Cordelia and Jacob, and their fall Gale Mansion Wedding in Minneapolis. Complete with autumn colors, and joy, a few tears, and some very exuberant dancing. I think its safe to say that Cordelia and Jacob work hard, and then they bring that same dedication to celebrating with their friends and family. They are based in Washington DC, and it was such a pleasure to coordinate with them across the country for the year before their wedding.
I’m generally more focused on the interactions of people than on details. But including the space in photos of invitations and accessories makes details a part of wedding storytelling, like this invitation in the library of the Gale Mansion in Minneapolis
A lovely thing to document: people who are so happy that they just can’t keep it together.

As the youngest of 5 children, I value the few photos we have of us all together. So if you, like Jacob, have 10 siblings, (plus parents and spouses and kids) you should know that 1. That is awesome and 2. No problem. Let’s do this.

When a groomsman ties all the pocket squares together, keeps them tucked up his sleeve all night, and integrates it into his dance moves? Yeah, its a good party.
