We are so excited to share this mint and gold wedding with pops of coral. It is such a fun color palette for a spring or summer wedding – in fact we did an inspiration board on this color combination that you can check out here. Anyways back to these gorgeous photos by Kate Becker!
“Alex + I were married on a beautiful July day in a quaint Lutheran church in Southern Minnesota surrounded by our closest family and friends. I would love to share with you what inspired our special day. Our wedding had many traditional elements; however, I would say we were really able to make it unique to “us.”If I had to describe our wedding theme it would be somewhere in between a rustic chic to country elegance. Our reception took place at Farmamerica, the Minnesota Agricultural Interpretive Center. Here you can find sites such as an 1850’s farm, a one-room schoolhouse, a feed mill, a blacksmith shop, a protected prairie land, and a small country church. The country church was my personal favorite, where we had many pictures taken. Both my husband and I grew up in small farming communities, which made the agriculture inspired venue a perfect fit. The reception hall contained the many different elements needed to bring our vision to life. These elements included natural wood beams, endless natural lighting resonating from the grand windows of the head table backdrop, and all wrapped within a rustic barn feel. From day one of wedding planning, mint and gold were the colors that inspired me. The colors were perfect for a July wedding in Minnesota, and the best part was my husband was completely on board with it– he even requested that his pocket square be mint colored–!!! Mint and gold inspired many details in our wedding including the bridesmaid dresses and jewelry, the groomsman’s ties, table décor, and decorations. Despite the major role the two colors played, I also wanted to incorporate different shades of pink like coral and blush. All of these colors were cohesively and uniquely brought to together by one of my favorite things, paper!!! Gina, at Ginger P Designs, was able to create matching save the dates, invitations, name cards, menu cards, and custom signs that were placed around the reception area. In addition to the unique stationary, the vision would not have been complete without the two ladies that brought the decor to the next level. Tamie Collins, owner of Zinnia’s boutique in Waseca, MN, helped us bring this mint and gold theme to life. She utilized antique brass goblets and candelabras as well as painted milk glass mint green and filled them with beautiful flower arrangements, which emphasized the different green and pink hues. Catalina Quast, an independent designer from Janesville, MN, brought the décor altogether by arranging the space to absolute perfection, with her, no detail went unnoticed. When your wedding day has come to an end, you are left with only memories and photographs of your special day. Looking back to nearly a year ago, one memory that I will never forget was escaping the dance with my new husband, and having our photographer, Kate, capture our happiness of the day and our love for each other under the setting sun.” – Bethany (the bride)
