. 

Eric was a silent supporter in the backdrop, but had a strong presence on the wedding day.

Their calm confidence made it all the better for us vendors involved, and I felt friendships forming before the day was even here. You see, when your vendors are friends they get along, and when they get along, they are able to shine - to perform at their very best! And while some wedding vendors like to fly solo, personally I like it when we all team up to be on your side, to give you the best wedding you can possibly have.

You can see it in the pictures that Alice took, the ease and calm of the day. Verizon Wireless Center contains a historic vault, a complete gemstone. A showpiece of Minnesota and Mankato history. Personally, I'm a sucker for carved wood and stained glass. Beyond that I love when there is an emphasis on the love between a couple. It isn't about all the details or the flowers, or the dessert. Those things are all lovely, sometimes essential, but first comes love.


  1. A small wedding party makes getting ready practically a breeze.
  2. Using the hotel balcony and a drone, you can have a cinematic first look.
  3. Kabuki streamers are always a fun way to walk down the aisle.
  4. With the right DJ your guests will be on the dance floor until closing time.
  5. Fast dinner service means happy guests.
  6. Getting creative with the kissing game can lead to hilarity.

Amy + Eric got to their wedding day by planning with a professional and keeping things from getting overwhelmingly complicated. Get the same help they had here:
