floral_elementANDREA & CRAIG | CALHOUN BEACH CLUB WEDDING

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. – Leonardo da Vinci

Andrea & Craig hosted a classic & elegant soiree at the always perfect Calhoun Beach Club. Though it rained (and/or downpoured!) at certain points throughout their day, we managed to sneak outside for portraits with umbrellas and dresses dragging through puddles. The rain made all the greenery so vibrant and colorful. Throughout it all, Andrea & Craig didn’t seem to have a care in the world. They were nothing but smiles- so gracious and thankful. My favorite moment with them was sneaking out to the lawn outside of the Beach Club for photos with just us- their happiness and love is so evident! Their families are equally as loving- Andrea got lots of kisses from her brother and dad throughout the day, which was so sweet! Thank you for inviting me and my team to be a part of your day.

floral_elementYENNI & JON | CALHOUN BEACH CLUB WEDDING

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!
