The Gorgeousness That Was

Leaning toward contemporary design, I’ve always loved the Skyline Room at the Walker Art Center (in fact, The Style Laboratory did the very first wedding reception in that room).

When discussing the design of the wedding reception with Jeanine and Curt, we focused on how to “marry” the contemporary space with a nod to a Great Gatsby feel.  At the center of the vision was Jeanine’s stunning black wedding gown.

Cadence and Eli (what talented and passionate photographers) captured the images so beautifully!

Floral was designed and meticulously executed by Bastian*Skoog.  They integrated the black lace seamlessly with the very romantic florals and…

…the amazing custom bunting installation that served as a backdrop of the ceremony and later the band.

Break dancers did double duty as they provided some entertainment as guests awaited the start of the ceremony, as well as escorting the bride down the aisle.

Following the ceremony, guests were greeted by Cigarette Girls.

D’Amico Catering provided some yummy food (required, as the groom has been in the restaurant industry for most of his adult life) and Cocoa & Fig put together a breathtaking dessert table.  Pretty signage by MaeMae Paperie and rentals from Wallflower Event Rental.

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).

Transforming a Room

A comment that is brought up on a regular basis by wedding couples is “I don’t want a boring hotel for my reception.”

Well, maybe the blame is being unfairly placed on the hotel. This wedding reception, designed and planned by Mother of the Bride (who, by the way, is the largest wedding design and planning company in the state) definitely doesn’t look like it’s in a boring hotel room.

Granted, it does take some imagination and knowing the right people to call (this is why we recommend working with wedding planners and/or designers), but a room can definitely be transformed.

In particular, I love that floor covering was brought in for the lounge area…sleek, yet approachable. By adding some draping with soft, luminous lighting and covering the chairs and tables with satin linens from Linen Effects, the room really does look anything other than a “boring hotel room”.

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.
