Claire and Nick's wedding featured family heirlooms and meaningful details galore.
A Sentimental Celebration at Villa Aletta
Wedding Date: May 22, 2021
When Kaitlynn Grube and Spencer Ulven met through mutual friends on New Year’s Eve 2017, they never imagined they would be each other’s midnight kiss for the rest of their lives. Fate was at work that summer, when their friend group made plans for tacos and margaritas, but only Kaitlynn and Spencer showed up. Two years later, the couple was gazing at Christmas lights when Spencer asked her to marry him. Their wedding showcased a classic palette of blush, white and pops of greenery, with décor mostly made by the groom and the bride’s father. Guests were welcomed by a cornhole “guestbook” the bride’s father made, and a ladder by the groom’s father holding photos of the couple. Kaitlynn’s “something borrowed” was an emerald ring borrowed from her mother (and originally owned by her grandmother). One of the couple’s best friends officiated, and Kaitlynn and Spencer read handwritten vows. The day was a perfect representation of the couple with multiple desserts, craft beers and ’90s throwbacks. In May, the couple plans to relive the joy of the day by reading letters they wrote to each other at the ceremony. And a sign hangs in their home reading “All because they ate tacos and drank margaritas.”
