Summer Wedding – The Blaisdell Mansion in Minneapolis | Jess & Adam | Rachel Lahlum Photography

Wedding Photography at The Blaisdell Mansion - Minneapolis, MN

Set in the heart of historic Minneapolis, The Blaisdell is an early twentieth-century mansion now used as a wedding venue. The mansion’s historic charm and beautiful landscaping makes it an idyllic venue, and the perfect setting for Adam and Jess to tie the knot.

Misty blue was the theme for their big day—blue bridesmaids dresses, blue tuxes, blue flowers. Jess and Adam chose to do a first look and tears were shed—happy tears, of course!

For the first dance we left the reception area and took in the beautiful weather. The dance, along with the mother-son and father-daughter dances, were held on the patio and only to an intimate audience of their closest loved ones.

Of course, we need to talk about food. Dinner was served, but the make-your-own-ice cream sandwich bar was sweet!

Congratulations, Adam and Jess!
