Chris & Kim: An Intimate Wedding at Edgewood Farm

When Chris and Kim tied the knot at Edgewood Farm, it was in front of a very talented group of people. Chris (owner of The Slow Motion Booth) being a prominent photographer in Minneapolis meant that many of the guests were also established photographers. With Kim being a professional graphic designer, this wedding was destined to be aesthetically beautiful down to the last detail.

The farm provided an organic and breathtaking background for the stunning affair, which featured natural elements like driftwood signage and wildflower centerpieces. The twinkle lights and votive candles provided an air of intimacy and romance. It is no surprise that such an artistic couple would put on such a fabulous event. The whole day was captured beautifully by Graddy Photography.

From the bride:

Chris
and I were destined to meet despite not being a true 'match' for each
other on our dating profiles. Just one year and 21 days after our
first date, we said "I do" at Edgewood Farm. The venue, nestled in
the bluffs of the Minnesota River Valley, offers a truly unique setting that
surrounds you with peaceful views of lush trees and the river valley as well as
the character and charm of a country farm.

We decorated the hillside ceremony
site with hand-painted signs, strands of cafe lights, and hanging lanterns. Meanwhile
the rustic barn was warmed up with burlap, lace and hanging lights to give it
just the right ambiance. The floral center pieces were in painted mason jars
and used peach, ivory and gray tones to create the casually elegant look
we were going for. After Chris surprised me with one of our favorite musicians
performing our first dance song, the night entailed dancing, campfire with
s'mores, and The Slow Motion Booth for the evening's entertainment.
