Here is another wedding I was fortunate enough to photograph with Jessica Smith of Jessica Smith Photography. You can check out her amazing work at http://www.jessicasmithphoto.com/ She has just been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 Pick for the 2nd year in a row! Go, Jes!
This wedding was particularly fun! Ashley and Matt (the lovely bride and groom) were having their reception at the University of Minnesota! I’ve never been on their campus before, so it was quite a treat. There were so many beautiful places to take pictures, and Jessica seemed to find them all!
This was one of the most exciting receptions I have been to. Jes told me that the bride and groom were both U of M alumni and so were their parents. It seemed to make sense why the reception would take place there. BUT the funnest thing was what the bride did for her groom. She had secretly arranged for a very unique “gift” for her new husband. Shortly after the dancing had started a special guest arrived. That’s right! Goldie the Gopher made his grand entrance! The look on the groom’s face was priceless! It really was such a special moment, and I’m so blessed to have been able to document it. Goldie stayed and celebrated with the newled couple and guests. He danced the night away and the flowergirl became his new best friend. It was SUPER FUN!!!
