Minnesota Arboretum Wedding – The Home Demonstration Garden


Nicole and Scott had the perfect end-of-spring day for their wedding at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, MN.  Everyone there was involved in this intimate ceremony, sharing lots of smiles and happy tears as they all celebrated Nicole and Scott’s life together.  These two are absolutely the best of friends who enjoy every second they spend together, and it was definitely reflected in their wedding!

They went with a simple, classy color palate of yellow, grey, and white, which worked perfectly with all of the beauty that the Arboretum had to offer them.  They decided not to have a first look before the ceremony, preferring to save that first look for when Nicole walked down the aisle, but we took lots of time after their vows to explore the grounds and take some photos of the two of them together.  I don’t think Scott took his eyes off of his new bride the whole time!
