The wedding season has officially begun! I must say, I’m very excited, but at the same time, I am going to miss having some free time on my hands. 🙂
This was a great wedding to start out the season. Chad & Bridget were referred to me by a previous wedding client. What a wonderful couple to work with! They met 6 years ago when Bridget’s sister married Chad’s best friend, and they were paired up in the wedding party. Then over the fishing opener last year, they were engaged. Their ceremony was held at St. Catherine’s in St. Paul in their chapel. It is truly a beautiful & gorgeous church. Apparently, though, you can only get married there if you went to college at St. Catherine’s. Luckily for Bridget, she did graduate from St. Kate’s. They had a small guest list of only 100 people, but you could definitely feel the love and support from all of their family and friends. Here’s to a great start to the 2008 wedding season!
Chad on his way to see his bride for the first time
This little girl was so adorable, especially with the window light coming in through the church.
I love this shot of the boy looking out the huge door for guests. He was one of the helpers handing out programs for the wedding.
Like I said above… gorgeous!
Snagging a quick look at each other during the ceremony
This little boy was fascinated with my camera. So much so, that he started to giggle and laugh during the ceremony!
Grandma & Grandpa staring up at the couple during their vows.
They had to remove the microphone from the priest and put it on Chad for their vows. I couldn’t tell if this was an unexpected moment or if they just had technical difficulties removing the microphone. Either way, it was a comical moment in the ceremony!
Bridget getting slightly emotional during her vows
I love kids at a wedding 🙂
There was this beautiful stairway going down to the bride’s room downstairs. We were able to get some pretty amazing shots with the window light here.
Their reception was held at the Summit Manor House in St. Paul.
She wanted a shot with her grandmother, but this was taken in-between shots. I love it!!!
I think this little boy was trying to smell the cakes. Whatever he was doing, I definitely caught him in the act. The fact that there is a fork in his hand makes this shot even better 🙂
I’ve seen this speech at least a dozen times at weddings. The person making the speech tells the groom to put his hand over his bride’s hand. Then, the person says, “Now, this is the last time that you will have the upper hand.” Hilarious, huh?!
Congrats, Chad & Bridget on a beautiful day!
