What a way to end the 2018 wedding season! Katie and Amanda filled my heart with their late fall wedding at Solar Arts by Chowgirls.

There was a fresh coat of snow on the ground and the sun was shining bright the morning of the big day. Katie got ready at the Lowes Hotel while Amanda got ready at the Solar Arts building. Their first look surprised them both when their wedding dresses were revealed to one another. In the first few moments of taking photos, Katie was so in awe of Amanda’s dress that she stopped posing to look at the details again. Their floral was done by their amazingly talented friend, Kyle of Ginger Root MPLS. Katie’s wedding party had bouquets and Amanda’s side had a floral ring to stand out between the two sides. It was a beautiful touch that was added into their wedding aesthetic.

The couple had roots in the Saint Anthony Main area where they first lived together. The sun went behind the clouds and a slight snow fall came through as we took photos on the Stone Arch Bridge. When everyone was back at Solar Arts in preparation for the ceremony, Katie and Amanda shared personal vows. Moments before their ceremony they played rock paper scissors. Even though Katie won that game they both were winners by the end of the ceremony. Their reception was filled with stories shared about the couple and dinner by Chowgirls. They had their first dance to Yellow by Cold Play and had their dad’s meet them on the floor for a shared father daughter dance. Everyone joined them with their best moves on the dance floor to celebrate the couple.

Cheers to Katie and Amanda and all that the future holds for them both!
