Well, after months and months of planning, our big day came and went in the blink of an eye! We had a perfect Minnesota Fall day! The sun was shining all day long and lasted until right after the ceremony. And while I could give you all the details of the whole week leading up, I’ll simply say this, it was everything I imagined and more. We were surrounded by our closest friends and family, we danced, we laughed, and we celebrated. We had the best time with our family and friends in the days leading up to the wedding and couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day!
I’ve said it the entire planning process, but we had the best vendors who made our day go so smoothly!
Event Planner & Florist: Ashley Skeie Wedding & Events
Yep, I’ll say it again. Ashley was the best decision we could’ve made from the beginning. And I can easily say she exceeded any expectation we had. It’s one thing to sit in a meeting with her and pick certain pieces from her inventory but then to see it come to life was amazing! She is not only a talented planner, but our floral arrangements were out of this world! I’m forever grateful to her and her team for making our day so beautiful!
Photographer: Sophisticated Grace Photography
April has been documented some pretty big moments in our relationship so it was only fitting to have the best capture our wedding day and wow, did she do an amazing job. We are in love with all of the photos we got back so far and can’t wait to see what else she captured! She is so talented and we were lucky to have her be such a big part of our day!
Videographer: 218 Visuals
I honestly think I found Noah on a Facebook bride page and I’m so glad I did! He has such a creative eye and was so professional. A videographer was something that was a “must have” for me and I’m so glad Noah was available! I can’t wait to see what he puts together for us!
Venue & Catering: Barker’s Island Inn
We had the ceremony outdoors on the patio and it was such a beautiful setting with the sailboats in the background. And the team at Barker’s was so helpful in the months leading up. I’m so glad they didn’t block my email address in the last few weeks ha! And the food was so good, everyone was raving about it!
Bakery: Johnson’s Bakery
We did an assortment of bars (said in the most Minnesotan accent as possible). They were delicious. At least, I think they all were. We only got a few of them the next day because they were so cleared out!
Robes: Ella Winston
I found Ella on Instagram and am so glad I chose to get robes for the girls through her! The girls had a beautiful tropical palm pattern, but I am so obsessed with the white lace robe I got to get ready in. The moment I put that on in the morning I felt like a bride!
Here’s a few photos from our magical day!
For Chase’s wedding day gift I got him ice fishing rods made from old beer taps and he LOVED them! I’m so glad I was able to find a local Minnesota guy to make him these!
