Earthy Paikka Wedding in St. Paul, Minnesota

FILED IN: couples, weddings

Give me alllll the earthy, free-spirited, romantic wedding day vibes. This styled shoot we put on this past spring was a literal DREAM. We shot at one of my favorite local venues (Paikka in St. Paul) & had a list of incredibly talented vendors who brought things to life. 

Maven Events did all of the styling & floral (Hire them! Their team is insanely talented & are all simply wonderful humans).  Lady Vamp Artistry was on hair & makeup and killed it per usual. The dress & jewelry are from a & be Minneapolis (their dresses speak my language). Julie with Champagne Press designed all of the stationary and did such a beautiful job. She found the vintage stamps from Edelweiss Post. Honey + Milk set up their adorable stand & made homemade ice cream sandwiches for dessert (so fun & yummy!).

Anna & JT are a real-life couple who came & modeled for us. They’re really unattractive so it made my job super challenging (sarcasm if you didn’t catch on). 😉 My wonderful pal, Alexa w/ Alexa Kay Photo, came in and also did some shooting throughout the day. She’s such a talented photographer & one of my favorite humans— highly recommend checking her out! 

Anywaaay— I am so happy to finally put this post together & share the magic that was created with some of my favorite Minnesota wedding vendors. The goal was to inspire couples to do something a little different & create a wedding day vibe that is true to who they are as a couple. And to remind them that the day is always a win when you end it with ice cream (at least in my book!). 🙂
