A wedding at the Minneapolis Club and joyous celebrations
Katie and Dan had this to say about me: “Everyone says that you should like your photographer, given that they will be with you for most of the day, and there is no way that you won’t love Becca.”
I’m deeply touched by their kind words. I feel do very lucky to be able to do what I love doing – working with people, documenting their celebrations, making it all a little easier.
Katie and Dan’s wedding at the Minneapolis Club was really lovely and I hope that, with these photos, you can see how much they enjoyed their wedding, and how much I enjoyed photographing it!
It was beautiful, and well planned, but more importantly it was really fun. Katie and Dan spent a lot of time with their guests, and with their families. They laughed so very much. Their maid of honor sang an entire song about them as a toast, and everyone laughed, and it was just totally perfectly gorgeous. And then there was dancing, which was bonkers great.
I just loved being there. I loved photographing it, and working with Katie and Dan (and Katie’s mom, who was a joy). I’m incredibly happy for them that they found each other and they got to enjoy their celebration so much.
It was a great day, and that was enough.
ABOUT WEDDINGS AT THE MINNEAPOLIS CLUB
The Minneapolis Club is a spectacular space for weddings. I’ve enjoyed photographing many weddings there, working with their absolutely professional staff, and bringing the rich detail of the space into images.
In my opinion, photos in the Minneapolis Club should always focus on showing the features of the rooms.
For Katie and Dan’s wedding, we used so many different spaces, each with it’s own unique gifts to share in photos!
Minneapolis Club Outside Space: the exterior of the Minneapolis club feels like old Minneapolis in a way that you rarely see. The walls are covered in ivy, and if the weather permits, taking a few photos outside can bring a sense of nature into your images.
The Second Floor Main Lounge: This is a space that is often used for ceremonies and for dancing. The wall of window benches and dark wood details bring a lot of architectural interest into this space. In the evening, it has a very intimate feel. For dancing, it can be quite dark, so I often use various lighting techniques to balance the warm light.
Minneapolis Club Library: The second floor library is like stepping into another era – rich dark woods and chairs with walls lined with books. Definitely consider using this space for cocktail hour, and also for more moody portraits.
Main Grand Dinning Room: The rich woods and stained glass of the third floor Main Grand Dining Room are some of my favorite features of the entire space. When set for dinner, I love to take a multi-image panorama to show the high ceiling arches.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

And so it is with Katie and Dan, who have found each other and a beautiful life together. It was such an honor to celebrate with them at the Minneapolis Club on the finest November in record.
