Kia & Alexander’s wedding day was one for the books with details of art deco vibes in one of the most sought after, nationally awarded wedding venues, ARIA Mpls. Complete with crystal chandeliers, beautiful exposed brick walls, and all around gorgeous architecture, this historic industrial event venue in downtown Minneapolis was the stunning canvas for Kia & Alexander’s wedding day. buck & rose is honored to have been a small part in Kia & Alexander’s big day providing Wedding Day Coordination. We kicked off our 2019 wedding season with some of the best vendors in town. Beautiful blooms which included a stunning hanging install, designed by Munster Rose. Hunter green linens and brushed gold flatware by Linen Effects created simple, yet pretty place settings. One of our favorite details? Kia & Alexander’s menu was anything but traditional wedding fare. Surdyk’s Catering served guests a variety of options including one of the most popular being the duck leg ramen with ginger, star anise dashi, baby bok choy, and snap peas. Following dinner, guests enjoyed delicious wedding cake almost too pretty to eat by Thirsty Whale Bakery and everyone danced the night away thanks to entertainment by Instant Request. Their entire wedding day was captured by the amazingly talented Sarah Ascanio Photography.
