Ryan and Liz have a passion for architecture, clean design, and modern minimalist aesthetics. So I was over the moon when they not only hired us to capture their day, they gave us free creative reign, told us to go out of the box, hired some of our favorite vendors, AND chose two gorgeous venues for their wedding day. Seriously, dream come true!
Liz chose a luxurious textured Wedding Shoppe gown that had subtle pink undertones. Lots of sparkly details and of course purple shoes completed her ensemble. Arrangements designed by Violet’s Flowers emphasized the purple color scheme and Liz’s bouquet had these HUGE beautiful orchids in it…I had never seen them before. They were so lovely!
Le Meridien Chambers was chosen for the reception because of the gorgeous interior design and clean lines, and we gladly featured the hotel prominently in the images.
At the Bigelow Chapel, things were gearing up for the ceremony, and we once again took advantage of architectural perfection with our portraits. We placed the main focus on clean lines and dramatic posing.
I love this shot, it features Liz’s killer Badgley Mischka shoes, and also has Ryan in the background!
The ceremony included sweet touches, like a hand ceremony and stories about how the couple met and fell in love.
Ryan and Liz planned the ceremony time so things would be wrapping up as night fell, which gave us this most amazing sky color and the moon even cooperated!
Back at Chambers, the reception was set up with gray linens, amber up lighting, purple clustered centerpieces and beautiful paper designs by Dick and Jane Letterpress featuring the motif used in the hotel’s lobby.
D’Amico pulled out all the stops with their delicious food that looked as good as it tasted! Then Instant Request started the dance and guests mingled in the beautiful space and enjoyed watching the crazy Halloween costumes walking around below on Hennepin Ave.
Ryan and Liz, it was truly a pleasure getting to work with you! We hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
