Nicollet Island Pavilion Wedding
Darwin and Katie met through a dating app, but they only went out together because they had a mutual friend who works on political campaigns that encouraged them both to go on our first date in Northeast Minneapolis (that was on April 28, 2018).
They got engaged in Hawaii. Darwin wanted to pick a place with a sunset almost as beautiful as her red hair for the proposal. He had to pretend to hide the ring in a hat he was carrying and pretended to see an animal in a tide pool, then turned around with the ring when she came over.
Why did you choose Nicollet Island Pavilion for your wedding?
The natural beauty was the obvious answer. The Mississippi is super important to Katie, as she has always lived in a town where the Mississippi cuts through (Brainerd and Minneapolis). It is a nice reminder of how something that starts small and slow can turn into something significant and powerful. The venue itself is historic but modern inside – fitting the theme of timelessness.
