Turtle Fountain Nuptials | Minneapolis Wedding {Andrea + Rodrigo}

 

There’s nothing like a perfect summer day in Minneapolis for a wedding, especially when you’re getting married at the Turtle Fountain in Gateway Park.

The flowers, blue sky, and bubbling waters of the fountain offered Andrea & Rodrigo the perfect backdrop to tie the knot. After so many years together, family & friends were delighted to be present for their beautiful ceremony & the rockin’ fiesta that followed.
