Wedding Updates from Nick & J-me

We sent the following notice out via email to our friends and family… but since not everybody has email, we’re posting it here as well just in case. Also for posterity. 🙂

Dear Friends and Family,

The big day is getting closer and closer! The little orange envelopes have been a treat to come home to and we’re very excited that many of you will be able to attend.

We understand that weddings are hectic and it’s very hard to spend enough time with everyone the night of. We also know that many of you are traveling quite a distance to be here with us on our special day and that means so much to us! As such, we’re trying to make the most of the weekend, and we’re planning to do a few things that we hope you’ll be able to do too.

Psycho Suzi's

Friday night – Rendezvous at Psycho Suzi’s

Psycho Suzi’s is one of Minneapolis’ most popular bars – and for good reason. The beautiful outdoor patio overlooks the Mississippi River and its indoor decor, handcrafted by local artists, makes you feel like you’re in a tropical lounge paradise. On Friday and Saturday nights, they open the second floor of the bar. Three bars, live Tiki music later in the evening, fondue and volcanic tiki drinks await.

Now, the bar gets INCREDIBLY crowded, but we really want to experience it with you. We’re planning to go there around 5:30 after we wrap up a quick rehearsal at the gallery. Please let us know if you’re planning to join us. The plan is to eat downstairs and then go upstairs for drinks and to check out the tiki band. A note to those with small children, while you can take little ones for dinner downstairs and on the patio, the upstairs bar is 21+. Please let us know if you plan to join us Friday – we’ll do our best to carve out a big space.

Psycho Suzi’s: 1900 Marshall Street NE, Minneapolis, MN


Saturday night – the Wedding!

As a favor to ourselves as well as to you, wedding and reception will all be held at one location. (Altered Esthetics Gallery – 1224 Quincy Street NE, Minneapolis MN) There will be appetizers and drinks available before the ceremony, and after the brief ceremony we’ll be serving a yummy meal and having music and more refreshments.

Another note to those with small children: there will be an open bar and a bonfire later in the evening.


Twins Territory

Sunday afternoon – Tour the Twins’ Stadium!

Just because they’re not playing their best this year doesn’t make the stadium any less amazing. We’ve scheduled a private tour of the Twins Stadium for 1pm on Sunday to help make the Minneapolis weekend even more memorable.

From their website: During your guided tour to Target Field, you’ll see areas of the ballpark guests normally don’t see. These spaces may include the press box, clubhouse, dugout and other premium areas (all subject to availability).

We have to book a tour for each group of 25 people, so if you would like to join us please let us know ASAP.

Target Field: 1 Twins Way, Minneapolis, MN

For those in want of breakfast, we’ll be stopping by Grumpy’s Bar in downtown on our way to the stadium. They have some of the best Bloody Marys in Minneapolis and also food if you want a bite to eat. It’s close by, free parking, and one of our favorite local haunts.

Grumpy’s: 1111 Washington Ave S, Minneapolis, MN


Well, there you have it. The weekend in a nutshell! We especially hope that you travelers will get to take advantage of the awesome other stuff there is to do in the Twin Cities. Jamie’s going to be adding awesome foodie places to eat and other fun stuff to do while you are in Minnesota to our blog:  And if you have any questions or want specific recommendations, just ask us! Some people have asked about where we are registered and there is information about that on the blog too, as well as a few hotel recommendations.

looking forward to seeing you soon!


Nick and Jamie
