On this frigid Minneapolis morning, it’s fun to reminimisce about sunny, summer weddings like Yenni & Jon’s! They were married at a beautiful park and hosted their reception at the gorgeous, light-filled, Calhoun Beach Club– one of my favorite wedding venues. They enlisted the expertise of Munster Rose for florals and styling and they made the pastel pink palette sophisticated and elegant, yet fun and vibrant. Yenni & Jon are from Indonesia & Malaysia, so they began their morning with a tea ceremony at The W Hotel, but instead of donning a traditional red dress, Yenni was perfection in a a pink sequin gown. As gorgeous as she was, the real show stopper was her mermaid gown from L’atelier Couture, and vibrant peep-toe bow pumps. The bride and groom were all smiles the entire day, and I think the whole room choked up during when Jon fought back tears and thanked all their guests at the reception and professed his love for his bride. It’s so fun to experience different cultural traditions, so thank you Yenni & Jon for trusting me to document your day!
