Who said that minimalist wedding did not rhyme with romance? The proof is with the lovely day of Katharine and Caleb, who celebrated their wedding in a beautiful industrial hangar in Minnesota. A simple and elegant wedding dress, superb bridesmaids dressed with terracota jumpsuits, we absolutely love everything in this wedding, whose most beautiful moments were captured by the American photographer Matt Lien.
Katharine tells us more about that day : “Caleb actually came over to my apartment and picked me up on the morning of our wedding and the two of us went to a secluded coffee shop. We wanted to begin the crazy day just being content in each others presence. While we were there we exchanged gifts – Caleb gave me a gold bracelet and dainty gold earrings, I gave him a cognac leather Fossil wallet. And of course, both being words people, we exchanged letters.”
“For our wedding party, the girls wore burnt orange jumpsuits and cream colored mule slides. The boys wore khaki pants, untucked white button downs with off white bowties, and off white converse sneakers. Our whole wedding day fashion look was definitely true to our typical style.
We both wanted to just feel like ourselves on our wedding day and not overly done up. My wedding day look was minimalistic, chic and timeless. I’m not a big girlie girl, so I knew from the get-go that I wanted a really simple dress. To go along with the theme, my makeup was also very simple, sans a pop of burnt red on my lips! My dress was the most comfortable thing ever, I wish I could just wear it everyday.”
“The thing that ended up being the most memorable for us was, throughout the day we made a conscious choice to stop everything we were doing and take in everything happening around us. This allowed us to feel the gravity of the day and the gift that it all was to us. I get giddy just thinking about it!”
“The thing that was the most important to us was making sure each part of our wedding was true to who we are. And maintaining our quirky ideas while still hearing out the opinions of our loved ones!”
“Matt is literally a dream. He was laid back and easy going while simultaneously being on top of things and always in control of the situation. It was so clear that he is a pro and knows exactly what he is doing but it also felt like we were just bopping around town with one of our best friends, occasionally taking photos. We have nothing but the best things to say about Matt.”
