I bet you $1000 that Sierra and Beau did not anticipate snow on their October wedding when they started their wedding planning.

Ah young love! Is there anything as sweet and precious as that? I’m going to say no because Savannah and Zac are possibly the sweetest couple to walk this fine earth. They started dating at the tender age of 15 and have been together ever since. Savannah and Zac’s Hidden Greens Event Venue wedding in […]

Old timey castles, mist in the sky, and greenery as far as the eye can see.

Ojiketa Regional Park, located outside of Forest Lake in Chisago City, MN, has a cute little camp perfect for outdoorsy, canoe loving people. It also is the home of Strom Hall, the venue for Jess and Hannah’s summer wedding.

The Lumber Exchange in downtown Minneapolis, MN artfully weds cool city textures with sleek, chic elegance and makes for the perfect venue for modern weddings. This was oh so clear at Nora and David’s July 2019 wedding.

The day started with the most hilarious first look ever! Together, Nora and her wedding party schemed together and somehow procured a dinosaur costume. One of their groomsmen wore it and walked towards an unsuspecting David. David turned around and…everyone broke into belly laughs!
