After a recent cold, and super gloomy week her in Kansas City, I’m ready for spring, and today’s real wedding seems to fit the bill. Although Pam and Seth’s lovely nuptials took place in the fall, their color palette and over all theme is romantic and classic, which makes it perfect for almost any season throughout the year.
Who, What, Where ~~ Stillwater, Minnesota. Ceremony and Reception: Stillwater Library. Photography: Erin Johnson Photography. Event Planner: Aalon Events. Flowers: La Petite Fleur. Make-up: Matthew Singer. Transport: Stillwater Trolley.
Pam wore a six pence in her shoe the whole wedding day. At one point she thought she had lost it but found it weeks later on her closet floor. She says she plans on starting her own family tradition by handing it down to her daughter to carry on their wedding day.
Right from the start Pam let me know that she is not “artsy” so there weren’t a lot of DIY projects for her and Seth’s wedding. However she had a very specific vision of what she wanted their day to look like and relied on her talented vendors to make it come to life.
The beautiful flowers were created by the talent at La Petite Fleur, and were a perfect fit for the romantic feel that Pam was looking for.
One of Pam’s favorite parts of the wedding was the exchange of vows. They had beautiful weather for their outdoor festivities, and held hands as they said their heartfelt I do’s. Pam had purchased a veil, but broke tradition by deciding not to wear it for the ceremony or reception.
Although their reception took place in September, they had a beautiful indian summer day. Pam said guests couldn’t get over the outdoor venue, and beautiful weather, and they were even able to cancel the tent they had rented so that people could enjoy the party out in the open.
Pomanders from the ceremony doubled as modern reception centerpieces.
Another favorite moment of the night? The first dance. Pam said it was an emotional moment, and she didn’t realize anyone was taking pictures to capture it. She said that her and Seth felt so lucky to have all their family and friends there to share their day with them. You can really see all the joy and love in this last picture.
A huge thank you to Pam and Seth for sharing their day with all of us, and also to Erin Johnson Photography for submitting their wedding.
