This wedding I was able to shoot under Gina Zeilder Photography. Brooke and Evan where complete gems. They both were brimming with excitement and just pure joy the entire day. Both decided to get ready only a couple of miles from their home in Downtown Minneapolis as the Hewing Hotel. The girls started their day off with mimosas in a private room of Brian Graham Salon. I mean is there another way to start your wedding day?!The girls wore a lite mint green dress while Brooke wedding dress was a stunning lace dress which she paid with Badgley Mischka champagne colored heels. After Brooke got into her dress all the girls held hands as they were led into the room with their eyes closed until the big reveal. Everyone was just shook in the best way of how gorgeous Brooke looked on her wedding day!!
Next person to see her was her dad. They had a Father- Daughter first look in the downstairs room of the Hewing Hotel. It was so precious to see how excited her parents were to get to be a part of this day they had all been waiting for! After snapping a couple more photos we ascended to the Hewing Rooftop Bar by the pool for the first look. Watching Evan just soak her in was seriously adorable. Her gift to him was a Starry Night Print of one of their special days together. Evan loved the gift. We all partied it good up with the Minneapolis skyline as a gorgeous backdrop before heading out for full wedding party photos.
A short trip to Boom Island and back we all headed for the wedding Ceremony at the Machine Shop in Downtown Minneapolis. The Florals at the Machine Shop were AMAZING! They had a flower ring surrounding the main chandelier that just gave the ceremony such a whimsical vibe. The priest made everyone laugh throughout the service and gave his blessing to Brooke and Evan.
The were husband and wife before you know it; Both bride and groom just had giant smiles on their faces.
The reception was just beautifully decorated with candles, flowers, and greenery. One of my favorite parts of the day came during the first dance. While Brooke and Evan where twirling their way through the dance floor, Evan waved over his new father-in-law and left his baffled bride. He ran up to the stage and sang a couple of lines to their first song! Brooke was SO surprised and I loved this little surprise of the night!
The evening continued with lots of dancing!
Please enjoy this Machine Shop Wedding of Brooke and Evan!!
