Scottsdale, ARIZONA :: Urban Love at Bentley Gallery // Real LGBT Wedding

Even after 3 years, the wedding of Marti Hoffer and Jessica Conaway on Sunday 22nd 2012 still stands out in my mind. One, because it was such a fun wedding not only to create flowers for, but also to attend as a guest. Secondly, it was such a moving ceremony. The ceremony took place at Shadow Rock Church with these floor to ceiling windows that only added to the spirituality of the entire ceremony. Marti and Jessica both carried these gorgeous bouquets full of Schwartzwalder calla lilies and Black Magic roses, which really popped against their white attire. After a very sweet ceremony, guests moved to the Bentley Gallery for a crazy reception. The couple wanted an interesting table set, so we combined rectangular Roman tables, circular tables, and round tables to create a large variety. The tables were full of candles really setting a beautiful ambiance with the gallery. The escort cards were hung on weighted ribbon tailings suspended from the ceiling with place cards attached to them, which ended up look like a really cool art installation that complimented the venue and the eclectic art on the walls. A coffee food truck was also brought into the venue and we made a little donut station right next to it.

Minneapolis, MINNESOTA :: Scott & Kelly :: A Traditional Wedding // Real Wedding

:: A Traditional Wedding ::

Submitted by :: Thea Volk of Rivets & Roses

Scott and Kelly had their wedding on November 15th, 2014 in Minneapolis, Minnesota at Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church (oldest church in MPLS still in use). Following their traditional wedding that was surrounded by family and close friends, they ended their day at the Town and Country Club that overlooks the Mississippi River in St. Paul, MN.

It was a wintry, black tie wedding at this historic venue in Minneapolis/St. Paul featuring ivory and evergreen florals, gold, personalized bridesmaids necklaces. Light snow fell throughout the day, in-between a stop for hot toddies at the location of the Bride and Groom’s engagement of family portraits under an original-vintage chandelier at the doorway of the church. A fire warmed the atmosphere at the country club reception and a sparkler topped their all-white 4-tier cake, made by MPLS great “Buttercream Cakes and Desserts”.
