This wedding...WOW. What a photographer's dream.
Erin and Jared are a doctor and nurse at the Mayo Clinic, so it only seems proper that they get married at the beautiful Plummer House, the 1918 residence of Dr. and Mrs. Henry Plummer. This venue is one I would recommend to anyone who loves the historical look because it is downright gorgeous.
We all lucked out that weekend because Minnesota had been racked with thunderstorms, then bouts of immense heat and humidity. The Plummer House does not have air conditioning, so we were all crossing our fingers. The day was gorgeous, without a single drop of rain. The funny thing we found about the wedding was that it was simple, yet incredibly elegant at the same time.
Being huge wine lovers, the two had wine incorporated into the entire wedding. Fake grapes adorned the shelves and tables, the cake toppers were made of wine bottle corks, wine bottles that they had drank throughout their courtship served as centerpieces on every table, and they had a huge "V" made up from corks. During the ceremony, they placed wine and love letters into a box to be opened during their first anniversary.
Rather than have a typical dance party reception, the reception was accompanied by a string quartet, playing the standard classical tunes, as well as classic rock and familiar Disney music. There were points when we would look over and ask, "Is this "Be Our Guest"?" They served delicious hors d'oeuvres, including grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, mini beef wellingtons and more.
As much as I hate saying it, nearly every time we shoot a wedding, we say it is our new favorite. This takes the cake as being one of our top weddings. We could still be at that venue shooting portraits of them if they let us.
