When I first met Mandy, she seemed to radiate this joy and excitement when discussing the vision she had for their wedding… Being in the military, and stationed abroad at that time, Ethan wasn’t able to join for that coffee, but I got to learn lots about this awesome guy. Mandy could not wait for him to return home.
When Ethan did return home, we all met up in Minneapolis and adventured the streets shooting engagement photos. These two are legit… So genuine and amazingly fun! Made clear at their wedding, their friends are CRAZY about them. For such a large wedding, the whole vibe felt incredibly close-knit. After their gorgeous ceremony at the Lumber Exchange, this close group headed for a toast in a secret room at Pour House (coolest room ever) before joining their guests and setting off their reception. With guests happy to make the trip from as far away as France, we got to hear some incredibly heart-felt toasts to a couple that is so clearly loved by so many.
Loved every bit of the day and photographing this inspiring couple.
Special thanks to the Lumber Exchange for their amazing space, Erica Boe with Piece of Cake Wedding Planning, and Cory Kimball for his incredible talents as 2nd photographer this day.
