Megan and Dan are married! We had the pleasure of first meeting the lovely couple late last year just as fall was coming to a close for their engagement session up in Duluth MN. We had a great time exploring Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls Park, the scenery was so gorgeous we completely lost track of time but at the end we had some really amazing photographs that you should definitely check out if you’re not familiar with the area. Duluth is incredible, if you’ve never made the trip do it. And check out 1. The Duluth Grill 2. Betty’s Pies for a pie stuffed milkshake 3. Grandma’s Marathon
Back to their big day!! We met up with Megan and her bridesmaids at the striking Radisson Blu Hotel in downtown Minneapolis for getting ready photos just as the final touches to make up and hair were being locked down. We absolutely love the moments just as a bride is pulling her dress on and the bridesmaids and mother of the bride all crowd around helping with shoes and jewelry, it always feels like such a wonderfully calm little moment before the craziness of a wedding day takes over. With everyone all ready to go we made our way over to Loring Social, their gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception venue, just in time for a first look with Dan. We constantly feel so lucky to get to watch all these amazing moments unfold right in front of us, and doing our best to capture exactly what it felt like to be there in that moment is our favorite thing in the world! After the first look we made sure to use all the incredible brick alleyways and the historic Loring Park for the backdrop to some portraits you’re going to love! Next it was time to head back inside for a little cool down before the ceremony.
It was standing room only at the ceremony and we love seeing a packed house for those I do’s!! The room was then transformed into a reception hall with rapid efficiency whilst the guests milled about in the modern cocktail lounge. The meal, catered by D’Amico Catering was fantastic and the little desserts that followed were to die for!! After all the speeches and toasts, space was made for a dance floor. We got to use these few moments to sneak away with Megan and Dan for a few night portraits, We’re so proud of how they turned out!! The cityscape looks amazing!! We had so much fun getting to spend time with Megan and Dan, they were so laid back and easy to pose, they practically did all our work for usWe just want to wish them all the best and we pray some day in the not so distant future we get to share a pint with them at Mulligan’s Pub!
