From This Love Weddings…Many couples want to offer their guests a fun, relaxed yet stylish welcome to their wedding weekend. We took to creating a welcome dinner that’s sure to inspire. This romantic, organic, natural styled shoot was created at Minneapolis’ Uptown full service wine bar, Spill The Wine. We built the design around the elements of the beautiful space incorporating a wine tasting, chalkboards, and plenty of greenery.
We set the tone with a theme to have guests wine, dine, and unwind. Each place card included a note in beautiful calligraphy, “We pair well together, before we dine enjoy cheese and wine.” The pallette included a cheese and wine pairing featuring Rosé and red wines with a fun See-Swirl-Smell-Sip tutorial as well as wine tasting score cards. The table was dressed with a cascading garland of bay and olive branch mix with lush cream and ivory blooms. A bay, sliver dollar eucalyptus, olive branch mix was used to make the show-stopping chandelier.
