A Big Wedding Celebration at The Machine Shop
Wedding: September 16, 2017
Ceremony & reception: Machine Shop, Minneapolis
Honeymoon: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Tina Geha and Todd Steger knew they wanted to go big for their wedding. (Literally; 250 guests attended.) Finding a venue with style that could hold everyone wasn’t easy—until they walked into the Machine Shop. “We fell in love with the Machine Shop when we first saw it,” Tina says. “It gave us the cool, industrial-modern feel we were looking for, had capacity large enough to hold our ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner and dancing, and provided the perfect blank slate that allowed us to infuse our own style and vibe into it so that our wedding details were showcased beautifully.” They kept the colors classic but added modern touches, like a chic graphic pattern on the cake and a chef-prepared sushi station during the cocktail reception. “Most importantly, we wanted to ensure that our guests had a memorable and enjoyable experience,” Tina says.
