4.30.16 Lara & Pat | St. Paul Wedding Photography | St. Paul Hotel & Cathedral of St. Paul

Lara and Pat were married this April at the Cathedral of St. Paul, with a beautiful reception at the St. Paul Hotel.  St. Paul is near and dear to them and we were really able to capture its essence on this lovely spring day.  We started with their First Sight at the hotel, then moved to the cathedral for portraits at the alter and the ceremony itself.  Getting an image of the couple walking out the main cathedral doors was a priority to them, since the doors are only opened after a wedding ceremony.  My second photographer and I stationed ourselves both in front of and behind the couple to get the shot from both directions.  After the ceremony, we headed back to the hotel for outdoor wedding party portriats and more time with the bride and groom.  I recommend having at least a couple of opportunity during your day for portraits of the couple because light and weather change, and it's nice to check in photographically thoughout the day.  The couple visited with guests during the cocktail hour, then there was dinner (Nothing Bundt Cakes for dessert - yum!) and dancing, and of course the photography "finale."  A wonderful, fun, and classy day.  Congrats Lara and Pat! Check out their engagement session last fall, capturing the St. Paul feel and even featuring the Cathedral they got married in in the background.
