I’m going to start my backlog of blogging with Ashley & Pat’s wedding at The Commons Hotel in Minneapolis, MN. The Commons was a new venue to me and I am pretty sure my jaw hit the floor upon entering the hotel. They did such a great job styling this hotel and it made the perfect backdrop for getting ready, first look and bridal party photos! As if that wasn’t enough, we headed to the gorgeous St. Thomas Chapel for A&P’s ceremony. Ashley and Pat were such a fun couple, full of life and love. It was such a joy to capture them with their family and friends. After the ceremony we went down to the Stone Arch Bridge for some more bridal party photos. Wow, what a beautiful day we had for April. In Minnesota, you totally take a gamble having an April wedding, it could be gorgeous or covered in snow, HA! The fun continued back at The Commons Hotel for dinner and dancing and I loved the couples classic color choice of black and gold. Stories of love and laughter were shared and what a great night it was!
