Kirsten and David met through mutual friends the weekend of Lollapalooza at a nightclub in 2011 and wed two years later at Aria in downtown Minneapolis. The venue stood out with it’s original brick walls, crystal chandeliers, and whimsical art work. “I wanted to find a way to soften the space,” Kirsten said. “We used strips on fabric on tables and hanging from the wall behind the ceremony space. I loved how it looked next to the brick!” She walked down the aisle wearing a slimming organza wedding gown with lace floral appliques, accessorized with a blush satin sash, to meet her soon-to-husband wearing a custom suit, shirt, and vest. Believe it or not, but the bouquets were ordered from Sam’s Club and assembled by family and friends. Following the ceremony, the loft was turned into the reception space. “We collected beer and wine bottles (over 400) and spray painted them in my parents’ backyard for centerpieces,” she said. And in lieu of favors, the couple had pizza delivered from Pizza Luce at the end of the night. See the full board here.
