Beth El Synagogue + International Market Square wedding {Laura + Alan}

I love morning weddings – start with the beautiful morning light, everyone is fresh for the ceremony and still has energy for dancing, which was particularly important for Laura + Alan’s wedding as they had a hora that can only be described as “energetic.” A lovely way to celebrate, all around.

Winter at Aster Cafe for Tera + Ryan’s Engagement

Shooting engagement sessions on a frigid day means that there are very few other folks outside, which is a rarity along St Anthony Main in Minneapolis! I can’t wait to shoot Tera + Ryan’s wedding this summer, and I have a feeling that their wedding party is going to be a lot of fun to be around, too!

St Paul College Club Wedding {JD + Larry}

It was an honor to shoot JD + Larry’s wedding this fall. They made a point to tell that they wanted to spend a lot of time with their guests, and they wanted their guests to feel comfortable and welcome (cocktails before the ceremony is a wonderful idea). A combination of love and champagne made for a very warm, intimate, and vibrant evening, as I am sure their marriage will be as well! st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms putting on boutonnieres st paul college club wedding mnseed packets for place settings st paul college club wedding mngroom with checked tie and cala lilly boutonniere st paul college club wedding mngroomwedding party and two grooms before st paul college club wedding mnsame sex wedding party at st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms in wooden room before st paul college club wedding mnsigning the ketubah st paul college club wedding mnstring quartet plays at st paul college club wedding mnketubah st paul college club wedding mnsocial hour at st paul college club wedding mngrooms walk down aisle at st paul college club wedding mngrooms exchange vows at st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms kiss after wedding at st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms greet guests after wedding at st paul college club wedding mnsocial hour at st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms outside st paul college club wedding mntwo grooms with st paul college club wedding mn
