The wedding of Leslie Wilcox to Dan Rosedahl took place on the first rainy day of the summer, but with a crew and couple as rambunctious as these two, no weather could dampen the spirits, and as Dan so wisely pointed out, “a wet knot is almost impossible to untie.”
Leslie got her hair done at Estetica off Selby, in a secret alcove under Nina’s Cafe. Dan started the day at Heimie’s Haberdashery, where the men had tuxes fitted and he got a custom suit, as well as a hair cut and food catered by Great Waters.
The wedding party met up at Westin Hotel in Minneapolis, where Leslie got dressed and then everyone shot some photos after Dan & Leslie’s first meeting.
The group made its way to Newport, Minn., for the ceremony, in a downpour. Newport Lutheran Church was an intimate, cozy setting that Laura got lost trying to find in a downpour (Scott was already in the party bus with the wedding party). She made it in plenty of time for the family portraits.
Due to the rain, we skipped on outdoor photos but did get some portraits of the wedding party back at the Town & Country Club (incredible! St. Paul’s oldest country club and Minnesota’s first golf course).
The cakes were by Buttercream.
It’s always so endearing when there are “longest married” dances, etc.; in Dan & Leslie’s case, one set of grandparents have been married 65 years. Congrats to them, and to you, Dan & Leslie!
