Judy and Patrick hosted a joyful day on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Minnesota Groom and Wisconsin Bride Tie the Knot In Sweet Ceremony
Patrick, a Minnesota native, and Natalie, who hails from Wisconsin, got engaged on a Christmas tree farm. On the morning of their wedding, Patrick gifted Natalie a diamond necklace, held in a hand-carved jewelry box made from the stump of the couple's own Christmas tree. This was the first in a long line of personal touches throughout the couple's wedding day. Local florist Jane Kelly Floral helped design a simple yet fresh aesthetic that complemented the stately grandeur of The Covenent at Murray Mansion. Patrick's classic tux and bow tie, along with Natalie's simple white gown, made for an old Hollywood look. Even the cake had a personal touch - Minnesota and Wisconsin laser cutouts perched on top, signaling the union and love between the bride and groom.
