A French Inspired Wedding | The Blaisdell | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Lauren Baker Photography Events by Melody The Blaisdell styled wedding shoot

This French inspired wedding styled shoot had my name written all over it. Case in point: the use of lavender…y’all know I love me some French Lavender! And the fact that I got work cross not one, but two bucket list vendors off my list was especially appetizing.

Melody, owner and lead planner at Events by Melody, and I got together to talk about possible collaborations. I love her and her team. They’re based just south of Minneapolis, MN and they truly are the creme de la creme! They’ve won multiple awards including but not limited to The Knot’s Best of Weddings, Wedding Wire’s Couple’s Choice, and The ILEA Star Award. So when we decided to collaborate I was beyond excited! Bucket list vendor - check!!

The second check of the ol’ vendor bucket list was The Blaisdell in Minneapolis, MN. The Blaisdell is a relatively new venue in the Twin Cities but boy has it exploded in popularity. I love the simple elegance of the mansion and the fact that it feels like a European manor in the heart of the city. How cool is that?!

Together, Melody, her fellow Events by Melody planner Jess, and I worked together to bring our French inspired wedding styled shoot to life. And we certainly couldn’t have done it without the vision, creativity, and talent our team of vendors. They seriously all knocked it out of the park! Each and every detail they brought to the table was pure gold.

We’re so lucky to have so many talented artists in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. And I for one, can’t wait to work with each of these artists again!
