Old school meets modern would be a great way of describing Alyssa and Mark’s wedding, plus lots of heat, powerful storms… and yet still somehow great weather. Hrm… not sure how that works, but it did.
We started off at Estetica Salon & Spa with the girls while the guys hit the bars and threw some darts. The girls finished getting ready at the St. Paul Hotel before heading to the church. I love the satin-y bridesmaids dresses and how the light played off the folds… very cool. Next was a beautiful ceremony followed by a off-balance dance party while riding the Twin Cities Trolley to Sweeny’s bar for between-event drinks… impromptu itinerary addition of the Happy Gnome and life was even more beer-a-licious. (If you haven’t noticed, the plan was to basically criss-cross [make you jump, jump!!] the area we did their engagement photographs last fall). Off to the stunning Landmark Center for an amazing reception, dinner and dance. Even Obama made a showing. 😉
