Chelsea and Logan’s Minneapolis wedding at Khaluna and Hewing Hotel

This small but mighty wedding started at the Hewing, headed to City Hall for a wedding, then celebrated at Khaluna for a tour of the best of Minneapolis. But first, an existential digression: Anyone else get all existential in the past few years? Like, how do all these systems around us work, and what is our role in them?

A MN Camp Wedding to kick off a year of gratitude What do I say about a wedding that happened in the before times?

Theodore Wirth Chalet Wedding- Brianna and Joe

ENJOYING THIS THEODORE WIRTH CHALET INTO THE EVENING LIGHT Before I talk about the gorgeous summer celebration that was Brianna and Joe’s Theodore Wirth wedding, let me make a quick photo rant: Over and over again, I hear couples ask about tricky lighting situations and dark spaces.

And even though the specific answers can matter a lot, there are a lot of right answers. The most important part is…
