Dayne + Kori >> Stylish + Romantic Wedding at Paikka (Saint Paul, MN)

How many times did I hear guests gushing over the decor, those earrings, Kori's booty in that dress? Dunno, I lost count.
As for which percentage of guests were also rummaging around for tissues during Kori and Dayne's heartfelt vows? There's no way to tell. ("I will find you" was the line that got me.)
I doubt anyone kept track of how many flutes of champagne were clinked and consumed, or the amount of hugs exchanged throughout the event.
It's also unlikely that anyone recorded how many donuts were left at the end of the night (not many) or how many party goers were secretly trying to work out how to get a second round of quesadillas from the food truck. (Guilty.)
And while it would be an interesting stat, how many screams erupted on the dance floor when Steve spun The Middle, we are alas, stuck using memory and imagination.

What I can tell you though:
This ranks as one of the longest blogs I've ever compiled, so attached I am to every photo herein. This couple, this crew, this entire celebration are phenomenal examples of the love and light that occurs when you focus on the heart of it all, instead of getting caught up in quantities + details.
(Although no one's complaining about all the sweet and stylish accents as an added bonus. ;) )

Congrats, D + K!
