Rick and Lindsey were married today!
Wow, I had to really sit back and process this wedding. Wow, just wow. The day started with all the ladies getting dolled up by Brett Dorrian Artistry Studios. After a sweet first sight, we hopped in the limo and joined what seemed like the entire city of Minneapolis enjoying the outdoors. I don’t know how they did it, but after a huge April snowstorm and record low temperatures, Rick and Lindsey managed to have perfect spring weather today!
How many groomsmen does it take to help a brave bride in heels climb over rubble?
Was it worth it? Oh HECK yes!
After our Minneapolis pictures, it was time to head back to the beautiful Van Dusen Mansion for the ceremony.
Rick and Lindsey love music, and they incorporated it in every way they could during the ceremony. The couple had St. Anthony Brass play a variety of songs and Lindsey and Rick performed with each other for their unity ceremony.
These two have such a great eye for design, and they applied it to every facet of their day. They paired their vibrant grey and yellow color scheme with bold graphic design, and incorporated the Minneapolis skyline throughout.
The mansion opened up their doors and cocktail hour spilled out onto the front steps. Guests enjoyed specialty drinks as well as delicious butler passed hors d’oeuvres from Mintahoe Catering.
We even managed to find a little bit of snow left in the garden for a ring shot =)
In the dining room, guests chatted and ate…little did they know the evening that was in store…
…a flash mob singing a song about the couple (complete with saxophone solo)…
…AND the U of M marching band performance! It was amazing!
In the carriage house, Midwest Sound played tunes for the two floors of guests as they danced, played in the Traveling Photo Booth, and filled out wedding ad libs and advice for the couple.
What a fantastic night!
Rick and Lindsey, thank you SO MUCH for having us be a part of your day. It was truly an honor! Enjoy your sneak peek!
