I call the Twin Cities home and can personally attest to the beauty of the Hamline Church in St. Paul. It perfectly embodies the classic, cathedral-style ceremony the bride was aiming for, and the floral-filled reception that followed was like icing on the cake. Thanks to Jeff Loves Jessica + Snowshoe Productions for bringing this affair to life on our pages.

From Jeff Loves Jessica... Cassie & Pete met 8 years ago while playing competitive soccer on the women's and men's teams, respectively, at Carleton College. Although Pete was one year ahead of Cassie and the two didn't begin dating right away, after a year of their paths crossing through soccer and their social sphere, the couple hit it off and the rest is history!

Their wedding day was the perfect bright sunny day with the sort of warm evening glow that only late summer can create. Cassie wanted an old, classic cathedral-like church for their ceremony and found Hamline Church in St. Paul to be a great fit. The ceremony featured a live string quartet and wreaths made with bay leaves to decorate the ends of pews. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the Sommerset Country Club in Mendota Heights, MN beneath a clear top tent.

Amazing floral blooms cascaded from the ceiling of the tent, hung with clear thread to create an ethereal and very romantic setting. Sprigs of greens and custom made menu cards were carefully folded into napkins at each place setting. After dinner, the couple cut a show-stopping 3-tiered cake created by Cocoa & Fig, and brought the party back inside the country club for dancing with a live band and a photo booth.
