A year ago, we had the privilege of photographing Arvind and Hana’s proposal and engagement here in Portland. They were on vacation in Portland when he proposed, and she said yes. We love proposal photography!
So we were super excited when they asked us to come and photograph their wedding in St. Cloud, Minnesota! When we first met Hana and Arvind after stalking them through Hoyt Arboretum to catch Arvind popping the question, we all became fast friends.
Arvind is a smart guy with a sweet disposition and his love for Hana is apparent the moment you see him looking at her. Hana on the other hand is a strong boisterous gal with lots of love and attitude to spare, but in front of Arvind she melts away into nothing but smiles and laugher.
These two planned the entire wedding themselves, and what a wedding it was! It was held at the beautiful 912 Plaza in downtown St. Cloud, on the luckiest of late January days. Normally temperatures at this time can be as low as 20 degrees and we lucked out with it being in the high 30’s. We were so happy as this venue has a beautiful raised outdoor deck, and the downtown area was a great backdrop for some of our images.
Everything for this wedding went beautifully! Arvind and Hana said I do in front of their closest family and friends. From the receiving line to the heartfelt toasts, everyone was feeling the love in the room. And it didn’t stop there! This group kept going well into the evening, making good use of the photo booth and cutting it up on the dance floor.
