St. Thomas More + Harriet Island Pavilion – Kelly & Casey’s Wedding

You might remember Kelly and Casey from their St. Paul engagement shoot last spring. They are such a fun couple! After hearing all the details Kelly had been working on all year, I was so excited to photograph their wedding. It was a beautiful fall day, full of fun that included a Twin Cities Trolley, a Photo Booth, a band called Orange Whip, and the biggest wedding party I’ve ever photographed!

Kelly and Casey are HUGE Wisconsin Badger fans – so big, in fact, they had a Wisconsin “W” ice sculpture, and a 10 foot blow-up Wisconsin Badger at the dance! Also, did you see their cake toppers!? So cute and a nod to their Alma mater.

The centerpieces by Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry were so pretty – I loved the different textures and colors. Friends and family helped with many of the other design elements at the reception, for example, a family friend helped with the place cards by wrapping twine and unique buttons around each envelope. Kelly and Casey came up with all the table markers, which had a special meaning to the them. Inside each guests’ place card contained a more detailed story of the significance of their table marker. Burlap was used throughout the wedding – from Kelly’s bouquet, to table runners, garland, bows, and the place card boards. The front table garland was made by a family friend, and the place card boards were made by the bride and groom. A lot of planning and work goes into a wedding and I thought everything looked great!

Jake was my 2nd shooter for the day and some of his images are shared below – thanks Jake! Congratulations Kelly and Casey, it was a pleasure!
