Mina and David’s wedding at The Calhoun Beach Club

Mina and David! Where do I even begin with these two? Their wedding day started off with the girls getting ready at the fancy Le Meridien Chambers in downtown Minneapolis while David and the guys got ready at their home. Mina asked us to do a first look with her father before seeing David. I WAS ALL FOR THIS! Mina and her father are very close, and to see him cry was literally everything. It took him a while to find the right words– he was absolutely speechless. After a few more tears from Mina, her parents, and US, we proceeded up the elevator to meet our groom. David and Mina’s first look took place on the hotel’s balcony overlooking the skyscrapers. The couple shared an intimate moment above the busy streets with hugs, kisses, and admiration for each other’s first look. Afterwards, we were all picked up by a limo (David is the founder of the limo service called Mr Nice Guy! Check them out!)  that took us around Minneapolis for portraits. The entire portrait session was just PURE fun and joy. Literally, everyone was having a good time and showed excitement for the couple. Also, ALL the kids involved in their wedding… SO adorable.

Their ceremony and reception was classic and elegant. The blush and gold accents accompanied by simple greenery scattered throughout the room provided the perfect setting for the evening. The spacious windows across the room added the appropriate lighting and ambience throughout the night. The dance party? Not a single space on the dance floor unoccupied. I love Mina and David, and love their guests just as much!

Mina and David. Thank you for having me be a part of your special day!
