My photographer, Melissa Hesse, took so many spectacular photos on my wedding day! At 9 a.m. she arrived at the Embassy Suites in St. Paul where my wedding party and I were getting ready. Then she went to Mike Sund’s house (Mike was one of Kyle’s groomsmen) to get photos of the guys getting ready.
After Kyle and I were both ready, it was time for the First Look. I had never heard of such a thing until Melissa told me about it. Apparently when couples take photos do photos before the wedding (rather than waiting to see each other for the first time when the bride walks down the aisle) they do a “First Look” to capture the moment when the bride and groom see each other on their wedding day for the first time.
Then we took lots and lots of family photos. Check ’em out!
Oofta! That was a lot of pictures. Now some ceremony photos: Party time!Our reception was at the Wabasha Street Caves in St. Paul! A lady gangster gave tours of the caves, our friends and family gave the best toasts ever and the dance was THRILLING!
