Winter Aria Wedding – Maura and Tony

This winter Aria wedding is from a world before COVID, so you won’t see the masks, distancing, and smaller sizes that mark this time in our history. To see more examples of recent weddings, check out my Instagram. To see how I approach photos during the pandemic, here are my ideas for wedding group photos during COVID-19.

Maura and Tony’s winter Aria wedding was the kind of intimate and joy-filled day that stays with me. Their ceremony, in the lobby/foyer of Aria in Minneapolis, was bright with an industrial vibe. Their reception featured both a pretzel bar and a dessert bar (amazing job, as always, Angel Food Bakery!)

But what stands out the most, particularly in light of the global pandemic that followed it, is the closeness. The unaffected intimacy, and how much we could take that for granted. The casual hugging, the sharing of food and space and air.

I’m so happy to share this beautiful wedding, and hoping these lovely memories have been a balm during the isolation of 2020.
