Emily & Ryan Married Fridley, MN

Emily & Ryan Married at Grace Lutheran Church in Fridley, Minnesota and held their wedding reception at the Banquets of Minnesota. I met up with the bride at the church where she was getting ready with her family and bridesmaids. From there we went onto nearby Manomin Park where the bride and groom had their first look! Below are just a few of my favorite highlight moments from their beautiful June summer wedding just outside Minneapolis, Minnesota.

It was windy by the lakefront but it was perfect for this photo where it billowed and highlighted the gorgeous back of the brides wedding dress train, and the beautiful puffy white clouds on that bright blue sky!

Banquets of Minnesota First Dance, Emily & Ryan Married

Another one from their first dance at the Banquets of Minnesota wedding reception venue. I love using a back light during first dances to give this halo effect. I think it’s a gorgeous touch to add some romance to a lovely moment between the newly weds.

I also had the pleasure of working with them to photograph their Minnehaha Falls Engagement Photography Session!
