There was lots to love about this weekend’s sweet Minnesota wedding, but I must admit N+N had the cutest cocktail hour entertainment I have ever witnessed.
Man oh Man, I love love love love my job! And I love love love love having a Sloth at a Wedding!! #millertime14
Thank you Natalie + Nick for including me in your wedding festivities.
Enjoy the preview! XOXOX
from the bride:
Favorite part of wedding planning? – Creating! I had such a joy (and stress!) creating the invitations, Save the Dates, Place Holders, Décor and Wedding Program. I love that kind of stuff!
What you are most looking forward to? I am thrilled to party hardy with my dearest friends and family. And I’m excited to be off this wedding diet! Woo hoo!
Your Favorite Part of the Day? – Seeing my man down the aisle. What pure untamed joy.
Advice for other brides planning their day? – Get started early! Make as many decisions as you can and just keep moving forward at full speed. When the day draws near, you will be thankful you did. Just keep moving, there’s always more to do. That way, then the week, day, hour draws near, you can pay attention to the people, love, and moments you get to celebrate.

Our coaches joined us, and our dear friends stood up for us in the ceremony. How amazing it is to have such a wonderful “family”, even after all these years!

I appreciate her creative touch and willingness to help throughout the years of planning! Thank you to all our families and friends who travelled to join us through the snow!
