A Colsie Love Story: The MacLeods

On New Years Day this year, Alexandria and Christopher exchanged vows surrounded only by their nearest and dearest and the snow-covered banks of Minneapolis' Lake Nokomis.

We love this couple’s love story, which sounds like a classic romance movie. Hoping to pursue a career in Switzerland, Alexandria wanted to brush up her German. Christopher had studied the language and lived in Germany as a student. The two met for coffee.

As they say, the rest is history.

Mr and Mrs MacLeod share a love for nature and family, so decided to have an intimate outdoor wedding of just 10 people.

As a thank you for sharing their day (and braving the Minnesota cold), the couple gifted each guest one of our recycled wool knee blankets. The stunning bride even wrapped up in our Baird tartan blanket, bringing a hint of bright Scottish purple to their American wedding.

"The blankets were definitely a fantastic touch to the wedding and were the only decorations we needed to add colour and warmth to the day," Alexandria told us. 

Our knee blankets are perfect for an outdoor wedding. They’re great for your guests to wrap up in if temperatures drop, or for draping over their knees.

The blankets are also durable, making them a wedding favour they will actually use for years to come.

The MacLeods (and their dog, Frankie) are off to Bern, Switzerland in August. The TBCo team would like to wish them all the best on their next adventure together. Thank you for including us in your wee fairytale.
