This Winter Wedding at JW Marriott Mall of America is one of my favorites to date. The JW Marriott is a beautifully designed space that is great for weddings and events. Although the JW can accommodate over 1,000 guests, this one was a small family affair. Before the ceremony and reception my adventurous couple had me following them as they climbed up the frozen ice of Minnehaha Falls. What an adventure it was, complete with fresh falling snow and lots of laughs with their wedding party.

After our fun in the snow we headed back to the JW Marriott for their intimate ceremony and a beautiful dinner. To end the evening the couple hired a huge party bus to go on an epic holiday lights tour. As a result of all the fun on the bus we had to make a quick bathroom pitstop at McDonald’s, which led to one of my brides going full force into the kids play area, for what was yet another great moment in an evening filled with fun and laughter.

Surprising the grandparents… This is a very sweet moment with grandma & grandpa finding out that they were not in fact showing up to a holiday party but rather their granddaughters wedding. Grandma was over the top excited and I was definitely misting up a little during this moment.
