Grace & Danny

“Elegance is good taste, plus a dash of daring.” - Carmel Snow, Harper’s Bazaar

We love a good quote - and nothing could better summarize the wedding day of Grace & Danny quite like this one from the Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar.

As you journey through the day, the elegance and good taste will speak for themselves… but the daring part?
That’s a neat little story!

When Grace contracted with her florist (Floral Artistry of Sanibel), she fully entrusted the design of her bouquet, her arch, and her reception to the creative minds on the FAS team! She told them to use their experience and expertise to craft a lush design she would fall in love with - and they NAILED it!

Living in the Tampa area, Grace & Danny selected Sanibel resort Casa Ybel to host their special day. Casa Ybel has some of the best beach front on the island, but what the couple fell in love with was the greenery around the property - we didn’t set foot on the beach the entire day!

Few things are more exciting for us than working with Steve Farst -
he provided the entertainment for our own wedding, and is so super talented.

Even better than that? The father of the bride’s speech -
thoughtful and loving, it featured a cameo by two of Grace’s favorite childhood toys!

Taryn & Daniel

Chicago, Illinois has a lot to offer - it’s a beautiful metropolitan city with lots of sights to see.
What it doesn’t have?
Palm trees. Beaches. South Seas Island Resort

It’s no mystery to us why Taryn & Daniel decided to leave Chicago and celebrate their love on the sandy shores of Captiva Island!

MSP Travels: Wilmington, DE

Juliana & Pete live in Wilmington, Delaware (the very first state!)

J&P don’t really consider themselves “wedding people”. They would have been perfectly happy with a courthouse elopement, sans the big white dress and wedding party. Fortunately for us, J&P also come from large Italian families, and those families wanted the chance to celebrate the couple in a grand way… so J&P sweetly agreed to a simple wedding…

Enter: 190 guests, 6 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, and a billion reasons to smile.

Choice in bridesmaids and groomsmen? Nailed it.
Wedding style, big white dress included? Nailed that, too.
Meaningful, religious ceremony? Boom.
Tons of fun taking photos for MSP? Yaaaas!

For a couple that never dreamed of their big wedding, they succeeded in celebrating a personal, authentic, and love-filled day!

Kehrin & Jason | Part 2

We've been so excited to share this with you - welcome to Kehrin & Jason's wedding day!

Let's get right to it!
We had an hour of travel ahead to get to the wedding venue, so the bride and groom got ready in the Marrakesh riad.

The couple kept their African elopement a secret from most of their family and friends.
Instead, they mailed out these adorable official announcements - perfectly timed to land in their loved ones' mail boxes precisely on the wedding day!

If there is one thing to know about Kehrin, it's that she has amazing style!
Her wedding dress was perfectly chosen from a line by Free People.

In the series above, the bride is putting on lip color from a source native to Morocco - organic Berber lipstick! Made with pomegranate powder, poppy leaves, and henna, the Berber tradition goes back centuries. She purchased some in the local market for her wedding day.

Kehrin was ready, and it was time to see her groom!

The wedding ceremony and celebration was to be about an hour outside of Marrakesh, so we hopped in to a van for the trip. We didn't know what to expect, but were greeted with breathtaking views of sand dunes as far as the eye could see!

We all wore a few different hats for the trip. Fallon helped with photo, honorary bridesmaids duties, and (wait for it...) as the wedding officiant! Here she is (in blue) helping the bride with her veil. In teal is Nicki from Fidelis Films - she and her husband Christian are incredibly talented filmmakers!
