Fall Minnesota Wedding

Abby + TChad-Tu | The 3 Ten Event Venue | Faribault, MN

The 3 Ten Event Venue – Downtown Faribault, MN

Abby and TChad-Tu’s fall Minnesota wedding was so special for me. I worked at Starkey as a graphic designer where I met Abby. We knew each other for over 2 years when she asked me to be their wedding photographer. I was living in San Diego already but was flying back every other week during wedding season as a photographer. I am so honored that she asked me and I could not wait to capture their fall Minnesota wedding.

Abby and TChad-Tu decided on The 3 Ten Event Venue as their wedding venue in Faribault, MN. Watching two of your friends marry each other is such a rare and beautiful thing to witness as a photographer.

As I post these photos, I vividly remember all the emotions everyone had. TChad-Tu who did not sleep very much the night before so he was nervous and excited. Abby could not believe the day had finally come for their fall Minnesota wedding. Watching the emotions across Abby’s face as she realized that today had come and that she is a bride now, to seeing her mom tear up as her veil is put on. Getting to capture these tender memories is why I love being a wedding and elopement photographer. I get to forever encapsulate those memories for my couples to cherish forever.

First Look – Fall Minnesota Wedding

First looks are such a great way to have a private and intimate moment with your partner. Above all, it allows us to get your photos all done so you have more time with guests after your ceremony. In addition, it is easier to wrangle everyone for photos rather than after the ceremony. Everyone tries to pull you and the bridal party in all different directions to talk.
