Modern Industrial Wedding at Minneapolis Event Centers | Kareem & Tori | Rachel Lahlum Photography

Kareem and Tori were married on summer day in Minneapolis. The weather was so great that they held the ceremony outside on the brick-laid sidewalk leading into The Riverside at Minneapolis Event Centers. 

After vows were exchanged, the couple retreated inside for libations and dinner. The Riverside has a modern industrial feel—an old warehouse repurposed for love and events that celebrate it. Exposed brick and wide wooden beams line venue, creating and elegant and intimate setting,.

The sun played nice for Kareem and Tori. After an outfit change and first dances, we walked to the river for sunset portraits with the skyline and the setting sun painted the buildings in evening glow. One of the streets we crossed and the sun almost perfectly setting in line. 

Congratulations, Kareem and Tori!
