Our Wedding 6.12.21

Our Wedding 6.12.21

With the launch of our wedding canvases, I wanted to share some details from our wedding day with you! Dave and I met 3 years ago at a Winter Olympics Party - I knew very few people, and Dave made a very conscious effort to get to know me - finding me to chat and standing next to me in the group photo to see how we looked together and gage how tall I was (ha!). With Dave being from Chicago, and me being from Dallas, we both have truly made our lives & communities in Minnesota, which is why we knew we wanted to have our wedding here. We chose the beautiful St. Paul College Club, on historic Summit Avenue, in St. Paul for our wedding day. We loved that we could spend all day there. It was filled with charming rooms and spaces - a garden for the ceremony & cocktail hour, a library that would house the bar, cozy fireplaces, and the most charming getting ready rooms upstairs with original wallpapers I swooned over.

I wanted our wedding to feel like a French & Italian garden party, and once I found our Lela Rose Yellow bridesmaids dresses, the colors and feel started coming together. I made our invitations and paper goods by scanning in old botanical drawings I thrifted, and found online to create an old world and elegant feel. I included lemons, olive branches, peonies to hint at the floral for the wedding that was so beautifully done by Tara at A Day in Provence. Tara and I bonded from our first conversation around our times in the South of France, and she brought so many beautiful details to life for our day.

 

I also had my eyes on the beautiful Julia Amory Peridot Alpine Floral tablecloths from the beginning, and they were the perfect soft backdrop to all of the beautiful green and yellow on the tables. I also knew I wanted some colored glass on the tables. In order to save money, I found these amazing yellow coupe glasses from World Market of all places, and just bought them for the head table!


 

I knew I wanted needlepoint to be a part of our day with some special details. I couldn’t find any version of the Bride and Groom signs that go on the back of your chairs at the head table that I liked, so I decided what I perfect detail to needlepoint and make my own!

I looked at inspiration from old floral samplers and was delighted with how they turned out. I got a little overwhelmed during the stitching process, so my husband decided to learn how to stitch and stitched his own ‘Groom’ sign! It was so fun to do together, and I am happy to report that he is now a stitcher - and loves it!


  

My mom, being an avid needle pointer, wanted to get in on the fun, so she stitched her Mother of the Bride sign for her chair! So we expanded the line to include all parents of the Bride & Groom. I hope you enjoyed getting a behind the scenes look at our wedding day. We felt so loved and supported by all our friends and family, and truly had so much fun.

 We had a BLAST on the dance floor. I loved changing into this Needle & Thread London dress for the last bit of the night, and another favorite detail was painting ‘Just Married’ on a piece of freezer paper to run through at the end of the night!
