It’s really a special weekend when I can finish giving all I have to a friend group, crawling low or climbing high for the perfect angle, and then at the end of it all can sigh and say, “let’s do it again!” Gosh, that was fun. Sometimes on this wedding day I felt like I really wanted to be on the other side of the camera with the crew they had invited. Obviously, Aubree and Joe have a super special thing and all in plain view could see it and hear it from down the alley from Cafe Lurcat. Aubree is driven and sweet while Joe is a stand-up guy you just want to take home to meet your family. We all clicked instantly and enjoyed counting down the days when we could all hang and create art on their wedding day. Thanks to the planning prowess of See Jane Plan, all felt perfection and love throughout the day. Many small town Edina worlds collided at the reception and the toasts that followed the feast kept everyone on their toes. Music blasted down the alley until the wee hours as even this photographer had to hang around see how it all would end and see just how high the campaign would fly!

The Machine Shop was loading early in the morning as the massive industrial doors creaked open to allow the first wave of creative vendors in for set up. Meanwhile, Kira’s condo lounge was a buzz with ladies dancing, music blaring, and Kira’s eyes a-rolling at her crazy friends. It was the perfect kick-off as Max waited outside for his bride, with the ladies being given an aerial view of the moment. Friends from near and far showed up at the Hewing Hotel for a quick game of pool and fed off Max’s enthusiasm as this guy was simply “pumped” to get married to a girl as amazing as Kira. Her beauty on the outside matches her heart, and friends draw close to its deep, safe quarters. The Machine Shop‘s crew paired with Lasting Impressions to create a statement in the room for all guests to take in. I am so happy for these two new friends and then many more friendships that forged this night to remember!
