Nora and David | The Lumber Exchange | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

The Lumber Exchange in downtown Minneapolis, MN artfully weds cool city textures with sleek, chic elegance and makes for the perfect venue for modern weddings. This was oh so clear at Nora and David’s July 2019 wedding.

The day started with the most hilarious first look ever! Together, Nora and her wedding party schemed together and somehow procured a dinosaur costume. One of their groomsmen wore it and walked towards an unsuspecting David. David turned around and…everyone broke into belly laughs!

Patting David on the back I said, “ok now for the real first look.”

That joke speaks to how carefree and fun Nora and David are. They were full of laughs throughout the ridiculously hot and humid July day and were ready to party as soon as they said their “I Dos.”

And party they did! With a big bite of their Cinnabon cinnamon roll (who said you have to have cake or cupcakes for your dessert?!) they hit the dance floor with a sweet choreographed first number.

My team and I had so much fun working with Nora, David, and their whole wedding party. I know these two lovebirds are in for a very bright, fun, and love-filled future!!
