I know there is an affinity for the Scandinavian here in Minnesota – clean lines and a bright palate and the occasional motif of hand-painted foxes. I share a love of that aesthetic, a desire to connect with a Nordic heritage that distinguishes the upper Midwest from the mid south.
But if you are planning you Minneapolis wedding right before you move to Finland, as Riikka (a native Finn) and Chris did, then that minimal, natural elegance can also be found in our parks. You might also find that a Scandinavian approach to minimalism lends itself well to the small, intimate wedding Riikka and Chris wanted for Chris’s family to attend before their move.
A park shelter and the mid summer sun streaming through the oak trees overlooking the water – a touch of the clean countryside right outside of Minneapolis.
Thank you, Riikka and Chris, for letting me document your intimate and sun-drenched wedding.
And congratulations on many adventures to come!
