Sara & Eric’s Wedding

May 19th, 2013

As we’ve mentioned in our blog post for their engagement photos, Sara & Eric first met each other when Sara was in middle school and Eric was in high-school. But it wasn’t a rosy start; their story almost sounds like a movie plot. They didn’t think too highly of each other, but as time progressed their interest in each other changed and they started dating when Eric went off to college. They’ve been dating ever since, and with the love & support of their families, they tied the knot.

It has been exciting getting to know them and be a part of their planning of their wedding day. It was hard not to be emotional with them over the celebration of their lives joining together. We truly felt a part of this celebration.

In typical Minnesota fashion, the weather went from sun to rain, then to snow. We were able to sneak the couple off to the Plumber House to take some photos before the rain started. We wrapped up formal photos at the church as the snow started to fall and guests began to arrive. The warm glow of ambient lighting cast a romantic feel over the ceremony and reception. The ceremony had it’s share of laughter, tears, and heart-felt moments, and the reception was quite the joyous occasion.

Some details about the day: Sara had her hair done at Hair Studio 52 and her makeup done by her good friend, Cindy. The flower arrangements were done by Flowers by Jerry. The reception was held at the Blue Moon Ballroom where they had wonderful staff and very friendly catering by Ye Old Butcher Shoppe.
