I have a gorgeous fall wedding to share with you today that is packed full of amazing little details. Heather and Justin were married on October 9, 2009 at a church in St. Paul with a reception at the Summit Manor. I don’t know if there is a more perfect venue for a fall wedding then a mansion on Summit Ave in St. Paul.

Many of the elements of this wedding were DIY, which helps with budget and adds a personal touch. The bride and groom had dried rye pots to line the entry way to the church and up at the alter. The favors were homemade maple syrup, apple butter, and strawberry jam. The metal leaves in the photo below are actually real leaves dipped in copper and were worn by the women in place of corsages. Amazing!

All of the photos were taken by Ben Berndt Photography and Dana Schoppe.


This is gorgeous.
