Minneapolis Wedding Photographers

We met Cortney and Jeshal while shooting her sister Rachel’s lovely wedding to her husband Willie, and were thrilled we’d get to work with them! We already knew they were fun-loving and so adorable after their waterfall engagement session, and the big day was just as epic. Their A’bulae wedding was truly as heartwarming as it was beautiful – a perfect celebration of love!

Their lovely location, A’bulae, is an award-winning Twin Cities venue – and it’s no wonder! An A’bulae wedding combines style and sophistication with the historic feel of downtown St. Paul. Perfectly located for any local and out of town guests, its loft-style setting provides sweeping views of downtown and rustic natural decor. The venue prides itself on its integrative approach to event-planning and hands-on staff support and coordination. So if you’re looking for a full-service downtown venue with class and style – look no further!

Now without further adieu – Cortney and Jeshal’s A’bulae wedding! Enjoy 🙂

In the morning, both wedding parties practiced a choreographed dance for later that evening – it was a great way to set the mood for a fun-filled day 🙂

Cortney and Jeshal are pros at the dip, as evidenced by their waterfall engagement 🙂 We think you can be too if you’d like to learn! Check out our video – how the dip is for everyone!

One of our favorite shots of the day – capturing sincere emotion is such an important part of our job, and we’re honored to document these moments for our clients.

Cortney and Jeshal had a beautiful Indian ceremony after dinner, and this was one of our favorite moments.

Then it was time for the dance! We learned that it was choreographed by Jeshal’s sister (rocking it on the right!), and it represents a story of their lives!
