A Semple Mansion Wedding

It was incredible to be part of this Semple Mansion wedding in Minneapolis!

The Semple Mansion venue is a perfect location to have both your ceremony and reception. I am a big fan of Minneapolis historic mansions, and this one quickly became my favorite. Inside the mansion,  every room is full of character giving the venue a timeless and modern vibe!

Oh Happy Day!

I met Irina and Andrew for their engagement photos, and it was then I could see how much they enjoy each other’s company. I knew right there they were going to have the most amazing day! They are funny, and laugh hard! They are also loving and kind, as everyone around them had tears all day!

As we arrived, we were seeing snow flurries  (a little unexpected in October!)  . I knew when walking into this day it would be be an emotional day – Irina and Andrew’s love story is one that writers could do books about.

Irina & Andrew’s moviesque story!

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!

The Mansion story!

The Mansion is truly a Twin Cities classic. The building was originally a residential mansion from Frank to Anne Semple, bought and restored by the current owners in 2007 .

Our favorite spots were the staircase, the grand foyer and the amazing third floor ballroom.  Is plenty of big inside, and with so many rooms to roam around, it makes it a perfect place for Minnesota colder fall and winter days

                   The gorgeous staircase at this Semple Mansion Wedding was where we did most of the formal photos!                                     

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.
