Tracie + Raul … married downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota at City Hall

I love weddings big and small, and this was the smallest wedding I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. On a very cold winter morning in downtown Saint Paul, Tracie and her groom Raul, along with four of their closest friends and family, headed to the Ramsey County Courthouse and City Hall for their beautiful wedding ceremony. I love so much about this wedding. I love that there was a wonderful formality about the wedding… a beautiful wedding gown, a groom in a suit and tie, a flower girl and ring bearer, gifts exchanged as thank yous. And I also love that at the same time there was the lack of formality – none of the hustle and bustle or stress that comes from a more traditional wedding. It was really a beautiful and joyous morning together. Thank you to Tracie and Raul for allowing me to document the joining of your lives together (and for entertaining me when I kept asking for “just one more photo” out in the freezing cold!).
