Esker Grove Wedding (at the Walker)

Kari and Andrew’s Esker Grove wedding pairs food with celebration.

As a wedding space, the Walker echos the aesthetics of the modern art it contains – clean lines and enough space to enjoy them. This makes it a stunning space for celebrations – modern and ready to be filled with the colorful, messy exuberance of a wedding. 

After their recent renovation, the Esker Grove restaurant on the ground floor has added a new dimension – it creates a center point around which other things can glide. 

And so, for Kari and Andew’s wedding, their reception at Esker Grove stood as the space of gathering and community – a multi course chef dinner overlooking the Sculpture Garden. 

Documenting Kari and Andrew’s Esker Grove wedding was absolutely a joy – their affection for each other is obvious, but the community they have around them of friends and family is equally durable and beautiful.
