Amber and DQ had their navy and rose gold wedding at Hope Glen Farm in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. Amber and DQ met while working together at Best Buy. They had cubes right next to each other and often chatted. As they spent more time together at work, they realized how much they wanted to get to know each other more and spend even more time together. Eventually, these co-workers became a couple and it all led them to an unforgettable trip to Iceland in October of 2017. DQ had hidden a ring box in the bottom of his camera bag and carried it through three different countries, three airports, countless rides of public transportation, and multiple hotels. The couple went to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall during their adventure. DQ asked a stranger to take his and Amber’s photo by the waterfall, and asked for the stranger to keep taking photos. He then got down on one knee and asked the question he’s been wanting to ask the entire trip, “Will you marry me?” Of course, Amber answered with, “Yes!”
When planning their wedding, Amber and DQ knew they wanted a short engagement, to celebrate the day with their family and friends, and a rustic barn venue. They were surprised at all of the Twin Cities barn venues, and even more surprised that most of them were booked a year or two out. After touring Hope Glen Farm, the couple fell in love with the property, the feel of the venue, the amenities, and the tree house. Unfortunately, most of the 2018 weekend dates were already booked up. Since they didn’t want to wait a year or two to get married, Amber and DQ decided to have a Thursday wedding so that their date options opened up. When they saw that Thursday, October 25th was available at Hope Glen Farm, they knew it was a sign since the year anniversary of their engagement.
