Vadnais Heights Commons Wedding Photos

On July 20th, Joannie and I had the privilege of creating Mark and Jenna’s Vadnais Heights Commons wedding photos. This turned out to be a wonderful wedding day despite the day starting out with very stormy weather.

Because of the weather conditions, Mark and Jenna made the call the night before to move their wedding ceremony indoors at Vadnais Heights Commons. By their actual ceremony time it had turned out to be a beautiful afternoon, but all of the heavy rain earlier in the day made the grassy area very wet and soggy. It turned out that they made a good call.

It’s All About Family

Joannie and I started their wedding photographs earlier in the day at Jenna’s parents home in New Brighton, MN. The entire wedding party got ready there. That was followed with Mark and Jenna having their first look very nearby at Long Lake Regional Park.

After leaving Long Lake Regional Park, we all headed to the site of their wedding ceremony, reception, and dance in Vadnais Heights, MN. Upon arrival, we got to work right away creating Mark and Jenna’s Vadnais Heights Commons wedding photographs of their immediate and extended families before the ceremony.

One thing is for sure. Mark and Jenna have BIG extended families! Joannie and I were able to get them all photographed just in time before wedding guests began arriving for the ceremony.

Let’s Play Hockey!

Mark and Jenna met while playing in a hockey league together. Mark and Jenna included hockey gear in several of their engagement photographs that we created back in October. Many of those fun images were on display and many of their wedding decorations were hockey-themed as well. During their wedding ceremony, Pastor Greg Grimstad made more than a little mention about hockey during his homily.

Upon the conclusion, Mark and Jenna were Minnesota’s newest newlyweds!

Since they are currently on their honeymoon in Hawaii, Joannie and I would like to say mahalo to Mark and Jenna for asking us to be a part of their very special day. It has been so fun to get to know you guys and we’re so excited that we can now count you two among our friends.
