Ben and Faith got married in Minneapolis at Columbia Manor on October 21st. This wedding with traditions old and new had incredibly romantic heart and an old-world feel. Faith borrowed stunning details such as her mother's veil, her great aunt's ring, and a dear friend's mink shawl. Columbia manor was built in 1925. It has elegant lighting and impressively massive wooden beams in it's grand hall which served as a room for both the ceremony and the reception. The food was savory and comforting consisting of fantastic hor d'oeuvres and delicious cheesecake cupcakes. One of my favorite parts of the night was the live band. Nothing adds to the classiness of a wedding like live music.
Faith's groom Ben has such a sweet heart. He has the gift of empathy and of helpful serving displayed through his attentiveness and gentleness toward his bride. Not to mention he has such an infectious laugh and sense of humor that you could see melt away all the wedding nerves from his gorgeous bride. I was drawn to Faith's sweetness, her bashful humility, and the way she carried herself with gentle and elegant beauty. Faith is an incredibly considerate person. Her wedding was very special to her, and she did so much of the detail work herself. Consider me VERY impressed. All the lettering you see she did herself by hand, and she did a fantastic job with all of the planning. The day went perfectly in my eyes.
Their laughter and ability to be deeply intuned with one another made for real and emotional imagery which inspired some of my favorite shots. Keep scrolling to see gorgeous candle-light, perfect black and gold details, and the most fun dance I have ever been to. Oh, did I mention sparklers? We'll pretend I did.
