Kelsy & Chaz: A Shabby Chic Wedding at the Carlson Towers Rotunda
High school sweethearts Kelsy Stone and Chaz Norrgard dated for eight years before getting engaged. Or, as Kelsy puts it, “Let’s just say I already had wedding ideas twirling in my head long before we were engaged.” One of those ideas was the Carlson Towers, a venue she discovered when helping her older sister scope out wedding venues. Kelsy didn’t think she’d be able to book the towers due to a short engagement, but a cancellation meant the space was hers for the taking. “I was scared because I had just seven months to plan, but I knew it happened for a reason and that we were meant to be married there.” Kelsy chose a shabby-chic theme for the big day, scouring local vintage and antique shops for the perfect centerpieces. “Shabby chic is a great concept because anything goes,” Kelsy says.
