The Unluckiest Bash | ILEA Star Awards | Machine Shop

For this ILEA Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter's 13th annual Star Awards, the theme was "The Unluckiest Bash," a black and white wonder held at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis this spring.  Here's just a small sample of the amazingness that the ILEA team and donating vendors put on.  Off the charts!

I was honored to be nominated in both Wedding and Non-Wedding Photography categories, as well as winning for the Best ILEA Team Effort category along with Ryan Hanson, CSEP - BeEvents, Kathy Mrozek - Windmill Design, Molly O'Hearn - EideCom, and Jessica Ruth - Children's Cancer Research Fund for CCRF's Dawn of a Dream.

The whole event is a huge team effort months and months in the making.  Check out this list of vendors!
