Your Own Backyard

Rent an outdoor living room. Build a pergola. Or go big on flowers. Any way you do it, your own backyard can be made to look entirely wedding-worthy.

What’s not in bloom during a Minnesota summer? Go big, or go monochrome, but let Pristine Floral help you make a statement either way with these amazing summer floral looks.




Cake



Summer cakes are simply awesome. Everything is in season, so any flavor and design is possible. Here are some of our absolute favorite cake looks, and the local bakers who can make your dessert table into one of your wedding’s sweetest moments.

Catering



Embrace the heat with warm weather cuisine! For summer weddings, we love the fresh, vibrant flavors of the tropics. How about Pimento Jamaican Kitchen? Nothing quite says “time to party” like a rum-based cocktail!

Manicure & Pedicure



It's your wedding day, and everyone is going to want to see your ring. Make sure your hands are photo-ready with services from Nailbar.


Photos


Nothing is simpler or higher impact than having a wedding photo with your unique wedding colors in the background. We love the pictures you and your guests can take in front of these bold, statement walls.



Summer is fleeting, so be sure to plan an “endless summer” wedding photo for you and your partner. We love the ways this couple captured every last bit of sunshine in their endless summer wedding portrait. Now that's an image to cherish forever.
