Rainy Day Minimalist Wedding in St Paul, MN

Greta and Paul were married at Paikka, an industrial-style venue in St. Paul. It’s cool because it’s got a minimalist atmosphere, but still very beautiful. We really like that look and we hadn’t shot at a place like this in the past, so it made for a fun challenge!

This wedding had a very minimalist feel to it and we loved that. The term “minimalist wedding” may have you running for the hills, but in all honesty, we love the minimalist weddings far more than those that overdue everything. Why? The stress level is usually considerably higher on couples that put an incredible amount of work into a wedding, thinking it all needs to be over the top and perfect.

This venue typically does outdoor ceremonies, but due to the raining that day, they had to have it indoors. Many may wonder what a wedding inside a warehouse would look like. Well, throw beautiful plants at the front of the aisle, as well as the love resounding through these two, and you’ll see!

The day started at Greta’s parents’ home, where they did the first look in her childhood bedroom. It was so sweet. She did a look with her dad first. If you have kids, think about that for a second and try not to cry. Her dad saw her in her wedding dress in her childhood bedroom where he had seen her grow up. Not only that, but the dress was her mother’s, altered a touch to make it a bit more modern. Grab your Kleenex.

We then took off to the Stone Arch Bridge and the venue for some more great fall photos. It was homecoming at the University of Minnesota, so we were all a little concerned about traffic, but everyone worked so well together that we had more than enough time to get everything done.

The sun made itself known as the cocktail hour began and that was just as everyone began lighting the many, many candles in the reception hall. There were so many candles. They had an incredible dinner by Brasa. We would highly recommend Brasa for any wedding! Their food was so good. One thing at this wedding that we hadn’t seen by that time was that Coffee Cart Minneapolis provided after-dinner coffee. Not just coffee, either. You could get an espresso and fancy coffee drinks. This was especially cool to me personally because I don’t drink alcohol and I’m sure there are plenty of people that come to weddings that don’t either. Having coffee as an alternative was really nice!

  1. Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
