Four generations of women in Heather’s family married in Duluth, Minnesota and even though the couple lived on the East Coast, they wanted to follow this tradition. “Ultimately, my parents were thrilled that we were able to celebrate together in a city that means so much to my family’s history,” Heather said. While planning the wedding, she had anticipated the weather to be closer to 70 or 80 degrees, but shockingly, it turned out to be balmy 45 degrees! Luckily, Heather stole her sister’s white fur bolero to keep warm. She also wore pearl-studded flats by Kate Spade, an heirloom Oleg Cassini wedding gown, and a J.Crew statement necklace. Each bridesmaid wore a black cocktail dress that best defined her personal style and personality while groomsmen wore black tuxedos and bow ties. The ceremony took place in front of 120 guests overlooking Lake Superior, and the reception was held in a tent filled with candles, moss, and succulents. The best part? The cake. “I will dream of this cake for the rest of my life,” she said. And the 17-piece band that played jazz and blues tunes throughout the night. See the full board here.
