Day of the dead Edina wedding {Lindsey + Brandon}

I generally don’t go for long description of my clients and what they planned, or gush over details. I love weddings because I love real moments, no matter if the tablescapes were perfectly planned or not. I love when people bring themselves into their weddings, no matter if that manifests as a sparkly princess gown or a simple cocktail dress.

That said, there is something exceptionally fun about a bride who will wear her grandmothers (stunning!) wedding gown while also wearing day of the dead skull makeup. And, as you can imagine, Lindsey + Brandon are exceptional people who have found in one another the perfect compliment. I am so thrilled to have been a part of their wedding, and we had a lot of fun to boot.

    Never done a small intimate wedding like this, I think I would panic worrying about not having enough going on to capture.

    Some great posing on the couples portraits.
