Looking back on all the weddings I’ve done this summer, most of my brides & grooms have been blessed with beautiful weather. The trend continued for Katrina & Brandon’s wedding this past Friday afternoon. They were married at the Semple Mansion in Minneapolis. Wow! What a beautiful site to have a wedding and to take pictures! The only thing that was tough about the place were all the stairs you had to climb. I guess I got my share of exercise in on Friday.
Katrina & Brandon originally met 4 years ago at the olympic training center in Colorado Springs while they were both training. Both of them wrestle competitively, so right off the bat they had something in common. Brandon wrestled at the U of MN, so his groomsmen were compiled of wrestlers from the U of MN and his brothers. It was quite funny when Brock Lesner walked in the door for their wedding. I don’t think many people were expecting a celebrity to show up!
Here are the highlights from their wedding day:
See what I’m talking about?? This picture says it all about the weather they had!
Katrina wanted a really antique-ish dress and found exactly what she was looking for. She looked stunning in it!
Definitely not one of my smaller wedding parties 🙂
The little carriage was originally designed for the 2-year-old flower girl, however she wasn’t up to the challenge of heading down the aisle. So, the older ring bearer pushed the younger one down in the carriage!
Their toasts were full of laughs!
This is something that I haven’t yet experienced. The groom bit the bride’s finger while she was feeding him cake. From the look on her face afterwards, he apparently bit it pretty hard. Notice the piece of cake dropping down from the groom. 😉
Bouquet toss… if you didn’t guess already.
I love this picture! Petals everywhere!
I think the biggest wrestler did indeed snag the garter 🙂
Thanks, Katrina & Brandon for the wonderful day! I hope you enjoy your honeymoon in Maui!!
