Real Wedding Stories in Minneapolis
Real wedding stories are such a treat to read, and a recent trend that we are happy to see come to light in this real wedding submission is the winter wedding. In years past, summer weddings, and occasionally fall weddings, were to be the goal of most couples looking to tie the knot. Winter weddings have become popular, especially winter weddings in Minneapolis, for the unique and romantic touches that can be built into a happy couples’ wedding day.
Especially in Minneapolis, winter weddings can feel like a true winter wonderland, complete with snow, icicles and even frosted glass and holiday lights. These things are never seen in the traditional summer wedding and with Minneapolis being one of the northern-most cities, it is the perfect setting for a winter wedding.
The rings, the theme…
Samantha and Justin planned their special day around the winter wedding theme. Trends often seen in winter weddings include festive colors that are appropriate for the holiday season like deep reds and pretty jewel tones like forest green and sapphire blue. Samantha’s dress featured some intricate lacework that reminded us of icicles or glistening snow drifts. A glam updo, a season-appropriate lip color and cozy wraps for the bridesmaids complete the winter wedding theme. Among all the details Samantha and Justin shine in their wedding photos complete with an engagement ring and wedding bands from Gittelson Jewelers.
A real Minneapolis couple
Getting to know this couple during the making of Samantha’s glistening diamond engagement ring was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Justin picked out the style of the ring all on his own and utilized our help to pick out the perfect brilliant round center diamond. The style of ring was a complete surprise for Samantha but she absolutely loved it! When choosing wedding bands, she opted for her match band as the perfect compliment to her engagement ring. They wanted to make sure that their wedding bands were cohesive as a set, so Justin and Samantha opted for a white gold wedding band with satin and shiny finish that complimented Justin’s style as well as Samantha’s engagement ring and wedding band. These are the moments that make these real wedding stories so much fun!
It’s all about the wedding planning
When it comes to wedding planning, there are so many details and options to consider today. Custom weddings are just as much a reality today as are custom wedding bands. These items and the couples’ special day can be custom designed for them from the ground up! Finding what rings, and what style of wedding, is right for you and your partner is part of the fun of the engagement and wedding day. Dream big and custom design jewelry and a wedding day that is special for you and your partner, this is the best way to capture the special moment as individuals choosing to spend the rest of their lives together.
