Christina + Will | McNamara Alumni Center Wedding
The week before Christina and Will's wedding, I saw a wedding where the bride wore an awesome, sequined gown. It was a design by one of my favorite bridal designers, Truvelle. So inspired by her boldness and the unique look of the dress, I was *this close* to posting a photo on Facebook to say that I was dreaming of having a bride this year who had this same dress. You can imagine how floored I was when I walked into Christina's bridal suite and saw that very dress hanging on the closet door. Since the day started so awesomely, it's no surprise that the rest of the day was just as perfect. Married in Christina's home church, the bride and groom got ready at The Commons Hotel which is next door to where they held their reception at the McNamara Alumni Center. Since these two met while attending the University of Minnesota where they were both in the marching band, it only made sense to come back to where things began when they chose their venue. As a surprise to everyone except for an usher and Tom and me, Goldy made a surprise appearance at their dance. This gopher has serious dance moves and entertained the crowd well (while taking his fair share of selfies, too)!
We've gotten to know Christina and Will over the past year and especially from their engagement session last spring. It's easy to see why they are so perfectly matched. Huge congrats to this newlywed couple!
