Rustic Holiday Wedding

Apparently the snow hasn't quite given up yet, so we'll use today to reflect on this Romantic Holiday wedding and swoon in it's beauty.  Anna and Erik's Rustic Winter Wedding at Rush Creek Golf  Course in Maple Grove, MN will be long remembered for many reasons, not least of which was the chilling cold -4 temperature on their wedding day!  Thank you to one our favorite photographers, Lacey with Lace / Hanky Photography for shooting these unbelievably beautiful images! We look forward to seeing them in print in the Fall issue of The Knot Minnesota Magazine!

A handmade shawl and mittens kept the stunning bride warm...not to mention her handsome groom!

Peonies in December...oh yeah, Fleurtation by NSE made that happen! Mixed with baby's breath, Vendela roses, feathers and pine cones they equaled winter floral perfection.

Talk about Bridesmaids of the Year - these gals happily took photos in -4 degree conditions! At least their hands and feet were nice and cozy...


It's all in the details and this wedding had so many! Pine cones, cinnamon sticks, chunky knits...we loved them all!

Congratulations Anna & Erik on your magical winter wonderland wedding! Let's hope we are having our last snowfall of the season as we prepare for the weddings of Summer 2014.

Color My World: Lutsen 2014 Winter Bridal Expo

NSE braved the snow and icy roads to make the trek to Lutsen Resort for the 2014 Winter Bridal Showcase.  No matter the season, Lutsen's natural beauty never ceases to amaze us.  These brave little berries were picture perfect as they added pops of red amid the thick blanket of white snow.

Beautiful Dahlias, Wax-flower, and Scabiosa Pods also added color to our day.  Our Fleurista's enjoyed creating this masterpiece to show off these vibrant shades of purple.

 Our table display was a hit with everyone with its colorful and informative pieces.

We Love, Love, Love, our new promotional materials.  Color and Information = Perfect 

We loved meeting all the fabulous new couples that attended the showcase.  It was so much fun talking with each one of them about all of their wedding plans and how we can help them bring their visions to life.

Relaxing by the beautiful fire in the Lutsen Lodge is a must.  What a wonderful way to wrap up the day.

Winter may be beautiful, but we are definitely looking forward to all of the weddings that await us this summer at Lutsen Resort!
