Sarah and Brian | Hindu Temple in Maple Grove + Aria Minneapolis Wedding

Let me first start off by saying that it has taken me an hour to try and narrow down photos for this blog post! Not only because Joe and Jen Photography make it really hard to pick favorites, but also because a LARGE Two Day Western and Hindu Fusion Wedding had a lot of wonderful moments and memories to sort through!

For Sarah and Brian’s fusion wedding we explored TONS of options… Should we have all of the events in one day? Should we have all of the events at the same venue? Should we split it up over a Saturday and Sunday or would it be best to utlize a Friday and Saturday? After hours and hours debating, planning and stategizing the timeline and flow of both days we landed on an East meets West style; We had a traditional western church ceremony on Saturday followed by a reception for guests that had flown across the country to celebrate with Sarah and Brian. On Sunday morning we headed up to  the Hindu Temple of Minnesota for the Hindu ceremony followed by a lunch and then a bright, fun and festive reception at Aria.

We wanted to utlize as many of the same vendors as possible on both days, however we wanted to give each day its own unique look and feel. For Saturday’s festivies Sarah wore a traditional (and beautiful) white gown and our decor was all very neutral, classic and understated. Sunday was the complete opposite with Sarah in a traditional Indian regalia surrounded by Bright, Bold, Colors that really kicked off the start of summer!!

As I am sure you can tell from the photos… Sarah and Brian’s smiles are infectious and both of these doctors have the deemener of a saint! Planning one wedding can easily push a couple over the edge, but trying to plan two  large and very different weddings at the same time takes a tremendous amount of patience and stamina.

Sarah and Brian- You are the best! If you ever decide to plan another non-stop wedding weekend… I will be there right with you!!!!

Aria Wedding Venue | Ashley and Seth | Minneapolis

Ashley and Seth’s wedding day was filled with family, friends and Lots of Beautiful and classic decor!! The couple planned their wedding from North Dakota with a few trips back to Minneapolis to finalize plans with vendors. From the minute I met Ashley I knew that I really had a good understanding of the style of wedding she wanted and the classic look and feel she was hoping to achieve!

Ashley may have been an only child.. but it was VERY clear that including her friends, family and cousins in her wedding was really important to her. She had a heart of gold and always put everyone else feelings ahead of her own during the whole planning process and the wedding was perfect with 6 bridesmaids, 4 junior bridesmaids, 2 personal attendants, 4 usherettes and 1 flower girl! We had a lot of girl power and beautiful women involved in the big day!!!

Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events and Apres out did themselves transforming Aria for close to 400 guests (a feat that we did a few times in 2017!!). Ashley and Seth’s stationery by Paper Rock Scissors was classic gold foil and letterpress and reflected the overall look perfectly!

It was a beautiful day and I am so happy that we have these beautiful images by Jaimee Morse to remember all of the beauty!!
