Lindsay & Ian: Pretty Pastel Wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion

From: Spring/Summer 2015 edition

Wisconsin-based Lindsay Dorcas met Ian Melander when she was visiting a friend in Minneapolis. A year later and plenty of car trips down I-94 in the rearview mirror, Lindsay moved to Minneapolis, and the rest is happy history. For their wedding venue, they chose the Van Dusen Mansion, whose top-notch service had impressed Lindsay from day one. “Their staff had a solution for everything, and no matter what was asked, the answer was ‘yes,’ ” she says. “My bridesmaids were awestruck by the fact that it was such a stress-free day and we could just enjoy it because of all the details the mansion took off of our plates.” Among the highlights? The gorgeous setting, a day of celebrating with friends and family and their first dance (choreographed by Ballroom & Wedding Dance Studio), which they practiced together in a quiet moment before heading out to the reception.
