Emotional Wedding at Historic Minneapolis Mansion – Irina & Andrew


Memorable story for this Emotional Mansion Wedding!

Through long distance, deployments, moving across state and going to school! Irina and Andrew grew their love stronger than ever.

The moment the wedding started, everyone had the biggest smiles as they walked into the Mansion . Meanwhile,   the snow kept falling outside! It  felt like something out from a movie! And it sure was something like that! After that, it was an emotional and love filled day!

In conclusion, maybe it was the tears that were contagious, the bride’s great big laughs  or seeing so many hugs around me, after that I don’t think I was the same person!

Truth is , getting a front row seat in something so magical changes you a bit.

This couple’s day was special from beginning to end!   Congratulations you two!

To get lost in your arms. To embrace life with all of our strength.
To let the world listen to our dreams, and fulfill them together.
To be and to live, in complete awe and in love, like we are supposed to.
