blush

  • When two people come together and decide to get married it is magical! When two colors come together for a wedding its breathtaking. The colors in this love story are Blush and Silver with a lotta lux in there. Held at Orchestra Hall this wedding is nothing short of sheer pefection. 

     Holding the ceremony on the upper level, which is open to the first level, gave guests a peek at what was coming next. We love how they created a special space for the ceremony with the sheer draping. The use of clear glass centerpieces and decor accessories throught the wedding really made the colors and textures of the liens pop.

  • Anyone who is married can tell you the planning process is not all roses and daisies. It’s making a thousand decisions and still having a dozen left to make. It’s skipping your lunch break so you can meet with the florist. It’s inviting your bridesmaid’s dress shopping and half can actually go. But what if you could continue planning but also have an awesome time with your sweetie? Like a date night but it totally counts as wedding planning. A place to gather real inspiration and see it in action! That is whatThe Big Fake Wedding is! An alternative to your generic wedding show of vendors booths all in a line. It’s a moment to remember why you are doing all this planning, so you can spend the rest of your life with the one person who gets you in every way.

    Après Party had the pleasure of being part of The Big Fake Wedding Minneapolis event in June that took place at JX Event Venue, in Stillwater, MN. All great parties have a theme and the theme for this party was “The Golden Age”. Over a dozen vendors took that theme, interpreted it in their own way, and shared their visions on guest tables. Just like any wedding the evening began with the very real and very emotional vow renewal ceremony.
