Bonnie & Jim



December 12, 2009     Weddings

Where can I possibly begin with this wedding?!?

The details? Absolutely stunning.
The bride and groom? Two of the most genuine, kind and loving people you would ever meet.
The reception? Wow.
The “unique” factor? Heartwarming…I will get to that in just a moment.

It was really nice working with a wedding coordinator throughout this wedding. I had the pleasure of working with one of the industry’s best: The Wedding Guys. There are so many details that go in to a wedding and having professionals such as Bruce Vassar and Matthew Trettel running the show resulted in an amazingly beautiful and well run celebration day.

I mentioned a “unique factor”: What made this wedding really unique was Bonnie and Jim had adopted a baby girl just weeks prior. It was so touching for her to be a part of the wedding day. The wedding ceremony was held at Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield, MN and upon conclusion of the ceremony, it immediately transitioned into Baby Samantha's baptism! This was a first for me at a wedding and it was perfect and incredibly touching. Baby Samantha, all 10 weeks of her, was a trooper for photographs throughout the day. :)

I want to also call out what an amazing job the staff did at Hotel Sofitel. Everyone there was extremely polite, professional and demonstrated a passion for service. For example, I have never been asked if I needed a bottle of water by the staff upon entering a reception location...yet another first (and so greatly appreciated)!

Finally, and most importantly, I want to thank Jim and Bonnie for inviting me along on your special day. Your two of the most genuine people I have ever met and capturing your love and respect for one another was incredible. You are truly blessed with great friends, love and of course a beautiful baby girl! Thank you again!


Bonnie's dress was just perfect...



...and so was Samantha's baptismal gown

The happy family!





Summer Harsh did an extraordinary job on the floral arrangements! (She did the flowers for my wedding as well and I can't say enough good things about her!)







Could this flower girl be any cuter!? :)

Each element of the meal was a work of art!
