As we head into the long months of winter, I have a lovely summer wedding to share with you today. Amanda and Steve were married in July 2009 at the McNamara Alumni Center at the U of M. This is a favorite venue for many MN brides with its gorgeous tall ceilings and unique architecture, not to mention the exclusive caterer is D’Amico and Sons, who never disappoints.

The photographer was Jenny Hansen of Divine Photography and Sweet Peas Floral was behind all the beautiful flowers. Amanda also had a unique color scheme of peridot and purple. My favorite detail of this weekend is the all the candles placed around the ledges at the reception.

Below is just a sampling of some of Amanda’s favorite photos from her wedding day.

The gorgeous bouquets.

These candles bring a soft, romantic feel to the room.
Amanda and Steve did a non-traditional dessert of dark chocolate cheesecake and strawberry shortcake. How good does that look?
