Day Block Event Center Wedding // Minneapolis Wedding Venues

A Day Block Event Center Wedding

One of the best Minneapolis Wedding Venues in the heart of Downtown

This was my first Day Block Event Center wedding (one of the best Minneapolis wedding venues) and I enjoyed the venue immensely.  Mick & Keely’s wedding day had a unique broad assortment of weather details.  It started off as a rainy August day, and later gave way to a beautiful molten sunset for golden hour.  The wedding was resplendent with so many wonderful details by Artemisia Studios.  It had all the special elements that make late summer weddings really great.

Loring Park Wedding Portraits

We had multiple portrait stops for this wedding.  This is beneficial because it adds variety to the final collection.  There is an excellent garden at the center of the park, where we took bridal party portraits.  I love blending in natural element in all my outdoor portraits.  It is important to try to make sure the image isn’t too “busy”, though.  This shot of Mick by the birch tree is one of my favorite groom shots from last year.  It’s clear, simple and genuine, with just a few tones in the background.

I like family portraits to be joyful and candid.  My favorite portraits from this section of the day tend to be the more candid ones.  You can see examples of this above and below.

Guthrie Theater Wedding Photos

We also went over to the Guthrie Theater Amber Room to take some more bride and groom portraits.  This was my first time shooting wedding portraits at the Guthrie and I really enjoyed it.  You can see that it was an opportunity to focus on the wonderful silhouette of the couple.

Day Block Event Center Wedding Ceremony

That moment where the groom walks his mother to her seat can be a very emotional one.  I love this shot above of Mick and his mother.  You can really see the love there.  Moments at the ceremony with the parents are typically very emotional moments.  I try to capture those emotional moments before they pass.

Cocktail Hour and the Reception at Day Block

Artemisia Studios really did produce some of the most stunning tablescapes and floral for this wedding.  If you’re looking for a Minneapolis wedding planner or floral services, I’d definitely check them out.  The styling for this wedding was lush and dreamy.

Minneapolis Wedding Venues // Day Block

This Day Block Event Center wedding featured some very interesting light for cocktail hour.   One of the things that makes Day Block one of the best Minneapolis wedding venues is the large windows it has, letting light stream in.  Cocktail hour is always a good time to capture those candid snapshots.  And the sun is usually on it’s way to setting around this time, making for excellent lighting conditions.  Every Day Block Event Center wedding I’ve shot has featured these types of bride and groom golden hour portraits. The lighting here was just perfect.  The sun and the sky colors were just gorgeous around that time before sunset.
