Whimsical Modern Wedding by Karen Feder Photography

29 May

This whimsical modern wedding took place at Cafe and Bar Lurcat in Minneapolis.  How gorgeous is the detailing of this bride’s Demetrios fit and flare wedding dress?  I adore the yellow and gray color palette and sophisticated modern vibe of the urban venue.  The couple made their day especially memorable and unique by hiring a painter to create a piece of artwork during their reception to remember their special day.  What a creative idea!

From the Photographer: It never intended to happen (well it really never does!).  Ryan was in his hum-drum of every day life at the office, when by chance he met Kelly.  She was kind-hearted and had many of the same interests as he did.  After a couple of months of passing by chance at the office, the two decided to go out for drinks and ended up talking for 4-5 hours.  A few days later Ryan called Kelly for their official first date.  Not too long after that, the couple planned a trip up to northern Minnesota to view the changing fall leaves.  A year later they decided to go on that same trip.  On the first night Ryan went out for “groceries” and decorated the bonfire pit at the resort, got a fire going and tried to calm his nerves while Kelly was unpacking in their room not knowing what was going to happen next!  When Ryan came back, he escorted her down to the pit and proposed!

Water Street Inn Wedding from Natalie Champa Jennings Photography

14 May

Stillwater is one of my favorite places in Minnesota to visit!  The cute shops, amazing restaurants and back in time feel are hard to resist.  Nikki and John’s wedding took place in this charming historic city at the Water Street Inn located downtown on the St. Croix River.  Before the ceremony, the couple and their wedding party journeyed to a local orchard for some fun photo ops.  I’m loving the rich gray and vibrant yellow.  This color combo is stunning together.

From the Photographer: What an amazing Stillwater wedding. The trolley, lift bridge, fabulous bright flowers, river, and super-in-love bride and groom made this Minnesota wedding SO memorable. The Water Street Inn is delightfully quaint. Sitting next to the river it contains tons of antique charm and overlooks the outdoor wedding site where John and Nikki tied the knot.

But not before an old trolley ride to an orchard for some fantastic outdoor group and couple portraits. Nikki was inspired by nature and wanted her photographs to be vibrant. And they are! Despite the sun hidden for most of the day Nikki & John’s photographs shine with color and energy.

Every last detail of this wedding was bright and exciting. Definitely one not to miss!

Yellow and Gray Wedding Inspiration Board

14 Nov yellow and gray rosette backdrop

Cheery canary yellow and graphite gray make a lovely pair!  This inspiration board would be a fabulous scheme for a wedding at a modern venue such as the Rochester Art Center.  The vibrant yellow hue with a rich neutral, simple geometric shapes and interesting textures would look amazing with the clean, simple lines and blank canvas of white walls at the Art Center.

If you are a bride-to-be and would like me to create a board to help inspire your own wedding, please email me (minnesotawedding [at] ymail [dot] com) with the subject inspiration boards.  Let me know your color palette, wedding date/season, theme and any other details you would like to share!
