Shanna & Patrick chose the NP Event Space in Brainerd, MN as the backdrop of their rustic inspired wedding. Brainerd is small lake town a few hours north of the Twin Cities and is a place that has very special meaning to the couple who both grew up spending summers at cabins nestled among the tall pines along the many lakes in this area. They invited their closest 150 friends and family “Up North” to be a part of their wedding day.

Shanna & Patrick’s wedding was nothing short of breathtaking. Let’s start with the venue, NP Event Space. A vast piece of land with an eclectic mix of historic buildings; new, old abandoned and decaying, flowers, grass and blue skies. The property sits on an old railroad. The reception was held in the old Blacksmith Shop which dates back to the early 1800s.

The best parts of the wedding? The couple shared thoughtful vows before the ceremony and were married on the same day as Patrick’s parents.

This wedding was truly a dream come true!
