Rosetree Weddings | St. Paul College Club, Alexia + Nathalia

When we first met Alexia & Nathalia, we resonated with their simple yet elegant vision and their laid-back personality! With no date or venue set, we helped them create the day of their dreams at the beautiful St. Paul College Club.

Alexia adores flowers, and both brides have a mutual love for the outdoors. Their gorgeous garden ceremony needed little decoration, other than the fun paper flowers created by Alexia’s mother. One of our favorite elements of the ceremony was when all of the guests sang “A Whole New World” in celebration of this new marriage.

Following the ceremony, guests mingled in the mansion for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. People especially loved the brides’ signature cocktails! The reception was full of love, laughter and smooth jazz music, which achieved the mellow ambiance that the brides were hoping for.

Alexia & Nat couldn’t have been more relaxed throughout the planning process, which made our job a breeze. It was such a pleasure to be a part of their special day and hope they are enjoying married life together!

Rosetree Wedding | Justina + Max’s Hippie Chic Camp Ojiketa Wedding

If you love macrame, flowy organza skirts, bold, yet natural color choices, antiques,  and being 100% true to all the things that make you, you. THIS Camp Ojiketa wedding will make you flip. It’s the bee’s knees. And although it isn’t exactly professional to say, it’s #dopeAF.

Justine and Max are best friends turned lovers. Their relationship has been an exciting adventure of dream chasing. During the wedding planning,  they were residing in Colorado, where Max was the Head Brewer for Renegade Brewing Company.  NOW, they’re back in MN starting their own brewery in St. Paul (can’t wait to share more details about that)!

Max fills us in on the proposal story!

“For our engagement, I surprised Justine with a 3-Day mystery trip for her Birthday. I let her know to pack a bag of clothes for mixed weather and to be ready to spend a few hours in the car. I had booked us a room at the Tudor Rose Bed and Breakfast in Salida, Colorado. Justine’s Birthday was on Sunday so I filled the weekend with activities in the scenic little mountain-valley town. Justine suspected nothing as Sunday morning rolled around, if anything a little disappointed about turning another year older without being committed to the man that she loves. I suggested we take a walk down by the lazy stream that meanders through the town. One final straw to throw her off the trail, I gave her tickets to see Dolly Parton at Red Rocks that summer as a Birthday present. With her suspicions at an all time low, I led her another 30 feet down the trail before dropping to one knee and asking if she would Marry Me. There was some shouting, a blur, she said “YES!” and here we are.”

NOW, onto the wedding details!  The couple rented Camp Ojiketa, for the entire weekend. They had free use of the space and enjoyed celebrating for the entire weekend. About 100 guests stayed in the cabins on the property, so it was a great opportunity for everyone to have extra time with each other.

There were so many cool details from the wedding day that made it memorable for us.  The couple was striving for a mashup of rustic, bohemian and hippie, with a nod to their love of beer.  Ultimately they wanted something that was unique and intentionally reflected their journey as a couple.

They selected Rocker in Love as their photography team. As part of Rocker in Love’s US Wedding Tour, they’re on a quest to photograph a wedding in each state, which will soon become a book. How cool is that?!

The only flowers were the wedding party flowers. Justine wanted a cascading, ethereal look with whites, burgundy, and HOPS!  Hops were an important element for them (being the beer lovers that they are) and had to be present on her bouquet and his boutonniere. They’re actually on Max’s bowtie too!  Studio Emme rocked the request. Such a drool-worthy result!

We love that they opted for head wreaths for the bridesmaids, instead of the traditional bouquet. They paired beautifully with those amazing skirts – which you won’t even believe you can get on Amazon for less than $50! The look was playful, midsummer night festival-ish, and quintessential hippie.

Justina did the macrame backdrop herself for her ceremony and her dad built the frame. It turned out so great!  They also elicited help from their friends for everything from the invitations to the rings, and even Justine’s two-piece wedding dress  (her friend crafted the flowing skirt and she paired it with a fitted white top).

The actual ceremony was officiated by a dear friend as well. And we can’t forget to mention that World’s Finest band, and Max’s friends, came all the way across the country from Portland to play in their wedding!

The decor was very unique, the table tops were designed with lots of glass bottles in brown and green of all shapes, sizes, and textures. Lots of candles, brass, driftwood, forest menagerie vintage woodland animals, succulents, cattail and air plants came together for one of a kind centerpieces. Justine’s Aunt owns an antique shop in Iowa, so she brought all of the various items used on the tabletops and around the reception.

Justine & Max’s wedding isn’t your typical Minnesota wedding, BUT, we think it is a great representation of the state & the amazing people in it. Their wedding day is truly a reflection of the quirkiness that we all inherently have.  It reminds of us the Dr. Seuss quote “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love”

This is part one of a two-part post. Check back soon for their day after “Love Session”!

Lauren & Michah’s Shire in the Woods Wedding, McGrath Minnesota

A magical woodland retreat, Shire in the Woods,  was the perfect location for Lauren & Michah’s “camping themed” wedding day. Located in the countryside of McGrath, Minnesota, about two hours from Minneapolis.

This couple has such a great story- and they tell it amazingly well (and in true Lauren & Michah form). So, we’re  borrowing (okay, maybe stealing)  their words to share with you.

“The stage is set.

Lauren moves from Dallas to Austin. Years later, Micah moves from Minnesota.

Facebook.

Micah begins working at Facebook. Two months later, so does Lauren. We learn we both like dogs and whiskey, and enjoy a respectful working relationship.

First hike.

On a work trip, we hike Camelback Mountain near Scottsdale, AZ together in the morning. It turns out we both like hiking and we’re even cooler to hang out with when we’re not at work.

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco.

Weeks later on another work trip, we go on our first run together, 5 miles across the Golden Gate Bridge and back. The first of many to come.

First date in Fredericksburg.

Our first date together is a fateful trip to hike around Enchanted Rock with Scout. Scout is bit by a rattlesnake. We go into action mode to save Scout. We learn what each other is made of when times get tough, and how well we work together.

Trip to Grand Canyon & Zion Canyon.

First vacation together, and the first of many travels as a couple. Whether it’s at home or out adventuring, it’s better together.

Engagement on Enchanted Rock.

On November 5, 2016, we returned to Enchanted Rock to finish that original hike. This time instead of snakes on the trail, we find an accordionist and guitarist playing a song from the first record we listened to as a couple. Micah proposes, Lauren says yes, and Scout can’t wait to be a family! “

As for the wedding day- the photos speak for themselves. Everything about this quirky couple is perfection and we loved every minute of the day. From Lauren’s adorable tea-length lace wedding dress to Micah’s plaid shirt. To the carefree, lovable ceremony vows, to their furry companion, Scout. To the fantastic combination of succulents & billy balls, every single detail was tailored to the couple’s personality.

We’re so thankful to have clients like Lauren & Michah. They really allow their love to shine and take center stage on the wedding day- which is what it is ALL about.

Newlyweds at Science Museum of Minnesota

Rosetree Weddings | Amanda & Stephen’s Science Museum of Minnesota Wedding

Amanda and Stephen’s wedding was one of our most fun and unique of the year! Amanda is actually a crime scene investigator, and Stephen happens to be a scientist as well, so it seemed natural for them to make that their wedding theme. The reception venue- Science Museum of Minnesota was, without a doubt, the perfect choice!

After their traditional Catholic ceremony, the couple wanted to have a little fun for their portraits. Posting with the dinosaurs and a variety of other displays at the museum.  It’s so great when a couple can just have FUN with the day. Amanda and Stephen aren’t the least bit “stuffy” and really just enjoyed the planning process and the day.

We love how clever and unique the centerpieces are- this is a great case of DIY done well! It is really memorable and “offbeat”, and perfect for the couple. One of the biggest bonuses to this choice and that they’re repurposable!

Working with the new Mr & Mrs was wonderful. The day was lovely from start to finish and we’re thrilled and honored to have been their wedding planner & coordinator.

Wedding Party Gifts for your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

Finding the perfect gift for your bridesmaids and groomsmen (as well as your brides men and grooms gals) doesn’t have to be a chore. We know the options can be overwhelming, so we’ve assembled a quick reference list to spark your imagination.

Many couples forget to budget for this expense, so we’ll give you a tip now! We recommend that a bridesmaids/groomsmen gift be in the range of $50-$150. It is a big investment in time and money to be a member of a bridal party. And of course, your friends/family are more than happy to be a participant on such a major moment in your life. But, showing your appreciation with thanks and a token is not just good etiquette, but what you should do for these wonderful people in your life (you know they would do the same).

In our experience, there are two gifting categories that are always a hit.

  • Wearables
  • Consumables

When it comes to wearables, think along the lines of something thoughtful/sentimental,  useful and/or personalized. Some items can check off all the boxes, which makes it a sure fire hit for your crew/tribe/posse.

When it comes to consumables, we don’t necessarily mean food or beverage, but those are a great place to start! We’re speaking more of a generalization for something that should be used quickly.

 

 

Groomsmen/Best Man

Bar Items

One of our all time favorite groomsmen gifts is this decanter by Groovy Guy Gifts.  This beauty is refined and dignified. It looks amazing on the kitchen counter, on a bar cart or as a display piece on a bookshelf.  We’re actually pretty obsessed with ours and use it often! It’s a classic item with lots of personality.

To really elevate this gift, consider also including a favorite adult beverage to be used with said decanter.

 

bar-classic-decanter-4_3a50f088-e6bb-45e0-bb8a-e3a284ba5b62_large

Accessories 

Perhaps you have a crew of dudes that like to dress in stylish, dapper perfection. From cufflinks to money clips, a gentleman can appreciate a solid piece of metal. Ha!  This trio is a fantastic choice. The items are versatile, customizable and work great for both everyday use + wedding festivities.

wearables-to-the-9-s-tri-pack-2_large

 

If you’re a “shop local” supporter and prefer to browse for something in person, one of our favorite local shops is Woodchuck USA  – they have awesome bottle openers!

We’re partial to businesses that offer a stellar product and phenomenal service- so, of course, considering the team at Groovy Guy Gifts is amazing, we’re pretty sure you don’t need to look any further! 😉

 

Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor 

Robe, Shirt, Tank or Romper

As we’ve mentioned,  a wearable item is always a hit and of course, makes for adorable photos. We adore Show Me Your MuMu robes. They’re SO pretty and romantic. And come in a ton of great patterns and colors.
Screenshot 2017-08-12 15.19.27

To give these gifts a little extra “oompf”,  personalize it! Just keep this in mind-the downside to something monogrammed or personalized with a role versus a name, is that it may not be worn again.  Your bestie loves you, but she’s likely not going to wear her adorable “maid of honor” tank out to run errands. However, one that says “Sarah” or “Bestie” is much more usable in the long run.

 

Jewelry

Just about every lady we know can appreciate a tasteful accessory. Be it a bracelet, pair of earrings, necklace or hair piece, it’s hard to go wrong with a piece that coordinates with your ensemble.  We could spend hours on Etsy looking for the perfect fit. We also adore BHLDN.  The sweet, dainty piece below is a crowd pleaser!

Screenshot 2017-08-12 15.25.24

 

We’re suckers for a thoughtful goodie bag or box too. White Spruce Market here in Minneapolis has the cutest boxed gifts. And they always have great suggestions too.  Stop on by to see and tell ’em we sent you!

 

Experience

You can’t put a price tag on the gift of time with your closest friends. So, don’t be afraid to gift them with a trip to the spa, a weekend getaway or an exciting excursion. Be it one-on-one with each of the members of your bridal party or as a group, gifting an experience will be remembered for years to come!

Rosetree Weddings | Catherine & Jon’s Radisson Blu Downtown Mpls

Catherine & Jon’s wedding day was colorful and fun, with an endless amount of smiles and laughter from the newlyweds. This pair is a great match and were so great to work with! They held a church wedding and ballroom style reception at the Radisson Blu Downtown Mpls.

The day was all about color- pink, orange, red and yellow. Without the flowers, this look wouldn’t have been nearly as successful! The bouquet florals were a tropical mix of vibrant pink hydrangea, exotic yellow orchids, burgundy peonies, and orange roses.  The reception decor included the same florals, with the addition of red orchids, lime green miniature mums, and fuschia stock.  We have to give a round of applause Luna Vinca Floral for creating such great arrangements. No doubt they were a highlight of the day!

We spent some time obsessing over the cake table as well- the combination of rosette linen and rosette cake was so fun! The pop of color from the fresh flower topper was perfect to tie everything together!
During the reception, the couple took to the dance floor and danced into the night! Although it isn’t shared in the photos below, we have to say we thought the song choice for Father, Daughter dance, “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong, was perfection! It’s such a sweet song that embraces the whimsy that life can be. Which, coincidentally, also felt very applicable to the wedding “theme!”
We wish the happy couple all the best! If you want to find some behind the scenes images from the couple, check out their hashtag, #wecanchen!

Minneapolis-Wedding-Planner_Lafayette-Club_0208.jpg

Rosetree Weddings | Lindsay & Shane’s Lafayette Club Wedding

Lindsay & Shane’s wedding on a beautiful Spring afternoon over Memorial Day weekend. They held a traditional Christian ceremony at  Redeemer Lutheran Church and a timeless reception at Lafayette Club

Before the ceremony, the couple had a moving “first touch”- where they held hands and before the walk down the aisle.  We adore this idea.  They then said their “I Do” with an exquisite again the church’s stained-glass and stone altar.

Lindsay’s dress was stunning! It was elegant, glamorous and ultra feminine.  The low back and fitted embellished bodice paired with the soft tulle skirt was breathtaking! You could tell how beautiful she felt in the gown and Shane was blown away by how phenomenal she looked!

Her bouquet was a lovely mix of garden & traditional roses, babies breath, stock, eucalyptus and dusty miller. It had great “movement” and paired beautifully with her dress. Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets with the tiniest hint of peach/blush hue, which really complimented their smokey blue dresses.

We love planning wedding receptions at Lafayette Club.  It’s a beautiful, classic venue with superb service, gorgeous grounds and a fantastic view of Lake Minnetonka! They’ve also been around for over 100 years, which is quite charming.

Minnetonka Beach is only 25(ish) minutes west of downtown Minneapolis. It has a gorgeous landscape and feels so far from the city (while still being convenient).

The decor was neutral, yet romantic and timeless in soft ivory, white, gold, and subtle touches of peach.

The couple danced to the Christian/Gospel song, “Ocean” by Hillsong. The lyrics are so powerful and such a representation for their love for one another, which is also rooted so strongly in their Faith.

We were so happy to see this couple join as Husband and Wife. Every wedding is an honor and we thank them for allowing us the opportunity to serve them during this monumental occasion!

Love what you see? Give us a call- we’d love to help you with your big day! Oh! And we’d love for you to follow us on Instagram too!

Rosetree Wedding Tips & Advice: A Modern Twist on the Bouquet Toss Wedding Tradition

For this segment of our new Modern Twist series, let’s talk about the bouquet toss!

BloomLakeBarnWedding_8793

You may already know that it is “tradition” for single women to gather around the bride during the reception in hopes to catch the bouquet … signifying she will be the next lucky lady to tie to knot. This goes hand and hand with the /garter toss, as the single men gather to catch the garter, and then the two lucky individuals have a bit of rendezvous while he places the garter on the bouquet recipient’s leg. It’s not uncommon or unusual for couples to do away with this game during the reception (we’ve actually seen a rise in the number of couples who do away with this and the $1 dance).

If you’re worried about being tight for time, or are opting for a four hour reception (instead of five), the bouquet and garter toss, as well as the dollar dances, shoe game, etc can sometimes feel like an “interruption” if you have a guest list that really wants to mingle & party. If you’re searching for validation to switch things up- here it is. It’s A-OK with us!

However, some couples like the idea of tossing, but either feel it isn’t appropriate for their guest list or feel like it’s an outdated tradition. Hey, it’s your day, we’ll support your choice either way. But say you DO want to toss the bouquet, but need to mix it up a bit to make it feel right to you. Here are a couple of fantastic alternatives (especially if you don’t have many single friends).

Consider tossing the bouquet to married friends. Gather all of the ladies in your life that have already tied the knot and give them the chance to remember what it was like to hold a bouquet. Omit the garter toss all together. Allow the winning couple to share a dance (bonus points if they can pick the song.)

Song suggestions:

  • “Better Together”  -Jack Johnson
  • “You & Me” – Dave Matthews Band
  • “How Sweet it Is (to be loved by you)”

Consider tossing the bouquet to the children at your wedding. All attendees under, say, 15, gather on the dance floor to catch the flowers. They’ll feel like a princess!

Song suggestions:

  • “Happy” – Pharell
  • “ABC” – The Jackson 5
  • “Kids” – MGMT

Consider gathering ALL of the ladies and tossing in honor of love.  Everyone loves fresh blooms, so this is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. Why exclude anyone? From your mom to your niece to your high school best friend, get them ALL on the dance floor and toss with abandon.

Song suggestions:

  • “Over the Rainbow” – Israel Kamakawiwoʻole
  • “Shake it Off“ – Taylor Swift
  • “Just Another Day in Paradise” – Phil Vassar
  • “Everything She Does in Magic” –  The Police

Consider carefully choosing a member of your guest list to dedicate your bouquet too. Perhaps your mom never had the wedding she dreamed of. Or your Aunt is like a second mother to you. Or your grandmother who has been a shining example of resilience & dedication. Whatever the sentiment is, it will be thoughtful, memorable and unexpected.

Select a song that has special sentiment to the recipient. Have it play for a few moments before taking over the mic and announcing who gets the bouquet and why.

For the garter toss, you can apply these same ideas. Or just omit it all together!

As always, we’re happy to talk through ideas with you on this (and all of the other pressing wedding details that keep you up at night) and your DJ/Band may have some thoughts as well.

Rosetree Events | The Lumber Exchange Knot Pro Minnesota Mixer

There is something about a slight hint of warmth in the air, blossoming trees, the freshness of a new season moving in that makes us feel happy. That spring in our step and joy we feel for the Spring season was the inspiration for the decor/design for The Knot Pro Minneapolis mixer we recently planned. Bold, cheerful, colorful hues married with soft romance and industrial chic whimsy. It was a lot to pack into one design, but it worked!

The color palette really set the tone for all of the incredible details. From the incredible florals to the gorgeous linens, and the divine desserts, everything coordinated beautifully!  The linens were remarkable alone, as were the florals. Paired, they were stunning!  The menu was delicious from start to finish!

Because spring is synonymous with floral, it was the basis for most of the design. And not just flowers, but in the paper goods to the linen choice, we found a way to incorporate spring flowers in almost every single detail.

We had two separate spaces to design within the venue – Studio C Floral helped us with Sawyer’s Room, while St. Cloud Floral handled Dylan’s Room.

For the main space, Sawyer’s Room, we selected bold linens as one of our main anchor elements. We wanted something with a lot of wow factor- so it was all about a trio of color that could be tied together within a pattern, but also a texture. We opted for a bold floral print on high tops interspersed with a bright yellow. And then a petal texture linen in a soft blush pink and bold fuchsia.

The florals were out of this world! In the wedding world, most of us know that Peonies only come around (in all of their full glory) late in the Spring season. So we knew we needed this lush bloom within the centerpieces.  But it was better than our wildest dreams to see the actual designs!

There were so many gorgeous pieces created – the variety in blooms, as well as the texture, was awe-inspiring. From the tall greenery with hanging votives to the exquisite (and massive) pastel pieces. It was cheerful, yet romantic. Elegant, yet cozy. It was everything we love about Spring!

Dylan’s room was a bit more of a marriage between Whimsy + Kate Spade- but still inspired by Spring, albeit a slightly more tropical one than are blessed to see in Mpls.

Centerpieces were more restrained but still really beautiful & exotic. With unique floral choices like sunset protea, lady’s slipper orchids and parrot tulips, they made a big statement.

Our vendor team was amazing. Everyone was so great to work with and we are so grateful for them. Bringing a vision to life is hard work for our couples. But when it’s fellow industry pros, the pressure is ON! Everyone handled it beautifully and really went above and beyond.

Garden In the City Wedding Inspiration, as seen on Perfect Palette

This Garden in the City wedding inspiration photo shoot is pure romance. Inspired by the Most Beautiful Castle in Scottland (and Childhood Home of HM Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother),  The Clamis, we were aiming for a look that was dreamy and fresh. Springy and feminine, with a European countryside twist.

If you follow our blog & Instagram, you likely already know we have a soft spot for European inspired design.  And Shabby Chic is one of our favorite design inspiration styles. So this shoot was, without a doubt, one of our favorites of the year!

Muse was the perfect host venue for the shoot because it has a romantic chic vibe but is nestled right downtown, making it really convenient.

What really “made” this shoot, aside from the amazing floral, was the dress! With a slightly vintage flair, this lace, pearl embellished, low-back ivory ballgown is everything. There are almost no words to describe just how gorgeous it is. The White Room has incredible gowns, and this one truly fit the overall style beyond our wildest dreams. We love classic styles with a fresh twist – and somehow this gown was able to marry a timeless silhouette, with a unique, modern take on something typically seen as vintage.  We know, that’s a mouthful. In short, it’s a dynamic gown with all the right touches for a modern-day princess!

The invitation suite and florals were a perfect match! Bel Fiore used the design from A Milestone Paper Co. as their inspiration. We weren’t in the slightest bit surprised that they were able to pull off the look to a T! The soft purple tones are gorgeous and the greenery is fabulous. And the wall treatment? Swoon! The bouquet was a lovely mix of exotic “English garden” florals- the texture was exquisite.

We also can’t forget to note the bite-size delights provided by Mintahoe and Farina Bake Shop. They both did such an amazing job incorporating these floral details and color theme. It was pure artistry on both of their parts!

We hope you find these photos as wonderful as we do! Oh and be sure to check out the Perfect Palette Editorial Feature here too!
