Colorful Minneapolis Backyard Wedding

This backyard wedding in Northeast Minneapolis was beyond beautiful! Jenny and Jon had such a gorgeous day full of details that they made with their family and friends.

It was truly an afternoon fool of bliss and joy !! Since the beginning I could see how everyone was so proud and happy to be there. We had wild flower arrangements,  a pink veil and a flower crown, and Chowgirls amazing food.  Their lovely Minneapolis backyard wedding was full of colors and smiles. The ceremony was filled with hugs and laughter.  And flowers! The beautiful giant paper flowers were made by Meg with Nutmeg Style.

I felt like I was in a magical land. It was such a dream to notice all the little details and see everyone’s involvement in the preparations. What a wonderful day! I am so happy that I got to be a part of this incredible day with these two incredible people.
