Rain. Rain, rain, and more rain. Jamie + Tim’s wedding day was full of rain. Fortunately, rain on a wedding day symbolizes good luck. Also, fortunately, they had three gorgeous venues for their day, so we were able to capture beautiful St Paul Hotel wedding photos, Church of the Assumption wedding photos, and Minnesota History Center wedding photos despite the rain!
We started the day at The Saint Paul Hotel. Following their wedding prep, we held Jamie + Tim’s first look in the grand hotel lobby, filled with chandeliers, flowers, a sweeping staircase and gorgeous golden mirror and other accents. We were also able to photograph the wedding party in front of the stunning marble fireplace.
Next was Jaime + Tim’s beautiful wedding ceremony held at the Church of the Assumption in St Paul. Such a spectacular, traditional church built in the 1800s. The ceremony was complete with elegant singing, an enormous, regal pipe organ and even a trumpeter.
From there we headed over to the Minnesota History Center for Jaime + Tim’s wedding reception. The gorgeous venue was the perfect backdrop for their celebratory bash – floor-to-ceiling windows, marble and granite decorated in white linen, blush pink and gold accents, as well as the fun history aesthetics including an enormous vintage airplane, postcard decor, etc. Cocktail hour was followed by dinner, complete with toasting full of laughter and tears. Afterward, everyone danced the night away. It was fun to see my former couple Safiyyah + Rory, in which I originally met Jamie as Safiyya’s maid of honor at their Aria wedding last year!
Jamie + Tim, you are such a picture of happiness and I wish you the best as you begin your new lives together. I am so happy for you both, and also thankful to you for hiring me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer on your amazing wedding day!
