Brian + Alena : Minneapolis Wedding Photography

Talk about starting the 2012 wedding season off with a bang! Brian + Alena tied the knot in early June and it couldn't have been a more lovely day if they tried. I started the day off at Alena's parents' home, the air filled with laughter, hairspray and lots of love.

The day wasn't just about the dress or the shoes or the rings or the flowers or the favors - it was about beginning a journey together. A marriage based in Christ and his love for us. These two have amazing families that will support them on their journey too - families who included me in this day as one of their own, a blessing I promise to never take for granted.

Favorite moments? The list is endless! But if I had to name a few: bridesmaid chatter in the basement' the first look - it's certain there wasn't a dry eye on that bridge; the God Squad reunion and of course, the toasts and speeches at the reception - Brian's grandmother told an endearing story, as did his dad, that left me tearing up on the side of the room! I loved being a witness to these moments and so many more.

Brian + Alena, along with their families, made certain their wedding day was focused on people rather than the details. I am so honored to have been chosen to document this day for them - happy marriage, you two!
