Gina + Dan | Snowy, Intimate Wedding in the Fall - St. Paul Elopement Photographer

Gina and Dan's intimate St. Paul elopement mixed a bit of old Hollywood glamour and a hint of Minnesota winter.  They had planned an outdoor celebration in their backyard amidst the fall colors -- but Mother Nature had other plans and showered their wedding day with a good ol' dose of Minnesota Winter -- in October!  Their backyard wedding turned into a cozy indoor celebration in their dining room, lined with chairs for their nearest and dearest.  Big, beautiful snowflakes fell through the air and created a bit of a wonderland for their photos (very unexpected, but lovely!), as they adventured through downtown St. Paul.  They were all smiles, despite the chilly air.  As they said their vows, they were surrounded by family and did a happy dance back up the "aisle".  The bride's sister shared an incredibly emotional toast, retelling stories of their childhood and how she had bought (and saved) a meaningful little book about being sisters, which she presented to Gina on her wedding day.  Not a dry eye in the house! After the ceremony and some celebratory toasts, the couple shared their first meal as husband and wife with their guests at the iconic Mancini's Charhouse in St. Paul.  Not even the snow could keep these two from a perfect day!

Congratulations, lovebirds!
