A Colorful Country Club Wedding at Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville, Minnesota
After meeting through eHarmony.com, newlyweds Darren Yauk (34 and a pilot) and Maggie Mattacola (33 and an executive at a non-profit) exchange emails for two months prior to their first date. The couple then quickly began dating and later got engaged when Darren surprised Maggie with a diamond ring tied around their dog's collar. "I said yes and there we were, sitting on the floor holding hands when our pup put his paw in my lap for approval," Maggie laughs. For their outdoor wedding in Roseville, the couple exchanged vows at the Midland Hills Country Club in front of 125 guests. "We chose the location since it has a huge outdoor space along with a beautiful banquet hall," Maggie says. "It was super easy for out-of-town guests to get to." The couple chose a rich color palette of yellow and burgundy (complete with bold sunflowers) to bring their fall wedding to life. As for wedding advice for future brides, Maggie says: "Don't stress. In the end, your wedding is one day, so just focus on preparing for marriage."
