A Rustic Wedding at Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota
With leafy branch motifs on the stationery and gorgeously textured florals, Tessa Somermeyer (32 and a nurse) and Brendan McCaffrey (29 and a bakery manager) brought the outside in for their rustic wedding. Tessa even added a little foliage to her look with a Habutai silk rose crown, cut, dyed and made by Erica Elizabeth. The blush roses definitely went with her layered silk organza Dolce & Gabbana gown and long, traditional veil. Needless to say, she looked stunning. Wild-looking roses, ferns, wildflowers, orchids and moss filled all the bouquets, and also topped all the reception tables for a woodland aura throughout Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It helped that the sculpture garden and terrance were naturally gorgeous, and the skyline room had amazing vistas of the Twin Cities. Tessa and Brendan used each space for interesting transitions from one wedding activity to the next. One of our favorite parts was the added personality, such as Tessa and Brendan's first steps as husband and wife to "The Throne Room" from "Star Wars" or their first dance to the "Top Gun" song "Take My Breath Away,” by Berlin. Talk about having fun with the day! See all our favorite steal-worthy details, beautifully captured by Liz Banfield, below.
