Laura & Matt | James J. Hill Library Wedding

It is always an honor as a photographer, when you get to work with families more than once. It was a few years ago at her sister Kathryn’s wedding that I first met Laura and her relatively new boyfriend, Matt. Fast forward a few years, and it was time for Laura & Matt’s own wedding. These two drove up from Omaha earlier in the summer to do some wedding planning and their engagement session with me. We had such a great morning together and I knew their wedding was going to be just as fun!

Laura and Matt did a first look with each other at a park, and it was so sweet to see Matt wiping a few tears away as he looked at his beautiful bride. These two are just fun to watch interact and that’s where the real magic of the photos happened. Following their church ceremony, the reception was held at James J. Hill Library in St. Paul. This is a favorite venue of ours in St. Paul because of the grand architecture and unique library lined walls. Laura’s dress was so classic, fitting her personality and the vibe of their wedding to perfection. With gorgeous flowers by Fleur de Lis, live music by Phil Thompson (you just cannot beat live music!), and the perfect sunset to round out the evening, it was a gorgeous day from start to finsih. It was effortlessly elegant and a true reflection of Laura & Matt’s personalities.
