Garrett and Briana at The NP Event Space | PUBLISHED in MN Bride!!

WOOHOO times two!!  :)  Garrett and Briana's wedding was published in the real wedding section of the current issue of Minnesota Bride!  If you haven't seen the hard copy yet you should definitely head to the store and pick up a copy!  It is so beautiful.  ;)

Garrett is my cousin and fellow photographer in the lakes area.  Although I was not their full-day wedding photographer, I did photographer Briana's getting ready time as well as other details and a few portraits at the end of the day.

I also did all the flowers for the wedding (whew...the time I learned it is harder to be a florist than it looks...MUCH HARDER), but overall everything turned out great in the end.  Briana sparkled and chalk painted the centerpiece vases (LOVED them!) and so many other family members helped to make their dream wedding come true.

Enjoy the images below and stay tuned for their day-after session later this week.  Besides being photographed on the grounds of Northern Pacific Center we did some dreamy stuff inside the Powerplant...can't wait to share!

Billie & Jeremy | August Wedding

Billie & Jeremy | August Wedding

I LOVE Billie and Jeremy.  Seriously.  They are very individual, sweet and have so much love.  What I really love about our couples is that they are all different and so wonderful at the same time. 

When I first met with Billie and Jeremy they talked of having a steampunk themed wedding.  It fit perfectly with the idea of minimal decor, accenting the building and property itself.  Although their final wedding decor turned into more of a mix of steampunk with classic Victorian and a slight industrial feel, it was still so perfect.  And of course, I can't NOT mention Billie's incredibly beautiful dress.  The lace, the ruffle, the flow...seriously gorgeous!

They had an overcast, massive chance of rain day.  We took a risk and it started to rain just as Billie's father walked her down the aisle.  Just as the ceremony was finishing, the skies opened up to the most beautiful sunshine that landed right on Billie and Jeremy.  It was meant to be.  If you look closely, you can see the wet ground amidst sun just after their first kiss! 

They had lots of fun touches including an old-fashioned photobooth, signature drink station, pie dessert bar, vintage cameras and steampunk themed decor that was mostly made by the bride.  With delicious appetizers and dinner served by Prairie Bay and great company, it was a perfect day!

Happy Halloween from The NP Event Space to you!!!  Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year!  I ran across this STUNNING Platinum by Priscilla of Boston wedding dress this year and had to plan a styled shoot around it.  The gown is one of the most beautiful and glamorous I have ever seen...from the crystals to the train to the satin, it is incredible!

Our First Wedding!

Our First Wedding!

This weekend was the first ever wedding at The NP Event Space.  As we rushed to finish the build out in the building (we didn't get final okay to start until May 14...it has been a very busy three weeks to say the least!), Adam and Amanda's family helped complete some last minute work that really saved the day!  I couldn't be more thankful for how much they pitched in to make things perfect.  I CAN'T WAIT to see the images from their photographer...I am sure they will be amazing!  Until then, here are a few I was able to take during the day.  CONGRATS A + A!  You will forever be remembered as our first wedding at the (almost) end of the chaos!

About The NP Event Space : Our Branding Experience

When it came time to brand our new space, we knew Nikki with Akula Kreative was the one to do it.  I actually had sent her an inquiry and my heart dropped when she was currently booked...but then her next line revealed she would so graciously squeeze us in!!  I couldn't have been more happy that day!

The reason Nikki is so booked is basically because she is a creative genius.  This is the second time I have used her services (read about the first time here) and I have been SO, SO HAPPY both times.  She is the only brander, designer, graphic extraordinaire person who I have ever worked with where I have been 100% happy with the end result.

I gave her some images of the buildings and some thoughts and ideas and with a few minor changes we ended up with a logo, pattern, and total brand feel that couldn't be more perfect!  From the industrial feeling logo with a touch of femininity to the anvil based pattern, all of the design elements put me over the moon!

Here is our final brand sheet:

 

And how good does this little package make you feel?  This sweet wrapping and ribbon included our files on USB inside a little aluminum box.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  Some serious care and superior excellent service are both abundant in her work.
