Julie + Manny | Bringing a little New York to Saint Paul
Since moving from New York City to Minnesota, I’ve experienced a variety of wedding traditions that are new to me. Like the Dollar Dance (google it, New Yorkers) or bar hopping with the bridal party (definitely not a bad thing). In other instances, I miss wedding traditions from the east coast. One good example is the introductions – here they call them the Grand March. On the east coats it’s always the biggest deal when the bride and groom are introduced for the first time at the reception, and it’s only after the entire bridal party had been introduced. To me, this is by far the most exciting moment of the whole day: To see the bride and groom enter the room to everyone’s cheers and music, then going into their first dance. It’s the realization of everything they dreamed of – it’s the beginning of the party.
Julie and Manny were introduced. And their day, was filled with little touches of New York style – probably because Manny is from there:) Their day was meticulously planned, and was full of elegance. From the ceremony at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, to the stunning Landmark Center, these guys didn’t settle on anything less than amazing. The two historic landmarks provided the backdrop for their beautiful day and a new beginning! Thank you Julie and Manny for your hospitality and for letting me document your celebrations! Thank you Brooke for your help!
Congrats to Julie and Manny!
