Lauren + Marc's Stillwater Wedding
Lauren + Marc are such a sweet couple and it was a blast helping them plan their big day in Stillwater, MN from afar! They were technically a destination wedding, as they were living in New York during the planning stage.
Lauren's family is mostly here in Minnesota and Marc's family is in California. They got married at the farm Lauren grew up at here in Stillwater. During the first walk through at the farm, we fell in love with the grounds! We suggested they hold their ceremony in the pine forest located on the farm- they got excited and we went for it. It was really magical!
A little background about the couple:
They found a commonality in their first moments (the source books for Game of Thrones), and they laughed throughout their second date. The laughs haven't stopped since then.
What was your most memorable date? Just before Lauren moved to Atlanta to work with the CDC for a year Marc took her to a surprise date night dinner at Raoul's in Lower Manhattan. It was a moment to reflect on the sheer dumb luck that they had found each other, and how much better their lives were for it.
The proposal: One night they were eating salads after the gym (showered but not put together) in their apartment and she went to get some ice cream. She received an atypical response to wait just a moment. Then he started talking about how they had created a life together in this home, how great they are together, and how much he loves her. As he got down on one knee and proposed she was flapping with excitement and joy "Yes!"
The color palette for the day was a mix of navy blue, burnt + soft orange, and ivory. They wanted something "Rustic Elegant." Between the gorgeous florals, tented reception with soft drapery, and the romantic outdoor setting, we'd say bringing the vision to life was a smashing success!
One of our favorite design elements was the mixed table shapes for the reception and the great cocktail hour set-up (lots of high-top tables, games, great food). The view of the grounds at the reception was also spectacular! There was something beautiful to look at from every angle.
We love how much these two enjoy each other's company and can laugh for hours on end. They're a great pair and working with them was so very wonderful! We can't thank them enough for choosing us!
