Friday’s overcast day transformed into a beautiful blue sky with big white clouds as I photographed Jessica and Steve’s wedding. Jessica started by getting ready in the gorgeous bridal suite at 413 on Wacouta and the couple had their first look in a classic downtown St. Paul alley. I photographed the wedding party, who were decked out in purple, in Mears Park before moving to Nazareth Chapel at Northwest College in Roseville. Friends filled the pews as Jessica and Steve exchanged vows on the altar of the beautiful sanctuary. They exited the church for a ride in an antique Cadillac and arrived at 413 on Wacouta just after sunset where we headed to the roof for some breathtaking shots. Their cocktail style reception featured appetizers and a variety of cupcakes and plenty of dancing to celebrate a beautiful day.
While going through some old photos, I found prints that my husband, Peter Matthews took on 9/11 in New York City. I scanned a few of his images to share with you as we remember those who were lost as the 10th anniversary approaches.
