Silverwood Park, Church and Back Yard Wedding
Katharine was a native of Minnesota, although she and her fiancé Zachary moved to Iowa for work. They planned on coming back to MN for their wedding festivities in June 2020, and then the global Covid-19 pandemic hit. While many couples opted to move their celebrations to 2021, Katharine + Zach decided to go forward with a smaller event for 2020, and then have a vow-renewal and reception on their first anniversary in 2021. So their big day in 2020 was a go!
Their beautiful June day was absolutely gorgeous. Friends and family gathered at Katharine’s mother’s house to prepare for the big event. Once they were ready, we headed over to Silverwood Park in St Anthony MN for the pre-wedding photos. We had a first look and portraits of the two of them, and then captured photos of their wedding party too. (Silverwood will be the site of their reception next year!)
Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church Wedding
After photos were complete, we headed over to the Holy Name of Jesus Church in Wayzata MN. First we captured family photos, and then came their wedding ceremony. While the guests in the church had to wear masks for the ceremony, Katharine + Zach were allowed to remove their masks for their first kiss!
Back Yard Wedding Reception
Once their ceremony was complete, we headed back over the Katharine’s mother’s house for a lovely back yard reception garden party. They kicked off the event with a sweet, heart-warming toast from Katharine’s mother. Then guests enjoyed themselves with lawn games and conversation. Kathariene + Zach were even treated to a wedding parade by other family members and friends wishing the newly weds well before they headed off to northern Minnesota for a week long camping trip.
Katharine + Zach, thank you so much for including me as your wedding photographer for your beautiful day. I am so happy for you both as you begin your new lives together!
