PAIKKA Associate Wedding | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer | Hannah + Daniel


PAIKKA wedding shot by our talented associate, Aurora! <3 

Thursday weddings: our team has THREE of them this year!! I just had one this past week and my associate Aurora got to be a part of Hannah and Daniel's Thursday Minneapolis wedding at PAIKKA this June. I'm personally a huge advocate for them - it may be so I have more Saturdays free ;) but it's also just the intimate feel. The people who are there are the KEY people in the bride and groom's lives. The people that wouldn't miss their day for the world, and I think that's super special! Intimate weddings are my fave. 

I met Hannah and Daniel for ice cream at Milkjam Creamery for their engagement sesh just a week before their wedding day! SUCH sweet photos to look back on, knowing the joy and anticipation they had to have felt looking forward to their day.  It was only fitting that they had the MNice Cream truck at their reception! They were blindfolded before the ceremony and tied their love for swing dancing into their first dance. 

Here's a peek into this sweet couple's day!
