"We wanted something that was contemporary yet timeless, and we knew that it had to take place at The Whim, with a space that’s the perfect blank canvas." — Whitney Yang, photographer and co-founder, Whitney and Matsaya Photography

(photo above) The lovebirds steal away for a moment of solitude, surrounded by tables set to perfection for the feast to come. 

Centerpieces featuring traditional ranunculus and toffee-hued roses get a mod makeover combined with dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids.

Our groom can’t take his eyes off his striking bride in the sculptural “Jess” gown by Eva Lendel.  

A study in femininity, her slingback “Matilda” pumps by Bella Belle Shoes feature a silk-capped toe, a Swiss dot pattern and a soft tulle bow on the heel.

White brick walls and banks of windows create an oasis of natural light at The Whim, a new event space in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis.

Floating in mid-air, an asymmetrical installation by Swiftwater Floral Co. graces the ceremony space. Below, blush candles flickering among scattered rose petals add to the ethereal ambiance. 

A subtle smoky eye pairs with a nude lip for a naturally sultry look by LHNBEAUTY. Classic blossoms spill out of the bridal bouquet, while the off-center arrangement turns these timeless blooms into an up-to-the-minute statement. 

Light, airy florals adorn this textured black cake by Hey There, Cupcake for a daring and dramatic twist.

Gold-rimmed and scalloped, the tableware pairs with gold flatware for a sophisticated setting.

Our bride’s Grecian wing-inspired earrings by Twigs and Honey are a statement of their own.

The newlyweds take center stage against a backdrop of greenery, roses, ranunculus and more.

The invitation suite by Amelia Niu Studio is a classic black-and-white combo in a distinctive square shape. *
