The Minnesota Bride Magazine 2012 Awards

Tami, Allison and myself – enjoying a sweet treat from Cocoa & Fig!

Nothing could be more exciting to me than getting all of the finest Minnesota Wedding businesses together in one room – and if Minnesota Bride Magazine is hosting it, it’s sure to be one major party! Hosting the event this year was the brand new addition to the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. We walked in to be surrounded by beautiful flower displays by our new friends at Wisteria Design Studio, a gorgeous dessert display from one of my most adored bakeries Cocoa & Fig, a delightful spread of fine chocolates from Sweets Bakeshop and lots of wonderful generous samples from Fabulous Catering and a few other top catering companies in the Twin Cities, like Create Catering, Chowgirls and more! As we headed to the banquet room to see who won the ‘Best Of’ awards in each category, I was happy to cheer on our friends at Graddy Photography for winning Best Photography for their 2nd year in a row and the Basilica of St. Mary for winning Best Ceremony location (I might be partial since that is where I got married). Also cheering on D’Amico & Sons as I’m a big fan of their wonderful food. So yes, the food was great, the atmosphere was swanky and the weather was wonderful, but my favorite part had to be meeting some really passionate business owners as we all support each other. What a cool industry to be a part of. All the nominees were cheered for as well as all of the winners. I can’t wait to attend this party each year and hopefully someday, Confectionery Cake Shop will be up there in lights!
