As a gal who loves all things wedding-related, I am pretty lucky right now to have my two best friends engaged and in the middle of planning their weddings. Kristin’s wedding will be local, in downtown St. Paul next September with an eclectic feel of both modern and vintage with a super unique color scheme of pewter, red and tiffany blue. Amy’s wedding is in Washington DC next October and is going to be a 4-day extravaganza of a western/christian wedding (eco-themed) and a pretty traditional Indian ceremony and reception. I am very excited for both weddings!

Kristin came over yesterday for a fabulous brunch (mushroom shallot quiche, homemade waffles, mimosas and bloody marys, more on that to come in a post later this week) and we sat down and tackled her inspiration board.

Kristin’s ceremony is going to be held at a Catholic church in South Minneapolis followed by a reception at the MN History Center. The MN History Center has amazing architecture and a unique space that allows for a cocktail hour held on the balcony, followed by dinner in an open rotunda and dancing with views of the capital.

I love the details Kristin is planning for her day, gorgeous red flowers, candles in mason jars for a romantic feel and how amazing is that cake? We found that from The Cake Girls and hopefully it can be replicated at a local bakery in the Twin Cities.

Oh and did I mention I am Kristin’s matron of honor?! Very excited.

I’ve said this before but I love love love inspiration boards. They are very easy to make and really bring a vision to life.
