The Lumber Exchange Minneapolis, Minnesota Wedding | Nick and Jenna

High school sweethearts got married this past weekend!! Jenna heard through the grapevine that Nick liked her and the rest is history. ;) I absolutely love when I can capture a relationship where the bride and groom have literally grown up together. Jenna and Nick’s friendship is so deep + they’re so evidently the perfect duo. So much so that I kept HAVING to tell them how perfect they are for each other, as if they didn’t already know. ;)

Not only that, they’re such a genuine, fun couple that is focused on making people laugh + feel loved.

We started their day at Hewing Hotel where they read letters back to back before seeing each other (literally no dry eye was watching that moment), wandered the North Loop for bridal party photos, drove down to their hometown of Lakeville for the ceremony, + drove back to Minneapolis to the Lumber Exchange for the cocktail hour + reception.

It was such an honor to get to know these two throughout this season. Love the incredible people I get to meet in this job. <3 Honestly SOO sad we’re done working together now!

Here’s a sneak into their day + a couple I’ll always remember!
