MACHINE SHOP WEDDING, MINNEAPOLIS, MN
You guys, Covid-19 lockdown has me digging deep into the archives and sharing some of my favorite work that I never got around to sharing! Let’s bring it back to 2017!
I honestly can’t believe I’ve never shared this shoot, as it’s one of my all time favorites! Faith, the wedding planner and lead designer behind This Love Weddings, approached me to photograph this editorial for BlackBride.com. We had worked together previously (here and here, for example) so I knew Faith was going to plan and style something incredible! And, of course she knocked it out of the park. This “Velvet Dream” editorial featured vibrant tropical colors and lots of scrumptious velvet set against the backdrop of one of Minneapolis, Minnesotas most sought after venues.
All of the vendors she pulled together were equally as talented – some of the best of the best in the Minneapolis wedding industry. Sadie’s Florals did an incredible job with the bouquet and tablescape. I know all my Hawaii brides are used to seeing COLOR, but these florals were bold for the Mainland in 2017 when neutrals, blush, champagne and gold were in the midst of their multi-year takeover of the wedding world. Julie of Champagne Press designed unique and bold geometric stationery with velvet accents. Chowgirls food was insane. Cocoa and Fig put together a stunning, and delicious, dessert table.
This was just such a fun crew of vendors, and as much as I love Hawaii, this really makes me miss my hometown and Minneapolis community!
