A wedding planner by trade, Jane Schewe has helped many brides walk down the aisle. While leading her all-inclusive, Minneapolis-based wedding planning company, See Jane Plan, Schewe slowly curated a list of favorite resources. So when the time came to assemble a top-notch team in just a few months for her own wedding, she knew she could pull it off. Taking inspiration from the abundant winter foliage in Minnesota, Schewe created a day worthy of a fairy tale. She arrived in a horse-drawn carriage and walked down the aisle to the tune of Clarke’s “Trumpet Voluntary.” Moments later, each of the couple’s 100 guests held a candle in support of the union, casting a warm glow on the intimate ceremony. “To see our guests’ faces lit by candlelight was a sight to behold,” Schewe says.

Mirroring the snowy setting, Jane Schewe chose a bouquet of frothy white peonies and creamy ranunculus.
Below a wreath decked in white and gold, trays of cookies prepared by Farina Baking Company gave a nice nod to the couple’s beginnings.
“I work with a local cigar roller often, and even though it was minus 11° that night, I booked him,” Schewe says. “That was the one thing Keric was dying to have.”
How They Met
Almost five years ago, Jane Schewe met Keric Lickerman on another crisp December day while they were students at the University of Missouri. Her sorority sister was dating Lickerman’s brother at the time, and the rest, as they say, is history. While Lickerman pursued a medical degree, Schewe steeped herself in the world of weddings. From her passion for all things bridal came See Jane Plan, a business that promises elegant weddings synonymous with clinking champagne glasses and satis ed brides. So when Lickerman popped the question, Schewe wasted no time. She chose a date that would accommodate his demanding medical school schedule and take advantage of a last-minute opening of the couple’s dream venue, Minneapolis’s Minikahda Club.
