Inspiration for your road to the altar

I have one thing to say about the wedding of this adorable couple – mini donuts! I can’t think of a better way to end a reception than passing out bite size pastries to all of your guests (really, who doesn’t love a donut?)  Lisa and Seth were married in Minneapolis on a gorgeous Fall day, in a event that is full of understated simplicity.  Lisa’s dress is so perfectly classic and I love the single blooms in small glass vessels set up throughout the reception – a perfect way to achieve a romantic feeling without spending a chunk of your budget on blooms.

I always live it when a bride commits to a bold color palette, so Kerri & Jason’s orange and pink color combination was an instant favorite! The couple originally wanted to be married at the World’s Fair Pavilion, but when the venue was booked they incorporated the vibe they wanted to achieve into a new space. During the reception Kerri’s was surprised by a phone call from her sister, who was at home on bed rest and about to have a baby. The DJ put the call on speaker phone and by the time the conversation was through there wasn’t a dry eye in the house – such a sweet moment!

Not only is the color palette for Jandee & Shane’s Colorado wedding gorgeous, I love the relaxed vibe felt in all their photos. The relaxed vibe is even more impressive because if any bride and groom had a reason to be extra stressed it was these two – they packed up and moved to Germany the week after their wedding! Jandee rocked her tea length dress and the contrasts of plum and yellow throughout the day really added to the overall atmosphere. And don’t you just love the boutonnieres?
