Sleek and stylish, this bride and groom echoed a modern day love affair. Cafe Lurcat is the beloved location. In the heart of Minneapolis' towering skylines and bustling highways, it's peacefully tucked away among fresh flower beds and manicured roads. Upon opening the doors, you step into an open and airy restaurant that streams in natural lighting and modern sophistication. Boldness arrives in the form of soft florals, yet simplicity filters in between the giant plants of greenery. A total dream, one you can relive through photos - never having to fully wake up.
We have our vendor dream team to thank for creating this dreamy magic - fairy dust and all. Hinted at in our BTS Cafe Lurcat sneak peek, the shoot ended in a picturesque alley decorated in vintage brick. One that can be described as a classic fairytale meets modern day style. And now we're excited to share the real deal with you! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom and peruse every talented wedding professional involved in bringing this shoot to life. They took a simple idea we had and launched it to complete fruition, curating a stunning masterpiece. Beauty is formed when people weave together their talents.
Let's take a look at how Innate Light captured this styled shoot:
All suited up! Bills Toggery fitted our model, Garret into a few different suits ranging from a sleek black coat to a deep navy jacket. Each one looking more handsome than the last.
You guys - how amazing is his man bun?! Along with the bride's hair, Pompadour also styled the groom's hair - giving him a modern twist on this classic look.
Speaking of hair, here are some up-do ideas for the I-do's.

Throughout the shoot, the bride changed into a few different bridal gowns provided by Annika Bridal Boutique. Each cut and design perfectly complemented the custom T. Lee rings, sparkling in every shot.
Dreaming up a bright yet soft style, we have Anna of Enticing Events to thank for drawing it out to life with her eye for style + incredible planning skills.
Goldenstroke Lettering played off of the gold + navy theme to hand draw each place card, menu, and invitation suite. PERFECTION.
Even the heat of the day couldn't ruin the bride's makeup, beautifully done by Color Me Cassie.
See? THAT RING! Sooooo good!!
What has red fur, a wet nose, and sweet kisses?! ...this adorable husky, King Rollo who totally stole the show.
