Jill + Brad

We feel very honored and lucky to have been chosen as wedding planners for Jill + Brad.  The wedding and reception took place at the Carlson Towers Rotunda in Plymouth, MN on a sunny and beautiful April afternoon.

The colors of the wedding were peacock blue with red and black accents.  We think the favors were fantastic and reflected the event perfectly.  Two glass coasters for each guest with L-O-V-E spelled out in black and white block squares.  The centerpieces were made up of the bridesmaids floral arrangements in cylinder vases and larger vases filled with curly willow, vines with red beads, water and a floating candle.  Simple, yet beautiful.

To tie in with the theme, the cake was a white 3-tier cake with red velvet cake hiding inside.  Buttercream of St. Paul really did a fantastic job with this cake.

Jill + Brad are a very cool couple.  He has a bit of good 'ol southern boy in him, and she is a sweet midwestern girl.  Together they make a great pair.  They definitely are loved by their family and friends which was evident by the love and warmth that eminated throughout the night.

Congratulations to the Happy Couple!!!!

These are FABULOUS!!!

Knit-n-Jules began as a passion for knitting.  Julie began to knit before she could write...learning to use needles before age five. She was fascinated seeing older women at church knitting. She begged them to teach her how to knit, and every week would ask to learn a new stitch. She continued to knit throughout her childhood, finishing her first sweater out of Red Heart acrylic yarn in third grade. In home economics in high school, students were required to learn basic knitting. Since she already knew the subject beyond her years, Julie fought off boredom by helping friends learn to knit. During 10th grade, she injured her knee. Unable to take part in her other hobbies, knitting provided entertainment and a source of comfort to her.   With that passion Julie "Jules" has created quite a business knitting sweaters, tanks, lingerie...and best of all {at least to us} Bridal Wraps.

Julie likes to use local materials or sustain women industries in South Africa when purchasing her yarn and each piece is hand knit. She loves to design and create something wonderful to surround the bride with warmth and love that will be able to be worn over and over again and become a timeless treasure.
