Hey friends! I’m a bit behind the curve today, but I wanted to share this with you before the day goes by. Remember back in February when I went to Ely with my pal, Emily Steffen? I briefly mentioned that we were up to something special, but didn’t divulge too many details. Today our “Northwoods Romance” styled shoot is featured on Wedding Chicks, and that means I get to share it here with you as well. And I’m so excited! It’s been hard to keep this one under our hats, but hopefully you’ll think it was worth the wait.

For this shoot, Emily and I traveled to the far-northern reaches of Minnesota, to a cabin in the woods with no electricity or running water. This may sound primitive, but to us, it was inspiring and beautiful. The majority of the props we used were items that were already at the cabin, which made our job easy, and made the entire shoot feels seamless and cohesive. The gorgeous flowers were done by Danielle of Studio Fleuerette. Danielle is my very, very favorite florist, and if I could do my wedding all over again, she would be my girl. Jules of Knit-n-Jules provided the beautiful knits for our bride, and Emily knit a charming bow-tie for our groom! My mom did the lettering on our chalkboard menu and on all the birch bark “paper” details.

Tomorrow, I will show show you how to make your own birch bark tea bag tags (pictured below). In the meantime, check out more images below, on Wedding Chicks and on Emily’s blog!

    oh wow, this is amazingly beautiful. i can’t even believe all of the details you two pour into these shoots. you’re definitely two of the most talented girls on the planet. sometimes i think northwoodsy decor can feel a little contrived and outdated, but you’ve made it so chic and simple. love this a ton.
