Capturing Ben and Adam’s American Swedish Institute was one of the highlight’s of our wedding season. The love these two have for each other is so perfect, and we loved getting to tell their story!
The Wedding Couple
We got lucky with these two. Ben and Adam are a perfect pair. They are so sweet and gentle, always holding hands and ALWAYS laughing together. These two contacted us just shortly before their wedding, after deciding that they did indeed want a wedding film, and we are so glad they did!
The Venue – American Swedish Institute | Minneapolis, MN
This was our first time shooting an American Swedish Institute wedding and it absolutely blew us away. We’d be lying if we said we knew anything about it beforehand, but it has quickly become one of our favorite venues in the area. It is an amazing blend of history and old school architecture, along with modern design and a sleek building attached to the original mansion.
The Wedding – American Swedish Insitute Wedding
Wow. That is our first reaction looking back on this day. We had the amazing venue, perfect couple, dream team of vendors, and a teriffic group of friends and family. We made sure to get to the American Swedish Institute early to capture the amazing property, and then were met by Ben and Adam, as well as their wedding party.
After a brief break to relax and get ready for the day, we started by allowing these two to share a beautiful moment right on the front steps of the mansion. It was the perfect time for these two to take a deep breath, and just be together for a moment before the craziness of the day set it. A bit later we started with couples shots of these two all around the grounds, starting with an impromptu glass of champagne out on the patio. Afterwards we grabbed the wedding party and family to take photos with Ben and Adam, and then everyone took a breif break before the ceremony.
The ceremony location was amazing. Out on the front lawn, of the mansion friends and family gathered to cheer these two on and they became officially MARRIED!!! After the ceremony, guests were invited into the mansion for cocktails while Ben and Adam slipped out with us to take some amazing shots overlooking the Minneapolis sky line. They got back in time for the end of cocktail hour and then everyone transitioned to the wonderfully decorated reception area for an amazing dinner, complemented by some fantastic toasts.
When dinner wrapped up, everyone went downstairs to watch these two share their first dance, and then join in and dance the night away as the live band played!
We were so thrilled to be asked to capture Ben and Adam’s Swedish Institute wedding and absolutely loved getting to tell their story!
