Wedding Wednesday January 2016

We decided to start off the New Year by featuring an extra special couple. Emily (one of Mad Chicken's very own!) & Charlie's fall wedding can serve as inspiration to any bride and groom. The couple said "I do" at a private residence on Lester River and followed the vows with friends & family at the Red Herring Lounge. We loved working with a couple who had such great taste! Their floral accents enhanced the vintage feel of the day. The brewery inspired boutonniere featured hopps & wheat while the bouquets consisted of dahlias, amaranthus, gilded succulents, garden roses, a variety of fall foliage, & draping ribbon to top everything off! Emily's hair crown was perfectly accentuated by the stylings of the Language of Hair. They truly embraced all Duluth has to offer, from Zenith Bread Project & Martha's Daughter Catering's delicious offerings, groomsman gifts from Hemlocks Leatherworks, and even Duluth Coffee Company favors roasted by the groom himself! Every aspect of the couple's day was gorgeously captured by Mad Chicken Studio {check out their original blog post for more photos here!}

Featured Wedding: July 2015

Taylor and Jesse's October wedding at the Greysolon Ballroom was pure elegance.  Their attention to detail, from fabulous shoes to family photos to sparklers, made for a truly spectacular event. The simple elegance was only enhanced by the combination of pincushion protea, ranunculus, scabiosa pods, lime hydrangea, hypericum berry ferns, and sprengeri in her vibrant bouquet and floral accents. The Autumn wedding serves as the perfect inspiration for other North Shore couples.  The day's events were exquisitely captured by Bailey Aro Photography. Many more photos can be found here! Also check out that gorgeous cake by The Exchange!

When   Alyson Newquist of   The Bash Collective   and   Juliane James Place   contacted us about   doing a Duluth-themed shoot   and asked if we had a couple in mind, we unanimously exclaimed SARA LEE & ALLYSON!

This gorgeous & crazy-in-love pair made the most inspirational models. It was also the perfect way to celebrate the passage of the same-sex marriage amendment in Minnesota, which we are all about here at Saffron & Grey! BONUS - There was also a yurt, beer, & the couple’s stunningly beautiful canine, Monet.
