A winter wonderland in Red Wing can only be made better by a St. James Hotel wedding! Katie & Jared threw in all the Christmas feels for their day, and the only thing that could have been better is for a blizzard warning to have stayed away. One thing the powerhouse weather couldn’t move is Katie & Jared’s dedication to each other. From the up lights Jared brought and designed himself, to the monogrammed velvet robes Katie gifted her ladies, this day was a dream!
Reds and Greens for a St. James Hotel Wedding
The whimsical nature of Christmas abounded at the St. James, from the gingerbread hotel to greenery adorning the railings, to the many trees beautifully dressed throughout the hotel. I love that Katie & Jared fully embraced the reds and greens! My favorite visual spots of the hotel were the entrances, which featured full pillar decor including red bows and ornaments. With snow layering the streets, Katie & Jared’s first look and portraits were literally framed in evergreen by the St. James.
Christmas in Red Wing
I would be utterly remiss if I did not point out the Red Wing connections throughout the wedding day. Katie & Jared each wore their Red Wing Shoes. Heimie’s Haberdashery served as the perfect place for the groom & groomsmen’s getting ready photos, especially with the professional pocket square assistance! Clementine Flowers, another local business located right inside the St. James, designed beautiful festive arrangements.
Katie & Jared,
You are such genuine people. You know how to put anyone at ease, and you did so on one of the coldest days in December! The delight I saw in your guests truly shows your character: welcoming and thoughtful. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture this glorious day – I hope these images are treasures! Oh, also – THANK YOU for being willing to go out in the frigid cold!
