8.4.18 Jacqui & Joe | Depot Minneapolis | Wedding Photography

Jacqui and Joe’s luxury summer wedding at the The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel was one for books!  With a dream team of local Minneapolis vendors, listed below, no detail was left unturned and undecorated!  This celebration was truly stunning from start to finish.  And the best part?!  Jacqui and Joe and their families and wedding party members – officiant and childhood friend of Jacqui’s included – were so fun, loving, chill, and so so so so happy to be celebrating this wedding day!
I loved all the outward signs of celebration and love, and the value these two place on their families.  Their ceremony was a blend of Christian and Jewish traditions including a unity candle, chuppah (made of rose petals), breaking of the glass… and with their parents standing up along with the wedding party.  And, of course, the Hora.  This is my favorite dance.  It’s so celebratory and happy and energetic – it’s hard to capture it all in words, but boy do you feel giddy throughout!  Plus, performed by a live band, The R Factor – even better!
If you just can’t get enough of these two, check out Jacqui and Joe’s winter engagement session at the very end of this post.

Winter Engagement Session in Minneapolis:
Jacqui and Joe braved a Minneapolis winter day for their engagement session.  Their adorable pup Rizzo joined in fun.  Never have I ever seen a pup run towards someone and end up on her back for belly rubs SO incredible fast.  It cracked me up.  Just another testament to all the love and adoration this little family shares.  For their session, we started at the studio and ended up outside at Boom Island very nearby.  It was chilly, but always worth it!
