Catharine & Andrew | Mankato MN Wedding

When I think about Catharine and Andrew a little smile just creeps up on my face. These two are just beaming with joy and love and it’s absolutely contagious! How I am so lucky to find such nice clients is beyond me! Andrew & Catharine were married at their Alma mater (and mine!), Bethany Lutheran College on a steamy June day in Minnesota. I love the photos of them on campus, the place where they met, started dating and fell in love.
Their ceremony was breathtaking, although I will say I am a little biased to weddings at Trinity Chapel on Bethany’s campus. It’s a stunning chapel and I know so many friends, fellow classmates and clients that have said their vows here. Their Christian ceremony was particularity beautiful with perfectly selected hymns, lovely music and great soloists. It was extra special that Catharine’s father not only walked her down the aisle but married them, how amazing!
Following the ceremony guests arrived at the Country Inn & Suites to a beautifully decorated hall with accents of teal and twinkly lights. They of course managed to incorporate their love of coffee as well with burlap bags of chocolate covered espresso beans, yum!

I just LOVE this moment…Catharine’s sweet little flower girl wanted some makeup, too.

The Matron of Honor and Best Man speeches were two of the best I’ve ever heard. Safe to say the whole room was laughing!
