Allison + Joel :: St Paul Como wedding!

#aweddingbetweentwoferns was their hashtag! :) It was a play off of their favorite TV show and their adorable humor! :) Their wedding was lush and green and full of life and happiness and LOTS and LOTS of laughing! :) I think every time I went to take a picture of Allie, her face was either plastered with a smile or she was laughing out loud! :) It was a true glimpse into their relationship and her joyful personality! :)

The day was magical! The bridal suite was full of shared stories and happy tears as Allie pulled on her dress! :) Their first look was adorable with more happy tears as Joel was just AWE STRUCK with her beauty when he first saw her! :) Her vision of lush greenery at the Como Conservatory was flawless! :) The guests were greeted in the sunshine to sit under a giant tree, that was lined with ferns underneath, to watch them exchange vows! The reception space was adorned with more fern branches, ancient coiled-up fern stems, beautiful watercoloring (done by the bride) and SURPRISE visit by one of the Zoo animals, Mr. Sloth! :) The night was a hit as people laughed at the toasts, cried at special moments and partied the night away! :)

YAY for Mr and Mrs Johnson! What a PERFECT day! :) HUGS! :)
