William + Nathan

The reception and ceremony were both at the Lowertown Event Center, the venue was perfect for their vision. All the exposed stone walls, and beams with the crystal chandeliers a perfect mix of rustic and class. The ceremony had a fantastic accent wall with worn wood, with tall pristine cylinders full of curly willow and calla lilies.


 

From the masculine table linens to the prohibition style bottles, luscious fabric wrapped vases and tall gilded candle sticks with a rounded arrangement on top. The colors all worked wonderfully in the space, and every table was different, but everything was lush and rich. And no detail was missed, thanks to Sunrise Styling and Linen Effects

pink glamour

June 4th, 2014

The glamorous bride asked for a perfectly pink affair, and that she received! 

Sara and Rod’s May nuptials were filled with pure joy – not to mention a lot of glitz and glam! Betsy Wall Photography captured perfect special moments and details on this unbelievably romantic day. Clutching her lush and vibrantly pink bouquet of peonies, ranunculus, garden roses and dove roses, loved ones witnessed the gorgeous bride say “I-do” to her handsome groom.

Alongside the bride, her maids, wearing classic black styles held smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet with added hints of hot pink ranunculus. Let’s not forget the adorably giddy flower girls and the pink spray rose flower crown that sat on-top of one of the girls ballet inspired buns.

Nothing was overlooked, even down to the brides “Something Blue” heels hidden underneath her fabulous gown. The romantic reception held at Graves 601 inspired awe as family and guests mingled. Candles galore, a place card table filled with flowers to die for, sweets and treats and gold glittered vases topped with rounded balls filled the room with smiles and memories. This wedding is surely not one to forget!

The linen choice was superb in the space, it reflects the colors of the celling, and the flowers added drama and even more vibrant colors. It was awe inspiring the way it all worked together like a symphony.

Senate & Jon’s Whimsical Mill City Nuptials

December 1st, 2013

BourgeBouquet1

What a pleasure it was to work with Senate and Jon on their August wedding. This Boston based couple wanted an iconic Minnesota wedding, and what better venue than the Mill City Museum. Burlap, mismatched lanterns, and fountain grasses were just a few rustic elements that brought this affair to life.

BourgBlog1

Neutral tones complimented by splashes of fiery orange and mustard yellow felt current, yet organic. Senate’s dreamy bouquet of ranunculus, anemones, garden roses, sweetheart roses, dusty miller, scabiosa pods, and silver brunia was the perfect juxaposition to the clean lines of her modern gown. Her maids carried bouquets of red dahlias, circus roses, kangaroo paw, ranunculus, and dusty miller wrapped in ikat printed fabric.

The couple traded vows in the court yard beneath the beams of the historic Mill. Lanterns and bud vases hung from the beams with streaming ribbons, and chairs were donned with clusters of succulents and greens. The magnolia served as a nod the bride’s native state of Louisiana.
