Landmark Center Wedding Photos | Katie + Brett

Katie + Brett had a bit of a challenge planning their wedding. While they both called the Minneapolis area home, they also recently moved away for jobs and school – not even together but in separate states! Luckily they weren’t too far away, so we were still able to meet, as well as have an amazing time during their engagement session at Como Park Conservatory last year. After a lot of driving and remote planning, their wedding day in January was finally here!

We began their big day by getting ready at the Intercontinental Hotel on the St Paul riverfront. Such an amazing, modern, chic hotel! Once the two of them were ready to go, we headed over to the Landmark Center for Katie + Brett’s first look. We were up on the fourth floor in the spectacular Chief Justice Room. Such an amazing moment, I was even tearing up too. Afterward, we had fun taking portraits of the two of them together throughout the Landmark Center’s beautiful architecture.

After Katie + Brett’s portraits, we photographed their wedding party images and family portraits at the beautiful Landmark Center. We then headed up to St Stephen’s Catholic Church in Anoka for their wedding ceremony – they were so joyful! After a few large group portraits following their ceremony, we headed back down to the Landmark Center for their reception.

The Landmark Center was sparkling and glowing for Katie + Brett’s reception. They started with a cocktail hour, then followed with their grand entrance, dinner and toasts – so many laughs and tears! Finally, the dance floor was jumping with their DJ and dance party. Everyone was having so much fun!

Katie + Brett, thank you so much for including me in your big day. I am so honored to have worked with you, and I wish you the happiest life together!

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Wedding Photos | Allison + Joseph

Allison + Joseph held their wedding at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on a crisp, cold winter day just past the 2017 New Year.

Following their wedding preparations, the two of them held their first look in the Conservatory inside the Snyder Building, a warm glass room filled with succulents, orchids and other delicate plants. They were so sweet and joyous together. There may have been just a few tears too!

Their wedding ceremony was held in the Fireplace Room in the Snyder Building – a charming, elegant space overlooking the green pond and featuring a fireplace as its centerpiece. Such a perfect atmosphere for a bright, sparkling, chilly winter day! After Allison + Joseph said their ‘I Do’s’, they headed straight out to cocktail hour just down the stairs to welcome their guests. After they spent a bit of time visiting with well-wishers, we snuck out to photograph them among the light sculptures of the Bruce Munro Light Show at the Landscape Arboretum. One word to describe it: WOW!!! Such gorgeous artwork – mysterious, fanciful lights among the trees – it would have been easy to spend a whole night photographing there if it wasn’t such a cold day in MN.

Once we were back in the building to warm up, we headed to Allison + Joseph’s reception at the Snyder Auditorium, with its gorgeous chandeliers and curved ceilings. They had such a wonderful time with dinner, toasts, and dancing! They even followed it up with a dessert bar featuring donuts, cookies and other treats.

Allison + Joseph, thank you so much for including me on one of the biggest events of your lives. I’m so happy for the two of you, and with you every happiness in your new lives together!
