Real Wedding: Winter Wedding in the Cowles Conservatory

Jessica and Ryan had a wedding with both tropical warmth and winter’s blustery chill! The unique celebration was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota near the Walker Art Center. Despite the cold outdoors, it was a comfortable 80 degrees inside the gorgeous Cowles Conservatory, where the couple and their guests enjoyed the intimate occasion. The bride wore a beautiful lace and satin gown designed by Ann Taylor paired with a vintage white fur shawl that was her “something old”- it was passed down from her grandmother. With her hair done by the talented Ally Hoeben and makeup styled by Hannah Krutsch, both from Bespoke Hair Artisans, Jessica’s wedding day look was absolutely stunning. Ryan looked dashing in a traditional tuxedo and tie. What was even more beautiful than their attire, though, was the expressions of pure love and joy on the couple’s faces that Bernadette Pollard Photography captured during the precious first look. Jessica even decided to capture the bride’s “first look” reveal to her dad, and the pictures are just too cute! During the winter, Minnesota can be very, very cold, but even so the wedding party braved the plunging temperatures in their dresses and suits to take both fun and traditional photos in the glistening  snow. The pearl pink bridesmaid dresses complemented the white snow beautifully and added a great pop of color to the wintery day! The Flower Guys designed the different bouquets and floral centerpieces composed of white and pale pink roses. As the celebration continued, Jessica and Ryan enjoyed being the bartenders at the reception held at 514 Studios where the guests enjoyed a catered meal by Prom Catering and desserts made by their families! Midwest Sound provided the dancing music that closed out the special day, and the awesome pictures by Bernadette Pollard Photography show just how loving and fun Jessica and Ryan’s wedding celebration was!
