Basilica of St Mary and Minnesota History Center wedding {Caroline + Joe}

History Center Wedding Reception and Basilica Ceremony

Even now, years later, looking at Caroline and Joe’s wedding as I work on their album, I can feel the total joy and pleasure it was to be there. The hot Minneapolis summer day, the quiet dark Basilica, the laughing bridesmaids, the laughing parents, the laughing couple. It is a wedding that could have happened in 1920 without many changes (perhaps less laser engraving and fewer phones), but the sentiment, the locations, the joy would have been the same. It is timeless.

Wettest June in Minnesota you say? As long as they keep coming with the best clouds on record, things will be just fine. This was a moment when we were finishing up with photos at Gold Medal Park with Caroline and Joe, and then, as I turned around, I realized that this was the photo we had been missing. Quick lighting set up with my assistant Wendy, and we were ready to make those clouds work for us.
