Allie & Erik are high school sweethearts and are also two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! Erik proposed to Allie in June of 2022. Allie is a fitness instructor at Lifetime and a friend of hers from there reached out asking if she’d like to take a photoshoot for her brand in Downtown Wayzata with a few of her girlfriends. Of course Allie said yes! So the day of the shoot, they all met in downtown Wayzata and started taking pictures. Lily, who was the photographer and also ended up being their wedding photographer, asked if they wanted to go to a new location. She also suggested some of the girls go back to the car and get a few props, so all the girls “walked” back to the car and Allie + Lily walked to the shoreline. After about a 10 minute walk, Allie saw a beautiful set up proposal spot right on Wayzata beach. It was a magical moment and Allie will forever be blown away by it! Allie & Erik then went to lunch and afterwards headed to his parents house where 60 of their friends and family were waiting to surprise them. The story doesn’t end there! Read on to learn more about their timeless royal club wedding in twin cities!
Allie & Erik’s three must haves for their wedding were good music, amazing florals and an open bar! They wanted a classic, yet formal wedding, and their dream team of vendors was able to do just that. The Royal Club has an atmosphere that is both luxurious and romantic, and was the perfect setting for Allie & Erik’s special day. The venue was adorned with a timeless black and white theme, with an added touch of elegance to the entire event.
Allie went with a stunning sleek dress from Annika Bridal, with her veil from Pnina Tornai. The girls were in stunning black dresses from Birdy Grey and the guys in suits from Atmosfere. Erik opted for a suit from Suit Supply.
Speaking of veil, scroll down to see Allie + Erik so excited to be married that they started running after being announced Mr + Mrs that the veil came loose 🙂
The decor was simply breathtaking – Allie sure does have an eye for this! There were fresh flowers consisting of babies breath, roses and greenery throughout the reception hall and ceremony space. The wedding cake was a classic white cake on a black cake stand with babies breath surrounding it.
Allie & Erik’s wedding was truly a timeless royal club wedding, with breathtaking decor, great music, and and mouthwatering food. We are so honored to have been a part of their special day! Scroll down to see all the stunning photos from their big day.

“Hanna & her team were beyond amazing!!! Her attention to detail & communication are out of this world!!!! Everything went amazingly well that day and I cannot express how appreciative we are for everything that you guys did for us. If I were to do it all over again, with no doubt- Hanna would be there again. She was very knowledgeable about everything we needed to do, and she was with us every step of the way. She made our lives much less stressful!!!! As for the wedding day, everything was perfect and went without a hitch! Highly recommend!!!”
