minnesota spring wedding | laura & mark, part 2
Mark and Laura’s wedding… lovely on so many levels. If you missed part 1, click here and enjoy all of the purple goodness that made up their Minnesota wedding. We were already smitten with Laura and Mark, their families, and wedding party, but when we walked into their reception, we were floored! Maria at Ispiri Events oversaw the entire event, and the hardworking ladies at Memory Makers Decor created a what felt like a romantic getaway where the 300+ guests celebrated Mark and Laura’s new marriage.
Talk about beauty: candlelit dinner, fabric draped from the ceiling, friendly conversation, and the most delish chicken parmesan courtesy of Brianno’s Deli at Royal Cliff! We were also IN LOVE with the floral design that was used throughout the wedding day. Hats off to our bride’s mom, the talented owner behind the new floral business: Forget-Me-Not Floral Events. Her table arrangements were so elegant, enhancing the romantic mood of the evening. Laura and Mark swayed to the sounds of Gavin DeGraw’s “More than Anyone” and then partied the night away with their many guests. Perfection.
The Nie wedding was an amazing way to kick off our wedding season. We were honored to spend the day making photos of such an outgoing group, and on the train tracks- where else?!
Congratulations L & M!
