MN monday: a scandinavian celebration.

we love cara & gabe, and we’ve never even met them. this couple is one that you feel like you could call a friend. a sweet mix of gorgeous and fun, that brides smile is undeniably contagious! we fell in love with their scandinavian themed wedding captured by ingman photography, i mean, how original. the personal touches from the cake to the table numbers to the adorable flags make this wedding to die for. we are also suckers for a great seersucker suit! 

enjoy this fun, adorable, and captivating wedding! 

love,  j&b

Gabe and I agreed early on that we wanted our wedding to convey a sense of intimacy, simplicity, and Norwegian/Lutheran heritage. It was so much fun to imagine and plan a day that was completely and wholly us…no silk taffeta, dry chicken, or drama. Instead, we wore cotton, ate burgers, and celebrated our love in the midst of an incredible community of family and friends!
Managing many of the details ourselves gave us the opportunity to involve people we love and made everything they touched so much more meaningful. When I see pictures from the wedding, my mind is flooded with all kinds of wonderful and funny memories from those DIY projects! Anne did such a great job capturing the essence of that day which for us was pure joy!

@ Colleen/Inspired to Share….those aren’t danishes (this isn’t a Dutch wedding afterall) but a wonderfully delicious Kransekake, or “Ring Cake,” which is the signature wedding cake of Norway. It’s yummy almondy goodness and I’m so jealous that this bride and groom had one. I would love to make one for any bride interested!!!! And, I’m in love with this whole wedding. Love my Norwegian heritage!
