Minneapolis Guthrie Theater Winter Wedding – Jill and Brant

A winter wedding in a dark space at the top of the city? Perfect. That is exactly what Jill and Brant had for their celebration – dark, intimate spaces, a view overlooking the Mississippi river, and the most glamorous space in Minneapolis.

Jill and Brant’s wedding at the Guthrie theater was a little bit of fire and ice- the intimate candlelight ceremony, the vivacious live band; the ice sculpture, the multi course wine-paired dinner; the mix of small and large; intimate and public; quiet and raucous.

Their candle-lit ceremony was gorgeous to witness – intimate and dark, but so warm and still.

I couldn’t be happier for these – a perfect way to have a winter wedding in Minneapolis.

I also have a few different panoramas from this wedding – I shoot location panoramas at almost every wedding. Occasionally, when I am waiting for photoshop to crunch together 10 images of a wedding reception, or a 100 photos of a portrait, I think “why am I chopping up my workflow for an image that this couples might not even notice”

And the answer, even though people don’t always notice a panorama, is that it adds to the storytelling of the wedding day. It adds a bit of exposition and structure and texture to the whole gallery of images.

A panorama makes sure that you understand what it *feels* to be there, not just what it looks like to be there. Intimate, magical, dramatic.
