Lauren & Dillon were married on a sunny, September day.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but everything was perfect from start to finish.  Lauren & Dillon were the definition of classic beauty and their celebration was so much fun!!  Week after week I’m lucky to work with amazing vendors, and this stunning soiree was no exception. Thanks to Sarah of Lasting Impressions Weddings for her impeccable execution of the day.  Thanks also to Emily J Hair + Makeup, Martha’s Gardens for the florals, Magnificent Milestones for the stationery suite, and last but definitely not least, the amazing staff at Aria.  Congrats to the happy couple!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!

Sophie & Andy were married at the beautiful Calhoun Beach Club overlooking Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. Friends and family came from all over the world to celebrate, many of the guests coming from Sophie’s family’s native England. Their day also included many nods to the culture including many of the women donning fascinators.  Thanks to Sarah from Lasting Impressions for coordinating this incredible day!

  • Jessica - So so beautiful! This wedding was not only gorgeous, but it was also SO much fun! Loved every minute!

  • Denae Brennan - Laura – incredible photos! SUCH a beautiful day!

  • Sabrina - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! These are just INCREDIBLE!!

  • Ariana - Hey Wedding Lady - What a gorgeous day! Those dahlias by Munster Rose are incredible with the silver sequins!

Everything about Annie & Michael’s wedding day was absolute perfection.  The words for an equally perfect blog post are failing me, so instead I’ll leave you with some (okay, many!) images from their day.  It’s hard to miss their adorable Frenchie, Lyla, who made flew all the way from LA with Mom & Dad to not only steal the show during photos, but to join the newly married couple for their walk down the aisle after they were pronounced man and wife!  The Semple Mansion was the perfect backdrop for the day.  Special thanks to the amazing vendors including Annie’s mom, who happens to be an incredible florist and owner of Celebrations Floral Design, Sarah of Lasting Impressions Weddings, John from Vibrant Film (you must check out Annie & Michael’s brilliant wedding day film here!!  Get your tissues ready), and the delightful team at Cocoa & Fig for the drool worthy dessert table.  ENJOY!

  • Butch McCartney - Beautiful wedding, Laura! … But their little Frenchie sprinting down the aisle to them is PRICELESS!! Love those photos!

  • FALL/WINTER 2014 PUBLICATIONS » Laura Ivanova Photography | FILM WEDDING & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER IN MINNEAPOLIS & NEW YORK CITY - […] Annie & Michael’s bright and colorful August 2013 soiree, also expertly coordinated by Sarah at Lasting Impressions was featured in one of my favorite local magazines, Minnesota Bride.  For those that didn’t already know, I’m a huge dog lover, so Annie & Michael’s wedding day will forever be extra special to me because they so thoughtfully incorporated their beloved Frenchie, Lyla!  In fact, in the hundreds of weddings I’ve photographed, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog race up the aisle to the newly pronounced husband and wife at the end of the ceremony!  Thanks to the Semple Mansion, not only for serving as the venue for this incredible day, but allowing Lyla to be a part of it all!  The amazing florals are by the bride’s mother, who just happens to be the designer behind Celebrations Floral. And, if you have a few minutes, be sure to check out Annie & Michael’s film by my favorite, John Hoel of Vibrant Film. He is amazing! […]
