We completely adored the sweet simplicity & elegance of Charley & Anna’s wedding this summer! During their dating days, they spent so much time just hanging out at the lakes in South Minneapolis, so an outdoor ceremony in the Peace Garden at Lake Harriet was the perfect setting for them to exchange their vows. Afterward, they kicked off a beautiful party in the Chalet at Theodore Wirth Park. Every bit of the day was so personal and meaningful–their dear, talented friends & family contributed in every way imaginable to play music, officiate, and make all of the reception decorations. Even Anna’s dog Benny rose to the occasion and posed for some photos as the official wedding doggy.
Side note: Admittedly, I’m not normally a dog-fanatic, but I was exceptionally smitten with Gentle Ben and would not have minded doing a little dog-sitting while Anna & Charley escaped on their ah-mazing honeymoon to the Greek Isles.
