Ashley & Derek’s Downtown Minneapolis Wedding

Ashley and Derek got engaged in a ball pit. Yes, a plasticky, colorful, kid’s ball pit. I don’t know if I’ve heard a more original proposal story, and I wish I’d been there to see it (and take pictures!) I can’t image a more fun and playful atmosphere to pop the question…. Maybe a room filled with balloons? Anyway, if that doesn’t paint the picture of how fun these two were to work with on their wedding day, I’m not sure what will.

Ashley and Derek had their wedding at the Le Meridien Chambers hotel in downtown Minneapolis. I absolutely love taking urban wedding photos downtown, because our city is so colorful. We got some great first look pictures and bridal portraits in front of this bright red brick building, the bride and groom photos are filled with blues, greys and purples from our world famous skyway system, and the wedding party took a quick limo ride over to Loring Park for some group pictures among the green trees and up on the iconic blue and yellow Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge that leads over “spaghetti junction” to the Walker Sculpture Garden.

Ashley and Derek were a blast to work with! They appreciated my approach and attempts at humor…

“Preston is a hoot! He’s so fun to work with. And he comes with his camera bags packed with mini liquor bottles to calm nerves, or in my case, warm me up from the cold!!!” -Ashley

Congratulations Ashley and Derek! Enjoy your wedding photos!
