Saturday Edition

I love Saturdays. Can I get an Amen?

{A Very Twitter} Real Wedding 1.21.12

8 Feb

A & E’s wedding was infused with personality and their love story. A big part of that story is Twitter and the blogosphere.  I had the opportunity to coordinate their wedding on the day of. The ceremony was held at Church of the Epiphany in Plymouth with a reception at the ultra-cool bowling alley/reception hall of Elsie’s in Northeast Minneapolis.

Bridesmaids wore their choice of black dresses. The bride wore a stunning birdcage veil with a turquoise flower accent in her side-swept hair and the groom wore a snazzy bow-tie and equally snazzy beard (he’s the founder of the Minnesota Beard-Off).

A Twitter thread was woven throughout their festivities – guests participated on their Tweet Wall via TweetWally during the reception. Haven’t heard of a Tweet Wall? Here’s what they did: chose a specific tag for their wedding (i.e. #OurWedding12.24.12) which guests include in their tweets about the wedding and are then grouped together and projected onto a wall, making a Tweet Wall.

Thanks to A & E and congrats on your marriage!

Winter Color

These are some bold color choices, and let’s just say I’m in love! What do you think – should bold, bright colors be reserved for the summer months? Or would you add a bold pop of color to your winter wedding?

14 Dec

Christmas is just around the corner. Can you believe it? Winter weddings are not for the weak of heart, especially in Minnesota. I have tromped to many a wedding midst blizzards and seriously sub-zero temperatures. But, it is always worth it in the end and usually makes for a great story, as well. Continue reading

Unveiled Wedding Event

8 Nov

This weekend, the Unveiled Wedding Event came to the Minneapolis Convention Center. The perfect one-stop shop for brides-to-be, vendors varied from wedding dresses, men’s attire, flowers, and stationary to furniture rental and even custom chalkboard designs (what a great idea!). It’s such a pleasure to see the talent that the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area has and the creativity involved in the wedding industry. I snapped a few photos of my favorite dresses, centerpieces and desserts that brides-to-be and entourages were soaking up. Continue reading
