We offer custom design work that is built from scratch based on your own personal vision, as well as pre-designed semi-custom suites which we are happy to tweak to make just perfect for your special occasion. Our found, Josie Helmstetter, was born in Inverness, Scotland, and though she was still a wee bairn when her family moved to the United States, she still treasures her Scottish roots (so much that they inspired the name of the company!) She attended college in Southeastern Minnesota and also Oxford University in South East England, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Winona State University. Eager to expand her horizons, Josie explored the world in her twenties, absorbing the beauty and culture of Europe and Asia while falling ever deeper in love with design. Eventually settling in Southern California, Josie found work in the fast-paced world of advertising, employed by agencies in San Diego and then Los Angeles. Her design work took a personal turn after she fell in love and started planning her wedding. Josie adored the process of designing timeless stationery, knowing that each piece would be held and read by the people she cared about the most. Soon after, friends planning their own weddings asked that she create their stationery, and what began as a heartfelt favor for friends soon blossomed into a creatively fulfilling custom business of her own. Eleven years, two kids, and one dog later, life couldn’t be sweeter for Josie and our Ivory Isle Team. We work with people from all over the world, incorporating different cultures in our designs and printing in languages as diverse as French and Bosnian. Variety keeps the work fresh and engaged. It’s a big part of why we all are so in love with what we do. There are no small jobs.

We've all experienced the magic that music can bring to any moment. Maybe it's the soundtrack to the first kiss you shared. Or the jam that gets you both up and dancing no matter what kind of day it's been. Music moves us, changes us...and makes us feel magical ourselves. Still, maybe you haven't thought too much about what kind of impact an entire day of music made just for you could have on this next step in your journey together. But here's what we've learned: Long after they remember who sat where or how the cake tasted on their big day, couples recall the breathlessness of that first dance. They feel the excitement in the melody that accompanied the walk down the aisle. Music unlocks those memories in a way no other force in the universe can. Abiding Harmony uses original compositions and high-end sound equipment to create a cinematic atmosphere during your ceremony. Accomplished composer, Bill Finn, blends both of your modern musical tastes with traditional instrumentation of your choosing to truly give you a one-of-a-kind moment. Sound Engineer, Todd Smith, uses modern sound technology to not only ensure every note is heard, but also make sure everyone can clearly hear the officiant, the vows, and the readings. In addition to the production at the ceremony, you will also receive a studio recording of your composition, a live recording of the ceremony, and a hand-scripted page from the music. We would love to chat with you more about how Abiding Harmony can help uniquely accent your special day. Please feel free to contact us at (612) 836-7800 and we can set up a meeting at our NE Minneapolis studio.

Each wedding is as unique as the couple in it; it is an experience as much as it is an event. A bride and groom spend a lot of time and effort planning their big day down to the smallest details, and I feel honored to be there to capture it all. From the boudoir and bride getting ready, to the emotional first look, to the breathtaking romantic moments of their special day... I am there to document the emotions, details and beautiful memories. I enjoy working in a natural light setting to achieve the soft, airy, romantic style. I photograph with a fine art approach by using both, a digital camera and a medium format film camera, which makes my work stand out. My photography focuses on capturing emotions, happiness and creating stylish imagery in the highest quality. I take time to get to know each couple that I work with to learn what it is that they expect, and make sure I go above and beyond to leave them satisfied. Most of my clients become life long friends and I feel blessed to document their families' wonderful life events. It is my greatest privilege to capture memories for my clients so they could relive them for many years to come. I love to combine my passions for art, photography, and travel to photograph unique moments and unique settings. My work has been featured in publications and magazines in the United States and in Europe.
Fifteen years ago, we were in the same place you were – recently engaged, planning all the details of our wedding day, and most importantly, looking forward to a beautiful life together! We believe wholeheartedly in marriage, and our biggest hope for you is to build a marriage that is even more beautiful than this amazing wedding you are planning! You’re now planning the very day that you’ve likely been anticipating your entire life, and I’m sure your mind is racing a little bit with all that needs to get done. Our goal as your wedding photographers is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple, and hopefully offer helpful advice in other areas along the way. We want you to have the best wedding ever while we capture the moments you will remember the for rest of your lives! We strive to create images that are beautiful, natural and full of life! Our style is photo-journalistic in nature, detail-oriented and candid, and we will guide you to look natural and beautiful, but not overly posed. Your images will be lightly edited in classic color or timeless black & white. We live & breath weddings, and love this industry with our whole hearts. We would be honored to be a small part of your story. So, let’s connect and find out if we are the right fit!
Studio 220 is built on the mission to deliver exceptional experiences for our clients, employees, partners & vendors. We trace our beginnings back to 2006… when our founders recognized an alarming trend in the wedding photography industry, as the internet and advances in technology enabled hundreds of untrained and inexperienced amateur photographers to flood the market, showing up at bridal shows, and charging rates typically reserved for only the most highly referred photographers in the industry. This influx of amateurs with little more than good websites and high prices created confusion for clients and made it difficult to identify which photographers were truly experienced professionals. This also made it nearly impossible for brides and grooms to find photography that met their needs and their budget from a real professional. These same issues were pervasive in the lifestyle portraits photography market as well. And so, in mid-2007, Studio 220 was born! Born with a purpose… to make high quality photography service available at an affordable price. Sadly, those issues have only become more pervasive today. And because of that, our mission and purpose remains the same today: Provide a high value service to our clients. Always deliver high quality service with some of the most talented photographers in the market, and keep pricing affordable. We’ve brought together the best parts of the “photography boutique” with the best parts of the “photography studio” with relentless focus on client satisfaction… and the result is a Boutique Studio Delivering Exceptional Experiences for our clients!

Bigger than mini golf, New life for an old factory. Can Can Wonderland isn’t just a fun name to say. It’s also an homage to the origins of this great place. Dating back to 1889, the building was home to the American Can Company, can manufacturer for many notable brands as Carnation, Campbell’s Soup, Del Monte, American National Can and others. In 1999, American Can Company won “Can of the Year” honors for another home state hero — the two-piece Spam can. We’ll go as far as saying that without the American Can Company, we might not have heard of Andy Warhol. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch. Nostalgia is the name of the game, and Can Can does it best. We are equipped to host up to 550 guests for food, merriment and celebration. Think of us as a blank canvas of fun; a one-stop-shop for family and loved ones.

Our founder, Hana April Chughtai, has an extensive background in designing luxury wedding and events. After countless mornings spent with brides on their special day, Hanax realized that most of the bridal parties were not wearing anything unique or special, even though photographers were capturing every moment as their got their hair and makeup done. The clothing didn’t show off their style, match the colors for their wedding, or even reflect the personality of the bride. Bminx launched to fill the void in the market. We offer high quality products that are also ecofriendly material. Trend-forward designs and long-lasting fashion you can wear past the day of the wedding. Fun and the perfect gift for your bridal party. Completely personalized and totally representative of you and your wedding. Best of all, with our giving back initiative, each purchase donates a T-shirt to a child in need, so you can feel good that your purchase is directly helping others. We are passionate about making sure children around the globe are aware of just how strong they are, and what they can overcome anything that comes in their path. We hope to make a difference to a child, One Shirt and One Smile at a time. Welcome to bminx!
We are shimlee.™ An internet-based printing company that specializes in printing your photographs onto real, North American hardwoods. Creating your shimlee is easy! Using your phone, tablet, or computer, simply go to our website, www.shimlee.com, pick your size of real wood, upload your photo, and check out! We ship shimlees nationwide and turnaround time is typically just a couple of business days. Based out of Edgewood, Iowa, Shimlee is a division of Kendrick, Inc., a family owned and operated company that strives to be the best producer of wood products. Shimlee’s sister company is Kendrick Forest Products. Kendrick Forest Products, or KFP as we lovingly refer to the company, is the largest producing saw mill in the state of Iowa. KFP harvests trees from the timber, transports the logs to our facility in Edgewood, Iowa and then saws those logs into boards. Some of these boards are used to build the cutting edge custom cabinets we produce at our other division, Forever Cabinets. Most of these boards are sold to flooring, cabinet, and furniture companies throughout the United States and various other countries throughout the world. At KFP, we try not to waste any part of the tree. Our sawdust is burned to heat our facility and kilns. The bark is shredded, dyed and sold as mulch for landscaping. And those thin pieces of wood we cut off the log when we’re prepping it to saw into a lumber order are used to build our Shimlee prints. Those thin pieces happen to be called… shims. Shimlees are great for all occasions! Weddings, family and newborn portraits, gifts, etc. They come in a wide range of portrait, landscape, and staggered sizes. Shimlees are easy to hang on wall or can be displayed leaning or sitting on a secure surface. We also offer a custom service where you can add words or graphics to your prints. To do so just email firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests to receive proofs and quotes. So why should you choose Shimlee to display your photos? Because showcasing your photos on real wood is a great alternative to the traditional prints. The natural grain of the wood showing through your photographs provides you with a unique and charming piece of art to cherish for years to come. Each moment you capture tells a story. At Shimlee we want to help you tell that story with real moments on real wood.
