Winter Wedding at the Steeple Center

Weddings

I will always love a good winter wedding. The lighting and snow just make for the most gorgeous portraits. I even made a list of my favorite winter wedding venues in Minnesota because I love them just that much! Brianna and Devon’s wedding only solidified what I already loved. Check out some of my favorites from Brianna and Devon’s Steeple Center wedding below.Brianna and Devon’s winter Steeple Center wedding was a classy, timeless affair. These two have been through all the ups and downs of trying to plan a winter wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their original wedding date was in December of 2020, but pandemic restrictions canceled that. They ended up having an intimate outdoor ceremony in Rice Park in Saint Paul on their original date and postponed the reception to December 2021. I was lucky enough to be a part of both gorgeous days!

Brye and Devon’s rescheduled reception took place the week before Christmas, and they leaned into this for their decor. They used evergreens, Christmas lights, and candles to decorate, which made the whole day feel so cozy!

Brianna and I attended high school together and our older sisters were close friends growing up. When I met Devon, we all created an instant bond. Devon is a band director in Minnesota, just like my husband is! Since Brianna is also a singer, they incorporated a lot of musical touches into their wedding day. The table numbers were made with sheet music, and a big band of the couple’s friends played for the reception. It was so fun, classy, and perfect for the holiday season.

The Steeple Center was an amazing venue for this winter wedding. It is a converted historical church that now functions as a performance space and event venue. Not only does it have the perfect stage for the band, but it’s a classy, cozy spot. The staff there were wonderful and so helpful. I hope I have another opportunity to photograph there in the future!

One of my favorite moments of the day was when Brianna and Devon’s dog came by for a few photos. Minnie (short for Minerva) is named after Minerva McGonagall in Harry Potter. How cute is that! Speaking of Harry Potter, the couple went to Disney for a week right after their wedding for the honeymoon. They went to Harry Potter World and Brianna gifted Devon an experience to make his own lightsaber at the Star Wars park. How cool is that?!
