Alexandra + Jared

October 7, 2017
Ceremony - Irvine Park | St. Paul, MN
Reception - The Happy Gnome | St. Paul, MN

Alexandra and Jared’s wedding day was filled with St. Paul charm from start to finish. Their wedding style was relaxed, romantic, and highlighted their pup, Dugan, who made numerous appearances throughout the day (note the cocktail napkins!). If you ask us, wedding days should always include four legged friends.  

The couple said their emotional “I dos” at an intimate ceremony in St. Paul's historic Irvine Park against the backdrop of a flowing fountain and setting autumn sun. Irvine Park was easily one of our favorite ceremony venues of the year!

Just before their ceremony began, groomsmen carried in a few benches for guests (built by the bride's brother!), a small sound system was set up, and they were ready to get married! It was like a pop-up wedding—kept simple and beautiful—with towering oak trees and gorgeous historic homes surrounding them on all sides. 

Alexandra and Jared’s siblings were peppered throughout various wedding day roles including officiant, readers, and toasts which added special significance to many of the words spoken over the newlyweds. As light faded from the park, the happy couple retreated to The Happy Gnome to enjoy a candle-lit dinner alongside cherished family and friends. Theirs was the kind of wedding day we live for being a part of!
