An Intimate Fall Wedding at Irvine Park in St. Paul, Minnesota

Alexandra Daniels (27 and an operating room contracting specialist) and Jared Schuster’s (26 and a business development associate) autumnal celebration began with an intimate ceremony in Irvine Park, where guests perched on wooden benches built by Alexandra’s brother. Then, more guests joined for a greenery-filled candlelit dinner reception. “We wanted our color palette to complement October’s fall colors,” Alexandra says. “Jewel tones seemed like a great way to bring some romance into our overall design.” Her bridesmaids donned vibrant gowns and carried soft clutches of roses, dahlias, ranunculus and scabiosa. Natural additions, including the stationery’s botanical design, filled the day as did some DIY touches. Alexandra calligraphed the place cards and signage herself. A leafy garland accented with orange ranunculus and pomegranates lined tables.
