To be totally honest, I was never the girl who could pull of that cool billowing, boho sort of look. Preppy and polished is much more my style, but that doesn’t mean I don’t long to live vicariously through those who can. And this Minnesota bride? Well, she’s sort of my hero. With a wedding that embodies all my boho dreams brought to life, I could spend forever in Paper Antler’s photos right over here.
From the Bride… We wanted our wedding to be a celebration that reflected the joy we find in nature and creativity. For these reasons, we chose a whimsical venue in the woods of Juliane James Place. Everything felt incredibly personal, from the handmade dinnerware to the homemade desserts baked by our loved ones. Our color palette consisted of mainly neutral and copper tones, allowing the greens of the trees and blue of the lake to provide the color.
We also incorporated some different textures like feathers, ferns, lace and patterned bow ties for the groom and his groomsmen. An after-ceremony tea time served as our cocktail hour, complete with hard sweet tea, lemonade, and freshly baked scones. As a girl who grew up in the south, this addition seemed quite fitting. All of these details made the day feel magical, even sacred, but our family and friends truly made this day the best day of our lives.
