Talk about creativity! This Fairy Tale in the Woods inspiration is whimsical and unique from beginning to end. A talented group of Minnesota based vendors collaborated to create this rustic elegance wedding inspiration. Keep scrolling for a deep blue Tara Latour wedding dress, enchanting decor and details, a delightful dessert buffet by Cocoa & Fig and a surprise engagement story.
This is the second collaboration with most of the vendors listed and provides an outlet for showcasing our best designs and creativity. Not only was this truly a stunning collaboration of some of the best, as well as lesser known, talent in the Twin Cities, there is an engagement story to go with it.
When it came time to recruit models for our shoot, Molly contacted her childhood friend, Brian, and asked if him and his girlfriend, Jay, would be available and interested in the opportunity. As fate would have it, Brian shared with her that he had just finished a custom designed ring and was planning to propose to Jay, but needed to creative way to do so. It was meant to be.
So on one of the most beautiful Fall days we could have asked for and just as we were getting ready to start shooting, Molly realized that our bride didn’t have a ring! — “Does anyone have a ring we can use?!,” She panicked — my acting was mediocre at best, but it worked. “I have one,” Brian chimed in and got down on one knee. The rest is history; however, thoroughly documented. Jay and Brian were married in Stillwater on July 13, 2012. Truly a unique engagement story!
