DULUTH WEDDING COMPANY

Before the “I Do”

A wedding planner can calm the chaos of putting together your wedding KYNZE LUNDEEN, DULUTH WEDDING COMPANY

Wedding planning is always a blast, but when you get to do it for two people that have been a big part of your life, it’s even better. On July 8th, 2017, I was working at our offices preparing a big event Bayfront when I received a text message from my friend Bradon, who I call Brady, asking questions about wedding rings. At the time Brady was dating one of my best friends and roommates so naturally, I was SO EXCITED! Later that week Brady texted asking if he could propose to Hailey at our Duluth Wedding Show. I was shocked! How cool would that be? It also happened to be the 30th anniversary of the Wedding Show and I was looking for something unique to do. Hailey had always wanted to model in the Duluth Wedding Show so I thought, what more of a perfect opportunity is this? Working with Brady and our friend, Nick, we figured it would be best to have this happen on the Fashion Show stage. There was already a photographer there, Alan Johnson, and a videographer so it was absolutely perfect! I ended up asking Hailey if she could model and then “begged” Brady to do it too using the excuse that I was “short” on male models.

the fashion show, Sounds Unlimited, also was the DJ for her wedding. All of the vendors that were there for the fashion show were also there to help them have the perfect wedding! They were all there from the very beginning and we couldn’t have been more thankful for their work! With Hailey & Brady living in Oklahoma, Hailey being a flight attendant and Brady having a demanding job it was a challenge finalizing details but with the help of family, friends and our show vendors it worked out beautifully. Flip to Page 12 to see the magic!

HAPPILY EVER AFTER STARTS HERE

Long story short, Brady proposed to Hailey on the fashion show stage and the planning began. As a promoter of the Duluth Wedding Show and planner for the Duluth Wedding Company, I was already pretty well versed on the different options for the dream wedding Hailey & Brady have always wanted. There are so many options in Duluth but luckily for us, Hailey was also able to run around the wedding show before she modeled later on in the day, already knowing what she wanted when Brady was to ask her. The wedding ended up taking place in her childhood home in Pequayam Lakes area. Hailey loves glam so I teamed up with Wedding & Events Designs by Monica Halligan, one of our show decorators, and we did our magic to make Hailey’s vision a reality. The ladies from Ulta, that did Hailey’s hair for the fashion show, also did her hair for her wedding, it was so special! The DJ at

The Proposal

Six months in the making Bradon planned, with our friend Kynze Lundeen, the producer of the Duluth Wedding Show Fashion Show, to propose in front of 800+ at the January 13th Duluth Wedding Show. So much time and planning went in to making this moment perfect. The couple were models in the fashion show. Bradon walked Hailey partway down the runway, as she finished her walk to the end, he got down on one knee. When Hailey turned around she saw him with the ring and of course, said yes. Hailey had no idea and was very surprised!

Special Details VENUE: The couple held their wedding at Hailey’s mother’s property, a beautiful section of natural land in Little Cloquet Cove. The location meant they had to work literally from the ground up to create the perfect wedding.

SOUNDS UNLIMITED

More than Soundtrack to Your Wedding Story Today’s professional DJ’s provide more than music for your big day

In 1987, Cory Bonneville didn’t know he would one day own one of the most highly recommended professional DJ businesses in the region, he was just a nice nephew helping his Aunt Judy, a Phys Ed. teacher, with music for the Junior High School dances at Central Junior High. His skill behind the booth, ability to read a crowd, talent for entertaining led to the creation of

Sounds Unlimited

Entertainment, where he as assembled a team of professionals that can take your wedding by the linen covered chairs and lead your party to the best. time. EVER. “Wedding DJs have transformed into wedding coordinators over the years,” explained Cory, “ Instead of a four hour dance, it’s a full day with many pre-wedding consultation hours.” The professionals at Sounds Unlimited will help you with the planning and direction of the day’s events. They can provide sound and music from the ceremony through the reception, and they can take the worry off your hands so you can enjoy your big day.

focused on one thing - creating a wonderful, memorable time for you and your guests.

“This past weekend I had the pleasure of working with Sounds Unlimited for a wedding. Our DJ’s name was Mary and she went completely out of her way to make sure we had the best time. We had forgotten to send over a list of the wedding party and a song for our grand entrance and she was cool and collected and handled everything perfectly. She suggested songs for us and took care of everything beginning till the end. She was kind and incredibly professional. When it was time for the music she had people out on the dance floor ALL night-- something I have never seen before at a wedding. We had a blast and highly recommend Sounds Unlimited for any special event.” “We loved having Mike as our wedding DJ! He was so sweet, wanted to make sure he did things how we wanted, played the songs we wanted, and was so friendly and warm with our friends and family too! We also love the profile that Sounds Unlimited has you fill out ahead of time, very thorough!” “Sounds Unlimited did an amazing job at my wedding!

FEATURED WEDDING

The Paulsons

d n a tt a M y n a Tiff

The Proposal

Matt was selected for a free family photo session in a Facebook contest by ALY Photography, whose owner happens to be a good friend of Tiffany’s. Matt worked out the details and lucked out choosing a beautiful day for their session at Palisade Head, where they had a blast and got great photos. They ended the session with a faux picnic, Tiffany had turned her back to pick up a blanket, when she turned around Matt was on one knee with the ring.

Special Details

28

CEREMONY: The couple decided against having a wedding party, but had Tiffany’s daughter stand up for them. They wanted her to be included as much as possible. The ceremony included some family vows between the three of them, followed by special vows between Tiffany’s daughter and Matt, where she was presented with a ring trio to symbolize their new family. It was hands down a favorite memory of the day, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

June 1 mcgregor, mn


The wedding was held at Larson’s Barn in McGregor. “This venue is a hidden gem! BEAUTIFUL!”

Tiffany recommends MW Florals for an alternative to real flowers. She loved the idea of keeping her flowers forever. “Mikaela does an amazing job bringing your vision to life and communicating through the process.

Instead of cake, Tiffany’s sister-inlaw Jen made cupcakes and her best friend Amber made dessert jars.

The Who, When, Where... DRESS: Christian Lane Bridal GROOMS ATTIRE: Mainstream Fashions for Men HAIR & MAKEUP: Tatiana Alberg DJ/MUSIC: Duluth’s Finest - DJ Don Johnson Jr. PHOTOGRAPHER: ALY Photography FLORAL: MW Florals - Wood flower creations CATERING: Kurtz Catering

Advice

Enjoy the process and keep things simple. Your guests will not care how much you spent on your centerpieces or if you didn’t paint your mason jar perfectly. Let your family and friends help - which is especially important if you don’t have a wedding party. On your wedding day, take in every moment. Look around at all the amazing loved ones that traveled near and far to share in your happiness. And SMILE! Lots of photos are being taken!

YOUR Style

Trends in Wedding Decor

2020 Wedding decor brings lighting to new levels, turns the tables, and makes a statement, read on! LIGHTING Lighting goes to new levels with hanging displays, tube lighting and LED bars that allow couples to change up the feel of their venue from dinner to dancing.

Another new trend is a concentrated

light feature, like a unique string light display over the cake table. TURNING TABLES Tables are tables right? Not anymore. Wedding venues are finding couples requesting unique layouts for their reception - whether it be a mix of different style tables or long banquet tables arranged in a unique way - like an “X” for example, or all connected to create a design, snake or maze effect. What will they think of next?! MAKE A STATEMENT Instead of spreading your budget to fill the room, consider using a bigger amount to make a statement in specific spaces. You can also make a statement with metallic painted flowers or sassy signs. Another trend for 2020 is “new vintage” thinkdried flowers, wallpaper, ribbon and patterns like buffalo check and gingham.
