As a Maplewood wedding photographer and fellow member of Cross Lutheran Church, this was a special wedding day for me as well. Pastor Bob Preuss shared meaningful words during our wedding just as he did for Ryan and Stephanie. Stephanie's family has been members of the church since she was little too. I remember running the halls as children, it's amazing how fast time flies. There wedding day was perfect. It was genuine with emphasis put on family and friends. Speaking of friends, I'll never forget walking into Ryan's apartment that morning and hearing Skrillex being pounded while the guys got ready. Amongst the cans of Red Bull, I found Ryan filling out his card for Stephanie.
It was quite the celebration from beginning to end and I'm so thankful to have been a part of it. Enjoy the images guys!
