St Paul College Club Wedding – Brittany and Stacy

Brittany and Stacy’s St Paul College Club wedding was one of the last weddings I photographed before COVID-19 changed events and the world.

Why weddings are forever changed: Julia and Dan’s intimate restaurant wedding

As we think about what weddings will look like “on the other side” of this pandemic, I’m excited to think about what we will take with us as a culture from this time of difficulty and clarity.
