How to Create the Ultimate Fairytale Wedding

Fairytales really can come true. At least they did for Yevgenia and Eugene during their winter-to-spring themed Russian/Jewish wedding on 3.4.18 at Aria, a historic wedding venue in Minneapolis. All the perfect details were there: glittering lights, snowy trees, springy flowers everywhere, a live band from Chicago, and a swing for the perfect photo opp for both the bride and groom and their guests.

The historical space at Aria is very open and industrial, with many unique elements, like exposed brick and crystal chandeliers. Led by David, one of our lead designers, over 12 people from Richfield Flowers and Events worked on setting up this grand event.

Our hand-constructed white, wintery trees lined the aisle—the branches were adorned with hanging crystals while the base of each tree was filled with beautiful spring flowers and faux snow. After the ceremony, the trees were transferred to guest table tops for the reception, along with a cluster of spring flowers bursting through the faux snow in assorted mercury vases.


The huppah exploded with trailing phalaenopsis orchids. Each one was personally hand-tied by one of our designers, Clara. What beautiful surroundings for their friends and family to watch them proclaim their love.


This swing is so romantic. Cymbidium orchids were hand-tied to the swing and petals were made to look like they are falling from the sky. Guests had fun posing together for the perfect photo op.


These hanging lights are handmade hoops ranging from 6′ to 10′ in diameter. They were custom created by David and his warehouse crew after the couple saw what we did for a client in South Dakota the year before. After we constructed the hoops, we wrapped lights around them and then trailed more lights; looks like something you might see in the night sky.


Spring has definitely sprung at this fairytale wedding!
