Annie and Ryan’s Minnesota Wedding

by Kennedy Blue February 16, 2018

Annie and Ryan’s love story is fairytale-esque as they met in high school. After graduating, Ryan returned to visit from college and they began to date long-distance. Their relationship grew, they fell in love, and in September exchanged vows at the beautiful McNamara Alumni Center at the University of Minnesota. The slate blue, gold, and cream themed ceremony and reception was a perfect color combination to celebrate this beautiful couple.

More details from the couple's fairytale wedding


Annie looked stunning in her modern two piece Maggie Sottero Griffyn gown from The Wedding Shoppe. The top to this gown is a combination of chiffon and tulle, with a deep V-neckline, spaghetti straps and features gorgeous Swarovski crystals throughout the tulle. The floor sweeping skirt elegantly draped behind Annie as she made her way down the aisle.    

The gorgeous slate blue hue of Annie’s bridesmaids dresses from Kennedy Blue complemented her gown perfectly. The “Lana” style gowns were made a of crinkle chiffon fabric, and included a full length A-line skirt, thin spaghetti straps and complemented by a V-Neckline. The bridal party looked exquisite as they each held a bouquets of green foliage mixed with cream and slate blue accents.

Ryan and his groomsmen were handsomely dressed in suits from 1197 Grand at The Wedding Shoppe. The dapper gentleman were fit with three piece gunmetal grey suits with slate blue accented ties.  The slate blue and the grey complimented one another so nicely!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day for Annie and Ryan, we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Measurement Guide and Size Chart



Taking Your Measurements


Wearing the undergarments that you will wear with the dress, wrap the measuring tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust.


Stand up straight and bend to the side, the crease created is your natural waist. Wrap tape around the narrowest part of your natural waist.


Stand with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and seat.



Ordering the Right Size:

Compare your three measurements to the size chart above. We recommend ordering the largest of the three sizes. Our size chart is standard, meaning, it fits one general body type! With the wide variety of body types, it is rare to find an exact fit, therefore, alterations are recommended to achieve a perfect fit!

If you have any questions on what size to order one of our representatives would love to assist you in the process. Reach out to or chat online M-F 10am-4pm CST.
