Hindu Temple of Minnesota, MN Wedding Photographer

Congratulations, Archana and Sarvesh! They had a beautiful ceremony at the Hindu Temple of Minnesota in Maple Grove, MN. The following day, they had their reception at the Harriet Island Pavilion in St. Paul, MN. Thank you, Archana and Sarvesh, for letting me capture your two-day celebration! This was my first time photographing a Hindu ceremony, and I loved gaining this wonderful experience! The Hindu Temple of Minnesota is such a beautiful building- I’m in love with the architecture and those gold doors! A few more highlights from the event include: so many bold, bright colors, all three of Archana’s stunning outfits, the red Porsche and balloon, the “greatest adventure”/around-the-world reception theme, and all of the dancing! Plus, we had amazing weather the entire weekend, I couldn’t help but get in as many outdoor portraits as I could! Shout out to Simply Elegant Group for doing a fabulous job planning this gorgeous event!

Kathryn and Ben had their wedding ceremony at St. Kate’s Our Lady of Victory Chapel followed by a reception at the Minneapolis Event Center. Although these two live in Chicago, they wanted to have their wedding in Minneapolis since their families are in Minnesota. Kathryn went to undergrad school at St. Kate’s and always pictured herself getting married in the beautiful Our Lady of Victory Chapel. Since they already knew their ceremony location, they chose the Minneapolis Event Center for the reception because of the convenient location, large space, and the beautiful bridal suite. Let’s rewind though. These two met way back in the summer of 2007 while they were both working at Kay Jewelers. Shortly after he started, Ben decided to move on to a different career path. Him and Kathryn remained friends and eventually started dating. On March 29, 2015, Ben convinced Kathryn to wake up at six in the morning (despite her just returning from a trip to Las Vegas) to take sunrise pictures in front of Chicago’s Millenium Park’s bean. Involved in the ploy, the couple’s friends Nicholas and Jill told Kathryn that they had to see the bean at sunrise before they moved to New York. So Kathryn got out of bed and the two couples went out to brunch and then took group photos in front of the bean. During the photos, Ben got down on one knee. At first, Kathryn thought he was joking around, but then he pulled out the ring box and she realized it was very real! Of course, she said yes! The couple has always enjoyed boating together,...
