The Gardens of Castle Rock Wedding | Saint Paul Wedding Photographer

Rebecca and Ryan had their September wedding at The Gardens of Castle Rock in Northfield, MN. Rebecca had this venue picked out long before Ryan popped the question! Back when they were dating, they planned a trip to Colorado to visit a friend of Rebecca’s. While planning the trip, they decided to check out activities in the Castle Rock, CO area. Well, when Rebecca searched for Castle Rock, the beautiful outdoor garden wedding venue popped up. She couldn’t help but to click on it and instantly fell in love with the venue! Rebecca didn’t mention the discovery though until after Ryan proposed! Since the couple wanted a rustic wedding theme with minimal decor, they decided the floral and landscaping of The Gardens of Castle Rock was the perfect fit. Plus, the venue was halfway between their two families. One of my favorite details was that the couple included a tablecloth and goblets on the head table that has been a part of Ryan’s family since the 1800’s! This was the 15th family wedding that the items have been used in! How neat is that!? But let’s back up a bit! Rebecca and Ryan met while attending school at the University of Iowa. They met one evening in downtown Iowa City and the rest is history! When they started talking about engagement and weddings, Rebecca made it clear she wanted a surprise engagement. Ryan accepted the challenge! He had planned a fancy dinner at a local winery to celebrate Rebecca completing her Master’s degree. Before they went to dinner, Ryan handed Rebecca a deck of cards. He had gotten them...

McKenzie even put on a gorgeous winter bridal cape with a fur hood and white winter boots. Totally completed the winter bride look! For their winter decor, there was no shortage of greenery, lanterns, and candles! Their church ceremony even included Christmas trees as their backdrop!

My cousin got married! Congratulations Kirsten and Jason! Their outdoor ceremony was at The  Town Green followed by an indoor reception at The Crown Room in Maple Grove, MN. It’s been a long time coming for these two to tie the knot! On their tenth anniversary, they had dinner at 6 Smith in Wayzata, overlooking the lake. Kirsten actually knew about the plan beforehand, because, as she puts it, “Can it really be a surprise after 10 years?” Their server made sure everything was perfect for them. When Jason popped the question, Kirsten said yes! For their wedding, they wanted a lot of vibrant colors and just an overall high energy. Kirsten and her mom had fun planning the wedding together. They searched for goodies from thrift stores, junk shops, and antique shops for the DIY wedding decor. They collected these amazing gold animal figurines for the centerpieces! One of the favorites was the Prince Charming frog. They also included some small nods to their foster cats. Kirsten had a head band with cat ears and they had a cat cake topper. Their details were pretty purrfect! Their bright linens from We’ve Got It Covered and colorful floral arrangements designed by La Petite Fleur completed Kirsten’s vision from the reception. During the month of their wedding, Kirsten and Jason bought a house together- more room for more cats! This day was nothing short of amazing!
