John Loves Melissa : Juliane James Place

Few things inspire me more than the chance to work with thoughtful, creative couples like these two! A year ago, before we’d even met to chat photography, Melissa had long been dreaming of this day, mad on the hunt for mismatching china and vintage clocks…Fast forward to this year, on the most perfect Saturday in June, when Melissa & John dazzled their guests by creating a wedding day filled their own imaginative, pretty pastel take on Alice in Wonderland. The whimsical forest and pond surrounding their amazing venue—Juliane James Place in Finlayson, MN created the perfect backdrop for their intimate occasion. Guests arrived at the property to enjoy lemonade, cocktails, and appetizers, then signed their best wishes for the couple on a large decorative clock, before traveling down a narrow walking trail lined with silver flamingos to the ceremony site, finding their seats among an eclectic mix of salvaged church pews, vintage sofas and stuffed chairs. After exchanging vows and hearing a heartfelt blessing from family members, the couple kicked off the party as husband & wife, inviting guests to find their tables by hunting down the vintage clock centerpiece whose time corresponded with their escort cards. Guests enjoyed an exquisite feast from New Scenic Cafe served on Melissa’s carefully collected mix-matched china and tea cups. Afterward, they enjoyed a fabulous dessert bar from Cocoa & Fig and a rad dance party. M&J, thanks so very much for inviting us to capture this dreamy day of yours!! It was such an honor to be a part of the magic!
