Julia & Jared / The Gale Mansion / Minneapolis Wedding Photography
Another bride does it all! Julia made the preserves that they had as favors for all of her 200 guests. She grew the succulent plants that they used for their centerpieces. She knit all of the shawls for her bridesmaids and sewed all of the ties for the groomsmen! Wow! I never put that much effort into my own wedding! She did receive some help fortunately. Friends built their Chuppah and patch-worked the quilt to represent their new home together. More friends made their invitations and even more friends made their Ketubah (their wedding contract). Over all, a lot of homemade love went into this wedding! And lets not leave out the groom! Jared is so kind and his love and respect for Julia is so apparent. It is truly beautiful to be able to witness such love! I feel so lucky!
