From Lisa: 

My Bride was Juliana and my groom was Chris. Both grew up in New Market, MN but didn’t meet until years later at a party. So when Juliana asked Chris where he was from and he said, “Oh it’s just a small town you probably have never heard of…New Market” She laughed and said, “Are you kidding I’m from New Market!” So that got the ball rolling and the rest is history. They were wed in New Market at the Church of St. Nikolaus. Right as they were leaving the church it started to snow and pretty soon it was huge white flakes that transformed the landscape into a winter wonderland.


The bridal party bar hopped their way to the reception hall in New Prague. The closest bar “LEO’s” looked like the overflow from the wedding. Anyone that lived in the town that wasn’t at the wedding was at this bar. They all knew them and wished the couple well. The next place Brewster’s was farther away but still enjoyed the wedding party and let them dance on all the tables and bar. The winter wonderland continued into the reception hall. Juliana is an Interior Decorator and thought of everything! The center pieces, twinkle lights, mason jars, a photobooth, and live band all added to the ambiance. When it came time to announce the bride and groom they had a “Grand Entrance” and danced all the way around the room complete with wooden horses. They ended the night with Sparklers and more dancing.
