Andrea and Jake

It's a rainy day here in Grand Forks. A rainy day in February in North Dakota is very rare ... and it causes a lot of problems! In the office today we've got a leaky roof because of all the rain and frozen gutters. Our parking lot is an ice skating rink and the roads are, well, completely un-drivable. So ... it's been a good day :)  
 
I don't have any photos of the ice to show you, but -- even better! -- I've got wedding photos to show you :) 
 
Our first wedding of 2009 was a festival celebration in and around St. Paul, MN, for Andrea and Jake! It was a gorgeous winter day that got a little snowy during the reception. We spent the morning with Andrea and the girls as they got ready, then moved to the church for the ceremony, then headed over to downtown St. Paul for some fun outdoor photos! The reception was held at The Great Hall and it was stunning :)  
 
Here's Andrea in the morning, all smiles :)

Married!
Andrea's sister led the guests in a kissing game. Any time glasses were clinked, a couple's name was drawn and that couple had to answer a question about Andrea and Jake. If their answer was correct, then Andrea and Jake would kiss. If they got it wrong, then the couple would have to kiss. It was a cute idea!

Andrea and Jake were willing to go outside, in the dark and in the snow, for some portraits during their reception. This is my favorite shot of the day!
