Ivory North Co :: Styled Elopement with Kaley + Josiah
A few phenomenal Minnesota wedding vendors connected to celebrate this amazing new venue in the making — Ivory North Co. — and my dear friends April and Blake, who are building this white barn venue in Mora MN. (They are currently, as in NOW!, accepting weddings for late 2019 / and 2020!!!!)
What an amazing experience!! And hopefully you get a few ideas on how simple and incredibly intimate a wintery wedding could possibly be to be so special, and give you the most incredible photos!!! We are made to think that a wedding needs to take the whole kit and kaboodle, thrown in a kitchen sink, and cost an arm and a leg, but it actually doesn’t. Honestly, this set is making me want to elope, if I could do it all over again… ;) I kid you not! Skip the big wedding to-do, get a gorgeous dress, get dolled up with a makeup artist and hair stylist that are at the top of their craft, holding a beautiful bouquet and my lover’s hand… I’d be happy with that… If you’re reading this and all kinds of bells are going off for you, talk to me! Intimate weddings and elopements are my dream land!! Big sigh. Considering a vow renewal myself…
Anyway, feast your eyes. We had fun! And if you’re still looking for some “best in the biz” to take care of your wedding day! Check out the Vendor Crew below!! — with love, Ester
PS. I’m skipping some random photos of cat, but those did happen, and the vendors and the happy (again ;)) couple got ALL the behind the scenes. Cuz… you just had to be there for it to make sense haha!
