Although Minnesota doesn’t have the warm coastal beaches of California, we do have the North Shore of Lake Superior. Duluth and northward makes for a great escape from the city, all within an easy afternoon drive from Minneapolis. Continue reading

Lighting makes a world of difference in a ceremony or reception space, but is often an item that is overlooked, except for the usual votive candles. This is a huge element of the ambiance of a space and something to consider, just like flowers and music, when setting a budget.
