Molly and Patrick had an absolutely fantastic day. As I am photographing a wedding, I always try to wrap my head around that couple’s story and find some common theme throughout. For Molly and Patrick, I felt that the theme of their day was all about embracing the elements of surprise. When this couple first booked me for their wedding photography, everything was scheduled to be different. A different day, and different venue and an entirely different time-of-the-year. Life had other things in mind and a few months ago, Molly and Patrick found out they were expecting! With all of the excitement building for the wedding, the couple decided to switch it up and they changed course. A new date was set, the new venue was booked and everyone in their wedding came together to embrace the new direction of the day! Their wedding took place at Aria in Minneapolis and many more surprises happened throughout their day. Molly and her Father danced one of the best first dances I have ever seen. It was SO SO SO fun to watch their energy on the dance floor, especially after her father had just noted in his speech that dancing with his daughter in the kitchen was one of his favorite memories. At the end of the night, the wedding party – and all of the guests – surprised Molly and Patrick with a performance of The Lumineer’s Ho Hey song that stole the night!
In putting together this blog post, I realized a couple of things. First, Molly and Patrick are a wildly gorgeous couple. Secondly, their wedding is incredibly publish-worthy, so I’m going to keep some of it under-wraps until we submit it. Joan from Ambiente Wedding & Event Planning, along with the team at Arts & Flowers Design Studio transformed the space into an enchanting scene. But most importantly, there were such great moments that in the images even surprised myself when I go back and look at everything! It is some of these special moments that I chose for this post. It was an absolutely romantic wedding that stole my heart and I hope it does you, too!
Congratulations to Molly and Patrick on your absolutely STUNNING wedding! We are so happy to have been a part of your day and are even more excited for all of the happy moments for your future!
