Gorgeous Black + White Wedding

We had another fabulous wedding this weekend. The wedding was held at St. Ambrose Church in Woodbury, MN and the reception was held at Harriet Island Pavilion in St. Paul, MN. It was a fantastic event. The sun sets early this time of year here in Minnesota, but with the wedding at 5 pm the photographers were able to take all of the pre-wedding photos outside! {ok, it was a bit cold but the payoff will be amazing!} Check back soon for photos of the wedding. We can't wait to see what the photographers captured through their lenses.

We were able to transform Harriet Island
 from a simple brick building to a
soft and warm room with lots of fabric and candlelight.

The head table was draped with black tablecloths.
This table's runner was comprised of chair sashes and ribbon.
Take a close look at the pics - you won't be able to tell they were chair sashes.

Each guest table was draped with a black tablecloth and a Dandy Damask table runner.
All tables were illuminated by lots of candles, and the guest tables had tall cylinders containing submerged hydrangeas and a floating candle.
Keeping those flowers from floating to the top was tricky...but well worth the effort!

The Candy Buffet was a huge hit! 
Plain and peanut M&M's, Mike & Ikes, Skittles,
Gummy Bears, Licorice, Hershey Kisses and an assortment of Wonka candies
made up the yummy candy buffet menu.
Many refills throughout the night kept it a poplular spot for young and the not so young!

Congratulations Matt and Erin on a beautiful event and your new life as Husband & Wife!
