Loring Social Wedding // Lyndale Park Garden Wedding
Choosing a venue for your wedding is such a personal decision. You really want to choose a venue that represents you well as a couple. Paige and Josh got engaged in Cinque Terra, Italy and so the European accents of Loring Social worked perfectly for their wedding. With an airy open space, high ceilings, chandeliers, and a European style alley that evokes the winding streets of Cinque Terra or Napoli, a Loring Social wedding features some singular elements that make it unique amongst Minneapolis wedding venues. Matching the European feel of the reception, Paige and Josh’s bright summer wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Lyndale Park Peace Garden. All in all this was a lush & beautiful summer wedding showcasing some of the most beautiful venues in Minneapolis.
Getting Ready // Hyatt Wedding Photos
My top prerequisite for good Getting Ready photos is natural lighting. This can sometimes be tricky, even in a large hotel suite. Nevertheless, we always make it work – even in the tightest space. It’s important to clear the area you’re shooting in – so you don’t have any mess or distractions. This minimalist and simple composition helps draw focus in on the details items that I’m shooting.
Loring Park Wedding Photos
Paige & Josh chose to have their pre-ceremony Formals photos in Loring Park. Since I live in the area, I’m very familiar with how Loring Park can be a wonderful choice for wedding or engagement photos throughout the year. One of my favorite spots in particular is the Peace Garden at the center of Loring Park.
The Lyndale Park Peace Garden Wedding
The weather for Paige & Josh’s Lyndale Park Peace Garden wedding ceremony couldn’t have been better. The ceremony site was decorated with lush and vibrant florals from Artemisia Studios. This was my first time shooting a ceremony at this site, and I really appreciated all the marvelous floral and leafy backdrops that could be found at the Lyndale Park Peace Garden.

After the ceremony, Paige & Josh and the wedding party took more photos at the Lyndale Park Peace Garden. Thankfully we had these awesome parasols to help block out the sun. This was the first time I saw a whole bridal party use these types of parasols. They were perfect for mid-day photos.
Loring Social Wedding Reception
Paige & Josh’s Loring Social wedding reception featured fabulous and elegant decor by Artemisia Studios. During golden hour, we got to steal away for a moment to take photos in the quasi-European alley behind the building. The fun then continued for a wonderful First Dance and reception at Loring Social.
