3 Ten Event Venue Wedding | Gretchen & Cordell

Sep 29, 2021

Weddings

filed in:

Gretchen walked through the elegant reception tables of the 3 Ten Event Venue with her hands over her mouth. The ceremony space was prepared for its reveal. Approaching her altar installation, I heard Gretchen’s voice through tears: “It’s beautiful.” Beholding the intention and design, she walked nearer and then circled back to her mother for a hug.

I saw this same overwhelm of happy tears on Gretchen’s cheeks as walked down the aisle, taking in the moment. And again, as she read her vows to Cordell and listened to his. The simple and the profound seemed to weave together so many times on this day. The simple way she took his hand with a laugh and promised to laugh at his jokes. The deep intensity of lifelong promises to help each other through the misadventures of life. The smiles and laughs everyone shared as Cordell stated how he’d never forget the 5am call from Gretchen saying her car was stolen (and well…it was towed. I laughed too.) Witnessing this ceremony, I knew before hearing the toasts later that evening: that Gretchen and Cordell make people feel at ease because of who they are and how loyal they are as friends.

What truly struck me was the authentic surprise and joy in Gretchen’s voice as she walked through the milestones of her day– how being truly present opens our hearts to receive the gifts of who others are to us. I believe this beautiful way of receiving allowed everyone to experience in real time the type of tranquility that Gretchen and Cordell share. It also made everyone feel comfortable to be themselves – and to rock it on the dance floor! (I have to interject that by far the majority of everyone was up dancing!!)

From beginning to end, Gretchen and Cordell’s 3 Ten Event Venue wedding was filled with autumnal color, elegance, and laughter. This day brought together so many family and friends from across the country – from Washington, to Colorado, to Wisconsin! Gretchen and Cordell are the kind of people you want to do life with, have dinner with, and go on a long mountain hike with.

Gretchen & Cordell,

The urban elegance of the 3 Ten Event Venue couldn’t have found a better match than your wedding vision! Your personalities are as vibrant as your florals: down to earth, warm, and striking (I mean, PGA golf majors stand out, you know?). I’m sad I won’t get to see you often out and about in my state, but I’m so thankful the west coast gets to have you. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day, for the way that you value your friends and family, and for having your wedding in Minnesota!!

Joyfully,

Jennifer
