Real Weddings / / Courtney + Ian 08.17.19

Courtney + Ian’s wedding at Lumber Exchange Event Center in Downtown Minneapolis was complete with unique details including handmade wooden floral bouquets and boutonnieres, centerpieces with framed photos of the couple, and a cake topper with the bride & groom surrounded by their pups because who doesn’t love dogs?! Courtney + Ian said “I do” by having Ian’s uncle officiate their wedding as well as by having one of their groomsmen sing and play guitar during their ceremony. While the ceremony was short and sweet, it was filled with special touches for Courtney + Ian to cherish as they look back on their perfect wedding day.

Courtney + Ian's guests were welcomed to cocktail hour as the newlywed couple took a breather in the bridal suite to relax just the two of them (we even handed off champagne to them as they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife!) and Courtney + Ian joined social hour before their grand march. Dinner was served and guests enjoyed entrees including chicken with wild rice and a veggie medley, braised beef short ribs, and cupcakes for dessert. Following first dances guests joined everyone on the dance floor and made their way to the photo booth until the very end of the evening so you know everyone had a great time!
