Minnesota Lilac and Green Wedding Ideas

Happy Thursday and thank you for visiting our little wedding blog. We are thrilled to share with you a little Minnesota wedding from one of our very own preferred vendors, Geneoh Photography. Jamie is a event coordinator for USA Hockey and Ryan is a forward for the Edmonton Oilers.

They met in college and from the very beginning Ryan knew Jamie was going to be his wife, super love when that happens. They got married at Noerenberg Gardens and had there reception at grandparents house on Lake Minnetonka.

From The Bride

We wanted to show all of our guests why we love Minnesota so much. Why we call Lake Minnetonka home. So we did just that. We had and outdoor tent party. We catered Famous Dave’s because Ryan wanted ribs, chicken, salmon, mashed potatoes and vegetables. I didn’t want the typical red and white checked barbecue so I rented white ceramic platters, bowls, and stainless steel serving utensils from Apres and made it an eloquent summer barbecue. We had family and friends fly in from all over the U.S. and Canada. To honor our Canadian relatives, the Canadian National Anthem was played during fireworks. I cut and glued Canadian Maple Leafs on all the clothes pins that held the seating cards. We also hung a Canadian flag on the flag pole outside my parent’s house.

I am a perfectionist so my wedding was all about little details. We had a week of time line and a day of schedule. Everything ran on time and we were even ahead of schedule. Green maple leafs, hockey pucks as table numbers (spray painted sliver with green ribbons and green table numbers), decorated bathrooms, fans at the ceremony in case guests got hot, great food, a DJ that knows how to keep the party going.

I wouldn’t change anything about our Wedding. Ryan let me make it everything I could have dreamed of. Most of the day was a surprise for him, I didn’t involve or waste his time in the little decisions. And at the end of the night he pulled me aside, kissed me and said thank you for making this the best day of my life, I have dreamed about our wedding for a long time and you blew my dreams away and made this day so much more than what I ever could have imagined.
