They primped and prepped at   Duluth's stately     Cotton Mansion . The obvious choice for makeup artistry?  Derick Cich . Duh ;) Side note: would you get a load of the veil? Whoa!

The actual wedding was held at  Clyde Iron Works , a former manufacturing plant turned warm industrial venue and restaurant in Duluth's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Each bridesmaid carried a simple, elegant bouquet of gypsophila. Fun fact: Alexis made each of the bridesmaid's dresses by hand. How cool is that?!?

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.
