Today’s lovely real wedding comes to us from Joanna Carina of Carina Photographics, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

Safiyyah + Rory were married on a mild April day at Aria, an event space located in the vintage Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis MN. Aria is known for its combination of modern art, glam and vintage warehouse aesthetic.

See more after the cut!





The color palette of their day was navy, blush, gold, gray and linen. Their ceremony space was adorned with vintage wine barrels, oversized silver vases teaming with gorgeous flowers, candlelight, crystal chandeliers and a sheer white backdrop.




The dining tables were set with numerous bud vases, candles and gorgeous florals. They even had a s’mores bar for dessert, and gifted mini s’mores kits to all their guests. Safiyyah + Rory’s wedding day was every bit as beautiful as they had hoped.





Congratulations to Safiyyah & Rory and thank you Joanna for sharing! For more information about Carina Photographics, please visit her WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to her website.
