Christa and Johnny were married in the most intimate ceremony at the lovely Good Shepard Church of Golden Valley. She wore the most beautiful cross neckless gifted from her grandmother. It hung softly around her neck and it was a memorable moment as she told her in person as she arrived!
Unless you're 100% against it, I always encourage my couples to take advantage of a "first look." It's a surreal and romantic opportunity to see each other before the dynamics of a wedding day. These two took my advice and were able to exchange the sweetest kisses, looks, and gifts. Christa was so excited to kiss her groom - she left a little evidence behind! :)
After the ceremony and on our way to dinner, we stopped by Theo Wirth Park for their couple photos. The park is absolutely perfect at sunset and allowed us to really focus on the two of them in such a beautiful sun kissed setting. Check out the balcony and their amazing dance moves below!
Immediately following, we met their closest friends and family at Jax Cafe in NE Minneapolis where everyone enjoyed an evening filled with hour d'oeuvres, drinks and merriment!
Congratulations! Your wedding day was amazing and I'm equally excited to photograph your upcoming reception in August!
