St. Paul Wedding with Chanel + Kelvin

Lucky. That’s what I call myself for this wedding. By chance, I got to know Chanel’s sister Krista a few years ago and connected with her immediately. When I got to meet Chanel for the first time, it was summer and she was radiant. She was so kind and beautiful and fun!!

Last year, I was fortunate to be a part of their engagement photo session. Which was actually supposed to be a styled session with a surprise engagement. But…as it would happen, the ring didn’t arrive in time. But that helped us with lower pressure (at least on my end and for Kelvin I think). We were able to have a wonderful session in Minneapolis that day. (still in love with all their photos!!)

On the wedding day, I was so happy and excited that I even showed up over an hour early!! LOL. I’m so glad that I did because it gave me a chance to really take a look at Abulae and check out all the wonderful things this venue has to offer.

From start to finish, I found myself fighting back tears all day. The absolute love these two have for each other…the love their friends and family have and how incredibly well articulated it showed as well. Friend and family totally willing to pop into the cold MN air for photos with laughs and smiles the whole way through. What a wonderful group of friends!!

I’m so honored to have documented such a beautiful day. I already can’t wait to see them again. Hopefully whenever they visit or whenever I find myself back in MN.
