Let it snow! This might be the last official snow post of the season as we wait for spring, and what a way to close it out with the fabulous Heather and quirky Rob. These two know how to laugh hard to together and that joy carried over to this session at Centennial Lakes Park. Temperatures didn’t scare us away as we skated and flirted out way from bridge to bridge, finishing with an Irish coffee at the bar afterwards. Brilliant.

Como Park Conservatory shut its doors for the night, but kept the garden light on for Dannette, Darren, and nine family members. They had planned an intimate ceremony for those closest to them in life, followed by a classy dinner at a haunted mansion in St. Paul. The fun loving couple started the day at their home in Morningside in Edina, with their first look outside of the St. Paul Hotel in Rice Park. Winter temperatures didn’t scare these two away from having the time of their lives. I also wanted to give a special shout out to Hana, of Mani Mela, for the impeccable style, flow, and swag of this celebration. I can’t wait for the party to come at Mill City Museum this spring!

Two that are fit perfectly together find each other in life. That is the case with Amy and Jordan, and you could feel the anticipation in the room on the day of their wedding. Family is extremely special to them, but you don’t have to know Amy long to realize she is a bit of her daddy’s girl. For being February in Minnesota, we traded out the snow for a balmy 50-degree day that felt much more like spring in April. Their crazy fun wedding party didn’t complain, as we were able to get some bonus time outside celebrating Amy and Jordan.  The ballroom was breathtaking, as Allie Markman teamed with Event Lab to pull out all the stops to bring it to life adorned in gold and white. From the bands first note to their last, everyone at the Hyatt gave it their all on the dance floor. I left impressed.
