If I had to describe Chris and Crissy’s wedding in one word, I would choose: sweet. They are not only sweet on each other, but the sweetness with which they related to their friends and family made me smile all day long. Chris and Crissy let the day land squarely on their hearts. Tears flowed easily, along with laughter and lots of hugs.

They were married at the Minnesota Boat Club in St. Paul on Raspberry Island. This was my first time at the venue and I found it inspiring! I enjoyed all the fun architectural opportunities for unique compositions, as well as the rustic textures and beautiful light afforded by the Club house itself.

I LOVED Crissy’s green wedding shoes and her overall vintage style.

It’s seriously hard not to cry when photographing moments like this. Most of the time, I just do.

Chris and Crissy said that these photos pretty much sum up their relationship. :)

Chris starts off fairly calm and collected…

Then his beautiful bride makes her way down the aisle.
