Cecelia + Taylor | American Swedish Institute | Minneapolis, MN

Posted in: Photography

Man oh man, where to even begin with this wedding?! I guess I could go through each and every moment (see video to understand joke – my husband told me to put this btw). Celia is my (beautiful, graceful, kind) cousin who has been my friend since birth (hers obviously). I decided a year prior to her wedding that I was going to be her photographer, only I really didn’t want to, so I told her I would second shoot if her photographer allowed. In true little cousin form, she copied my photographer choice (Claire Murray Photography) and I saw no point in being a 3rd shooter (Claire’s amazing husband is her 2nd) so I decided to take up videography… that morning (like I Googled “How to video a wedding” at 5:00 AM the morning of the wedding).

You see, Celia may be my younger cousin who copies my photographer choice, but in reality, I have always looked up to her. Her kind demeanor, ability to listen, like really listen, and thoughtfulness has always been so admirable. Celia is the embodiment of poise (like seriously, just a week before her wedding she was giving me a lesson on how to sit up straight) and her character is one I have always admired. She cares so well for everyone she meets and her ability to listen to others is unmatched.

I knew I liked this Taylor kid when I found out he was a cross country runner, but it was confirmed even more as I spent time with him and saw his goofy personality, pure adoration for Celia and persistent attitude for anything he wants. Throughout the wedding it was echoed that you simply can’t have a bad time around Taylor and I can definitely attest to that.

Celia and Taylor, thank you for letting me be a part of your stunning day. It is one I will not be forgetting anytime soon. ❤️

Here’s to your forever 🥂
