Madden’s on Gull Lake Wedding | Erin and Ross

Like so many other Minnesotan’s “Going Up North” is not just a fun summer vacation, but it is really an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. That is exactly what Erin and Ross’s wedding felt like to me! Even though out of town weddings pose a lot of additional challenges for wedding vendors, I jumped at the chance to be apart of Erin and Ross’s intimate wedding celebration at Madden’s on Gull Lake.

Erin’s family has had a cabin on Gull Lake all of her life and she really wanted to share the love of the lake with all of her guests. Erin and Ross were also traveling for this destination wedding from Texas, so most of our planning was done in marathon planning sessions and lots and lots of emails 🙂

Their wedding day was one of the most beautiful days of the summer and with the help of all of our amazing vendors that traveled many miles to help with this wedding…It was a picture perfect day on the lake!!!!

Lake Minnetonka Wedding – Marissa and Derek

WOW…. 3 months later and I am still in awe of Marissa and Derek’s wedding. Not only was the weather picture perfect.. but everything just really came together.
There was “cueing” the wedding processional from two different boats, there was sparklers in champagne and then there was a surprise fireworks show. All of these elements on their own could have created some planning issues.. but then add in the fact that the weather was outside.. In August… and we could have had some really crazy wedding elements.. and that could have created a disaster!!
But like all wonderfully planned weddings with great vendors.. This wedding went off without a hitch and I was honored to be apart of it!! Marissa and Derek live in San Francisco.. so we planned this wedding on a few “whirlwind planning trips” with the bride and groom and the tireless planning of the mother of the bride, Jean!! God Bless this amazing mother….. I can only imagine the amount of time she poured into this wedding and I know that based on these photos.. she has something to be very proud of!!

Marissa and Derek’s love was very infectious and I had so much fun coming to the lake everytime they were home.. to talk through ideas and logistics and to get to know them as a couple!!!! Congratulations you guys!! I hope that you are enjoying newlywed bliss… and I am sure you are already planning your next big adventure 🙂

Lake Minnetonka Wedding Preview – Marissa and Derek!!

If you have been paying attention to our Instagram or Facebook pages you can see that we were really busy this past weekend with a beautiful Lake Minnetonka Wedding!! As a sneek peak the wonderful Janelle Elise Photography sent me some images to share!! It was a beautiful day celebrating this fantastic couple and family!!

A wedding takes a combination of vendors to make it successful.. a backyard tent wedding takes an ARMY of dedicated vendors to make it special… and this one was no exception. I saw Katiee (my Apres Sales Representative) Out at the tent location last week every single one of the 4 days that the tent was getting put up… that is dedication!!

More to come!!
