Time definitely flies when you are having fun! It’s hard to believe it was just this past spring that we met Kirsten and Brian along the shores of Florida’s Manasota Key Beach for their destination engagement session. We had such a great time together that evening, and we knew their wedding would be amazing! Their big day had finally arrived, and the Earl and Wilson Event Center in St. Paul was the perfect place to host their family and friends.
Rebecca of RLwed did a fabulous job of coordinating the day, and the morning began as the ladies prepared with Bella B Salon and Maggie J Makeup. We photographed details, and Kirsten was giddy with excitement to see her groom! She and Brian shared a first look alongside the historic venue’s original 1880 billboard signage, and we captured a few portraits there before heading outside. These two had met at a mutual friend’s wedding, and it was such a joy to document their love for each other on their own special day! They were up for anything, and didn’t mind the brisk weather one bit as we explored the streets of St. Paul. We returned for wedding party and family photos just before guests began to arrive.
Cocktail hour in the 1880 Room followed the sweet ceremony, and guests gathered in the 1900 Room for the reception. The space looked incredible with gorgeous florals by Blossom Studio. Everyone enjoyed dinner by Deco Catering, speeches, desserts from Lunds & Byerlys, and dancing with Infinity Sounds MN to end the night. We can’t wait to see the fun that Snowshoe Productions captured on video! Kirsten and Brian, we hope that Punta Cana was amazing, and that you have the best time on your trip to Japan this coming winter! Cheers to you both as you begin your newest adventure as newlyweds!
