Before we headed to the beautiful Holy Spirit Church in St Paul, the bridal party finished their prep at the brides mothers house nearby.
The entourage was so happy for the bride and groom and the excitement in the air was contagious.
The groom and groomsmen were already at the church patiently waiting for the day to begin.
Since the bride and groom were not to see each other until the ceremony, we took advantage of time with the bridal party separately outside of the church early in the day.
After shooting the guys, they tucked back inside the church so the girls could take their turn. The bride was blessed with 3 sisters who were always there to help.
The ceremony was as beautiful as the Holy Spirit Church we were in.
After “I Do” the bridal party headed off to Plums local pub. Usually at this time I capture candid moments at the cocktail hour, but there was much fun to be had at the pub, I tagged along.
The limo ride was wild and worth a mention
Upon arrival at Saint Catherine University we captured portraits outside by the pond before the grand entrance. The loosy-goosy bridal party continued the fun in great spirits.
The backside of the bridesmaid dresses were lovely and needed a photo of their own.
After some fun with the bridal party, there were dismissed to catch the end of cocktail hour. The bride and groom gave me their time to get imitate portraits around the beautiful pond.
As we walked back across the bridge, we were joined by a flock of ducks. Ducks mate for life so it was sentimental to have “love birds” join us for the portrait time.
Back at the reception, the couple cut their delicious cake. It really was delicious. I had a piece. I always have a piece.
Fuchsia up-lighting illuminated the dance floor.
The wild and fun bridal party continued their crazy party on the dance floor.
