PAIKKA | Spring Wedding

Sara and Brad are the sweetest couple, and we remember meeting for their spring engagement session as if it were yesterday.  We had the best time exploring Minneapolis together, and couldn’t wait to spend their wedding day with them at the fabulous PAIKKA in St. PaulKrista of de Vasco’s Daughters was phenomenal to work with, and ensured every single detail was absolute perfection!

Their day literally could not have been more perfect – every moment was simply breathtaking!  The morning began with the talented Cristina Ziemer on hair and makeup.  The ladies toasted to the day, and we kicked things off with a few photos in their matching robes.  Sara’s mom helped her into her stunning gown from Annika Bridal, and she exchanged sweet first looks with her bridesmaids followed by her father.  Sara and Brad were giddy with excitement to see each other, and their first look was absolutely amazing!  Their love for each other is just beautiful, and they, and their family and friends, made the day so much fun!  We began portraits throughout PAIKKA’s gorgeous space before joining the wedding party and their adorable puppy outdoors.

The ceremony began, and Leanne Larson of Paint My Wedding Day captured its beauty perfectly.  Krista and her team created pure magic in the reception space, and Ergo Floral provided the gorgeous florals throughout the day. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour before heading in for dinner, speeches, and dessert from The Copper Hen.  The evening ended with golden hour photos and Alex of Instant Request DJ did a fantastic job of hosting the dance party.  Sara and Brad, we are beyond grateful to have been a part of your incredible wedding day!  You were a dream to serve, and we wish you all the very best in the many years to come!
