The University of Northwestern in St. Paul was the perfect setting for this fairytale wedding! Natalie and Keith’s day was filled with beauty, emotion, and one of the most epic snowfalls we have had the pleasure of capturing on a wedding day! When the couple chose a November wedding date, they weren’t quite sure what to expect for weather. Northwestern weddings are gorgeous no matter what the day brings, but Natalie secretly had her heart set on snow! Not only did it snow on her wedding day, but we were able to drive down to one of the couple’s favorite spots for a beautiful snowy photoshoot in the city following their ceremony.
The day began beautifully as Natalie’s sister helped her dress in her gorgeous gown from the Bridal Aisle Boutique. Everything down to the last detail coordinated perfectly and the lanterns that the bridesmaids carried were the perfect touch! The flowers by Aneta’s European Floral were stunning and completed the look of elegance of the day. Tim Torabpour from Square One Video Productions joined us as we photographed the wedding party separately and prepared for the bride and groom’s first look as Natalie walked down the aisle. The ceremony was filled with beautiful emotion and capturing the joy-filled tears was incredible.
The reception was amazing complete with a cake from the Cakery by Farmington Bakery and the events flowed seamlessly thanks to Lexi Starr and her team at University of Northwestern. Perhaps one of our favorite moments of the day, aside from the gorgeous backdrop of romantic, falling snow, was when Natalie surprised Keith with a song at the reception. The expression on Keith’s face as he began to realize that his sweet bride was singing her heart out for him was incredibly emotional and it was truly an honor to be able to capture this day!
