Como Conservatory 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!

Family Weekend in Duluth

After stuffing ourselves silly on Thanksgiving, we took advantage of the long weekend and the warm weather and headed north to the Duluth Area with my family. We stayed in a camper cabin in Jay Cooke State Park. Hani enjoyed that the cabins were each named after a different type of rock found in the area #novanerd! We love camper cabins at this time of year, they are super cozy and affordable. All you have to bring is bedding and food!

The weekend was perfect! We played by the river in Jay Cooke, hiked for a bit, ate dinner in Duluth with Ari's parents and then visited Bentelyville.
