Our 2016 wedding photography season kicked off with a bang for Kim + Lucas’ big day, held at the ever-gorgeous Aria in Minneapolis!
Kim + Lucas were married on a cool, dry March day – we felt to be pretty lucky that we were not inundated with snow at the time. The day started off with the happy couple preparing in the separate dressing rooms of Aria. Once they were ready to go, we held their first look near the back of Aria. The look on Lucas’ face was priceless – the best mix of smiles and tears! Next we spent time on portraits of them, as well as including their bridal party and families. We followed up with a little more time on portraits up in the Aria lounges.
Kim + Lucas’ Aria ceremony was held as a “wedding-in-the-round”, a really cool configuration in which Kim + Lucas were in the center, and all the guests were seated entirely around them in a large circle. The bonus was that being at Aria, we could get upstairs to see the circle from above. It was so amazing!
After the ceremony, the wedding party snuck over to The Tangiers next door for a quick celebratory drink, then headed back to greet guests during Aria’s lobby cocktail hour. Once the main room was set for dinner, guests were treated to a gorgeous display of candles, glass, silver and wood among the beautiful Aria ambiance. Dinner was followed by toasting, and then on to dancing and Photo Booth fun!
Kim + Lucas, I am so honored that you chose to work with me on your amazing day, and I wish you every happiness in your new life together!
