I shot my first Sunday wedding yesterday when I was the photographer for Mike & Erin’s wedding. I was only there for 4 hours, but I was still able to get lots of great pictures! They were married at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in West St. Paul, with their reception to follow at the St. Paul Hotel in Downtown St. Paul. Erin’s mom was married in the same church, which was very special for both Erin & her mom. It was a gorgeous church, however it was one of the darkest ones that I have worked with to date! Not only were all of the walls dark, but there were hardly any windows… and the only windows were stained glass. 🙂 Like I said, gorgeous, but a challenge photographing. We then headed over to Irvine Park after the ceremony for some fun shots of the bride & groom and bridal party. Enjoy the pictures!

I’ve never shot a wedding/reception at the St. Paul Hotel. Oh… my… gosh! That ballroom is gorgeous!! Even though I did not stay through dinner, I was able to get some cool shots of the room and centerpieces.
