There are few things I love more than an intimate fall wedding at one of the most BEAUTIFUL locations in the state. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska is 1,137-acre wonderland of trees, flowers, and rolling rolls.
For Zach and Caroline, this natural landscape was the perfect backdrop for their fall wedding. As they joined their two families together, they brought together only their very closest family and friends for a very emotional ceremony under the Weeping Trees. Their ceremony included participation from several family members who helped read meaningful poems and prose, and the bride's sister read their vows to one another as the bride and groom clutched hands together. Not a dry eye in sight!
The couples' children had assisted in creating many DIY touches for the day, including the lanterns, dried leaves, and more. After the ceremony, the celebration continued at the Bird House Inn in downtown Excelsior, MN. Surrounded by their family and friends, they dined on Famous Dave's catering and scrumptious apple cider donuts from Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard.
