Dustin & Nikki had a gorgeous day for their Woods Chapel wedding in Orono, MN this past weekend. The Woods Chapel provided the picture-perfect backdrop for the day, and a lush setting for their outdoor ceremony. The new Mr. & Mrs. spent the day surrounded by their family and friends, including their two fur babies Monster and Payton Rose who served as ring bearer and flower girl (are you kidding me with that dog suit and that gorg collar made of roses!? Obsessed.)
Nikki opted for a super unique off-white mermaid gown by Allure Bridals with subtle clear linear sequins and a full line of buttons down the back. She had some amazing sparkly heels as an option, but wore cowboy boots the whole day instead (atta girl!) Dustin and his groomsmen looked dapper in navy, white and blush and stood out from the bridesmaid’s blush gowns from the Wedding Shoppe perfectly. KMB Floral came through as always with a divinely massive blush bouquet for Nikki to hold throughout the day – I love Kari’s work and am always excited when my brides choose to work with her!
After a short and sweet ceremony, guests headed to the Hilton Bloomington/Minneapolis where they enjoyed a cocktail hour with the bride and groom, followed by a delicious meal and dancing!
I had the best time with Dustin, Nikki, their bridal party and their families throughout the whole day. Their “people” are so dedicated to supporting them and were so in tune with them and their needs throughout the day. It is so obvious how in love Nikki and Dustin are with each other and how committed they are to loving each other well for the rest of their lives! A love like theirs always makes the wedding day fly by so quickly because it’s pure joy!
Nikki & Dustin, a thousand thanks for having me on one of the biggest days of your lives!
