What was going to be a downtown St Anthony wedding pivoted to an intimate backyard ceremony with friends and family for 2020. Alec and Lauren decided to venture to the Springbrook Nature Center and do their first look at what I refer to as “the true love bridge” as this was the bridge they strolled along on one of their earliest dates and Alec realized he was really starting to fall for this girl and true love had struck him.
We then headed back to the gorgeous homemade ceremony site decked out with lights and decor to get these two hitched among family and friends masked up and ready to go.
Those closest to the couple were able to attend to help setup and bear witness to this sweet backyard ceremony and there was a live stream feed for those who couldn't attend in person.
A full wedding was wonderfully condensed into 4 hours in one quaint backyard and it turned out perfect.
