Today’s charming Minneapolis wedding comes to us from Jeff Loves Jessica, who I hope we’ll be seeing lots more of soon! Nora and Reed’s wedding is a perfect blend of bright, modern style and nostalgic details…

Despite the drizzly weather, Nora and Reed took portraits at one of their favorite hangouts, Lake Calhoun.

Reed’s favorite moment of the day? “Skipping down the aisle to I’ve Just Seen a Face with my new wife.”

Nora and Reed chose an utterly unique wedding venue: a boxing gymnasium! Says Reed, “Nora and I wanted an opportunity to create something unique. Other venues were nice, but Uppercut really gave us a chance to create something special. We both wanted a warehouse vibe, but weren’t finding the right mix of size and flexibility, at a reasonable cost, in other more traditional warehouse spaces.”

How awesome is this custom chalkboard sign? So perfect for the gymnasium setting!

The bride and groom planned to take a delayed honeymoon, so they asked guests to share their favorite travel spots to help them decide where to go (the map also doubled as a guest book!).

Reed kindly answered some questions for us about the day!

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  Looking back on how everything came together, the greatest influence on our planning was the combination of our personalities. The wedding was unconventional, but traditional in many ways. Elements of practicality, creativity and frugality were common themes in our details. Above all my wife and I wanted to create a joyful time for everyone involved. It truly was an expression of the two of us.

Do you have any budget tips for other couples?  Take whatever you think it’s going to cost and double it. Okay, more seriously: spend money on the things that matter most. Food, booze, a good DJ – whatever it is pick the things you are willing to spend money on and do it, and don’t stress out about the rest. And write those things down! If your experience is anything like ours was, you don’t think you care about something, and then you find out you do care, and then you run out of time doing other things, so you don’t care again.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding? We followed a traditional flow of events for both the ceremony and reception. The only other tradition that was included in our service was that we chose to serve communion to our guests, which was very meaningful to both of us.

What was the best advice you received before your wedding?  Know who you are and have confidence in the ways that you want to express yourself to your community. There’s no dearth of feedback that you will receive along the way, so don’t let that energy take away from the little things that make you, you.

Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  From photographers Jeff Loves Jessica: Reed proposed to Nora through an amazing series of screen-printed post-card sized puzzle pieces, each depicting a different scene from Minnesota that was significant in their relationship.  He mailed each postcard to Nora, and once she had collected them all, she pieced them together to find an image of them standing as bride and groom. (I know, right!?!!) They then used these art-pieces as table numbers at their reception, which is just one example of their extraordinary creativity and thoughtfulness!

    I really love the idea of a wedding motif – not a theme, exactly, just something that runs throughout the event. For this summer inspiration board, cherries seemed like a sweet choice. In baskets as centerpieces, in baggies for favors, or even in a hat band or boutonniere, cherries are a simple and affordable motif. You can even incorporate them into your invitations. In the rest of its details, this board feels like vintage Americana at its best: a banjo, patriotic bunting, old-fashioned typeface. If I could sum it up in one line, I’d call it “summer in a small town.”
