St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church Wedding Photos

We have another great wedding to share with you! This time, its Mina and Kerstina’s St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church wedding photos from their Sunday, July 15th wedding!

This was a whirlwind wedding day as we traveled all over the Twin Cities area. We began their wedding day coverage in downtown St. Paul, MN at the Embassy Suites where the girls and the guys got ready for the wedding day. Mina and Kerstina also had their first look on the 7th-floor balcony.

The grooms stunned first look at Kerstina on the balcony at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Saint Paul, MN.

Shortly afterward, we loaded up the wedding party and headed to Centennial Lakes in Edina, MN for photos of Mina, Kertsina and their wedding party. This is such a pretty park right there in the heart of Edina.

While we weren’t there for very long, it was a very productive photo stop. Joannie and I were able to create lots of great wedding images in a very short period of time. Once we wrapped it up at Centennial Lakes, we headed to South St. Paul to St. Mary’s so these guys could get married!

Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church Wedding Ceremony

This was a very unique wedding from our standpoint as wedding photographers. Normally we try to stay out-of-sight and capture the wedding moments without being seen very much. Well, as you can see in Mina and Kerstina’s St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church wedding photographs, that definitely was not the case.

Not only did they want us to get up close while photographing their wedding, they actually strongly encouraged it! It took some getting used to, but after a short while, we got “right in there”! The funny thing is that we will be there for another wedding in just a few weeks!

We hope you’ve enjoyed Mina and Kerstina’s St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church wedding pictures. We’ll have many more images in “Part Two” at their pretty wedding reception, dinner, and dance held at the Minneapolis Marriott Southwest coming up in a few days. In the meantime, here’s a cute music video with many of our favorite images. Thanks for taking the time to read our post! – M&J
