Samantha and Aaron – A’Bulae
Samantha (Sam) and Aaron – are two of the nicest people… and thanks to Rachelle with Style Architects the details of this wedding were a dream to photograph! The ceremony was at St. Joseph’s in St. Paul (who I want to give a special shout out because they are so nice there!), with reception at A’Bulae. Prepare yourselves for a mega blog post. I had a difficult time limiting the photos I wanted to post. Enjoy! :)
My amazing 2nd photographer took these portraits of Aaron. Lookin’ good Aaron!
The photos of Sam getting ready with her little pup nearby are the cutest! :)
Before the first look with Aaron, Sam had a “first look” with her dad. So sweet!
Time to explain the photo above: Aaron plays hockey, so I asked if any other other guys are hockey people. They are, so I joked that “it’s taking everything in me to not make you do the flying V right now.” To which they responded “yeah, let’s do it!” So we did the flying V while I yelled “Emilio, Emilio!” #lifegoalcomplete
This setting was perfection for the styling and color palette of this wedding!
Yeah, a lot of pics of Sam. Sorry I couldn’t help myself… she was such a stunning bride and I couldn’t make up my mind on which pics to post!
Loved the styling of the cocktail hour patio.
Details, details, details!
One of my favorite things about these first dance photos are the family and loved ones behind Sam and Aaron.
This style of reception mixed dancing and dinner – never a dull moment!
The timeline allowed us to go out for sunset photos, which we don’t always have the opportunity to do. Gorgeous lighting, veil, and couple. Nailed it!
A huge thank you to my friend and talented photographer Katie Thering for being such an amazing 2nd photographer!
Bravo, to a fantastic dream team of vendors!
