Van Dusen Mansion | Wedding

The Van Dusen Mansion is an absolutely incredible venue! Every inch of space is breathtaking, and Bonnie and her team are wonderful to work with!  Lauren and Corey’s beautiful wedding day began with the ladies as they finished up hair and makeup with LHNBEAUTY. We loved Lauren’s hairpiece – every single one of her details were perfect!  She looked stunning as her mom helped her into her elegant gown by Stella York from Raffine Bridal, and she took Corey’s breath away when he first saw her in her dress. We had such a great time together taking portraits throughout the grounds!  

The wedding party joined us, along with Lauren and Corey’s beautiful white pup. Everyone looked amazing with the men in their custom made suits and the ladies in their dresses from David’s Bridal with their gorgeous bouquets by Artemisia Studios.  We finished with family photos in the mansion before heading outdoors for the ceremony in the courtyard.  Lauren’s dad walked her down the aisle and told Corey, “This is my daughter, please take good care of her.” He then turned to Lauren and whispered “This is my new son, take good care of him.”  They all laughed, and the ceremony, filled with both laughter and tears, began.  Savstrom Studios did an amazing job of capturing all of the emotions on video!

Following the ceremony, The Hitching Company brought the newlyweds to Loring Park for a few portraits.  Afterward, we headed back to Van Dusen where Lauren changed into her stunning reception gown for cocktail hour.  Lauren and Corey have the most incredible, supportive friends and it was so much fun to watch everyone love on this sweet couple!  Following dinner and speeches, guests had a blast dancing the night away!  Lauren and Corey danced under the stars and string lights of the courtyard for the perfect ending to an absolutely breathtaking day!
