Allie and Dan | Solar Arts Wedding

Allie and Dan met, live and work in Washington, DC. But, they brought their wedding celebration back to Allie’s hometown of Minneapolis to celebrate the start of their married life together. They didn’t see each other before the ceremony, choosing instead to exchange letters that brought tears to both of their eyes. The emotion was high in the ceremony as Allie walked down the aisle with her dad to an awaiting Dan. After their vows, their dog, Murphy, joined in for a few minutes of photos before we captured family, wedding party and a few portraits of the happy couple. It didn’t take long for the weather to take a turn (hello, downpour of rain!), which resulted in a favorite photo of Allie and Dan under their umbrella.

The reception was full party mode, with sweet and funny speeches. Allie and Dan did a s’mores and donut dessert station in lieu of a traditional cake – yum! We snuck out for some sunset photos with their vintage getaway car, which was a fun break before the band got the dance started inside. There are so many favorites from this day. Keep scrolling for a bit to see the highlights of this day!
