Royal Opulence at the Semple Mansion

September 17th, 2013

Remember Sofia Coppola’s installment of Marie Antoinette staring Kirsten Dunst? Who could forget the lavish set design, over-the-top costumes, and decadent dessert tables in every scene? These rich and luxurious details inspired our designs for Mani and Erick’s June 15th wedding at the Semple Mansion. Playing off the mansion’s opulent chandeliers, distinctive crown-molding, and rich dark woods, we created a sumptuous setting for the couple’s I-do’s.

For the main event, Mani clutched a lush bouquet of pink peonies, lavender roses, blush roses, burgundy peonies, and a collection of vintage broaches; the perfect accent to Mani’s  stunning ivory fit and flare gown.

The ceremony was distinguished by gorgeous antiqued candelabras topped with dramatic arrangements of pink peonies, blush and pink roses, rich burgundy peonies, and hanging amaranthus. In addition ornate gold candle sticks held petite posies of lavender, blush, and burgundy flowers. Smaller guest tables were adorned with clouds of metallic baby’s breath and blush sweetheart roses. The over-all opulent look was complete with linens, chairs, and chargers by Apres Party and Tent Rental. As always, Lasting Impressions Weddings provided sensational planning for Mani and Erick’s big day.

lush and lavished

August 29th, 2012

The stunning St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis was the perfect
place for Jessica and Pete’s romantic wedding on August 4, 2012. The
classic architecture was highlighted with copious white and cream florals
and our new “can’t get enough of” decadent ivory satin ribbon. Jessica
walked down the aisle surrounded by lush posies of hydrangea and roses
while clutching her own bouquet of fragrant roses and velvety lambs ear.
After the I do’s guests wined and dined at the beautiful Semple Mansion in
Minneapolis. The dining room was adorned by lush arrangements atop bold
trumpet vases, while chrome containers overflowed with lavish compositions
of white flowers and silver succulents. Champagne and pewter linens from
Apre Party Rental finished the look, while soft candle light sealed the
romantic ambiance. Wonderfully coordinated by Lasting Impressions, this sensational
celebration was a thrill to be a part of.
