Who on Earth doesn’t love a good wedding?
The pageantry, the outfits, the music, the post-nuptial revelry, the sheer aura of happiness and bliss: there’s an embarrassment of loveliness about a union between two lovebirds, and sometimes it even feels like the journey to the big day is just as fulfilling as the destination.
I mean, it takes a LOT to craft the perfect wedding day! You gotta reserve a venue, you need to map out the reception, and find the perfect dress or suit to wear for the biggest day of your life.
With the spring season within our greedy little grasp, it’s time to celebrate love in all its beauty with Lavender‘s 2019 Spring Love & Marriage Issue! Within these pages include an encounter with Thraxis Threads fashion designer Tierney Houdek and her punk-goddess wedding attire; we meet wedding photographer Bryden Giving, who had the opportunity of a lifetime when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show; we learn about the latest marriage tips and trends courtesy of The Wedding Guys; and we explore the wedding venues possibilities of Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.
And, of course, we relive some of the gorgeous rainbow weddings from the Twin Cities area, complete with beautiful photography and, yes, wedding cake. Because who. Doesn’t. Love. Wedding Cake.
