First thing’s first — these dresses are everything. Once you pick your jaw up from the floor, you’ll fall in love with hand-collected vintage pieces and sparklers that are icing on the cake with this Eden Prairie, Minnesota wedding, featured originally in our spring 2015 issue.
From the photographers, Summer Street Photography — Photographing Kelly and Dylan’s wedding was a dream. For starters, their entire wedding felt like the set of The Great Gatsby, with these two as the stars. Classy, timeless and (dare I say) sexy, these two are easy to photograph. More importantly, it’s clear that they are meant to be together. Their hearts are big and open. They are ready to welcome whatever comes their way.
Their wedding was filled with vintage delicacies that were hunted and gathered by the bride, mom and her loving comrade of bridesmaids, which gave personal substance to all the pretty details. As photographers, it’s always fun to capture these special touches, but you can feel the love when everything at a wedding has been hand selected with care. From the champagne flutes to the ring box, no detail was left unturned. The bride’s brothers hand built the arbor that the couple said their wedding vows under. Their close friends were the ceremony musicians. Hosting such a thoughtful event can be difficult to execute at just any venue, which is why a private backyard served as the perfect spot for their nuptials. The bride’s cousin was generous enough to lend her lush lawn in as the setting for the big event.
After a tear-jerker of a ceremony, Kelly and Dylan’s guests showered them with love in the form of toasts, hugs and some serious dance moves. The sparklers they incorporated into the late evening hours were a perfect accent that suited the glitz and glamour of the evening. It was a celebration that kicked off what will most certainly be a marriage full of love, laughter and hopefully plenty of champagne toasts.
