Emily & Mike

Emily and Mike’s wedding unfolded on a beautiful Saturday in Minneapolis. Emily has an incredible eye for detail and filled the day with personal touches: everything from homemade wooden signs to a handkerchief made from both her grandmothers wedding dresses. Autumn vintage style emanated out of everything from flowers to reception venue and added immense charm to the experience. Emily and Mike’s ceremony was at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, where Emily attended school, and their reception was held at the fantastic Nicollet Island Pavilion.

The pair was a blast to photograph because they have great senses of humor and chemistry. We captured a number of stellar portraits on the banks of the Mississippi between the ceremony and reception. We also need to give a shout out to the super cool wedding party (their lovely blurs featured below)! The dance floor was HOPPIN with energy and guests were given a show when Mike was iced by Emily as he went for her garter during the garter toss (it was epic)! At 10pm a gelato cart appeared next to the dance floor and guests were treated with Emily’s favorite snack from her semester in Italy. We snuck out back with the couple for one last skyline portrait (below) at the end of the night.
