Aria Wedding | Minneapolis, MN | Morgan & John

Morgan and John are the sweetest! These cheery lovebirds smile through everything that comes their way and have a way of making everyone around them feel at ease. Even the coldest of Minnesota winter temperatures couldn't keep these two from beaming.

A few of my favorite memories from their wedding day: Their officiant was a family member, friend and first-timer at leading nuptials, and he had everyone in tears with his comical anecdotes-- he may have found his new calling. 

The wedding party was a great gang of friends and they stuck together as a group, joining the bride and groom in celebration all day long. You'll see them on the dance floor together in the video from Vaughter Weddings below. Love it!

Morgan & John let their love and their loved ones be the focus at this celebration. By focusing their decor on lighting, specifically candlelight, up-lights and cafe lights, the mood in the room was perfect for great conversation and celebration.

Aria Wedding | Lindsey & Andreas

I was so thrilled for the opportunity to work with Lindsey and Andreas this spring. They are a wonderful couple with a huge group of loving family and friends, converging from the U.S. and Sweden. Spending the day with them was a dream!

My traditional wedding selfie, of course.

The family had a handful of surprises planned for the Lindsey & Andreas throughout the evening, which were a blast to coordinate and see how much love and care this couple has surrounding them.

A surprise soccer team visit, a music set from Lindsey's dad, a glow stick toss, a DIY candy bar modeled after a market in Barcelona that L&A went to when they were first dating, a crazy awesome sparkler exit, and the day was made!
