NADINE + RYAN | ARIA WEDDING
The hustle and bustle of a New Year! It’s everyone’s time for reflection of what was and of what may be. The weddings of my clients during 2016 were so fun to anticipate and prepare for;
it’s hard to believe many months have already gone by and my couples are making memories as new couples.
Their first memories of many to come….
With their wedding day beginning at the highly rated Loews Hotel, Nadine and Ryan were preparing for their big day in style. A great way to gather the wedding party into one large area, Loews has suites that have exceptionally large windows. Magnificent bright sunshine was perfect for makeup artists and hair stylists to work on the wedding party.
The morning was spent laughing, conversing and getting ready as one big group.
After every detail was completed from head to toe, the wedding party headed to Saint Mary’s Basilica to witness the nuptials. A beautiful structure in and of itself, the steps of the church became filled with primped guests congratulating the newly joined couple.
A Venue Bucket List has been in production for me; and, with great fortune one of my favorite venues was chosen by Nadine and Ryan for their celebration. Aria on First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis is a unique venue with exposed brick, very high ceilings and inviting areas within the venue that enhances the custom wedding experience. Portraits were easy to take in the expanse areas of Aria. Capturing the crowd during the cocktail hour with breathtaking chandeliers;
family photos with beautiful backdrops; and the dining area was exquisite. Nadine and Ryan supplied a shuttle bus from the hotel and venue and kept all out-of-town guests safe and secure.
May your wedding memories I captured in pictures stay as beautiful as the day they were taken.
