I had the honor of photographing Chris and Allen’s wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion in Minneapolis.

Allen and Chris spent the afternoon getting ready with their siblings and closest friends before sneaking away for  portraits outside.

The Van Dusen is seriously beautiful and served as the perfect backdrop for their portraits. And please take a moment to appreciate just how chic the wedding party was.

It was the most perfect September evening for guests to enjoy cocktail hour on the veranda before being escorted to the ballroom for dinner.

After dinner, guests made their way into the carriage house for dancing.

This group was ready to party from the minute the dance floor opened and I have no doubt they carried on well into the night.
