Brad & Allyson…married | Saint Paul Landmark Center Wedding Photographer

Forever.  I had been waiting for this wedding for what felt like forever.  Brad and Allyson booked me several years ago.  Yes. Years.  Back when they booked me, it was hard to envision their day ever arriving…but then the months flew by…and the months turned into weeks…and then…it was their wedding week, and I couldn’t help but feel so excited for their day.  Over the last couple of years, I have watched the two of them support each other through school and the struggles that follow that.  This couple is so loving and genuine.  There are not many people out there like them…and their families are just as wonderful.

Also…I have to give a shout out to Brad on finally being past…and having passed…the Bar…it is a feat to be uber-proud of…congrats.

Brad and Allyson’s whole day was spent in downtown St. Paul…my personal favorite…since it was where my wedding day happened too!  The day started at the St. Paul Hotel…and then moved to the Landmark Center where their entire event took place.

An emotional first look…a long time coming…I may have secretly shed a tear or two…
I have countless pictures from their day of Allyson’s laughter…Brad does this to her…they are meant to be together…
A gorgeous bride in an alleyway… my favorite…
They are meant to be…
Many thanks to the girls from Hyacinth Events for the gorgeous arrangements!  As always…it was stunning.  Classic red roses were the perfect touch for this classy couple.
The bow tie.  Love. It.
Allyson…you’re so beautiful…

And my favorite sequence from the day…during the ceremony…Brad was looking so lovingly at Allyson…and then decided to lean in for a kiss…before he realized he was supposed to save that part for the end…
So he had to top it at the end of the ceremony…

Allyson…I fell in love with your dad at your wedding…one giant teddy bear…
Brad’s “brothers” were all there to serenade Allyson…it was quite impressive…I loved it.

Brad and Allyson…I’m honestly going to miss “looking forward” to your wedding…but I know that you two will be an amazing couple…and I can’t wait to photograph your babies some day!  Yep.  I just said it.

    Karla Hammer - Noelle, WOW!!!!!!! The pics are fabulous. I’m so glad you got the pictures of Brad and Al’s “early kiss”. I thought it was priceless. I relived the day. You captured it wonderfully. I was sharing them with my friend here at work and she said they were the best wedding photos she has ever seen. I totally agree. Thank you!. K
