We had the privilege of interviewing one of our favorite local cookie companies! THE COOKIE CREATIVE is a specialty cookie company based in Minneapolis, MN serving the Twin City area. Their cookies are baked fresh with the finest ingredients and hand-piped to perfection. If you can dream it, they can make it into a cookie!
Cori collaborated with us to create our custom cookie boxes that we give out to each couple who books their wedding with us--so expect something extra special to come in the mail just for YOU! She is truly a one of a kind individual and we loved getting to know her heart for this industry! Enjoy :)
What is your favorite ice cream?
CORI: Have you heard of Minnesota Nice Cream? The best soft serve in town AND you can add glitter (edible glitter, of course). Doesn't get much better than that.
What do you love most about the wedding industry?
CORI: One of the things I love about working in the wedding industry is working with couples and helping them to bring a specific vision to life. It's so much fun to take all these elements, from the dress, to the wedding invitations and find creative ways to incorporate those into a cookie design. The idea that I get to be a part of such a special celebration of love is something that makes me smile and makes my heart feel full.
What keeps you passionate?
CORI: Desserts make people happy and it's a lot of fun for me to design cookies that might have the power to make someone smile or even just pause for a moment. I think we could all use a touch of whimsy in our lives from time to time.
What motivates you to be kind?
CORI: Ever have a really crummy day, like really, really crummy and then some small act of kindness, even something as simple as a genuine smile from another person suddenly brings you out from under that dark cloud? We all have that power and the effects of using it are so far reaching, it's hard to even imagine how great the scope. Also, I just tend to operate on the assumption that everyone out there is as sensitive as I am which may or may not be true.
What is your idea of fun?
CORI: I love activities that really keep you in the moment. Biking is a big one for me and the trails here in the twin cities are pretty fantastic. Aside from that, anything that involves dancing. The best bike scenario is when you're biking to a destination that involves dancing. ;)
What do you love most about The Cottage Farmhouse?
CORI: Is there a more lovely aesthetic? Seriously. That and the options--the mix of outdoor and indoor space and the luxe elegance mixed with warmth and rustic charm and little nuanced details. I can't imagine a more gorgeous space to inhabit on such a special day.
Thanks again for reading more about our FABULOUS vendors! We're blessed to work with such talented individuals.
