Minnesota Bride Fall/Winter 2023

The overall vibe of this shoot was to showcase luxurious textures in every detail, from the flowers cascading down behind the head table to the textured plates and linens all the way down to the ring choices. Everything was chosen with intention and creativity.

Our bride and groom share a sweet kiss amid the greenery at the Catalyst by Nature Link in Nisswa. Her “Louise” gown by Jenny Yoo, from Flutter Bridal Co., features a plunging sweetheart neckline; her romantic loose updo is by The Notorious Beauty Bar. The groom stays dapper in a classic suit by The Black Tux. 

In an intimate post-nuptial moment, the bride shows off her sparkling ring by Wedding Day Diamonds. The sumptuous bouquet, a study in white, includes ranunculus, anemones, Queen Anne’s lace against a bed of foliage and blue tweedia by 651 Studio Floral. 
Sprays of Tibet roses and blue and white delphiniums lead to a show of roses and blue and white hydrangeas softly climbing the ultra-modern custom altar with yellow gold, complementing the bride’s rings. Breathtaking forest views surround the altar and encase our bride and groom with tranquility.
Ensconced in refined green velvet, the bride’s engagement ring from Wedding Day Diamonds is a three-karat pear-shaped diamond between two single-karat stones on a yellow-gold band. Her dainty wedding band is cast in gold to match.
a classic invitation suite by Epitome Papers is all about delicate details, such as the gold wax seal, barely-there floral illustrations, the forest green envelope lining and neutral bow, foreshadowing the ceremony and reception palette.
For a sweet touch, Hey There, Cupcake created this strikingly spare, textural two-tier confection, set off by a halo of plumosa ferns and ranunculus.
This modern setup features natural wood accents paired with lush, table-length centerpiece of Tibet roses and ranunculus, gomphrena and carnations. Neutral linens keep the focus on the magical ambiance of the airy, open space.

A sophisticated table setting keeps it simple, with gold-tone flatware to add just a touch of shimmer. A simple white candle in a minimal low holder contrasts with the antique charm of the crystal water goblet. Resting atop the tableware, scroll place cards by Epitome Papers complete the look.
