Susie + Andy’s DIY Minnesota Backyard Wedding

Susie and Andy’s wedding was the Best Day Ever.  Literally, that was their theme.  This was a DIY wedding that left me in awe of Susie’s planning skills.  Little details woven into the day to made it 100% personal to the couple.  This included the necklace exchange during the ceremony, the Michelada bar, and Andy’s awesome gamer socks.   Their favorite food truck rolled in for dinner, and donuts were served for dessert.  The hand built dance floor was full of happy guests all night long.

It was a meaningful, beautiful day with their closes friends and family in attendance.  Susie’s brothers officiated the ceremony.   I am absolutely honored to be part of their best day.  Thank you to Susie and Andy’s families and friends, who surrounded them with love and worked together to help create their amazing wedding.

A vintage 1950’s cabin provided a private place for Susie to get ready. Getting ready for your wedding with a lake outside is a peaceful experience.
