Kaitlin & Joshua: Classic Spring Wedding at Calhoun Beach Club

From: Spring/Summer 2015 edition

Kaitlin Gaddie and Joshua Larson met while working at the same hospital; in fact, the couple took their “first look” photos on the hospital’s helipad. For their wedding, the couple wanted to represent both their current home of Minneapolis and the places they grew up. “Adding bits of personal touches was essential to bring the hometown love,” says Kaitlin. They fell in love with the Calhoun Beach Club, since Uptown Minneapolis is one of their favorite neighborhoods, and nearby Lake Calhoun called to mind the big lakes near where Kaitlin and Joshua grew up.

They incorporated Kaitlin’s hometown of Duluth through the cake and pies, and Joshua’s Red Wing with the Knudsen Caramel favors. Their theme was northwoods beauty meets city chic, which they pulled off with a flourish, using different types of wood, fresh flowers and the sophisticated venue. “I wanted to bring our favorite elements of nature and place them alongside our love of city life,” Kaitlin says. “It was the perfect juxtaposition of glam and rustic, which is very much ‘us.’”
