REBECCA AND JOHN'S WEDDING

September, 2008 in Minneapolis

"Our wedding was fantastic, we had the best fall day in Minneapolis, not a cloud in the sky. All of our family and friends that traveled far and wide to come loved Minneapolis, some of them had never even been there before. The day of the wedding went so quickly, but all of our planning and attention to detail really paid off, and allowed us to really enjoy the experience and now be worrying about the little things."
