I have been blessed by being given the amazing task of capturing priceless moments for some of my longest friends on their wedding day. I've known Carissa since middle school and I couldn't have asked for a more powerful and fun filled wedding day to start off the 2011 summer. Matt and Carissa are in mad love and it's beautifully evident to everyone involved in their wedding day! We started the day with some precious "first glance" shots and Matt couldn't stop saying, "She looks amazing, right!?" Joining over 100 of their closest family and friends, I witnessed their vows in the beautiful Church of St. Peter.
From there, I thoroughly enjoyed my first DQ Blizzard followed by a Michelob Golden Light prior to 6pm :) To top it off, I think I took my favorite ring shot of all time. Having grown up in Maplewood and North St. Paul, Matt and Carissa's wedding day hit home. It was beautiful and down to earth. Precious moments were followed up by fun, of the wall excitement - perfect. Congratulations guys!
P.S. I can't finish this post without mentioning these final moments | 1. Matt showing Carissa his surprise "Forever & Always" tattoo right before the wedding | 2. Carissa braving the rain to capture the priceless DQ shot (umbrella and all) | 3. Matt's beautiful a capella moment at the reception - I got goosebumps!
