I adore the bright, bold green hues used throughout this wedding! Captured by Erin Johnson Photography, Hallie and Kirby were married on a stunning May day in a Lutheran church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following the ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to the unique alumni center at the University of Minnesota for a fun, travel themed reception. I especially love the guest seating map!
A few words from the bride:
Kirby and I met in college at College of St. Benedict / St. John’s University in Minnesota. We were organic chemistry lab partners (insert joke about us having chemistry here). While in college we both studied abroad and fell in love with traveling, which inspired the theme of our wedding.
The focus of our wedding was our family and friends that were joining us to celebrate the start of our married life together. We are blessed to have so many amazing people in our life and we really wanted to have a fun party with all of them and so we focused a lot on our “guest experience”. I wanted the wedding to feel classic, comfortable, and personalized. We tried to incorporate a lot about us through our travel theme. Our wedding was a great day/night, the highlights were our venue, our photographer, and DJ, the dance floor was packed all night!
