Chris + Rebekah | Married | A Classy Downtown Minneapolis + Nicollet Island Pavilion Wedding.

April 2, 2015

Chris + Rebekah’s wedding day … my goodness, I could just write about it all day long!! The details were exquisite, the food incredible, + the bride stunning. It truly was a perfect wedding day. Everything went off exactly as planned + the venue(s) looked unbelievably gorgeous. A photographer (+ bride’s!!) dream!!

But it wasn’t about those perfect details.

Those amazing Kate Spade heels, cathedral veil, or locally-made pocket squares.

It was MUCH more than that.

The love shared between Chris + Rebekah is undeniable. It is strong, honest, + tender. It is one of those “meant-to-be” kind of loves. Everyone can see it. They can feel it. These two finally found each other + with that, their worlds made right.

Relaxing weekends at the cabin filled with good books + boat rides. Rebekah’s mom spoke at the ceremony about how their mutual love of being on the water was a passion that really bonded the two. Weekends at the cabin was where their relationship developed + love grew. A shared love + selfless pursuit of their family + friends shows in the strong relationships they have with those people in their lives. These two are so dearly loved by those around them + to an onlooker like me, it is SO easy to see why. They are authentic, joyful, + love generously. They bless others.

Chris + Rebekah … man, have you blessed us : ) Thank you for inviting us into your story + allowing us to share in such an AMAZING day with not only the two of you, but those you love most. We have no doubt that your love is only going to strengthen + deepen as the years pass by. It’s going to be so beautiful. Keep laughing like you do–those loud, real, from the heart kind of laughs. Chris, keep romancing her like you already have. Rebekah, never stop putting his interests above your own–you are so selfless that way. We love you two + are SO thankful for you : )
