Real Wedding: Stephanie & Ben

Bride & Groom-6.jpg

This week we're highlighting Stephanie & Ben's wedding that took place on September 30, 2017 at Transfiguration Church and Radisson Blu-Minneapolis. Stephanie & Ben came to us in the fall of 2016 when they were still about a year out from the big day. We grabbed coffee at Starbucks and talked all about their upcoming wedding! They had most of their vendors secured, but only one thing was missing -- a day of coordinator. Luckily, they found us! As the months went by we keep in touch every few months via email. That's when we found ourselves on August 30, 2017 -- ONE MONTH prior to their big day! We met for coffee a few short weeks later at the same Starbucks as the previous year. Let me tell you this -- it felt like no time had passed at all. A year went by in the blink of an eye, that's for sure! We quickly caught up and talked all about the wedding details, confirmed the wedding day timeline, and went on our way for the evening.

Fast forward to September 30, 2017. Finally, the big day was here! While Stephanie, Ben and their family and friends we're getting ready and headed to the church for the ceremony, our team arrived at the Radisson Blu for the reception setup. Meanwhile, the band arrived and starting setting up their equipment and doing a sound check, the florist arrived to deliver flowers and setup the centerpieces, and the catering staff at Radisson Blu set all the place settings. Our team set up the place cards, menu cards, and other final touches. The reception came together beautifully! A few hours passed and guests starting arriving at the Radisson Blu. That's when dinner and speeches kicked off a wonderful evening followed by an awesome performance by The R Factor! Stephanie & Ben -- CONGRATULATIONS! Wishing you many years of love, laughter & happiness.
