Loring Social | Wedding

Elana and Jeff travelled all the way from New York for their Minneapolis wedding!  We loved getting to know them from a distance and learned that they met in Ann Arbor, Michigan, love to travel, and one of their favorite spots to hang out is at East Hampton Beach!  Sounds like we need to add another beach to our Bucket List!

Elana and Jeff’s wedding day began at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis.  Working with Kelly Bollis of MAVEN was incredible – every detail was perfectly coordinated!  The ladies began the day with Beauty Lounge for hair and makeup.  Elana’s stunning gown from NYC Designer Loft was designed by Pronovias and was absolutely breathtaking.  After joining the men, Jeff and I headed down to Loring Social for the first look and bride and groom photos.  We love the way the detail of Elana’s bouquet by MAVEN Florals tied in with her dress perfectly.  The wedding party joined us and the bridesmaid dresses were absolutely incredible!  We loved the variety of color and design! 

Following family portraits, the afternoon began with a Ketubah signing followed by a romantic candlelit ceremony.   The reception began with dinner, speeches and dancing with the Bluewater Kings Band.  The evening was absolutely perfect and we are beyond excited for Elana and Jeff as they embark on their adventure through Portugal, specifically the Algarve Coast, and the Azores Islands.  We received this message from them as they were leaving: “Shane – hi! we landed in Lisbon for the honeymoon! We wanted to say a quick thank you to you and Anna for the incredibly thoughtful gift and your incredible work all day through our wedding. We can’t wait to see the photos!”  We love the anticipation of delivering photos to our couples and the gift that it is to us to be able to serve them for their wedding day!
