Elegant Wedding in Family’s Greenhouse | Lydia and Logan

Wedding in a greenhouse

This was the first time I shot a wedding in a greenhouse, and it made all of my floral dreams come true! Lydia and Logan tied the knot on September 4, 2021 at Lydia’s family’s floral shop. They made an elegant affair out of space that had never been used as a wedding venue before! This day was so creative and unique, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!

Logan and Lydia grew up in the same hometown of Rochester, Minnesota. They met in high school, and have been each other’s best friends ever since. After Logan proposed, the couple immediately began researching and touring wedding venues! They considered all kinds of options: an elopement in Scottsdale, AZ to a family celebration in downtown Denver. However, nothing felt quite right until Lydia’s sister had the idea to host the ceremony and reception in the greenhouse of the family’s business, Flowers by Jerry.

Creating a Wedding in a Greenhouse

It was a wild idea. However, Lydia said the family’s shop always felt like home. After weeks of discussing all that would need to be done in order to successfully host an elegant event in the retail space, Logan and Lydia officially committed to hosting their wedding at their family’s third generation flower shop.

Transforming a working greenhouse into a wedding venue was no easy feat. The week of the wedding, their families removed display shelves, plants, and gift products from the shop to make room for the ceremony chairs, dining tables, cocktail lounge furniture and pipe and drape that would cloak over every greenhouse wall! The flower cooler turned into a beverage fridge. They even transformed the parking lot out front into a chic patio with a fire pit, couches, and yard games. Logan and Lydia hung their own cafe lights in the building and built easels to display their parents’ and grandparents’ wedding photos like an art gallery exhibit. It was a complete transformation!

Floral Dreams Come True!

Naturally, a florist’s wedding day in a flower shop had to have some amazing floral features. Both Logan and Lydia wanted the floral designs to demonstrate the change of seasons from Summer to Fall since they got married on September 4. The goal was to make it feel like a glamorous garden exploding with flowers and foliage. I would say they were successful! They sourced Lydia’s favorite blooms – a mix of garden roses, sweet peas and locally-grown Minnesota foliage – that could capture both the bright warmth of summer and the beginning of the autumnal color change. It was so amazing to see Lydia and her sister’s hard work come to life on the big day!

Here are some highlights from Logan and Lydia’s day. If this doesn’t want to make you host your own wedding in a greenhouse, I don’t know what will!

can i tell you a secret?


Through college, my early PR career in San Diego, then moving back home to Minnesota to start a family, I’ve always craved a way to blend creativity and entrepreneurship. But it wasn’t until I started taking photos of my own son that something clicked. I had that feeling that can’t be denied. 

Almost a decade later, I’ve continued to build my skills through mentorships with some of the best in the business, education and a true love for this calling of mine. Today, I work with both couples and families to create images that capture emotion, detail and movement to preserve a single moment in time.

Photography means you can.
