There is something special about a small town wedding. Bride and groom, Sarah and Joshua, found the charm in this option in the river town of Red Wing, Minnesota with the St. James Hotel from the National Registrar of Historic Places as their venue. They discovered how convenient the localized option is in that you can get everything you need within a couple miles – from getting ready, to capturing stunning photos, adventuring with your wedding party, the ceremony itself, all the way to the final dance. Their Bellagala Photographer Travis (Minneapolis, Wedding Photography Prices) was able to capture the small-town features through his stunning photography. See how you can take advantage of a pretty little city to create your own winning wedding affair.
