Minnesota Wedding at Lowertown Event Center

Nicole & Brent
Date: July 8, 2017
Location: Lowertown Event Center, Minnesota

Nicole and Brent’s summer wedding in the park ended up being the perfect day! They loved Mears Park in Saint Paul and thought it was so naturally beautiful and knew that is where they wanted to get married. After the ceremony, their reception was held at the nearby, Lowertown Event Center. “The feel of the space fit our style and personality. Not to mention the decor that is all included in the space- old exposed brick, vintage chandeliers and furniture- was all too beautiful, we really didn’t need to do much decor ourselves to create a great reception. We also liked how the event center gave us the layout of a traditional hotel conference room, separating dinner and dancing, but was still in one open space with so much more character and personality. Our guests didn’t have to hide behind a curtain for dinner or go up and down stairs to get to the dance floor. Very much a unique spot!”

“Our special touches for the day were the something “borrowed” and something “old.” We actually had two special things borrowed. First, I wore my mom’s gold and diamond bracelet she got from my father as an anniversary gift. Brent and I also used his parents champagne toasting flutes from their wedding day 33 years ago. My mother-in-law said, “they brought us 33 years of a blessed marriage with three beautiful children, we are more than happy to share them with you two with hopes of the same blessings.” My something old was Brent’s baptismal bonnet. My mother-in-law gave it to me at a wedding shower as his bonnet along with a poem. The poem started to say for his Bride on their wedding day, undo the seaming to create a hankie and use as my “something old.” I wrapped his bonnet around my flower bouquet to hold onto as I walked down the aisle to marry my Groom!”
