Scott & Don: 91 degrees in a Tuxedo

Holy hot!!!  My grooms came to northern MN to host their lakeside wedding at a relative’s home.  Setting up in the 90+ deg heat was a chore and I believe that I lost 5 lbs. that day.  Scott and Don did their photos and couple shoot prior to the ceremony.  Not sure how they did it, but they managed to stay in full tux attire beyond their first dance (about 6 hours).  The ceremony took place at another friend of the couple’s resort. An intimate groups of guests shared the joy and ceremony overlooking the lake.  Retreating back to the Aunt’s home – the couple and guests enjoyed cold cocktails, appetizers, dinner, and cake from Buttercream.

Them living in Michigan and not having a chance to visit MN before the wedding, I thank Scott and Don for their trust in letting me plan their wedding and all the décor.  With hints of northern and outdoorsy inspiration – bright summer colors, vibrant floral from Sadie’s ND, and a branch style cake with hugging bears topper was the perfect design for the lakeside home/venue.

I just have to say a special thanks to a couple vendors.  Sadie Gardner of Sadie’s ND for providing the amazing floral décor.  Was wonderful to work with you again!  And to my assistant Mai Lor and photographer Callie V…. both who were pregnant during this wedding and waddled their way through the steamy hot wedding day. You are troopers!!!
