Mount Zion Temple Wedding Photography | Elizabeth and Ben

Elizabeth and Ben tied the knot in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at Mount Zion Temple in St. Paul! Their wedding day was filled with quirky little details like rosemary tucked into the floral arrangements (which is totally fitting as the two met after being paired up as a team by mutual friends to compete in a cooking contest) and unique socks match perfectly to the personalities of each member of the bridal party. And, not only did Elizabeth wear her mother’s wedding gown, but Ben also wore his father’s wedding suit! It suited them perfectly!

Here’s a collection of some of my favorite images from their very special day!

Como Conservatory St. Paul Wedding Photography | Christine and Tony

" I didn't know that love could be like this" is what Tony's best man quoted from Tony about his love for Christine. These two are so sweet and the so deserve each other!

Christine and Tony said "I Do" during a cozy evening ceremony in the Sunken Garden at Como Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota! The day was super chilly, but we still went all over the grounds at Como capturing the two of them and their wedding party and their excitement for their wedding day! 

Here are a few of my favorite images from Christine and Tony's special day!

Loring Green Wedding Photography | Jennifer and Michael

Jennifer and Michael met when they were kids on vacation at Cedar Rapids Lodge in Bemidji, MN. Each summer, both of their families continued to vacation there and the two gravitated towards each other. Earlier this month, Jennifer and Michael finally tied the knot at an intimate family gathering in the Fireside room in the Loring Green building in downtown, Minneapolis.  

Cedar Rapids Lodge seemed to tie everyone together that evening as both families have attended the resort for generations and also our family has started a tradition of going there every summer which is what connected us to Jennifer and Michael! Thanks to the folks at Cedar Rapids Lodge for connecting us!

Here are a few of my favorite shots that tell the story of Jennifer and Michael's special day!
