Earle Brown Heritage Center Wedding / Lindsey + Brad
Lindsey and Brad met as they were walking to their cars at the end of a party. Conversation sparked and they stood by their cars for hours getting to know each other. They made plans to talk again soon, and after several dates, they were smitten. Their closest family and friends gather on a cool spring day for their Earle Brown Heritage Center wedding.
Lindsey actually used to photograph weddings herself and wanted her wedding day to be relaxed and easy going. She dressed upstairs while Brad made his way over to the Earle Brown from his hotel. Once they were both ready, they met by the fountain for their first look. After some time alone, the couple joined hands and we walked along the paths and found some lush pink flowering trees.
Their families joined us shortly after to greet the couple and smile for pictures, and it wasn’t long before the other guests began to arrive for the ceremony.
It had cooled down from the beginning of the day. The sky was now clouded and grey, but there wasn’t any chance of rain. Guests made their way outdoors to their chairs while Lindsey and her father tucked away inside. Once everyone was seated, Brad made his way down the aisle to await his beautiful bride.
Their ceremony was lead by a pastor who not only touched on the religious importance of marriage, but how and why this couple’s story came to be. Lindsey and Brad exchanged vows, rings, then watered a tree together to symbolize their will to nurture their relationship. They didn’t kiss, but walked down the aisle in bliss then back up to hug and greet each of their guests.
After a greeting from the bride and groom, their guests made their way indoors to the social hour where they could eat, drink and be merry. Once everyone was inside, Bradd introduced their special guest – Elvis – who performed his greatest hits next to Jack on the guitar. Elvis played a few slow songs and Lindsey and Brad shared an unofficial first dance.
Lindsey and Brad – Thank you so much for having me! I now love Elvis and your sweet words and gift card to MN state parks meant the world to me. I wish you both nothing but happiness and am so grateful to have been apart of this beautiful day!
