Sarah & Thor | Twin Cities, MN wedding photography

I feel I must start this with a simple… GO BISON!

For those of you who weren’t at the wedding of Sarah & Thor and wondering what bison have to do with a wedding, it was a resounding cheer that was heard throughout the day as they are alumni of North Dakota State University, as well as a good number of their wedding guests. If they didn’t go to NDSU, then there were definitely fans of the Bison football team as there was plenty of cheering going on anytime NDSU or Bison was mentioned. Nothing like having your own fans at your wedding!

The day started off in New Brighton at St. John the Baptist Church where Sarah arrived and got ready. She got ready behind closed doors since she didn’t want to see Thor before their wedding. Thor & his groomsmen arrived not too long after. Once he arrived, he stopped and chatted with his father for some possible final words of advice…

As his groomsmen were busy getting their flowers pinned on, Sarah was discretely getting ready with the help of her mother and her bridesmaids…

Outside the door and down the hallway, Thor was smiling as he got his flowers pinned…

As we started to get some of the formals done prior to the ceremony, we hid Thor from seeing Sarah, as well as from seeing his Best Man goofing around…

We then hid Sarah to finish the portraits with Thor and it was nearing the start of the ceremony, a perfect time for some last minute touch-ups…

Sarah & her father embraced after he saw her as a bride for the first time right before the ceremony…

Not too long after, the ceremony was underway…

They sealed their marriage with a kiss…

Luckily, the storm that passed through the area started and ended during the ceremony, perfect timing for photos afterwards…

We drove through busy traffic and arrived at Edinburgh USA in Brooklyn Park for the wedding reception. A beautiful location for some more wedding photos…

There’s a nice looking group of bridal party members don’t you think??

We then finished up with a few shots of Sarah & Thor as it started to sprinkle again…

The Clubhouse of Edinburgh USA was elegantly decorated for the reception…

As dinner got underway, the clanging of glasses for a kiss began and the Best Man almost stole one from Sarah…

And once the speeches began, there was no shortage of laughter – perhaps at the mercy of Sarah & Thor, but no harm done ; )

Once again – GO BISON!

The dance began with their first dance as husband & wife, filled with plenty of smiles between the two of them…

The guests had the pleasure of having a band play live music to get the party started too…

During the dance, the bridal party was treated to & enjoyed a fine cigar from Thor as a gift…

It was great to see so many family & close friends help celebrate your wedding, Sarah & Thor. The rain stayed away at all the right times and I hope that your wedding day full of fun was a perfect way to start a lifelong full of love and happiness!! Congrats again!
