Twin Cities Wedding Planning

Heather + Mike


This couple is a lot of fun. They both LOVE to golf and both have small town backgrounds. Creating a Brand Plan for this couple was a little challenging in that they wanted to bring in golf as a vibe without it feeling like a golf-themed birthday party. They also wanted to honor their upbringing and make everyone feel at home, whether from the “big cities” of Minneapolis and St. Paul or from small-town Iowa.

We were able to create a logo for Heather and Mike that was inspired by the golf ball. They chose the lower-case “b” to give their logo a modern touch. We also brought in the golf inspiration on the candy buffet. The couple had tees made with their names and date on them. We spread these around the candy buffet table for guests to take and hopefully use on their next round of golf.

Their roots were well represented as well. The wedding and reception venue is a little bit country. The hotel, The Wildwood Lodge, offers up a modern-country motif. The Pavilion {wedding/reception location} has exposed ductwork with rough-sawn wood. Their cocktail hour was held just down the hall in a farm themed space. It worked perfectly as a transition space between the wedding and reception. Even the escort cards had got in on the act, as cows, chickens, carrots and smiley faces to indicated meal choice.

Tiffhanie + Kevin

This bride hadn't ever been to a wedding prior to getting engaged and planning her own wedding. {how cool is that for this planner?}

The two things Kevin and Tiffhanie knew when they began the planning process was that they wanted to marry each other and they wanted to get married on the University of Minnesota Campus.    {they met each other while attending the University of Minnesota.  Go Gophers!}

 Tiffhanie is an American born Chinese and Kevin is a Chinese born American. We created a “fusion” themed wedding. They wanted to mix in both cultures with a modern flare.
