It’s been a bit more of a challenge to get a blog post up of some of my favorite pictures from Erin and Matt’s wedding. I was about 35 weeks pregnant while shooting their wedding, 36 weeks pregnant while editing their photos and now I’m the mom of a beautiful 7 pound, 6 ounce little guy named William Joseph who unexpectedly made an early appearance on Friday, September 11. In fact, I’m typing this in my hospital room and was working on this blog post before a routine prenatal appointment became a non stress test in the hospital, which in turn became an emergency c-section. Happy to say we’re both doing well and going home today.
Erin and Matt were married in a small ceremony performed by Matt’s father in the backyard of his parent’s Mendota Heights home. The hot sun and humidity of the day kept the ceremony on the short side. Following the ceremony guests gathered at the Country Inn & Suites Bloomington West’s 5120 Restaurant & Onyx Bar for the reception. They were greeted by air conditioning, a cocktail hour and dinner in a lovely marbled floored dining area and cozy bar. After the tables were cleared, the venue was opened up for some dancing and fun.
