Minnesota Wedding At The Romantic Woods Chapel
Wedding Style: Casual, fun, relaxed.
Wedding Colors: Turquoise | Coral | Gray | Ivory
Be prepared to smile a whole bunch. Jonas and Zoe's relaxed and playful Minnesota wedding was nothing but joy, joy, joy! We could go on and on about the darling ring bearer and adorable flower girls in tulle skirts, the irresistible color scheme of turquoise and coral, and the gorgeous rustic ceremony locale of The Woods Chapel. Joy around every corner and so much fun--through the humorous ceremony to the speeches, Cigar Bar, and dancing at the end. Enjoy as Zoe takes us through highlights from their big day and wedding in the woods.
What they wore...
My dress was from Project Runway designer, Leann Marshall. My shoes were bejeweled flip flops which were totally comfortable and matching our relaxed style. My sweet bridesmaids all chose their own coral dresses while my bridesmen looked dapper in boat shoes and mix-matched coral bow ties. The same went for my husband’s side except for the dress was turquoise/mint as were the bow ties.
Highlights from the day
I’d have to say the highlight was marrying my best friend! The cigar bar that I surprised Jonas with was a hit. The dance floor was hopping. Having all of our loved ones together was a definite highlight. Our wedding music (singers and musicians) were all friends and they sounded amazing.
And what's a Bride & Flower Girl without a little sass?!
Advice you’re glad you took
I was advised to really take in every moment. I did that as much as I could. As anyone who has had a wedding knows, it can be quite a whirlwind. Really enjoying the day and the people was important to me.
Advice you wish you’d taken
I wish I had hired a wedding planner. I did a lot of planning from Hawaii in a very short period of time. It would’ve been nice to have had extra eyes and ears on the entire event as a whole. Although, my mother and mother-in-law did their fair share of planning and helping which was a HUGE relief!
Advice you’d like to give
Slow down. Soak in the day because it will go by so quickly. Also, plan as early as possible. Procrastinating only leads to more challenges and things not getting done. Last minute fixes are a real pain and can be a damper on the entire process.
Best part of the whole wedding day
Besides marrying my best friend, I really loved the four speeches. The man of honor, best man, and both fathers were all so different and unique. I was moved by each one of them for different reasons.
About Their Wedding Stationery
Jonas and Zoe personalized the Luminous Charm Invite suite to their wedding style. Zoe said, "It was relaxed and the color scheme was exactly right. I loved it so much that I still use my return labels with our new last name. I loved how there was something unique about each design for all the suite items: from the invitations to the place cards, it all had the same vibe. It was perfect."
"I loved working with MagnetStreet. I was able to personalize designs with color and fit to make invitations, programs, and thank you cards that were really out-of-this-world. The staff was kind and helped me to get my products in time for each event."
Congrats Jonas and Zoe! Thanks for sharing your big day with all of us!
A message from Zoe
I just want to say how grateful I am to all who helped make this day the best day of our lives. Around 9:00 pm, my new husband told me that he had had the best day ever and that was the best gift I received all day ... thanks to all of you! I will never forget every special moment that you helped to create!
