Amanda & Abraham

Aug. 28, 2010 at a private residence in Grantsburg

Amanda Chaffin first saw her groom-to-be Abraham Reddy across the room at a concert at the 7th Street Entry, the smaller accompanying venue to Minneapolis' famed First Avenue. Though they stood next to each other throughout the concert, no numbers were exchanged. Abe then mustered up the courage via Facebook her to ask her to coffee, which began a romance that resulted in their three-day wedding extravaganza at Amanda’s family farm in Grantsburg. Considering Amanda's career in fashion—has her own fashion line called Dawson—it's only right that she made her own gorgeous wedding gown.
