Hiring Sarah was the smartest wedding related decision I could have made! We worked together thoughout the entire year leading up to the big day. Sarah lets you be as involved or as hands-off as you like in all the decisions. She understood my vision for the event and I trusted her to make choices based on our style that I knew we would love.
Although hiring a planner can be expensive, I think you end up saving money in the long run. Based on your budget Sarah will only show you vendors that you can afford. This makes the decision process much less stressful (and way more fun) because you can focus on picking what you want vs. worrying: how much is this going to cost?, is this vendor showing me options that are out of my price range?, are these fees normal? etc. Such a stress relief.
When it came to the rehearsal and day of, I was able to focus on ME! Not on transportation, guests, vendor deliveries, setting up decorations, hair/makeup appointments, timelines, etc. Sarah took care of all of that so I could truly enjoy my wedding day. I heard many compliments from guests saying how well the event was run and how everything went off seamlessly. They were giving me the credit, but in reality it was all Sarah!
I don't know what I would have done without the Sarahs! They were so flexible, helpful, and worth every penny. I was less stressed as soon as I hired them! If I could do it again, I would have paid to have them coordinate everything instead of just the day of. They are wonderful!
Sara made our dream wedding a reality. She brings such a positive energy to wedding planning and helps you get through any stressful moments with ease. Particularly on the day of the wedding, she ensures that you don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying yourself.
I really can't imagine the wedding planning process without Sara!
Worth every penny! So pleased with her work!
Loved working with Sarah! She kept the whole process stress free! She was on top of everything and we really enjoyed y every step along the way.
Right after my friends and family, the first person I called post engagement was Sarah Trotter- and it was the best decision (aside saying “yes to my husband”) that I made throughout wedding planning. Sarah had planned my best friend’s amazing wedding a few years back, so I knew I had to have her when it was my turn too. She was able to help me bring my vision to life, and just “gets” it even when I can’t fully explain what I mean when talking about an idea that I have. Her years of experience and amazing relationships with all of the vendors we worked with was evident and made the process even more enjoyable. She is also so organized and made it easy for me to keep track of everything I needed to do throughout the entire process. On my wedding day, I was cool as a cucumber because I knew she would take care of everything- and she did not disappoint. I will miss emailing with her and meeting with her and would highly recommend her to anyone starting the wedding planning process! She truly is the best.
One of the best decisions we made was hiring Sarah as our day-of wedding planner. My husband and I were able to fully enjoy our wedding day without any worries. She's a pleasure to work with, amazing at her job and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met - I’m so happy we chose her!
I found Lasting Impressions just by doing a Google search and I sent an email through the website. Sarah responded right away! We knew we HAD to have a planner because we lived out of state and I didn't know where to begin.
From the moment we met Sarah, I felt completely at ease! She makes the entire process so effortless. Our wedding was EVERYTHING we wanted and so much more. It truly was a dream come true and it would not have been possible without Sarah!
Sarah Trotter (Lasting Impressions) is the BEST in the business!! She is creative, organized, caring and knows everything there is to know about throwing a gorgeous wedding! We are so thankful she was there to help us throughout the process! My wedding was even more magical than we could have dreamed of! Thank you!!!!!
Sarah is the sweetest person and an incredibly experienced wedding planner! If you are looking to create the wedding day of your dreams and want planning to be stress-free, Sarah is your gal!
Hiring Sarah/Lasting Impressions was the best decision we made. We hired them for "day of" service. She was very responsive to each of my questions leading up to the wedding. The week and day of the wedding, I honestly did not have to be concerned about anything. For peace of mind, hire Lasting Impressions.
Lasting Impressions for the win. They are wedding wizards. I chose the day-of package which included a perfect amount of support leading up to my wedding that helped keep me organized and sane. They are quick to respond, full of ideas and completely on your side. With just the day-of package, they provided several suggestions and tips that ended up being really valuable to me. Our day-of coordinator, Erika, was a sweetheart and ninja all in one. Erika took care of our every need (and I'm sure plenty of things I have no idea about!) There was another coordinator behind the scenes setting up the reception site and she was clearly amazing, too. They perfectly translated my vision, complicated seating chart, and many vendors into a beautiful scene...and at a brand new venue no less. I was a carefree in-the-moment bride - amazing. Find a way to fit them into your budget.
Sarah is amazing! We planned our wedding long distance and hired her for Design + Day Of services. I don't know what we would have done without her. She answered countless emails over 10+ months, gave us great advice, helped us pull off the perfect look and feel for our intercultural wedding, and made sure everything ran smoothly on our big day -- down to procuring a backup officiant when ours was stuck in traffic! One thing I particularly noticed during the planning process was how much our other vendors liked and respected her. As soon as they heard we were working with Sarah, they said, "Oh, then you are in great hands!" And we were. She is extremely organized, competent, kind, and has a great sense of humor -- all qualities that matter when you are working with someone who is helping you plan the most important day of your life! The only regret I have is not booking her full wedding package - she is that awesome! If you're planning a Minneapolis wedding, lock down your date with Sarah as soon as possible! It will be one of the best wedding decisions you make!
I would highly recommend Lasting Impressions!! Our event was fabulous! Sarah and her staff did the heavy lifting, we enjoyed our daughter's special day! All the planning and details were taken care of and executed by Lasting Impressions flawlessly. We enjoyed our day with family and friends!
Dear future Mr. and Mrs. ....
When we first started to plan our wedding.. I have to admit I was overwhelmed with choices and details! However, with one sit down with Sarah Trotter I immediately felt confident that our day would be fabulous and stress free. Hiring last impressions planner Sarah Trotter was the best decision we made! She made the planning process smooth and enjoyable. From the major details to the final moments when Sabrina took over as our event coordinator.. I was impressed and thankful! I can't thank you all enough! If you are looking for a coordinator or even thinking about it! GIVE them a shot, you won't regret it!!!!!

Sarah Trotter is hands down, without question, THEE BEST investment we made in our wedding. We had a vision of what we wanted and from day one, Sarah understood that vision and executed it beautifully. Our wedding was incredibly challenging for a planner, with a tent that needed to be scaled over 30 feet off the ground at our parents' home, bringing in vendors off site from Minneapolis to La Crosse, and arranging transportation/shuttles for 300 guests to and from the ceremony and reception sites. Sarah orchestrated everything so well that there was truly not a hiccup in our day (and if there was, she would have made sure we didn't know about it!!). Throughout the planning process, Sarah took on many tasks on her own and brought her work home to complete lots of little projects for our wedding - I loved getting picture messages of her sons helping out spray painting our monogram, framing our mirrored seating chart, etc. Our wedding turned out to be a real life fairy tale. The tent looked like something out of a magazine, it was above and beyond what we ever could have expected and that is all owed to Sarah and the fabulous team that she put together for us. My husband and I were truly able to sit back and enjoy our wedding day without a worry - I was so calm and relaxed the whole day because Sarah took such great care of us and I knew the day would run smoothly. Sarah became a friend to me this past year and although I am thrilled to finally be married to my husband, I am so sad that the wedding is over because I don't get to talk with her every day! She made the experience of being a bride exciting, fun, stress-free and truly the most special time in my life. Thank you Sarah for making our dreams come true!! You will NOT regret signing her on for your wedding!!! :)
Sarah and her team did an absolutely WONDERFUL job planning and coordinating our wedding. Everything went off without a hitch! She had every single detail covered, from having everything for the room flip, to dropping off our wedding gifts at our house after the reception. It truly allowed us to have a magical day, because we knew that Sarah and her team (we worked with Kate on the day of, who was AMAZING!) would have everything under control. I was pretty hands on with the planning and coordinating, and Sarah helped me stay organized and on budget!
Much like everyone else, we thought that hiring Sarah to work with us was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. We had our wedding at Nicollet Island Pavillion but live in Boston, so having a planner to help given that we weren't local, was a definite must. Of all the planners we met with, Sarah was not only the most experienced and confident in her product, but she also had the best taste and style.
We did the Month-of-planning + Decoration services package and couldn't have been happier. She helped us figure out what we should rent vs buy to make the space look exactly the way we wanted. And more importantly, she helped us figure out what we wanted before we even figured it out ourselves. It was like she was a mind reader - she was able to take my pinterest board and my suggestions and turn it into a beautiful and tasteful look the day of the wedding.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best services from a professional and highly responsive wedding planner!
Sarah and her team were absolutely amazing! She was so responsive and focused on making our wedding day perfect. Sarah was super easy to talk to and bounce around ideas with, and she was very detail-oriented. Her services actually made her seem like a close friend helping with our wedding day, rather than a vendor we had hired. She did everything possible to ensure even the smallest details were covered. Our wedding day had a minor hiccup (thanks to a few inconsiderate guests) that Sarah handled like a champ and made sure there was no hassle for my husband and me! She was even able to help us keep our cool with her witty humor. We can say with all certainty that Sarah and Lasting Impressions' planning and services created a wonderful wedding day for us that was everything and more that we hoped it would be!
Hiring Sarah as our wedding planner was the BEST decision we made! She is absolutely wonderful to work with. We enjoyed every minute and she made it so easy for us considering we lived out of state. She was always so happy and excited about our wedding- she truly understood our vision and what we loved and wanted on our special day!! She does it ALL! She makes things happen from the tiniest detail to the biggest decisions. She made our day stress free and it was the best money we could have ever spent! We loved her!
Sarah Trotter at Lasting impression is great! We changed our mind on what type of chair covers and the number of them, a few times, and she was super flexible. She by far had the best price on the chair covers we wanted. She came to the venue and set them up for us. they looked absolutely fantastic and really dressed the room up! We chose to return them ourselves so we wouldn't have to pay a take down/disassemble return fee. The return was super easy and convenient! (Note the charge for them to take them down and pick them up was not unreasonable, we were just on a really tight budget) :-)
Sarah Trotter is the wedding planner you need to hire. She is a perfectionist! Sarah knows her way through the Minneapolis wedding industry. Her energy and personality made the planning truly enjoyable. She is quick to respond to e-mails. Sarah handles everything with such ease and competence. Everything ran smoothly and looked stunning on the wedding day because of Sarah's professionalism, and attention to every little detail!
Sarah is an AMAZING wedding planner. She is always happy which is very refreshing ☺ She does it ALL, from the tiniest of details to dealing with any complications that (may) arise. I am pleased to say I did not worry about ONE thing on my wedding day thanks to the incredible Sarah Trotter. You are sure to have a flawless day with Sarah working behind the scenes. I am so thankful that she helped us pull off such an incredible wedding day. Money VERY well spent!!
WOW...where do I begin. Words cant even express how thankful I am that we hired Sarah from Lasting Impressions Weddings to help plan and coordinate our whole wedding from start to finish. From day 1 she was so great. We immediately clicked. She is not only SO talented and passionate at what she does but she is also so fun and it was great to get to know her and i already miss talking to her on a weekly basis (and its only been a week). She helped guide us through the whole planning process and kept us on track with the timeline and budget, even during those times when i wanted to go over our budget. She exceeded all expectations we had for our wedding. My mom and I would have been lost with out her. She was able to take our ideas and run with them and point us in the right direction with the best vendors to use. The entire planning process was stress free and very enjoyable. On the day of the wedding we were able to enjoy the whole day and not worry about a SINGLE thing. She had everything under control and everything was FLAWLESS. When my husband and I walked into our reception we were blown away and all of our expectations were exceeded. I was in tears with how everything turned out. She turned all of our wedding dreams into a reality and we could not be more grateful to have had her by our side tthrough the entire procces and what she did for us. Now I forever get to remember through our amazing photos of how gorgeous and perfect every detail was because of you...THANK YOU SARAH. I could keep going and going but she is truly the BEST and I would highly recommend her to any bride!
Sarah Trotter is everything you want in a wedding planner. I had a specific vision for my wedding and Sarah made it become a reality. Her energy and personality made the tedious wedding planning process truly enjoyable. She is detail oriented and a careful listener. She is incredibly responsive to any question or need you have, even if I have asked the question two or three times. :) Sarah is very “in the know” when it comes to all aspects of a wedding and she accurately provides you with what works and what doesn’t. I would run several ideas her way and always appreciated her honesty and knowledgeable opinion.
I was so grateful to have Sarah there on the day of my wedding. She kept all the family and wedding party on time, calm, and organized. She works closely with each vendor to make ensure every details runs smoothly. My in-laws were in awe of Sarah; they couldn’t get over how helpful, efficient, and friendly Sarah was on the wedding weekend. Sarah is worth every penny. I am so grateful for Sarah Trotter with Lasting Impressions.
