Bridgewater Bank Mississippi Mingle | Nicollet Island Pavilion | Minneapolis Event Photographer

Bridgewater Bank hosted its annual Nicollet Island Event, the Mississippi Mingle at the Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis in September.

This open house-style event is an opportunity for the bank to network with clients, potential clients, original shareholders, team members, and so on.

Mintahoe Catering & Events is the onsite caterer at the Pavilion.  Their food stations included (but were not limited to) a Smashed-tini Station (mashed potato bar), Seafood Station, Sausage Station, and (the first to get cleaned out) Petit Sweets Station, - plus the multiple bars and passed hor d'oeuvres.  Linen Effects provided the linens, Instant Request DJ Entertainment did the lighting, and Event Lab supplied the centerpieces.  The late night snack was pizza from Pizza Luce!  And the highest-energy vendor of all was the evening's entertainment, a Prince tribute band that brought down the house.  Shout out to Chase & Ovation: a Salute to the Music of Prince!

With over 800 people in attendance, this was a super fun and dynamic event to photograph.  My co-photographer Trish and I captured the event space, details, "Step & Repeat" photos against the branded backdrop, candids, "Smile Files" (groups of people looking at the camera and smiling - a much more intentional form of candid photography), and the band and dancing.  What a party!  Thanks for bringing us on, Bridgewater!

The bank contact gave me this info about the company: Bridgewater Bank was created from the idea that the best bank to serve a successful and energized group of clients would be one that was built by experienced bankers with an entrepreneurial perspective.  While we pride ourselves on our expertise in real estate, you don't have to be a real estate investor or an entrepreneur to appreciate our responsive service, dedicated support and unconventional attitude.  With a wide range of deposit and lending products, we can certainly meet the needs of anyone looking for an alternative to conventional banking.  At Bridgewater, you will enjoy dealing directly with professional bankers whose first priority is to serve you.  Bridgewater Bank may not look like a traditional community bank, but through extensive networking, we focus on building communities.
