Bridget & Alex Wedding – Intimate Wedding in Downtown Minneapolis

Bridget and Alex wanted to keep their wedding small and intimate—a celebration of love between those who love them the most. The couple invited 30 of their closest friends and family to witness their exchange of vows. 

The couple split their celebration between each of the Twin Cities—an outdoor ceremony at St. Anne’s Episcopal in St. Paul, followed by a reception in the Courtyard of the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Minneapolis. The ceremony was held under a bright sun, surrounded by trees, offering the perfect backdrop for an intimate celebration. After the ceremony, the wedding party and guests travelled to the other end of the Twin Cities in the dazzling Courtyard by Marriott.

After the toasts had been given, the first dances completed (with some sporty moves by the , and the weddinggoers contented with mingling, we snuck outside for golden-hour photos. The Minneapolis Skyline, as always, put its best foot forward to wish the couple all the best in love. The sunset was perfect and covered the city in gold. We went up to the mostly-empty rooftop and took portraits both formal and intimate.  

Congratulations, Bridget and Alex!
