Combine a short and sweet ceremony (record time: 10 minutes!), bagpipes played by the Mayor of St. Paul (Deirdre's uncle!), two amazing families and a love story that spans almost a decade. The result? A gorgeous day at the riverfront for Deirdre + Ben's wedding day last August!

Deirdre began the day with a Facebook check-in at Mickey's Diner and a hair and makeup team that hit a home run creating a classic and timeless look. The views of the Mississippi out the windows of the Crown Plaza Riverfront were as breath-taking as her stunning gown. When I peeked into the bag, I literally mini-screamed; a bow, pleats and pockets? My dream dress come true! And as you can see, D was simply a vision in it. 

This day was truly a family affair and I am blessed to have been witness to these families finally, after a decade, combining into one. This crew really knows how to party! Keep scrolling for more proof...

Special thanks to Tony Franklin and TC Worley for working their magic on the video side - I waited several long months to see what you came up with, and here's the proof:
