If you haven’t already, make sure you catch up on the eye candy that is Part 1, which was featured this morning.

From Melissa:
Stephany and Tim are pretty much the quintessential Minneapolis couple – urban, funky, vintage. They both love the rich history that the Mill City Museum offered and loved the thought of holding their celebration there.

Both Stephany and Tim wanted to have a bit of vintage flair to the wedding so Tim, found a great vintage jacket and pants. Stephany wore a Vera Wang gown. And, the groomsmen did away with suit coats, and wore white shirts with ties.

So, how’d the couple tackle their guest book? By using two vintage typewriters! Each guest wrote a special message using one of the typewriters. The departure from the traditional guestbook really encouraged the guests to sit and think about what they wanted to say to the couple.
