Ice Blue Wedding

I had been holding off in posting this wedding, as I knew it was going into the newly released Minnesota Bride magazine. Isn’t it pretty?

Give My Regards… collaborated with Linen Effects, Apres Party & Tent Rental and Instant Request to set the ice blue feel at The Depot (appropriately in the skating rink).

A Different Kind of Red, White & Blue

As a tribute to the Fourth of July, I decided to post a couple of Style Boards that have red, white and blue. Although, it isn’t the traditional color combination, it definitely works for events and weddings!

He’s Visual, You’re Visual, I’m Visual, We’re All Visual

Yesterday I was talking to a bride about her wedding. She and her fiance were looking at a lot of venues and some of them were so drastically different from one another. One thing she brought up was that a number of the venues didn’t have very many images to show different set-ups and color schemes, as well as a decor ideas.

As a professional, I can generally visualize design concepts in my head when I look at a room. But, I can imagine how challenging it would be for someone planning the wedding of their dreams for the first time. Aided with Style Boards that I sent her, she was able to get a much better sense of the venues and fell in love with two in particular.

I think International Market Square is a perfect example of a venue that is hard to visualize set-up for a wedding. Due to the extremely high ceilings and the different levels, putting it all together in your head may be challenging.

It is much easier to get a sense of a space with the Style Boards. This example of a ceremony and reception shot by Staja Studios really helps couples imagine the possibilities of the International Market Square (which happens to be one of the venues the couple is considering). At the same time, couples get a sense of a photographer’s work. Some venues are harder to shoot than others and you can definitely tell the experience and talent through the images.

Although we really love for you to take the time to experience the Style Stations for yourself (feedback is that it is a fun, efficient and extremely helfpul tool), you can always call or email us to ask us to send you Style Boards based on your search criteria.

Blue Skies and Green Grass

I love the combination of blue and green in the work by Flora Studio. Maybe because it is reminding me of summer.

The bridal bouquet, boutonniere and flower girl’s kissing ball are so fresh and lively with green cymbidium orchids and the blue hydrangea bridesmaid bouquets are so soothingly beautiful. The centerpieces are a perfect blend of color and texture. Flora, known for their technical perfection, always has a gorgeous style.
