Well.. Hello!! You can tell that wedding season is winding down because now it is going to be blogging season!! Its the time of year that I finally get to sit back and really enjoy all of the beauty that was created this year and reflect on the photos!! Lets start with Mary Beth and Fred’s BEAUTIFUL Lake Minnetonka Wedding!!
There is an old phrase “It takes an army..” And that is exactly what an outdoor “tent” wedding takes.. an army!!!! If I could count the numerous emails/phone calls and conversations that are had about rain, sun, bugs, parking, mowing, plywood for the caterers, wind, layout, etc, etc. etc. It would probably make me fall over… but for some reason outdoor tent weddings are my favorite type of wedding and I keep coming back year after year to the challenge!!! The key to a great outdoor tent wedding is a good plan and GREAT vendors!! Make sure that you have vendors that are very experienced with the weather elements and are flexible!!
Mary Beth and Freds wedding was full of great vendors that helped pull everything together (Including an unexpected downpour right before dinner!!) and that made my job so much easier and enjoyable!! And what is not to love about this wedding? You are combining my favorite parts of planning the wedding… a wonderful couple, personal touches and a meaningful location!!! Laura Ivanova captured the day beautifully as she always does from the time the girls got ready and toasted in a suite at the Westin through the beautiful sparkler send off at the end of the night!! This classic, elegant, backyard wedding captured Mary Beth and Fred’s style perfectly.. and I was so honored to be a part of it!!!!
