Surprise Wedding in WA Frost – St Paul, Minnesota

JJ and K planned a surprise wedding in WA Frost, the most charming restaurant in St Paul, Minnesota. Not even their children knew about their plans until the day of the party! They only told the kids that day, surprising them too! We got to spend a little time with just the family before people began to arrive, celebrating this new chapter of their lives together. The guests all assumed they were simply joining JJ and K for a birthday dinner. They were all surprised, shocked, and excited when they discovered they were actually gathering for a surprise wedding! It was a beautiful, intimate ceremony, with many tears of joy shed and lots of love all around.
