Live music, vintage theater, and snow wedding {Susan + Levi}

If music be the food of love, play on – Susan + Levi’s wedding at Loring Pasta Bar and Varsity Theater.

Loring Pasta Bar wedding ceremony – Heidi + Nick

The wedding party was neatly arranged – a pleasant balance of height and color – I snapped a picture, and then a swarm of runners raced past. We had inadvertently posed at the start of a 5K, and the wedding party cheered them on. And thus began Nick and Heidi’s wedding. They may be accountants and natural planners, but they allow a lot of spontaneity to pop in, and that makes for a beautiful combination. ABOUT THEIR LORING WEDDING The Loring restaurant is one of the most unique spaces in the country for a wedding ceremony. Guests always are shocked…

Minneapolis winter wedding at Varsity Theater {Shannon + Sean}

Shannon + Sean put effort into the little things that mattered to them (like Sean’s amazing ring made from Elk horn, or Shannon’s blue gloves), and then they let the rest of the day unfold as it would, from a little snow to a lot of laughter and some great food. What a perfect way to warm up a Minneapolis winter! Hotel: Aloft Ceremony: Loring Pasta Bar Reception: Varsity Theater Floral: Martha’s Gardens

Varsity Theater Wedding Minneapolis {Jessica & Mike}

“For the rest of our days” is the question that Mike asked Jessica when they got engaged, and the promise they made to each other at their wedding. I couldn’t be happier that I was able to be there as they began a new chapter of days together! ABOUT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE VARSITY I’ve photographed many weddings at the Loring restaurant and Varsity Theater. They are two well matched spaces that each have enough character to make an entire celebration. Couples often ask me what spaces will work in the Varsity for photography? There are honestly almost infinite possibilities…

Varsity Theater & Loring Pasta Bar wedding {Molly & Andy}

If you are planning a wedding, take a note from Molly & Andy’s: get the right people involved, find the things that are important to you, and then just let it happen. I admire how they can stay in the moment – from the hilarious faces they make to their utter respect and love for each other. Nice job, you two, in finding each other and then planning a great celebration.
