After spending their wedding day with Deb + Bryan and their infectious laughter for their Cedarhurst Mansion wedding photos, my cheeks were on fire! Abundant jokes and one-liners are the name of the game whenever they’re around. Their beautiful day was full of laughter, joking, love and yes, even a few tears.
Deb + Bryan’s day was held at the amazing Cedarhurst Mansion in Cottage Grove. The gorgeous building was designed by Cass Gilbert, the architect who also designed the MN State Capital building, and is over a century old. It has even hosted four US Presidents. It made for a perfect backdrop for Deb + Bryan to join their lives together. They opted not to do a First Look, but to first see each other when walking down the aisle. When Deb started to tear up upon seeing Bryan, he only needed to break out in his infectious laughter again and smiles and laughter filled the garden – and got Deb laughing too!
Looking through the photos, you will also see a small homage to the Star Wars movies – their cake is topped by a set of bride and groom AT-ATs, complete with veil and tophat! Their day was rounded out with a cocktail hour in the spectacular garden, and an amazing dinner and night of dancing in the beautiful Cedarhurst ballroom. Deb + Bryan’s wedding day was so gorgeous down to the last detail.
Thank you so much, Deb + Bryan, for including me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer on one of the biggest days of your lives! I loved your Cedarhurst Mansion wedding photos, as well as your fun Lebanon Hills Regional Park engagement photos! And I am so happy for you both as you begin your new lives together!
