From the Photographer:

How did you meet?
Bob and I met through a mutual friend at a party 3 years ago. After our first date, we knew we were met for each other. After being together for 1 and 1/2 years, Bob proposed in Gold Medal Park in Downtown Minneapolis near the place we meet for the very first time. We both grew up in Minnesota and have a love for the city so i was very important that we got married in Minneapolis.

What made you chose your venue{s}?
The Church is my childhood church and I always have wanted to get married in that church. For our reception, McNamara Alumni Center was actually the first venue that we visited and we fell it love with it. We knew that is where we had to have our wedding reception.

What inspired your wedding day outfits?
The Bridemaids’ dresses were selected to match the color scheme of the wedding and the rest of the bridal party was selected to coordinate with the dresses. As for the wedding dress, I was not really sure what I wanted when I started shopping, but when I tried on my dress, I knew that was dress I was going to get married in.

What inspired your wedding decor?
The overall theme to our wedding was the city of Minneapolis, the city that we met and live in. Our Wedding color scheme was inspired by Peacock feathers. In addition, Bob and I are both big fans of craft beers and wanted to showcase some of the craft beer that Minneapolis has to offer. With that, we unveiled a taproom for our guests to hang out, play games, and enjoy great Minneapolis brewed beer!

What was your favorite part of the day?
The whole day was just an amazing experience and loved every part of it, we really don’t have a favor part of the day.
