I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham

Sunday mornings are pretty much the green eggs and ham of the wedding world. Despite the significant savings we offer for Sunday ceremonies or receptions, most brides do not like them. There are certain inconveniences associated with Sunday weddings. The most frequent reason I hear is that a Sunday event makes traveling more difficult for out of town guests. However, Sunday events allow for so much more creativity! A caterer can do amazing things with a fraction of the budget for a dinner, and breakfast foods are often better suited to buffet service. I wish more people would try them, try them! The morning light reflecting on the St. Croix River, and the pinkish sky is reason enough to consider a Sunday wedding at the Library. The library is closed on Sundays, so your guests are given exclusive use of our parking ramp and event wing. We also allow the bride and groom to be photographed inside the library; something that is taboo on a Saturday.

Joe and Heather were married late morning on a beautiful, sunny September Sunday. The bride walked down the aisle sans bridal party or escort to Rod Stewart's Have I Told You Lately. The lyrics were amazing for the moment!

For the morning sun in all it's glory

Greets the day with hope and comfort too

You fill my life with laughter
And somehow you make it better

Ease my troubles that's what you do

After the ceremony, guests transitioned to the reception, already set-up and ready to begin. The table centerpieces were filled with coffee beans (a brilliant filler for the glass vases; and it had a wonderful aroma too). For the guests who needed a little help waking up there was also a coffee bar with a choice of flavored syrups, whipped cream for topping, and assorted shaved chocolates for garnish. For the guests who needed a little somethin' else there was a bloody mary bar where tomato juice mixes and vegetable garnishes could be mixed and matched to individual tastes.

I love the bashful bend in this tiny ankle!
