“A normal timeline would have had our wedding in 2017,” Taylor said, but with 17 weddings that year, they decided to hold off until February of 2018. Despite their large guest count, Taylor and Cody wanted a warm, intimate environment for their winter wedding at A’BULAE in lowertown St. Paul. They worked with Nicole, a Bellagala event planner, and Melissa from Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling to plan their welcoming wedding. Taylor and Cody envisioned an intimate environment with “an extreme amount of greenery, a dusting of white flowers” and tons of glowing candles. They wanted simple decor with less maintenance and teardown required, which was part of the appeal of the venue, with its raw beauty. At A’BULAE, the existing chandeliers, exposed wood beams and the expansive windows with views of snowy downtown St. Paul created the perfect base for warm, simple decor that truly reflected Taylor and Cody’s personalities.
