We have known Ashley and Justin for several years now, as Justin worked on the KQRS Morning Show and we shoot the Vegas trip for them every year. That was where we initially met Ashley, but had met Justin before that. I remember Ashley telling us that we were going to shoot their wedding once they finally got engaged. They eventually did and that is when we got to shoot their engagement photography, as well as meet Justin's two wonderful daughters. You can see their engagement shoot at Como Park here. The two were married on a rather blustery day in October. Luckily, we were able to get some beautiful portraits for them inside the St. Paul Embassy Suites, where they all got ready. The only major downside to the St. Paul Embassy Suites from a photography standpoint is that on a Saturday during wedding season, you have actual ceremonies going on, as well as people coming and going. There was a ceremony that day, two other groups of weddings, and a ton of guests coming into the hotel. So getting shots without people in the background, or even being able to find a place to shoot, can be extremely difficult. It's just an overcrowding issue (too many people in one place). We have shot their on less busy days and it's fantastic, but this was a little tough.
The ceremony and reception took place at the Klub Haus in St. Paul. The Klub Haus is a really nice venue. I personally liked the area for the reception versus the dining area because it fit more people and there were a lot of people at the reception. Ashley and Justin are such a sweet couple and the wedding was so inclusive of Justin's daughters. It was the most touching part of the whole day from our perspective. I honestly have never met people that deserve to be parents more than those two. We wish them all the happiness in the world.
Thank you to the following for making this day amazing:
