A Fall Wedding Filled With Elegance and Style

Having met in college, Jen and Ben were friends, but never much more. Graduation rolled around and they went their separate ways, Jen moving to Texas, Ben staying in Minnesota. They were reconnected by fate (and friends) and after spending over a year in a long-distance relationship, Jen chose to leave her career in Texas to move back home for the man of her dreams. Their fall wedding was a dream come true and while it perfectly represented her theme of ‘simple elegance,’ it never lacked style or personality. From the vintage trolley ride to the stunning Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses, Jen and Ben couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day.

A fall wedding to ‘wow’ about!

Q. How did Ben pop the question?

A. Ben has always said that I am way too intuitive, so how he was able to propose without me knowing, I have no clue. We were meeting up at a bar with some of his friends and once there, he told me that the guys were running late and asked if I’d like to take a walk on the bridge. It was a beautiful night and the Minneapolis skyline was shinning, so me, with my head in the clouds, agreed. We were 10 feet onto the bridge when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. In a matter of one week I had moved back to Minnesota, got engaged, and landed a new job. It was perfect.

Q. Why did you choose Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses?

A. One of my bridesmaids had actually worn a Kennedy Blue dress in another wedding, and I fell in love with them when I saw the pictures. I was hoping for something timeless, that went with my theme of ‘simple elegance,’ and that flattered each girl. That is exactly what I got! Plus, each of my bridesmaids loved how they felt and looked in the dresses.

Q. What part of the wedding planning was the most difficult?

A. The most difficult part for me was choosing the flowers. I ended up choosing white, but at the last second I changed the bridesmaids’ bouquets to coral for a pop of color, and I am so happy I did!

Q. What advice would you give to other brides?

A. Don’t sweat the small stuff and if you can, hire a wedding coordinator to take over in the weeks leading up to the wedding. It was well worth the money and really allows you to focus on what is most important that day. It also ensures that ALL of your guests get to enjoy the entire day as well!
