Ok, so we were a little biased toward loving Melissa and Erik’s wedding from the get go. I mean, we absolutely loved hanging them at their engagement session, we shot Melissa’s brother’s wedding so we saw some old familiar faces, aaaand we could walk from our studio to their venue. It was so fun shooting in a place that we walk and marvel at everyday (Minneapolis Event Centers – The Grand 1858). Oh, and I have to give props to both “Melissas” (both bride and planner) for putting together a beautiful day, and a perfect timeline. Melissa even thought ahead with the footwear and brought a gorgeous pair of bejeweled white sneakers. (And just a PSA for others: don’t expect to wear heels all day unless you do it all the time. And even if you wear heels daily, if you’re going to take pictures at St. Anthony Main, bring dem flats! Cobblestone and grass, y’all.)

Oh, and since I’m giving well deserved props, well done to all the toast-givers and Melissa and Erik’s officiant, who did a great job with some off the cuff jokes, while still leading a beautiful meaningful ceremony. It was an all-out gorgeous day and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Melissa and Erik, congratulations!
