Is there anything more nerve wracking than photographing another wedding photographer’s daughter’s wedding? I think NOT! When my good friend and fellow photographer Catherine Golden asked me if I would photograph Ali’s wedding, I think I must have asked her, “Are you sure?”
Ali and Matt met at the University of St. Thomas. According to her dad’s toast, the very first time Matt came to the Golden’s house, her dad looked at him and said, “WOW – you two would make pretty babies!” This was a very astute observation; they could pose for the cake topper bride and groom 🙂
The beautiful couple, the church (Hennepon Avenue Methodist), the reception at Golden Valley Country Club and all the fabulous extra touches that Ali and her mom worked on for the past year made for a spectacular wedding. I can honestly say this has been the year for out-of-this-world weddings. I have been a very happy wedding photographer in 2012!
Ali and Matt were very good sports: They posed outdoors for many photos both at the church and at Golden Valley CC. It was a very COLD day, but at least the predicted rain did not fall. They and their friends were so happy and ready to party, I don’t think they even noticed the temperature! Here are some of the fun pics from the day. And I broke my rule of only putting 20 photos on the blog…
