Alison & Taylor | Minneapolis Event Center Wedding

In the week before Ali & Taylor's wedding, the weather looked like it would be a complete washout on the wedding day. Thankfully, the wedding day came and the clouds parted just as their ceremony ended! Ali and Taylor didn't see each other before the ceremony, but did exchange letters to each other. Ali told us that they each signed their letter the exact same way, which is pretty cute, and both shed a few tears when reading their letters. I love that Taylor showed his emotions so clearly in the letter reading and when he watched Ali walk down the aisle with her dad. Ali's stunning dress had two looks with a detachable skirt and such a pretty illusion back with button details. 

The reception was so special, with their siblings and parents contributing to the speeches and giving some insight into Ali & Taylor's relationship over the past years. Taylor even led the guests in singing 'Happy Birthday' to his grandpa who was turning 90 that day. I absolutely loved Grandpa's reaction to this AND being presented with his own birthday cake (and his sweet wife giving him a hug)! These are the moments that are so special and a reminder that a wedding really is the joining of two families. We're so glad Ali & Taylor let us capture such a special day. Congrats to you two!
