This summer I had the opportunity to photograph Dana & Noah’s ARIA Minneapolis wedding, and it was an absolute dream. Having planned their entire wedding while living in London, they tied the knot only weeks after returning home to Minneapolis. These two were so excited to marry each other – and it showed!
Dana and Noah’s first look took place in their own backyard overlooking the Minneapolis skyline. They read personal vows to each other, and then we headed for portraits at some iconic downtown locations. They actually met years ago in San Francisco, and made a point to include aspects of their international love story throughout the day. Dana and Noah are so clearly in love – photographing them was a breeze 🙂
A friend officiated their multi-faith ceremony and it was the perfect, personal touch. ARIA is one of the most unique venues I’ve ever photographed, but more importantly, the vendors did such an incredible job! From the live band to the caterer to the stunning floral installation, the day couldn’t have been more beautiful. Shout out to Jeremy for 2nd shooting this with me and capturing some of my favorite shots of the day!
Dana and Noah: Thank you again for having me! I had a blast exploring Minneapolis and being part of this day. CONGRATS to you both!!
