Bonus wedding! This is the term I keep telling my 2020 clients who have rescheduled their large celebration and yet also want to get married on their original wedding date. Well, Kimberly and Nick did just that and scored an awesome bonus Summit Manor Mini Wedding! (Thinking of doing the same?)
With all the uncertainty of finding a new venue, how many guests could come, the possibility of thunderstorms, and this modern-day plague, this couple pulled off a freaking fabulous wedding day!
With few guests able to attend, they kept it simple with parents, siblings, and few friends at the Summit manor venue in St Paul. The mansion-style venue with beautiful landscape and gorgeous mature trees set the perfect scene for the quaint ceremony among the guests and live-stream audience in attendance.
After the ceremony, the guests were able to sneak inside for champagne and treats. With bubbles in hand, Kimberly and Nick stood on the grand staircase in the Summit Manor as kind words were shared from their family in a few short and sweet toasts. Following this, the crew headed to dinner at Nonna Rosa’s where Nick had proposed and then stopped by WickedWort for their celebratory first beer as a married couple.
By then, the sun was fully shining on the Summer Solstice and as fate would have it, there was a live band playing on the patio of the brewery. So among the chaos, they were even able to have an impromptu first dance highlighting that the best kind of romance is always improvised.
While the day was anything but the one they had originally planned, it could not have been a better way to celebrate the best parts of a wedding day. Cheers to them both! We can’t wait for the second round next year!
