<![CDATA[ Nothing but sunshine and smiles for Alissa and David’s Great Gatsby inspired wedding at Van Dusen Mansion in Minneapolis, MN. Alissa looked stunning in her birdcage veil and lace mermaid wedding gown! Oh my goodness, it was so much fun to capture the movement of this dress during the dance! One of my favorite parts of a Van Dusen wedding is all of the spots for wedding photos! We got portraits throughout the rooms of this Minneapolis mansion, in front of the mansion, in the driveway, and under the gazebo. For brides, there is a stunning bridal suite with a mannequin to put your dress on, full-length mirrors, a chandelier, a fireplace, and antique furniture. For Alissa and David’s wedding, we did the first look in the small ceremony room on the top floor of the mansion. They both shed some tears! They had their ceremony in the courtyard of the unusually warm April sunshine.
