Wedding Photography in New Brighton | Tony + Irena’s November Wedding

Tony & Irena’s New Brighton Wedding

We started off our wedding photography in New Brighton at  St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.  Irena and her daughters prepared for the wedding in a quiet back room.  With the church decorated for Advent, candles burned brightly and the whole reception had a cozy feel.  The couple chose to not see each other before the wedding.  So, we didn’t do a lot of editorial or lifestyle type portraits.   Rather, the main purpose of photography for this day was documenting the real moments of the ceremony and reception.

Wedding Photography in New Brighton To Capture a Modern Catholic Ceremony

St. John the Baptist church has a modern sanctuary with a minimalist design.  The candle pillars are like columns.  The walls are adorned in light-colored brick, which makes the sanctuary feel open and airy.  So, the architecture of the church, combined with lighting design at the altar that is a bit dramatic gave an artistic look to their ceremony.  With it being Advent season too, they had unique ceremony pictures.

Wedding Reception at the Lowell Inn, Stillwater.

After the ceremony finished we traveled to Stillwater where the couple had a small reception, including champagne, creme brulee, and a personal sized wedding cake.  Tony and Irena sat at the front of the reception with a Christmas tree behind them, where they could enjoy watching all their guests celebrate.
