The Basilica of Saint Mary – Amy & George’s Wedding

Amy and George were married on a gorgeous day at The Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis. As you can see, everything about the Basilica is breathtaking! To be honest, I was a bit intimidated when I first stepped inside (luckily it was a month or so before the wedding and Amy was with me)! The Basilica is massive and I was definitely kept on my toes during the ceremony, heading to the choir balcony and walking (very very softly) to each side getting all the different angles. Amy looked beautiful in her dress and her bouquet by Sassafras Floral and Garden Design was so soft and pretty.

Amy and George are such a sweet couple – possibly just as sweet as their amazing dessert table! I was blown away with the attention to detail. They thought of everything from popcorn, to Peanut M&M’s, to Milano cookies! Yum! In addition to the table full of treats, each guest had an individually boxed cupcake from Wuollet’s waiting for them at their seat. The reception was in the Great Hall at Silverwood Park in St. Anthony. Such a beautiful spot, especially the outdoor area with the stone fireplace. Guests were able to enjoy the patio during the social hour and the fireplace made it feel very cozy.

Beautiful weather, gorgeous ceremony, delicious food and desserts, along with a great dance – a recipe for a wonderful wedding! Congratulations Amy and George!

    Anne, one of my favorite parts of your photography is how you capture the guests – the genuine smiles and beautiful moments make your albums whole! I only hope you’re not too famous by the time I’m ready to take the plunge!
