When a love story starts out with a boy meeting a girl on a trip to Italy, you just KNOW you are going to want to be there for their wedding!
First off, when I saw Clara’s wedding dress I just wanted to give it a big hug- It was so beautiful! …but I just took some photos of it and her wonderful veil instead. Mother and sister helped the lovely Clara into the beautiful gown and put on the finishing touches so Clara could go and see her anxious groom.
We arrived at Our Lady of Victory Chapel where Zach stood on top of church steps and patiently waited to see his bride for the first time. Nothing is as wonderful as the expression of happiness from grooms setting eyes on their bride for the first time!
The ceremony was held in one of the most beautiful churches in Minnesota! The beautiful stone work and window light made for a wonderful setting. As Clara’s mother and father walked her down the isle, there was nothing but smiles from everyone around.
One of the most noticible characteristics of this beautiful couple were there laughs! Seriously the best combination of the day was Clara’s grin and Zach’s giggles hands down.
After the ceremony we all piled into the Hummer Limo and went downtown to The Windows on Minnesota.
I always tell my couples that after the, “I do’s” it’s all just a big party…and party they did!
Clara and Zach, cheers for finding love in foreign lands and I wish you luck on all of your adventures to come!
