The date: July 19, 2014.

The venue: Bayview Event Center on Lake Minnetonka.

What he wore: Gray sharkskin slim suit by Marc Ecko from Men’s Wearhouse.

What she wore: “Tigris” dress by Matthew Christopher from Posh Bridal Couture in Wayzata.

Wedding style: A midsummer day’s dream with a nautical vibe.


With its stunning lakeside backdrop and vibrant blooming gardens, Bayview Event Center matched the design vision of couple Jennalyn and Matthew Denker.

“We achieved our look by featuring the traditional navy and white nautical color scheme, softened with bold pinks and a smidge of fuchsia florals, and details like playful anchor motifs, rope-wrapped vases and shiny silver lanterns nestled among the tabletop blooms,” Jennalyn said. “Boats and harbors and a moody gray sky completed it all, along with our maids in Victoria’s Secret cobalt blue maxi dresses, adorable sailor ring bearer and flower girl in an Italian ruscus crown.”
