Real Weddings // Taryn + Charlie

After making the very cold move up north to Minneapolis from her hometown of Key West, Florida, Taryn Twyman met the love of her life, Charlie Broderson.

As guests entered into the ceremony room, they basked among a mixture of black + white chiavari chairs and a beautiful ceremony backdrop draped in orchids and a custom graphic aisle runner printed with Taryn’s favorite EE Cumming’s poem. Taryn was a vision in her stunning gown and cascading orchid bracelet bouquet as she floated down the stairway.


The reception space was decorated to the nines with custom, contemporary graphic black, white and grey linens with hints of chartreuse. Graphic patterns from the linens were carried throughout the bride’s cake and all of the printed materials.


The room was softened by beautifully neutral floral arrangements comprised of lush, spilling orchids. Taryn stayed true to her Key West roots by having a crab cake starter course, as well as seashells topping the groom’s cake.  To throw in a Minnesota specialty, guests also enjoyed a gourmet s’mores bar.


Guests spent the rest of the night laughing, dancing and posing with mustaches in the photo booth, sending good wishes their way as Taryn and Charlie embark on their new life together as Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Broderson.
