one of the highlights from last weekend’s trip to minneapolis was having the honor to attend matt & mallary’s wedding. shortly after mat & mal got engaged, they moved away from phoenix, and we had to say goodbye to one of our favorite double-date couples, so it was fun to be reunited with them.
the wedding ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cathedral of St. Paul (click here to see) followed by an out-of-this-world cocktail hour and reception at The St. Paul Hotel. Mal’s an event planner plus her mom is a spunky, creative-minded woman who pulled out all the stops for her only daughter’s I Do’s.
a lot like me, Mal loves all things shabby chic, pink and girly. the day was perfect down to every last detail. i wish my photos did it more justice, but you’ll get a glimpse. besides the aesthetics, the day flowed perfectly, which is so important. the timing of everything was spot on starting with the 2pm ceremony followed by a break before the 5:30pm cocktail hour, dinner, toasts, first dances, cutting the cake, a live band playing all kinds of classic rock mixed plus a touch of electronica for the groom. we ate, toasted, danced, drank and ate again until after midnight (everyone loved the late night mini mac & cheese, sliders, fries and dessert station)!
such a wonderful day and we were thrilled to be a part of it. to all my midwest blog readers who came out of the closet – i better see each of you as official followers soon – it was so fun (and flattering!) to meet you all!
