Nathan and Cory celebrated their wedding at the University of Minnesota Campus Club on a perfect July day! The ceremony was on the terrace overlooking the campus and downtown Minneapolis. Guests were entertained with the sweet vocals of Maud Hixson and her Trio . The food was extraordinary with a variety of organic and local food buffets set up throughout the evening. The first appetizer buffet was called-“Church Picnic, Curry Style”, followed by “Surf and Cake”…it went on and on…………..with champagne, of course!
Nathan and Cory timed their wedding so they could entertain their guest with a great view of the Aquatennial Fireworks! No detail was overlooked for this wedding. It came as no surprise to me that they were unable to choose just ONE favorite image of their splendid day.
In Nathan’s words:
There’s no possible way I can pick one favorite-similarly, there’s no favorite moment from our perfect day. And with regard to the photos, you’ve no one to blame but yourself.
Here are five of my favorites, and the reason for each:
“Enjoying the day, barely an hour before our wedding. It’s shocking that we’re so relaxed-more accurately, it’s shocking that I’m so relaxed (without Vodka) (not counting a martini at lunch.)”
“The fireworks started promptly at 10pm, but were miles away and barely visible. Cory and others worried I would flip out, Instead I clearly remember thinking, if ruined fireworks are karma’s price for perfect weather, joyful guests, and getting through the vows without crying, etc.-it was a fair price. And then the actual Aquatennial fireworks began over the Sone Arch Bridge- and I suddenly realized that everything actually was perfect.”
“The end of the night. After dutifully mingling and saying many goodbyes-Cory and I connect for a last dance.”
“Our iconic wedding picture, courtesy of Verna’s quick eye.”
“An aside-I love that you captured the wedding list on my Blackberry-all items are marked completed, except one: Rhinestone socks!”
“Thanks Verna for your part in making our day truly magical. Your amazing pictures take me right back to that day-with all the joy, laughter, and silliness. Thank You”
Nathan and Cory, it was a remarkable day filled with love and laughter. Thank YOU!
