This week Graddy Photography made our way over to Marshall, Minnesota to cover the Red Baron Ice Arena.  The Red Baron Ice Arena and Expo Center is home to many amateur local sports.  This place is simply stunning!  Wenck Construction nailed it once again!  We are so incredibly thankful to work with such a great collective team of consummate professionals that care passionately about their work…and it shows.  No stone left unturned here.

Well that was fun!  What an amazing wedding to end the year, our last big one I should say.  Steph and Court tied the knot this past Saturday at The Cathedral of St. Paul with their reception to follow at the historic James J. Hill Library in downtown St. Paul.  We started the day with getting ready photos at The Saint Paul Hotel and then onto Rice Park for the couple’s first glimpse.  A few quick photos in front of James J. Hill Library then off to the church to get married.  After the ceremony the couple rented a trolley and hit up a couple local watering holes, namely the Happy Gnome and The Bulldog in Mears Park.  Finally, it was back to the reception at the library.  Great speeches and toasts were given.  Why one of the groomsmen took it upon himself to grab the mic and tell the entire audience that he peed his pants at an Air B & B at the bachelor party is beyond me…..good stuff.  Steph and Court, you guys simply rock and loved working with you both.  I really enjoyed meeting both you families as well.  Thanks so much for including Graddy Photography in your wedding day plans.  We wish you both the absolute best and a happy life in Chicago!
