“I remember the day she was born…the first time I got to hold her in my arms in the hospital…and I saw this day clearly in my mind. I could see myself up here, giving this speech to all of you, on the day my daughter would get married.” Toni wiped away tears during her dad’s reception toast. She and Chris had just gotten married at the Minneapolis Club, and I was busy capturing their Minneapolis Club wedding photos. Toni’s dad’s amazing toast encapsulated their day so beautifully – full of stories both hilarious and heartwarming. And Toni wasn’t the only one tearing up in the room.
Toni + Chris started their day by prepping at their nearby hotel as well as the Minneapolis Club. Shortly afterward they were able to have their First Look in the front garden. Tears were flowing by this point – they were both so happy! Afterward, we were able to spend time both outside and inside the Minneapolis Club for portraits. What an amazing venue!
Following the beautiful ceremony that was also full of tears as well as laughter and love, Toni + Chris celebrated with an amazing dinner, toasts, and cake, as well as a packed dance floor as they partied the night away. (There is even photographic evidence of this photographer busting a move out there somewhere!)
Toni + Chris, I am so honored you chose to work with me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer for your Minneapolis Club wedding photos on one of the biggest days of your life, as well as for your fun Bauhaus Brew Labs engagement photos. I am so incredibly happy for you both as well. I wish you the best in your new life together!
