Carly + Robert : Love Louder Than Thunder

Carly and Robert brought their hip NYC vibe to Minnesota to wed at The Chambers Hotel. (The Minnesota connection: Carly grew up in Australia, but her parents live in Rochester now).

Carly and Robert both effortlessly exude chic style. Carly and her bridesmaids all wore custom designed dresses from the designer Avion Feminin. Carly’s Lanvin heels were to die for! And she wore amazing earrings and a cuff bracelet from the jewelry designer Erickson Beamon. Robert looked so sharp in his Brooks Brothers suit. And I just loved his lime green socks!

We had so much fun with big red balloons and moustaches on sticks during our photo time with the wedding party at Gold Medal Park. And, then we released the balloons off of the Nicollet Island Iron Bridge.

Carly and Robert’s custom letterpress invitations from Mr. Boddington’s Studio featured a map highlighting Minneapolis landmarks. The calligraphy on the invitation envelopes and place/menu cards by Queen Quills was exquisite.

After a gourmet dinner by D’Amico in the art gallery of Chambers Hotel, guests made their way upstairs to the rooftop lounge for dancing. The very talented DJ Steve spun creative mix that kept the dance floor packed.

The phrase “Love Louder Than Thunder” that was in their program has really stuck with me, that is so powerful.

Thank you Carly and Robert for having me document your beautiful wedding. May your love always feel louder than thunder.

Robert Schmaltz - Fantastic! Thank you so much for shooting our wedding. These photos really brought the event to life for us again!

Oh, you’ve made us so happy.Really. Really really.

With the celebration behind us now we’ve both been missing it and are some part saddened by the fact that nothing quite like that will ever happen again. There will be other great celebrations for other living mile markers, but not that day again. There have been not just dozens but seemingly hundreds of photos that have surfaced on the web from the event. None of them have had the same effect as these. These photos have taken us back into the heart of the event. The character, the fun, the emotions. Touching, exciting, and reviving.

Your eye, in capturing the moment so well, has now created a kind of magic. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Lenora Schmaltz - Maribeth,
I’m having trouble with what words to use to express how thrilled I am with these pictures. I feel like I’ve been brought right back into those moments and can feel the ones where I wasn’t even present.

Your gift with a camera is well, just that a gift. Thank you for this and thank you for this post… it came a great time for me as I’m doing a radiation treatment now and these pictures made my heart smile.

Thank you for the magic!
