I am so thrilled to share Lauren and Zach’s gorgeous wedding at The St. Paul Hotel with you all.
I first met Lauren and Zach at their engagement session this summer. I knew right away that they are super fun and so adorable together. I could tell that they have a ton of fun with each other. Lauren and Zach’s wedding was my last wedding of 2015 and it did not disappoint.
When I walked into the bridal suite to say hello to Lauren, the room was filled with smiles, laughter, and friendship. Lauren was surrounded by her mother and her best friends. The energy was electric and full of excitement. When I saw Lauren’s wedding gown I fell in love with it! The way it fit her was perfection. The soft color palette of the bouquet’s and centerpieces by Studio Emme were absolutely breathtaking as well.
It is no secret that The St. Paul Hotel is breathtaking. From the grand chandeliers that adorn the ceilings, to the rich color palette of the decor. The opulent surrounds were so inspiring. The gorgeous Minnesota Autumn weather did not disappoint either. We held Lauren and Zach’s first look across the street at Rice Park. The lighting was amazing for their first look and bridal party photos. And how adorable are the flower girl and ring bearer?! The ring bearer was quite proud of his silly socks and was quite eager to show them to me.
Lauren and Zach were married inside the hotel while surrounded by family and friends. The love was so evident in the room.
After the wedding ceremony, we headed outside for some golden hour photos. This time we had to be creative about location. The downtown office buildings were blocking the sun, and the easiest way west was actually blocked off for construction. Luckily I had amazing clients that trusted my vision and followed me over a few blocks to capture some gorgeous golden goodness.
Lauren and Zach, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your love story. I have absolutely loved getting to know you and I can’t wait to see what your future holds.
