Real Weddings // Kelsey + Colby

With Spring right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to get you all out of the polar vortex "funk" and share one of our favorite, true summer weddings!

Having spent countless summers vacationing in Detroit Lakes at Kelsey’s family cabin, Kelsey and Colby decided that their favorite summer getaway spot would serve as the perfect destination for their Fourth of July weekend wedding. They wanted a casual yet chic country-inspired affair with a rocking party, and that’s exactly what we delivered!

Our team came up with a striking turquoise and red color palette that gave a nod to the Fourth of July without being too literal. Everything from the lush and beautiful floral to the small (yet dazzling) details were uniquely branded. Even the aquarium cake was branded to tell the story of Colby’s “frog” proposal. To ensure the party started from the time guests arrived, we suggested an East Coast style of service where guests dance before dinner service. The live band and DJ after-party kept the revelry going until sending off the newlyweds in the true American fashion – lining the pavilion with sparklers!
