Brainerd Service League Holiday Sip & Shop 2015 at The NP Event Space

Our space was full of Christmas spirit in early December for the Brainerd Service League Annual Holiday Sip & Shop.  Vendor booths were beautifully decorated and shoppers enjoyed food and beverage from both Morey's and Prairie Bay.  Enjoy some photos below of shoppers and holiday spirit (and advance apologies for the number of flower images...I COULDN'T HELP myself!...arrangements by Bloom Designs).

I always love seeing each different event direction and they didn't dissapoint - The Brainerd Service league organized a very well attended, beautiful event.  (:

Brighter Days Foundation | 5th Annual Gala and Silent Auction

Brighter Days Foundation | 5th Annual Gala and Silent Auction

This past Friday we had the honor of having the Brighter Days Foundation 5th Annual Gala and Silent Auction in our space.  If you are unfamiliar with their organization, please visit their facebook page and website.  They are doing amazing things for local families!

From their website:

The Brighter Days Foundation creates a "surprise" visit for children with chronic or long-term illnesses. We purchase gifts for the child, their siblings and parents. Our goal is to take their focus off of the daily struggles and onto something fun and uplifting. These children deal with so much more than the average child so the impact of our giveaways is so important not only to the child, but to their entire family.

Dr. Jeanni R. Foss, DDS of Edgewood Dental is the President and Founder of the organization and she and her team held an incredible event.  Hosting such a large and successful event is no easy feat, but the final product was to the guests delight.  Gorgeous decor, delicious food and great company all supplemented the true meaning of the evening - supporting and raising funds to surprise the children and their families with joy during a very difficult time.

Billie & Jeremy | August Wedding

Billie & Jeremy | August Wedding

I LOVE Billie and Jeremy.  Seriously.  They are very individual, sweet and have so much love.  What I really love about our couples is that they are all different and so wonderful at the same time. 

When I first met with Billie and Jeremy they talked of having a steampunk themed wedding.  It fit perfectly with the idea of minimal decor, accenting the building and property itself.  Although their final wedding decor turned into more of a mix of steampunk with classic Victorian and a slight industrial feel, it was still so perfect.  And of course, I can't NOT mention Billie's incredibly beautiful dress.  The lace, the ruffle, the flow...seriously gorgeous!

They had an overcast, massive chance of rain day.  We took a risk and it started to rain just as Billie's father walked her down the aisle.  Just as the ceremony was finishing, the skies opened up to the most beautiful sunshine that landed right on Billie and Jeremy.  It was meant to be.  If you look closely, you can see the wet ground amidst sun just after their first kiss! 

They had lots of fun touches including an old-fashioned photobooth, signature drink station, pie dessert bar, vintage cameras and steampunk themed decor that was mostly made by the bride.  With delicious appetizers and dinner served by Prairie Bay and great company, it was a perfect day!

The Most Adorable Part of a Wedding

I had big plans during a recent shoot to get the perfect shot of three adorable children with the bride.  To say it didn't work out is quite the understatement...sometimes little kiddos are tired, nervous, cold or just not in the mood.  All of those might have played a part during this shoot, but it is all okay because we still ended with some of my favorite images.  There is a lot of pretty and also a heavy dose of real life here with small children.

The little adorable outfits are all from babygap with BEAUTIFUL flowers by Kate Kuepers of Bloom Designs.  Our goal was pretty with pops of color and seriously...the flowers Kate picked and the vintage yellow silk-backed velvet were a perfect combination.

Enjoy these cuties!!  (and take a sneak peek of the bride and her bridal bouquet at the end of this post!)  All photography by Aimee Jobe.

And a little preview of the bride and her bouquet...LOVE!

And this is Kate.  She is the one responsible for all these beautiful flowers in my posts lately and she is pretty much the most awesome florist ever.

We are proud to have her as our preferred florist at The NP Event Space.  Besides flowers, her vision with design and decor are equally amazing!

Happy Halloween from The NP Event Space to you!!!  Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year!  I ran across this STUNNING Platinum by Priscilla of Boston wedding dress this year and had to plan a styled shoot around it.  The gown is one of the most beautiful and glamorous I have ever seen...from the crystals to the train to the satin, it is incredible!

The fabulous Kate Kuepers of Bloom Designs did the incredible bouquet and floral arrangements.

Our First Wedding!

Our First Wedding!

This weekend was the first ever wedding at The NP Event Space.  As we rushed to finish the build out in the building (we didn't get final okay to start until May 14...it has been a very busy three weeks to say the least!), Adam and Amanda's family helped complete some last minute work that really saved the day!  I couldn't be more thankful for how much they pitched in to make things perfect.  I CAN'T WAIT to see the images from their photographer...I am sure they will be amazing!  Until then, here are a few I was able to take during the day.  CONGRATS A + A!  You will forever be remembered as our first wedding at the (almost) end of the chaos!

About The NP Event Space : Our Branding Experience

When it came time to brand our new space, we knew Nikki with Akula Kreative was the one to do it.  I actually had sent her an inquiry and my heart dropped when she was currently booked...but then her next line revealed she would so graciously squeeze us in!!  I couldn't have been more happy that day!

The reason Nikki is so booked is basically because she is a creative genius.  This is the second time I have used her services (read about the first time here) and I have been SO, SO HAPPY both times.  She is the only brander, designer, graphic extraordinaire person who I have ever worked with where I have been 100% happy with the end result.

I gave her some images of the buildings and some thoughts and ideas and with a few minor changes we ended up with a logo, pattern, and total brand feel that couldn't be more perfect!  From the industrial feeling logo with a touch of femininity to the anvil based pattern, all of the design elements put me over the moon!

Here is our final brand sheet:

 

And how good does this little package make you feel?  This sweet wrapping and ribbon included our files on USB inside a little aluminum box.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  Some serious care and superior excellent service are both abundant in her work.
