Kayla and Kyle were married over Memorial Day weekend with picture perfect weather right on the banks of the Mississippi River at Nicollet Island Pavilion. Kayla and Kyle planned the whole wedding remotely while living in Texas, but that did not let that stop Kayla from putting her impeccable style on this wedding (seriously, I wish she was my stylist!). With bright summer colors, her wonderful florist (and neighbor) transformed the space into the perfect spot to celebrate Kayla and Kyle and to kick of summer!
As wedding season is kicking off here in Minnesota, I can’t help but share more of our beautiful weddings from last summer. Including this bright, beautiful and fun August wedding at Aria!
Lauren and Evan planned their wedding remotely while living in Chicago. And thanks to Lauren’s wonderful organizational skills and her mom Julie’s assistance here in Minnesota we were able to have a lot of fun with the planning.
They choose Aria to host their ceremony and reception because they had a lot of out of town guests and wanted to make it as easy as possible for their guests to get around town and enjoy the celebration.
Evan proposed to Lauren with one of her favorite treats, Ice Cream.. So when they told me this I not only thought we needed to have Ice cream for the dessert at the wedding.. but we should also incorporate it into cocktail hour (because everyone loves Ice Cream).
I have so much love for this family its hard to even think of where to begin!! I have known the Roberts Family for three years now and it all began when I had the honor of planning Emily and Jay’s wedding in 2016. It was a beautiful event and my favorite part of planning was getting to know both Emily and Jay’s family and seeing the tight knit bond that they all had!
Fast forward to the summer of 2017… I woke up one morning to a text from Dave Roberts. He had sent the text late at night letting me know that Libbie and Matt had gotten engaged. You know that the planning process is going to be fun when on the night of the engagement you get a text!!
Luckily for me, I was open for the date they were hoping to get married and Libbie had already been in super planning mode locking down the Basilica and JX Event Center for their wedding date. With all of the plans starting to come together we focused on the decor, which is always my favorite part of the planning process. The Roberts family are experts at planning decor and always know exactly what they want. We combined elements of a classic wedding with fun and unique details such as gingham patterns, greenery and elegant white floral.
The bridesmaids wore custom made dresses by Camilynbeth (And they are even named the “Libbie”). Libbie incorporated many sentimental elements into her wedding day including a monogram on her veil, photo charms on her bouquet, and custom made cuff links.
We used Libbie and Matt’s monogram to really “brand” the wedding decor. The monogram was included on the day of stationery, favors and We even hung a 3ft monogram above the dance floor!
Just when I did not think the wedding could get any better, Matt’s bar was onsite to cook late night Juicy Lucys for all of the wedding guests… Talk about the perfect end to a great wedding!
Lexie and JT were married at the historic Mill City Museum on a beautiful August Summer Day!
The couple chose the industrial Mill City Museum for their wedding because they loved the location and the history of the venue. They had guests flying in from all over the country to attend their wedding and they wanted to make the whole day easy for their wedding guests.
Blush floral and navy sequence linens helped soften the look of the very industrial wedding venue. The couples love for animals was apparent throughout the whole planning process so it was only right to include them in the design with custom dog cocktail napkins and a guest book sign!
The Sunsets at Mill City are some of the best in Minnesota and I am glad that Lucas was able to capture so many beautiful photos at the end of the day!
Beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony and tent wedding reception held on a beautiful summer day. A Clearspan wedding tent was covered in lots of lights and hanging greenery to create a magical effect. Personalized details and monograms created a beautiful wedding design and a memorable day!
