Minneapolis Wedding Photographers

Wedding planning is the perfect time to dream, so let’s visualize a downtown Minneapolis wedding – the urban aesthetic, the sleek post-industrial beauty, the life and lights of the city! You’re in the thick of it and tucked away at the same time, your own little part of the city carved out just for you and yours.

We’d like to share with you Ben and Shari’s downtown Minneapolis wedding to offer inspiration while you’re making your own wedding dreams a reality!  (Check out the sunset on their adventure session!)

These two held their reception at Mercy Bar and Dining Room in the heart of Minneapolis, just off Hennepin Avenue. We took full advantage of the venue’s classic beauty and the city’s rich texture to create some of our favorite shots.


Ben’s beaming personality was on display from the get-go 🙂

Ben and Shari shared their first look in Mercy’s sophisticated downstairs barroom with classic study-style details – gorgeous!

We took Ben and Shari out into the streets to capture the variety and texture of the city.

If you’re considering a downtown Minneapolis wedding, it’s a great idea to talk with your photographer about getting out for shots in the city! There are so many spots to explore.

Then it was time to head to Adath Jeshurun Congregation for their ceremony!

With the ceremony a success, they were off to celebrate at their Mercy reception!

Cheers Ben!

Shari with all her ladies!

This shot is one of our favorites from the night. Ben and Shari are sharing their first dance together under the play of the venue’s lights and the soft glow of candlelight.

At the end of the night, Ben and Shari let out their excitement together! We had so much fun with this lovely couple and their family and friends!

We hope you enjoyed their journey and found a little inspiration for your own downtown Minneapolis wedding!

And as always a special thanks to the venue and vendors that made the magic happen!
