Carly & Jason: A Vintage Glam Wedding at Aria

Married August 31, 2013 with a wedding ceremony and reception at Aria in Minneapolis
From: Fall/Winter 2014 edition

Long-time loves Carly Johnson and Jason Olsen didn’t have any trouble selecting a space for their nuptials. “We fell in love with Aria right when we entered the doors,” Carly says. “I loved the open space and the endless options.” Aria’s exposed brick and sparkling chandeliers fit in perfectly with the couple’s vintage glam theme, which influenced everything from the skeleton-key-adorned escort cards to Carly’s Jenny Packham gown. Mercury-glass vases, candelabra centerpieces and vintage glass doorknob table numbers completed the look. But it was the first look at each other that the couple describes as the moment they won’t forget. “It was the one moment that day when it was just us,” Johnson says. “It really hit us that we were finally getting married. I didn’t think we would be as emotional as we were. It was priceless.”
