Minimalist Chic St. Paul Wedding at Paikka

March 26, 2018 | colleen

Katharine and Caleb’s vision for a modern and minimalist wedding came true at Paikka. The event space’s industrial vibes went hand-in-hand with the minimalist decor and Kindred Blooms florals that decorated the space. As if Katharine and Caleb’s ceremony and reception weren’t stylish enough on their own, Katharine rocked a modern wedding dress from The White Room and Caleb stayed true to his style by wearing deep khaki pants and a button down from ASOS. There are so many things to obsess over, but we are partial to the burnt orange jumpers from Movint that the bridesmaids are doing a favor by wearing – hello, heart eyes! Photographer Matt Lien captured the day and he did not disappoint – get ready for an abundance of joy spilling out from the photographs and one of the cutest reactions after a first kiss to date!

The Couple:

Katharine and Caleb

The Wedding:

Paikka, Saint Paul, Minnesota

Caleb actually came over to my apartment and picked me up on the morning of our wedding and the two of us went to a secluded coffee shop. We wanted to begin the crazy day just being content in each others presence. While we were there we exchanged gifts – Caleb gave me a gold bracelet and dainty gold earrings, I gave him a cognac leather Fossil wallet. And of course, both being words people, we exchanged letters.

The thing that ended up being the most memorable for us was, throughout the day we made a conscious choice to stop everything we were doing and take in everything happening around us. This allowed us to feel the gravity of the day and the gift that it all was to us. I get giddy just thinking about it!



For our wedding party, the girls wore burnt orange jumpsuits and cream colored mule slides. The boys wore khaki pants, untucked white button downs with off white bowties, and off white converse sneakers. 

Our whole wedding day fashion look was definitely true to our typical style. We both wanted to just feel like ourselves on our wedding day and not overly done up. My wedding day look was minimalistic, chic and timeless. I’m not a big girlie girl, so I knew from the get-go that I wanted a really simple dress. To go along with the theme, my makeup was also very simple, sans a pop of burnt red on my lips! My dress was the most comfortable thing ever, I wish I could just wear it everyday.

The thing that was the most important to us was making sure each part of our wedding was true to who we are. And maintaining our quirky ideas while still hearing out the opinions of our loved ones!

We both have very specific taste, but along with that are also really low maintenance. From the start, we knew we wanted a really minimalistic, unique vibe – but we were sure to be adaptable and easy going when something didn’t fit our vision exactly.

MATT IS LITERALLY A DREAM. He was laid back and easy going while simultaneously being on top of things and always in control of the situation. It was so clear that he is a pro and knows exactly what he is doing but it also felt like we were just bopping around town with one of our best friends, occasionally taking photos. We have nothing but the best things to say about Matt.
