Kirsten + David :: Aria, Minneapolis wedding! :)

I felt FULL after leaving this wedding…and not the I-ate-so-much-oh-my-word kind of full, but the smiling-heart-happy full! :) Kirsten and David celebrated with a room full of love on a Sunday afternoon in August! :) They are the kind of people everyone NEEDS to know…they are joyful, they are happy, they are generous and they are full of love and life. These two oozed all day as they hugged and smiled and cried and laughed their way through their big day! :)

One of my favorite moments is when their friends and family sang them up the isle to Phil Wickham’s “Divine Romance” just after being pronounced husband and wife. The high-ceiling, urban building filled with a joyful tune that had me nearly in tears! :) They beamed as they made eye contact with many of them singing as they walked back up the isle! :) It was a perfect ending to a meaningful ceremony!

With touches of purple and navy, and silver, gold and pink….it married PERFECTLY with the urban, loft of the Aria (and awesome new venue in Minneapolis! :) And of course, because Kirsten works for TOMS, everyone HAD to be wearing some. I mean, stylish, right?! :) With lace and ribbon and wood cuts and colored bottles and beautiful textures all around, it was AMAZING! :) Her vision came to life and was a perfect backdrop for a Sunday night party of a lifetime! :)

YAY for the new Mr and Mrs Gebel! :)

“The fullness of, your grace is here with me.
The richness of, your beauty is all I see.
The brightness of, your glory has arrived.
In your presence God, I’m completely satisfied.

For you, I sing, I dance.
Rejoice in this divine romance.
Lift my heart and my hands to show my love…”

Divine Romance, by Phil Wickham! :)

Nikki and Robbie :: Enchanted Barn, WI wedding

Rustic, romantic Glam! :) Nikki and Robbie planned a soft and charming wedding at the Enchanted Barn this July! :) From hay bails to soft flowers, cowboy boots, gold glitter, horseshoes and antlers on the tables, this wedding was AMAZING! :) The Enchanted Barn was a PERFECT setting; a rustic barn with tall wavy, green grass with (the best part according to Nikki) the horses wandering in the background the whole night! :)

Coming from California, these two had a seamless vision for how they wanted to “show” guests the rural country side of their home state, Wisconsin! :) With a beautiful view of the barn and the surrounding fields from the ceremony site, the guests were off to a great start. They were then meeted and greeted with sweet tea vodka drinks and margaritas as they enjoyed the July sun and blowing, Wisconsin, summer breeze! :) The evening was rounded out with a family style dinner, HOMEMADE bunt cakes (in about 8 different flavors, YUM), the best live wedding band EVER and, of course, the famous (and everyone’s favorite) Ellsworth Wisconsin cheese-curds for a mid-night snack! :) Talk about a PERFECT rural-Wisconsin wedding! :)

August 6, 2013 : Weddings

Cindy and Nate!

Their day was casual and full of GREAT celebration! :) We pulled up to Nate and Cindy’s house to start our day (I LOOOOVE when a bride chooses to get ready at their own house, it’s so wonderful!) It’s like she is prepping for the rest of her life in the first place that she will begin the rest of her life. The atmosphere is always laid-back and there is so many already-made memories surrounding her as she applies makeup and pulls on her dress, quite a cute narritive I think! :)

Cindy had a vision of something soft and romantic with touches of vintage. Since the day she was born, her Mom had been collecting white milk-glass vases and pitchers; so the minute Nate proposed, her vision was clear and she HAD to use her Mom’s collection! :) She tied it all together with burlap runners, an AMAZING vintage mint cake stand, and splashes of kraft paper elements and small vintage frames! :) It was simple and charming….just like Cindy and Nate! :) Nate wore a custom tie-clip with hammered letters that spelled “BEST DAY EVER” (I agree), while Cindy carried around a bouquet that her maid-of-honor put together for her (talk about talent)! :) Guests sat under that warm June sun as they promised their lives to one another….and as the wedding program said “Now, let’s celebrate with lots of good food, some booze, and really bad dance moves!”

YAY for you, Mr and Mrs Heinz (ps, don’t you just love the mini-heinz ketchup’s for their guest favor?! :) What a great day it was! :)
