The Earl and Wilson Event Center in St. Paul was the perfect venue for Serena and Sean’s winter wedding day. Every detail was stunning and the day was filled with countless emotional moments. Amber from CHARISMA weddings + events was amazing to work with and ensured the day ran smoothly from start to finish. We began in the bridal suite and the ladies looked beautiful with their hair done by Bryce Jermain Salon and makeup by Lindsay Dukes Artistry. Serena looked stunning in her Atelier Pronovias gown from the White Room and the first tears of the day began as her mom presented her with a beautiful ring. We took a few portraits with Serena’s gorgeous bouquet by Main Floral before heading over to join the men. Sean’s mother also presented him with a gift before pinning on his boutonniere. Excitement was running high in anticipation of Sean seeing his beautiful bride!
The first look is one of our all-time favorite moments on a wedding day and Serena and Sean’s was absolutely breathtaking! Sean was overcome and sweetly whispered “you look so beautiful” over and over again as their tears began to flow. It was an incredible honor to be able to capture that moment for them. Shortly after, we transitioned into portrait time with the wedding party and family before heading to St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Anoka for the ceremony. The wedding party was so much fun and looked amazing in their dresses from Bella Bridesmaids and the men in their tuxes from the Foursome. Following the beautiful ceremony, the wedding party headed out to celebrate with Rent My Party Bus before heading back for the reception.
Earl and Wilson’s reception space looked amazing from the decor by Linen Effects and By Invitation Only to the beautiful cake by The Buttered Tin! Dinner by Chowgirls was amazing and Josh and Jeff from Harmony DJ Entertainment ended the evening with an epic dance party complete with glow sticks. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day and we were so honored to be a part of it!
