William and Nathan were wedded on gorgeous July day. The following images are provided by Kelly Brown Weddings, and they captured every rich detail. The event was draped in rich fabrics in chocolate browns, greens, and oranges, everything fit just so.
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.
The harvest table was lush and gorgeous, with chocolate linens and mercury glass votives adorned the whole table. Even the grooms’ chairs matched the space perfectly!

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!
Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. Brink!

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.
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.
Congratulations Senate and Jon!

We are thrilled to share Katie & Jack’s beautiful wedding photos by Paul Vincent Photography. We’re enamored with the combo of soft pastels with a jolt of rich red, giving the vintage designs a rustic edge.
This adorable couple was married September 21st at Lake of the Isles Church, with the reception at Interlachen Country Club. Katie carried a bouquet of white garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus. Her bridesmaids, clad in petal chiffon gowns clutched bouquets of light pink garden roses, red ranunculus, dusty miller, and eucalyptus.
Guest tables were topped with flowering birch trees and lush floral balls of white hydrangea, garden roses, and dripping greens. With accents of candlelight and gold mercury glass, the reception evoked the romance of cozy, chic lodge.
How adorable are these baby’s breath monograms of the bride and groom’s first initial?

Teresa and Andy were married in St. Paul on a gorgeous August day. Teresa was radiant in an a-line gown with layers of ivory chiffon, perfectly complimented by her bouquet of blush roses, peach stock, fragrant garden roses, white ranunculus, and cafe au lait dahlias. Her maids carried bright bouquets of lavender stock, pink spray roses, fuchsia David Austin roses, cymbidium orchid blooms, and white hydrangea; a fun pop to their of-the-moment mint strapless dresses.
The reception was held at Midland Hills Country Club, where the ballroom was beautifully draped by Apres Party Rental. Crisp white linens were dolled up with mercury and glass containers filled with lush arrangements echoing the bridesmaid’s poseis. A modern, fun, and colorful approach to romance.
Congratulations Teresa and Andy! Best wishes for a beautiful life together.

Travis and Nikki did everything right for their wedding: from the linens, to the food, to the venue, to that DRESS! We knew from the beginning this event would be something special. Although with a killer lineup of vendors, it was working with this amazing couple that was the true treat. Nikki and Travis are such a wonderful match, and the beauty of their love is incredibly evident to everyone around them. We were so honored to take part in such a blessed affair.
Nikki was a knockout in a fit and flare ivory gown, clutching a romantic bouquet of hydrangea and garden roses. Her maids donned chic charcoal chiffon gowns with bouquets of blush, pink, and cream garden roses.
The real fun began at the reception, with tables dressed in glimmering silver linens and loaded with candles and lush arrangements of white hydrangea. Clear glass and chrome containers were mixed with both gold and silver mercury glass, delivering optimal glow and romance.
Thanks to all the amazing vendors who made this day so special for Nikki and Travis.
