From the moment we met Becky & Bryan, we absolutely adored them.  Listening to their love story, all the trials they had been through, and how they found unconditional and lasting love with one another touched our hearts in such a deep way.  We were truly honored to be chosen to capture this beautiful couple, their wedding day, and their deeply moving love for one another.  

The day started at the iconic St. Paul Hotel, in the L’etoile Room, where Becky chose to get ready! This room is not only a Bride's dream, but a photography haven of gorgeous lighting, with it's chandeliers, and timeless decor.

Becky's wedding dress had a simple, yet vibrant and colorful elegance that transcended traditional gowns.  It fit perfectly with the Botanical garden ceremony, which was about to take place.

And who could resist the adorable charms of Becky's daughter, and Flower Girl, who absolutely LOVED the camera, while wearing her white satin "flower girl" embossed robe.

Every detail was thoughtful, and Bryan's getting ready room at the St. Paul hotel was stunning, as well as his custom made suit from Heimie's Haberdashery, black Damascus Steel ring from ShaneCo., and custom cufflinks

Becky + Bryan chose to have a First Look before the ceremony, which allowed us extra time for beautiful downtown St. Paul Bridal portraits. Spring was in full bloom, and so was their love for one another.

Then it was time to make our way to the Como Park Observatory for formal family photos.  Even though it was raining outside, the weather didn't dampen their spirits, and it was a joyous time with family, making forever memories together, which mattered most!
