About Lakeside

At Lakeside Weddings + Events we believe that every occasion should tell a story.  We are here to ensure that your wedding is styled uniquely to you so that it tells YOUR story.  I've always had a passion for organizing and planning, and love to share those qualities by providing stress-free experiences. Ones where my clients do not have to worry about the preparations and details.  I started Lakeside Weddings + Events because at the end of the day I am a hopeless romantic, and I am incredibly fortunate to work with remarkable people while doing what I love to do.

The Wedding Aisle

Meet the Team


Laurie Asplund

Owner + Senior Lead Planner
After years of planning events and weddings during my spare time, I decided to follow my passion and open my own Weddings + Events firm. I founded Lakeside Weddings + Events after repeatedly being told by friends that I needed to be paid for my services.  Being a Certified Project Manager, I bring the skills of planning and experience of managing budgets to every event that I plan. I am detail obsessed and driven to make every event a win for my clients. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my children, my dog, or on one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Morgan Asplund

Lead Planner
Social media guru, dog lover, and young professional. Morgan is an 'it's all in the details type,' who is always looking for ways to make every celebration just that much more special. She brings a positive attitude to every situation she encounters, and is ready to jump both feet into everything she does. She loves bringing every bride's perfect day to life! When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with friends + her dog, exploring Minneapolis, or traveling whenever given the opportunity. She's always on the lookout for where she can travel to next!
