Alli and Eric's rustic wedding at the Grandview Lodge is everything a Minnesota summer wedding should be. The sweeping shots of the beautiful couple on the dock, tranquil lake in the background, make me want to pack up and head for the cabin. Natural accents like earthy floral arrangements and birch bark placecard holders tie in perfectly with the venue, while the formal attire of the wedding add easy sophistication.

Jen Kamstra and Breandan Gleason are a success story—after finding each other on the dating website, they met up for a drink and ended up talking for hours. Drinks led to future dates, which eventually led them down the aisle. Jen and Breandan fell in love with Aria because it just fit their personalities—and happened to be located in their neighborhood. “The flexibility of the space, as well as the amazing team there, really sealed the deal,” says Jen.

With wedding season upon us, that also means bridal showers are aplenty. Whether you're tasked with planning, or are just a guest, bringing a little homemade something for the table is an appreciative gesture that won't be overlooked. If you're scouring Pinterest for something that says gourmet but is easy enough for even a kitchen novice to tackle, scour no more. These Fancy Pants Grapefruit Slices from Mackenzie Schieck's blog, Pine and Crave are just the ticket.
