A Flower-Filled Loft Wedding at Aria in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Every detail surrounding Falen Bonsett (31) and Paul Lambert's (32) flower-filled loft wedding was seriously chic – from a pink and gold custom invitation suite to a not-so-subtle flower wall that nearly stole the show. "The flower wall was one of the things I most excited about," Falen explains of the pink and green backdrop covered in peonies, roses and ranunculus. The music-loving couple (they're both radio co-hosts!) quickly settled on their loft venue before seeking out the help of their Minneapolis-based planner, The Wedding Guys. "I hosted a charity event at Aria and fell in love with it," Falen says of her choice to book that specific space. "Plus, I really liked that I could transform it into anything and have both the ceremony and reception in the same location." Armed with Kentucky Derby-themed details and a color palette of gold, blush and orange; Falen and Paul incorporated horseshoes and plenty of Mint Juleps into their flower-filled fete. After exchanging vows in a short ceremony in front of 150 guests, the newlyweds retreated to their candlelit reception, where they shared a sweet first dance to "You're The One" by The Black Keys. Guests were even treated to Oaks Lily and Mint Julep cocktails along with a variety of Mexican and Asian menu options and one sweet cupcake station. As for wedding day advice, Falen advises to splurge on one specific vendor over the rest: "I wasn't going to book a videographer, but I'm so thankful that I did!"
