Happy Thursday all!!! The weather in MN/WI has been amazing over the past week – a girl could get used to mid 60′s to 70′s in March! There’s always a possibility of snow in June, so I’m taking the sunshine with a grain of salt, and ironically, it’s given me a little time and motivation to post some extremely overdue sessions. Win Win! Lots of fun, and possibly out of season sessions to come in the next few weeks!
Analisa and Brandon contacted me in mid December regarding their wedding with a caveat that they’d be in town the next week for a crazy whirlwind Christmas trip that consisted of crossing MN/WI border at least 4 times to fit in visits with family and friends and wanted to schedule an engagement session. I was so happy to be able to work something out during border crossing number 2(?) - and end up with an amazing winter day to boot! Proof that engagement sessions don’t always have to be scheduled during the warm months – all you need is a little love… and maybe a sister that doubles as a coat holder. Never hurts, anyhow. :)
One more sneak peek before I get full posts up from my last two sessions – Meet baby Jonah!
They met over pink shoes… just goes to show that you never know who’s paying attention!
Jennae and Elliot are one of the most genuinely kind and happy couples I’ve ever met. Watching them the day of their wedding, I was in awe of the love they have for each other, they are truly soul mates, they just fit… like a pair of pink shoes.
We met at Jennae and Elliot’s ridiculously cute home for a few detail shots and a quick first look, then headed to the St. Paul capital grounds for formal shots before the ceremony. Let me tell you, I fell 100% in love with Jennae’s dress, it was gorgeous! The wedding party offset her dress perfectly, the maids in short blush pink mismatched styles and the men in chocolate brown tuxes. The overall look was absolutely stunning.
The ceremony took place at Unity Unitarian Church in St. Paul where the original dark wood beams and modern waved wood backdrop wall continued the romantic theme perfectly.
After a quick jaunt through downtown St. Paul, we continued on to the new Gopher Stadium for the reception – what an amazing venue! One of the perks to having a party at TCF Bank Stadium is full access to the field! Jennae and Elliot’s wedding party took full advantage and played an impromptu bridesmaids against groomsmen football while the guests watched from the stands above.
Full fledged sprints in formal wedding garb… best wedding party EVER!
