fab.weddings: Stephanie + Patrick | Minneapolis, MN

May 20th, 2010

Stephanie and Patrick hired me to coordinate their picture-perfect May 2, 2009 wedding at Mount Olivet Lutheran church and the reception at the Calhoun Beach Club.   They were so easy and fun to work with and I loved Stephanie’s choice to use navy instead of black for the bridesmaid dresses.  The weather was absolutely perfect for the guests to enjoy their cocktails on the terrace at Calhoun Beach Club overlooking Lake Calhoun.   It was my first time working with Graddy Photography, who took fantastic detail shots, as well as CBC.  I was wowed by D’Amico catering staff and can’t wait to get back there next week (with the Graddy’s again too)!  These were another set of clients that I went through withdrawals over when the wedding was done.  Thanks so much, Stephanie and Patrick!  You guys are awesome!


Lots of beautiful details at Mount Olivet

Mr. and Mrs!




I’m pretty fickle about bows, but I really loved these bridesmaid dresses.





Each guest was greated by a bag if mini gummi bears from Stephanie and Patrick.



I’m sure it took forever to make these, but the creativity was noticed and greatly appreciated by their guests!


I love ring shots… bring on the bling!


The best part about working with D’Amico is they provide the cake with the catering menu.  Not only is it convenient, they’re well design AND taste fantastic!
