Loved shooting this wedding. The groom is a friend of mine from high school, so getting to do photography for the wedding of him and his wonderful bride was great. Their wedding was at the Eagan Community Center on a day it rained. A LOT. We love shooting at their venue. We have shot there since and it is a wonderful place to work at.
They didn’t really let the rainy day bother them though, although the photos were supposed to be shot in a park. A friend let them use The Volstead House , a bar that very much mirrors a speakeasy. It actually made for more unique and beautiful images and was a great solution to the problem.
Another aspect to this wedding that we found really fun was Jessie’s love of Disney and fairy tales. She wore one of Alfred Angelo’s beautiful Disney wedding dresses (the Cinderella one) and carried red roses in her bouquet. The speeches from her father and best friend were both very much fairy tale based, to the point where I started crying during both of them, they were so amazing and emotional. While getting ready at their home, we were able to utilize a number of Disney, fairy tale, and Harry Potter details they have as regular decor.
I might also mention that they had the greatest desert spread I have ever seen at a wedding. EVER.
It was a wonderful day, regardless of the rain that did eventually subside. Thank you to the following vendors who made the day amazing!
