fab.weddings: Amber + Russ | Mounds View, MN

This post is packed with detail shots from Amber and Russ’ 1.24.09 wedding.  When Amber and I sat down we hit it off right away with our gabbing.  I was thrilled to be hired to coordinate their wedding.  They had a blue winter wedding with pops of orange in the flowers and silver, glittery goodness everywhere else.  Ambers friend, Jenny, owned all the decor you see in these pictures and decorates for fun (or at least she did a year ago.  I tried to tell her to start making money with that stuff!) and graciously offered her decor services as well as floral eye to give Amber the winter wonderland she wanted.   It was fa-reezing and I got to go with the photographers (Jessica of JM Photography and her second shooter Laura Ivanova).  We were all so numb but it was SO fun to be able to help everyone out.  Thanks so much everyone.  My first winter wedding will always be one I remember and love.

Thank you to Jessica of JM Photography for catching literally EVERY detail from the day.  It’s so awesome when photographers care about the hard work the couple put into selecting those very details.

Shots between the ceremony and reception were SO worth it.  If this doesn’t at least get you to consider a winter wedding, I don’t know what would!
