What was your color palette? Why did you choose those colors?

We chose burgundy & navy. We liked the color combination together.

What was the inspiration for the look and feel of your wedding?

We liked an elegant yet rustic look.

Why did you choose to host your wedding at Celebrations on the River?

We chose Celebrations to host our wedding because everything was very easy for us. The decorations, food, drinks, setup, and take down, everything was taken care of. We loved that the ceremony was on the river & the venue was very nice.

What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?

Celebrating our love with our closest family & friends.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again?

Not worry so much about the planning.

What was one thing you obsessed over, but realized it did not matter?

People not sending a RSVP that showed up & people that did RSVP that didn’t show up. Over all the number evened itself out.

What advice do you have for future couples planning their weddings?

Stay on top of the planning, meeting with the team at Celebrations when needed, making progress payments.

How did you manage your guest count?

We knew the count that we ideally wanted but also made a list of the people who had to be invited. We had to make a cut off so our guest count didn’t get too large as we wanted our wedding to be personal.

Who were your vendors? (DJ, Photographer, Flowers, Hair/Makeup, Dessert, etc.) How did you choose them?

DJ: DJ Brettly

Photographer: Alder & Root

Flowers: Maryann Floral

Hair: Taylor Anderson & Emma Berg

Makeup: Brooke Weber

Dessert: Celebrations & Caledonia Bakery

We chose our vendors because they were recommendations of Celebrations or they were local businesses where we currently live.
