Q + D – Wedding at the Minneapolis Club

Qian and David’s wedding took place t the simply gorgeous Minneapolis Club, right in downtown Minneapolis.  The Minneapolis Club is such a beautiful and elegant venue, which matched their style so well! 

David contacted me just a few weeks before their wedding, and they were so excited ! They were coming all the way from Shanghai, from where Qian is from, to get married in Minneapolis!  Can you believe it??

Qian and David had a ceremony in Shangai first, and they wanted to celebrate with David’s friends and family here as well. They played a very heartwarming slideshow with their Shangai photos, and they had Qian’s chinese gown in display.

It was amazing to celebrate with all of the family and friends that traveled to Minneapolis to join them on their beautiful wedding day! 

We were right in the middle of all the best photo locations for portraits on the next day!  We took a little walk through the Stone Arch Bridge and even popped into the Guthrie Theater for a few pictures, then found this amazing mural in another part of town !   There are lots of amazing murals in Minneapolis, and this one is one of the greatest!  Such a  perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple that traveled so far to be married in this city.

Thank you, Qian and David, for choosing me to be a part of your special day!  I am so honored to have been there to witness the love between you, and I wish you many more years of happiness together!


If you’re planning a wedding in the Twin Cities or you just want to celebrate your love, I would love to hear from you!  There is nothing I love more than capturing the love between two people, whether it’s an elegant museum wedding, an intimate gathering at the courthouse, or just the three of us wandering around your home neighborhood or a beautiful park.
