Saying Goodbye to Summer Weddings

Chill is in the air. The leaves are changing colors. You sometimes (definitely) need a jacket. Fall is upon us in the Twin Cities and that means that Summer 2021 brides, you made it! Your event has passed and you are officially married! Congrats from all of us at Complete Weddings + Events Twin Cities, we appreciate so much being a part of your special day. As we say goodbye to summer weddings, we will share some of the best things about the season past.

Capturing Wedding Details Through Photography

When planning for a wedding our focus is oftentimes on the big picture. Top-of-the-checklist items like venue and décor can have us thinking about our event on a grand scale. However, remembering to add in little details might end up being just as meaningful. Your Complete Weddings + Events – Twin Cities photographer will capture every part of your exciting day, from the largest statements to your smallest wedding details.

Beautifully Bohemian – A Complete Weddings + Events Twin Cities Wedding

Tom and Megan photographed by Heather Hanson for Complete Weddings + Events Twin Cities was just too special not to share. If you read our last blog Timeless Wedding Inspiration, you know that we featured the bohemian wedding trend. Real couple Tom and Megan embodied this inspiration perfect with macramé details and unique florals. The brides’ shoes were an incredible nod to the laid-back but vintage style.

Timeless Wedding Inspiration

One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is deciding on your inspiration. This is what decides what you’ll wear, how the venue will be decorated, and all the little details that will make your day special. Having a solid inspiration makes it easier for you to narrow down some of the bigger decisions of your wedding day. To make deciding on a wedding theme easier for you, we have come up with four timeless wedding themes to draw inspiration from.
