Brainerd Lakes Wedding of the Year!!


Yes, this is one lovely, happy couple and I’m so proud to say this is my handsome son Chayse and his lovely bride Elli.

You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and precious day.

chayse and elli saying I do

There love story begins with my daughter-in-love Madi. While she was dating my oldest son Ethan, she invited Elli over to our house for a bonfire.

I think Chayse was smitten the first time he laid eyes on her as is plain to see by how they look at each other.

True Love…. there is nothing more beautiful then that.


Ellie said, “I remember thinking the second time we went out that he really listened to what I had to say . He wasn’t like most guys because of that. He was asking questions about my schooling and my future plans and no other guy had really done that to me before.”

“I had never really dated seriously before, but I knew I wanted to date Chayse and that it would be different.”
Chayse said that Elli loved him for who he was and is…..and didn’t marry him to try and change him, but accepted him as is:)

He wanted to marry his best friend and spend the rest of his life with her.


The beautiful bouquets you see below are from the talented Sharayah from the bee’s knees floral design 

Elli chose the bee’s knee’s floral because she loves the wild flower look and Sharayah does such an amazing job. 🙂

I have to say….she was one beautiful bride…

She desired a very natural, down to earth look…and I think you can agree….this look was perfect……for her….

Love the look and style that they chose for the wedding… was so perfect for them!

Elli – “I would say my wedding was the epitome of my style. I have a very laid back look. I also really like anything vintage and there’s a slightly classy element about my style as well.”


Here I am pinning on Chayse’s boutonniere……such a special moment!
