So happy to share the images from Melanie & Steve’s wedding at St Thomas More in St Paul. Their wedding stands out as a perfect blend of classic beauty and modern celebration – old spaces and raucous parties make for an amazing mix.

They hit the highlights of St Paul – Beautiful Spanish architecture of the St Thomas More Catholic Church, the old St Paul decadence of Hotel 340 / University Club, and a little extra fun in Rice Park with their wedding party.

Ceremony: St Thomas More Catholic Church
Reception: University Club / Hotel 340

Perhaps the most gorgeous interior of a church in MInnesota – the color and architecture are a little unexpected, I used a tilt shift lens to heighten the focus.

Melanie & Steve’s wedding will live in my memory as having the most raucous limo ride in history. But it was also full of quiet moments, like this pause before their first dance.
