St Paul University Club Wedding – Melissa + Patrick

Melissa and Patrick planned their St Paul wedding from DC. I know there is a huge amount of trust required when so many meetings are done via phone and email and skype. It was a total honor to photograph their gorgeous, classic St Paul wedding. The pictures are lovely and splendiferous! Thank you for capturing our day so very beautifully. We had so much fun with you and could not have imagined a better result! Melissa & Patrick Ceremony: Central Presbyterian Reception: St Paul University ClubFlorist: Christine’s Floral Touch

Southview Country Club wedding

I’ve loved photographing Southview Country Club weddings over the years. The grounds have been lovely, and the reception have been full of laughter and dancing. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the grounds and the receptions! Location: Southview Country Club

Lake of the Isles Church + St Paul University Club wedding {Liz + Andy}

I really like the phrase “work hard, play hard”, and I think that Liz and Andy kind of blur the line between the two: I have a feeling that most days have an element of “play” for them, even in the midst of their busy and productive lives. Case in point, Liz brought a tambourine to the reception, because, now that I think of it, who *wouldn’t* want to play the tambourine while dancing? I am so happy that Liz + Andy have found each other to share each other’s wild adventures and small joys. Ceremony: Lake of the Isles…

University Club of St Paul Wedding {Megan + Josh}

Photographing a photographer’s wedding is a slightly terrifying honor. In the case of Megan and Josh (who, along with his sister, knows his way around a camera!), it was also a challenge that I fully enjoyed. Megan had planned a stunning wedding at the University Club of St Paul, and the small moments that she shared with Josh, from their first look to their gift exchanges to their post-ceremony private walk, were a true joy to document. Thanks for choosing me to be a part of such a lovely day! 

Como Park Conservatory Wedding {Lindsay + Phillip}

Lindsay and Phillip have had many memorable days at Como Park – a first date, Phillip’s proposal, and now their wedding. A truly gorgeous and joyous place for the start of their marriage! Ceremony: Bethlehem Lutheran Church Reception: Como Park Conservatory

Woods Chapel and St Paul Hotel wedding {Kristen + Chad}

A lot of laughter, a lot of sun, and lots of family were key ingredients in Kristen + Chad’s wedding! Such a beautiful celebration of their marriage.  Ceremony: Woods Chapel Reception: St Paul Hotel

St Thomas More Church wedding – Grace + Andy

I have been jokingly referring to Grace + Andy’s wedding as the most stylish St Paul wedding of 1930. As modern as they both are as people, they bring a timeless quality to their relationship – they share joy with their family and friends, and they clearly find comfort and love in each other. Grace wore the same wedding dress that her Grandmother and mother wore, Andy brings a touch of Cary Grant to his demeanor, and they will obviously pass all their love onto their future children for many more generations to come.

St Paul Cathedral and Profile Event Center Wedding {Kate & Tim}

How to balance the solemnity of commitment with the breathless joy of celebration? Ask Kate & Tim, because that seems to be how they live their lives. From the laughter filled portraits to the traditional catholic ceremony and back to the raucous reception, they completed a perfect balance of a wedding day. Congratulations for finding each other, and for knowing how to celebrate in a style all your own! Ceremony: St Paul Cathedral Reception: Profile Event Center
