K + J , a real Northstar Winter Wedding

As we say goodbye to 2011, it wouldn't be right without showing off Northstar's final wedding of the year, photographed by the very talented Ciprian Photography (thank you!). This DIY bride and her family created a one of a kind event. The reception was set with large manzanita branches dripping with crystals and goblet style candle holders that sparkled and glowed.

A whimsical part of dinner would be the English poppers, filled with a joke, a crown, and a toy.
Their cake toppers were real life versions of themselves and their pooches!
As a nod to the groom's regional management position at 7-11 they offered their guests real 7-11 doughnuts! The room smelled like sugar right when you walked in!
The ceremony ended with vintage noise makers. How fun! And the bride's sister created all of the artwork used for the programs as well as the table numbers and escort cards.
The bride looked stunning in a to die for crown at the ceremony that literally made her look like a princess!
After the ceremony she swapped out her crown for a very glam fascinator.
I loved this wedding and all of the special touches were my favorite parts! Congrats you two, Bxo

A sweet treat!

Why have just one when you can have an assortment of smaller wedding cakes? I love the simple beauty of this set by Flour Girl Wedding Cakes, photographed by the very talented Leah McCormick. Enjoy!

A REAL Northstar Proposal!

On Friday, December 2, 2011, one of our Ski patrollers, Steve, was in for a big surprise. Here is his story that he later shared with the bride: 

"While skiing down Northstar’s West Ridge ski run, I visualized a man on his knee apparently holding a lady’s left forearm.  She was crying loudly.  I was therefore certain that at least her left arm was injured and that the fellow with her was assisting her pending the arrival of a Ski Patroller.  Me.  So you can imagine how disappointed I was when, after rushing to your side to assist, you told me that everything was OK.  Then, the lady, still sobbing, yet sporting a huge smile, said to me, “He’s proposing to me right now!”.  Congratulations guys."

W-O-W! This story was a tear jerker. Congratulations Amber and Brookie, and let the planning begin!
