I knew this wedding was going to be a lot of fun and extra special when Beth started telling me about their plans for a unity ceremony that involved all of their guests! Beth and Josh’s wedding at the beautiful Charleston Event Center in White Bear Lake was so full of sweet and personal touches. From the unity ceremony to the beautiful black hills gold jewelry that was Beth’s mother’s, to the extra fun Lego figurines in the guys’ boutonnieres, they thought of so many special ways to personalize their day!
The forecast had been predicting terrible weather all week long, but when their day arrived we had gorgeous and very unexpected sunshine! Any Minnesotan will tell you just how rare those gorgeous days have been this month, and I’m convinced it was their own very wedding miracle. With the sunshine, the blossoming trees, and the endless laughter throughout the day, this day was a joy from beginning to end.
