If you are just stopping by, we’re currently savouring every lovely detail of this beautiful pink and gray wedding Lace Hanky Photography sent us. An elegant blend of pink and charcoal gray, this pretty fete is as romantic as it is elegant. With lovely customized details from Honeydew Creative and a unique post ceremony trolley ride for the wedding party, it ticks all the boxes for a fun and fabulous affair!
Bride Jennifer shares: We knew we wanted a wedding with classic, fun and romantic elements. The Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis, MN with its Classical/Baroque architecture was the perfect venue for our ceremony. The reception was held in the ballroom of the recently renovated Grand Hotel just blocks away. The creative team at Honeydew Creative did a perfect job incorporating our color theme of pink and gray before, during and after our big day by designing the following custom items: save the date cards, invitations, postage stamps, hospitality bags for guests staying at the hotel, candy-bar labels, wine labels, dinner menu, card box and thank you cards.
There were many other personalized touches that we devised on our own. The groom forego the common black tuxedo look and instead wore a made-to-measure charcoal suit by Hart Schaffner Marx, with a made to measure white shirt from Hubert White, and traditional plaid wedding tie from Kent Wang. At the ceremony we utilized the amazing performers available through the Basilica hiring a string quartet, trumpeter, organist and soloist. The ceremony, the wedding-party trolley ride that followed, and the reception were captured by Princess Bride Videographers who did a fantastic job editing hours of footage into a single, coherent, cinematic HD video. Some other personalized touches included hand-written note cards for every guest staying at our reception site welcoming them to the wedding and included some helpful tips for the weekend. Our wedding favors included our favorite wine (Ravenswood Zinfandel) with personalized wine labels and candy bar.
Our favorite moments included:
- Seeing each other for the first time!!!
- Walking down the aisle to my new husband and seeing all our friends and family standing in the church!!
- Getting on the Trolley after the wedding and able to relax with all of our close friends and family!
- Our first dance
- Brides dance with Dad!
