Landmark Center Wedding | Tara + Kai



Landmark Center Wedding in St Paul, Minnesota

Tara & Kai’s Landmark Center Wedding was a beautiful day full of intentional moments. They truly made their wedding day their own and not following the “traditional” wedding day elements!

The Engagement

Tara and Kai were fortunate enough to be gifted Kai’s grandmother’s ring, which they used to design a custom engagement ring together. So, Tara knew that a proposal was coming, but didn’t know when. Kai decided to propose while visiting Tara’s family in Pennsylvania for Christmas in December 2022.

While finishing some last minute shopping at Peddler’s Village (a quaint, colonial shopping area with lots of Christmas decorations), Kai looked for a good spot to pop the question. Before leaving, Tara wanted to take a photo near the big Christmas tree inside the gazebo at the center of the village, but Kai suggested they wait in line to get a photo at a prime location right up front (suspicious, since he’s general not a fan of photos!)

When it was their turn, instead of posing for the photos, Kai got down on one knee and asked Tara to marry him. She said yes, and the crowed of strangers surrounding them clapped and cheered!

Our Services

When Tara and Kai inquired with us about their Landmark Center wedding, they really were looking for someone execute their day-of plan, communicate with vendors, manage the timeline and be the point of contact during the day. Which is everything (plus more!) that our wedding management package includes! (you can find all of our services here)

To them, they didn’t see their wedding as a time to “put on a show” but to spend time with/celebrate with the people they love, which a lot of were traveling from out of state.

They kept their decor minimal as the Landmark Center is already a beautiful venue in itself!

We truly loved working with Tara & Kai for their wedding day and wish them all the best!

“Working with Hanna was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. We chose her wedding day management service, but even before the day, she offered so many valuable resources (spreadsheets, budgets, timelines, etc) that made us feel so prepared and stress-free. Her communication was reliable, clear, and professional. As promised, she and her team served as point-people for our vendors and guests so that we could be truly present to enjoy our event.

And, we got to eat our dinner!!! So many people told us we’d be too busy to eat dinner, but I truly believe Hanna’s expert coordination gave us the time to not only eat, but enjoy conversation with our family and friends. At the end of the night, Hanna went above and beyond cleaning up and making sure all our belongings got where they needed to be. I recommend Hanna Marie Events without any hesitation!!”
