MEC, The Grand 1858 | Summer Wedding

Every single detail of Kate and David’s wedding was perfect!  They are such a sweet couple and we were so honored to be a part of the amazing team of vendors who made the day incredible!  We began at the Depot, Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel.  The girls hair and makeup by Primped and EKB Beauty looked amazing and we captured them in their matching robes just before heading over to the Minneapolis Event Centers.  Kate’s dress from Finery Bridal by Laine Berry was absolutely stunning and we loved capturing the joy of her bridesmaids seeing her for the first time and the tears as Kate read her letter from David.  We joined David as he read Kate’s letter just before heading out for their first look. 

Every moment of the day was well planned and coordinated by Ashton Boon who kept the day running smoothly!  The ceremony was at the beautiful Saint Agnes Church and we had the best time capturing the entire group of guests on the front steps alongside the talented Jay-J and Josie from Harvest Films.  They are amazing and we can’t wait to see the fun they captured!  We headed out for portraits with the wedding party and Total Transportation and began at Irvine Park in St. Paul.  We loved the men’s tuxes and the rich green color of the ladies gowns from Mestads Bridal & Formalwear, and the florals by EDG Productions were stunning!  We ended portraits by jumping right into the craziness of the Stone Arch Bridge Festival!

We joined the reception as the Brian Kinney Band serenaded guests with jazz during cocktail hour.  Melissa Zenk and her team at the MEC, the Grand 1858 did an amazing job of ensuring every detail was beautiful. Guests enjoyed dinner, speeches, and dancing along with photos with MN Photo Booth.  We ended the evening celebrating with sparklers with all of Kate and David’s friends and family!  It was the perfect end to the perfect day!
