Guthrie Theater // Mary & Nick

Happy anniversary to Mary + Nick! To celebrate their two years of marriage we are reminiscing on their story!

Mary met Nick her first semester at Augsburg in speech class. On days when speeches were being presented, Mary couldn't help but notice Nick sitting down five minutes before class writing his speech, which somehow resulted in him doing better than everyone else. She was impressed and a month into the semester they began dating.

Years later, Nick was ready to propose, and he wanted to do it in a meaningful way that Mary could remember forever. He knew he would catch her by surprise no matter what his plan, since all of their friends and family expected Nick to propose on their upcoming trip to Vail, Colorado. After a few mishaps with his original plan, he made great dinner reservations and planned a perfect night out so that he could finally propose. As fate would have it, they couldn't find the key to the apartment and they had to cancel their dinner plans. Undeterred, Nick asked Mary to describe her "perfect meal." She suggested grabbing something from Sheesh in St. Paul, but he insisted she choose something fancier. Mary then jokingly said, "$200 worth of sushi." Nick immediately obliged and headed out to pick up all the sushi she could ever want from Saji-Ya in St. Paul. He returned with her dream meal and flowers and finally had the perfect moment to propose. 

They wed at the Guthrie Theater in the Pohlad Lobby, which transformed into their dance floor after dinner.  We projected lit chandelier gobos at the walls of the Dowling Studio and detailed the space with romantic blush and gold tones and lots of sparkle!
