Katelyn and Austin’s Bloomington Event Center wedding was a veritable feast of the best of weddings – beautiful and romantic, heart-warming and fun, full to the brim with all things good in life!
They began their journey at the Church of St. Patrick in Edina with its snow-tipped evergreen grounds and the rosy warmth of walls of beautiful stained glass, then rocked a party bus all the way to their crazy fun reception at the Bloomington Event Center. If you’re looking for a super spacious and easily accessibly venue that focuses on making things simple and easy for their couples, this might be the place for you.
We love catching the family fun before the ceremony and reception 🙂
Putting the final touches on the lovely bride and her lacy keyhole wedding dress. Gorgeous!
Katelyn and Austin shared a first look together before the ceremony – so sweet 🙂
First Looks are neat alternatives to traditionally seeing each other at the aisle. If you’re curious about the perks, check out our blog on the First Look and also creating a flawless wedding timeline to help you fit it in!
The stained glass at the Church of St. Patrick was stunning – we couldn’t get enough of these two under its light!
Then we headed outside for couples’ portraits and a frolic in the snowy Minnesota winter! It was super chilly but Katelyn and Austin were troopers 🙂

Romance among the evergreens 🙂
They chose to write notes to each other before the wedding, and we loved getting to capture their sweet faces while reading them.
In front of their family and friends (and in the stunning stained glass light!), Katelyn and Austin made their vows and married!
Here’s the whole wedding party braving the chill and celebrating!
After a few more happy couple portraits in the snow, it was time to load up on the party bus and make way for their Bloomington Event Center wedding!
The wedding party had no issues getting into the swing of things 🙂
Which candy?? Difficult decision.
You know it’s going to be a rowdy party when the dancing starts even before the reception!
Speeches bring out the best faces 🙂
Katelyn and Austin took to the dance floor for their first ever dance as husband and wife!
Then it was time for everyone to cut loose! One perk of a Bloomington Event Center wedding – plenty of space for cutting a rug!
As photographers, you can’t ask for a better reception – everyone was out on the floor!
This is one of our favorite shots of the night! Austin was leading the charge on busting the best moves!
When you’re really feeling the music!
At the end of the night, we stole the couple away for a moment alone together and captured them among all the glitz and the lights of their big day 🙂
