After the excitement of a beautifully timed proposal comes a busy season of research and decision-making. Many couples feel the pressure to plan their wedding while continuing to work, nurture their relationships, and build toward their dreams.
Whether you’ve already tried planning or knew from day one you needed additional support (most couples do!), you’ll likely be looking for a wedding planner and designer.
We’re lucky to have such a wonderfully talented group of planners in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. With so many options to choose from, you may be wondering if we could be a match.
Why couples work with us as their Minneapolis Wedding Designer
As you discern who your best fit will be, think about what’s most important to you.
While it may be tempting to choose a wedding designer based solely on their portfolio of work or aesthetic preferences, it’s best to get a sense of who they are. Here’s a quick introduction to who we are and what we care about.
We’re passionate artisans
At de Vasco’s Daughters, we proudly come from a long line of artisans. Our name is inspired by my grandmother Shirley Maree Vasconcellos who signed all of her artwork with a “de Vasco” signature.
Inspired by her breadth of work, I set out to bring my background in artistry, design, and styling to the wedding industry years ago. If interested, you can read more of our origin story.
What began as a passion for creating intimate, immersive experiences for my loved ones to enjoy—including my daughter’s engagement party—turned into a life-giving business that employs eleven other incredibly talented women (and counting!).
As a team of artisans, we explore our collective creativity when creating luxurious wedding designs. Our designs are rich in detail, ensuring no two designs are ever the same. With intentional design and meticulous planning, we stop at nothing to create your dream day.
We design uniquely beautiful weddings
Rather than follow inspiration or trends from wedding magazines or Pinterest, we take the time to truly get to know each of our couples. We learn about what’s most important to them—their core values, favorite memories, design preferences, and beyond.
We believe the most memorable and meaningful weddings are uniquely beautiful.
Where one might marvel at a gorgeous installation with thousands of paper cranes, our bride Sonia sees her grandmother’s life honored on her big day. Other guests may enjoy a Paloma drink at the cocktail hour, but our bride Sara sees a cocktail named after her sweet pup.
Designing a uniquely beautiful wedding goes beyond the careful selection of table linens, rentals, and even wedding dresses (although that part is especially fun!). We focus on translating your legacy of love into intentional designs that delight you and your guests.
“Krista has a true eye for design and did an exceptional job bringing all the inspiration together in a cohesive, stunning way,” our bride Molly says. “We were amazed at how it all turned out when we stepped into the venue on our wedding day.”
We love incorporating personal details and special memories into our intentional wedding designs. It’s not only what we do best; it’s why we’re here. You can trust us to create a uniquely beautiful wedding you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
We create high-touch experiences
We differ from other Minneapolis wedding designers in our commitment to a high-touch client experience. This means we provide a more hands-on, personalized service to our couples.
It’s also why we take on a select number of weddings each year so we can give our couples the best of our energy and talents.
We recognize you need a visionary to create your wedding design and a planner with an eye for detail, but you also need a guide through the process.
This may be your first time getting married but we’ve been here before and know what to expect. We can help you avoid the pitfalls, confusion, unnecessary stress, and headaches that sometimes come with planning your wedding. You can enjoy all the best parts of the process and leave the rest to us.
Our bride Sonia says, “Krista remains calm, level-headed, and proactive in a process that can contain stressful moments. Beyond that, she is a wonderful voice of guidance, and her joy at a couple’s day coming together is always incredibly genuine.”
We go beyond what’s typically expected of a wedding designer in giving you a high-touch experience.
Here’s what a few of our brides had to say about our boutique-level service:
- “Krista even picked up my dessert of donuts on the way to the venue!” -Mackenzie
- “She even managed to get blue icing out of my dress!” -Talia
- “Krista sewed a bridesmaid’s dress back together.” -Raleigh
- “Krista helped me put together MOH proposal boxes for my sisters.” -Katie
We offer every couple unlimited communication within our full planning and design package. Rest assured we’ll be readily available to answer any questions and help you with every detail of your wedding day.
We’re here to make luxury more approachable
If “luxury” brings to mind images that feel stuffy or impersonal, we invite you to reimagine the word. To us, a luxuriously designed wedding is rich in detail without sacrificing personality.
We aim to make luxury accessible and approachable for today’s modern bride. It’s not about selecting the most expensive details but rather ensuring no detail goes unnoticed.
“de Vasco’s Daughters embodies high-end and luxury, everything from the name to the final event design,” team member Meagan says. It’s what we’re known for, and we want to bring this approachable luxury to your wedding day.
If you want to work with passionate artisans who specialize in creating uniquely beautiful weddings with a high-touch experience, you’ve met your perfect match. Schedule a call with us and let’s begin dreaming about your big day!
