For their fall wedding in Eagan, Minnesota, Lindsey (she/her) and Sheena (she/her) chose a seasonal color palette of forest green, silvery gray, black and cream. Their wedding party wore forest green dresses and gray suits with matching green ties, while Lindsey chose a fitted lace white dress and Sheena donned an all-black suit ensemble.

The brides are recreational rugby players, and Sheena incorporated their love of the sport into the ceremony in a delightful and unexpected way. When asked if she took Lindsey as her wife, Sheena ran over to her side of the wedding party, pulling them into a rehearsed huddle. After taking a second, Sheena returned to the altar with a smile and said, “yes.”

Lindsey and Sheena’s floral arrangements included white roses, baby’s breath and a variety of greenery and pine leaves. The fall theme was accentuated by a pumpkin custom carved with their anniversary and a set of black-and-white cupcake towers adorned with string lights. Self-sticking rhinestones, inspired by the popular HBO show Euphoria, were provided for anyone who wanted to add some glitter to their party look. The rugby brides entered the reception hall to a chorus of applause, followed by a parade of their wedding party members. The party entrance was a contest, and whoever got the most applause won. One of their bridesmaids wore a shark head, but the newlyweds won by a landslide!

“It was very important to us to have photos from the day that were more than just people next to each other smiling,” Lindsey says. “Looking at our photos brings us right back to that amazing day, and reminds us of the love and laughter we shared with each and every one of our guests. Our bridal personalities shine through the images and we will forever cherish these photos.”
