Summer weddings are in full swing, and we are loving every minute of these sun-soaked wedding days! Emily and Jake’s big day began at the Double Tree Hotel in downtown Saint Paul. The ladies were finishing up hair and makeup with the talented Primped and Anna Joy Makeup and had a blast laughing and chatting together as they prepared for the day. They wore matching pjs and personalized socks that we absolutely loved! Emily’s breathtaking ring and details were the picture of sophisticated elegance, and we knew we were in for a beautiful day ahead!
Emily’s mom helped her into her Maggie Sottero gown from the Wedding Shoppe, and she shared a sweet first look with her father before seeing her groom just outside the Church of the Assumption in St. Paul. Jake was all smiles as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time holding her gorgeous bouquet by Rustic Floral Boutique. We had the best time taking photos together throughout the grounds. Their not-so-small puppy even joined us for a few photos and stole the show with his charm and personality!
Emily and Jake have the sweetest friends and families and it was so much fun to celebrate with everyone! Following a beautiful ceremony, guests gathered on the church’s epic staircase for a giant group photo. Before heading to the Lowertown Event Center for the reception, we made a quick stop at Irvine Park for a few photos. Guests enjoyed some incredible speeches filled with laughter and tears, as well as dinner by Kane’s Catering and desserts from the Thirsty Whale Bakery. The evening ended with dancing hosted by Instant Request. Emily and Jake, we are so happy for you, and loved being a part of your wedding day! We hope Maui, Hawaii was the perfect place to celebrate and kick off life as newlyweds!
