minneapolis swedish institute wedding

Michelle and Dan made us¬†feel like the luckiest wedding photographers in the world! Such a sweet and happy couple! ūüôā

Dan is from Sweden and Michelle from Minnesota, and life brought their hearts together while plane tickets and other wonders allowed their family and friends to have this amazing celebration at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, following a charming reception at Le Meridien 

We¬†love love her wedding dress! And the bridesmaids have a blast with it too!¬† It was so fitting that she looked like such a princess for her wedding day, since the Swedish Institute looks so much like a castle, doesn’t it?¬† All of the beautiful florals only added to the fairy-tale feeling.¬† Michelle’s bouquet and the flowers in her hair were so dreamy, and the greenery crowns for the bridesmaids were perfect!

After the ceremony, Michelle and Dan celebrated and danced the night away with their guests.  The joy was palpable in the air.
