Rosetree Wedding | Sally + Andrew

Now that the weather is starting to get chillier, we are dreaming of Sally + Andrew’s Hawaii-inspired wedding day at Sally’s family cabin in Emily, MN. Sally + Andrew were both born and raised in the Midwest, but decided to make a life-changing move to Maui, Hawaii in 2010 and have loved every second of it! Although they came back to Minnesota to get married, they knew they wanted to incorporate a few tropical touches into their wedding day. We love the clean colors of white and navy combined with their hints of Hawaiian flair. Sally + Andrew, congratulations once again, and we hope you are enjoying married life in Hawaii!

From Sally (the beautiful bride):

We met and began dating in 2006 at the University of Kansas. We were both born and raised in the Midwest, so after college graduation we decided to make a big change and try our luck at moving to Maui, Hawaii. We have been living in Maui since 2010 and have loved every second! Andy works at Kapalua Golf, and it was only fitting that he proposed on the most iconic Hole #5 of the Kapalua Bay Course on the Pacific Ocean at sunset.

We decided the place that was most special to both of us was my family cabin in northern Minnesota. We wanted the look to be crisp, clean, and with a touch of Hawaiian influence. We chose navy and white as our colors with beautiful white orchids and lush tropical greenery. Our Minnesota friends and family worked hard all summer getting the property perfect for our wedding day.

Planning a northern Minnesota wedding from the middle of the Pacific seemed like a daunting task, so I hired Rosetree Weddings & Events as our wedding planner and day-of coordinator. Rosetree helped provide recommendations of vendors, helped coordinate decor and rentals, and helped keep me on a timeline of what needed to be done.

I loved our ceremony. We wrote the entire thing ourselves after reading many ceremonies online. We had our family friend, Pete, marry us and it was a great blend of traditional vows, humor, fun music, and we even did a Hawaiian Lei exchange. We incorporated a few Hawaiian songs we love, “Honey Baby” by Three Plus, and had our friend, Joe, play “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the ukulele. The reception music was incredible. Our group loves to dance, and I don’t think we sat down once!

Rosetree Wedding | Gina + Scott

Gina + Scott were married on a perfect July day at the gorgeous Camrose Hill Flower Farm in Stillwater, MN. The lush greenery and floral was in full bloom, creating an atmosphere that was nothing short of magical! As we all know, Minnesota summers can be very hot and muggy, but that didn’t stop this couple from having a STUNNING outdoor ceremony, complete with white umbrellas for guests and an enormous eucalyptus garland as the ceremony backdrop. One thing Gina wanted most for her wedding was lots and lots of greenery – and it was everywhere, loves! We had greenery draped all over the place, hanging above the head table, as runners along the farm tables, adorning the Bride & Groom’s chairs at the head table, surrounding the wedding cake from Wuollet Bakery…seriously, it looked like a fairy tale! We added plenty of white pillar candles and crystals to complete the whimsical tone of the evening. Gina + Scott, we are honored to have been a part of your enchanting wedding day, and we hope you are enjoying your lives together as husband and wife and continued success in your lovely storefront Velvet Moon and Dog Threads!!

From Gina (the beautiful bride):
“If you want to take the pressure off of wondering if everything will go as planned and just enjoy your day, I would strongly suggest hiring Rosetree to plan your wedding. The money we spent on our venue and wedding planner was the best money we spent – well worth every penny. I love the photos as well and think everyone did a wonderful job making the day as magical as it was. It couldn’t have been more perfect for us.”
