Alison & Tianbai // Mendakota Country Club

I honestly don’t know where to begin in describing this beautiful Mendota Heights, MN wedding! From the first time that I met Tianbai and Alison, I knew that their wedding day was going to be extra sweet. The kindness and love that they show one another and everyone around them is beautiful to witness! Add to that their great sense of humor and they are pretty much a flawless couple!

The bridal room at the Mendakota Country Club was an elegant setting for the wedding party to get ready in. With large windows overlooking the pristine grounds and golf course, the light-filled space added to the atmosphere of joy and anticipation!

Speaking of joy, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a groom smile broader than Tianbai did when he first saw his bride in her gown! Just look for the pictures of their first-look, and you can see that he was thrilled with what he saw! It was one of my favorite moments of their day.

Favorite moments are hard to find for this day though since every moment was breathtaking! From the beautiful grounds of the Mendakota Country Club, to the classy and super fun wedding party (these guys kept us laughing all day!), to the sweet way that each parent was acknowledged and honored during the wedding ceremony, to the way both Alison and Tianbai teared up during their vows, it was a day full of favorite moments. One moment that sticks out as a very most favorite though is the moment just after they were pronounced husband and wife and started back down the aisle. All of a sudden they were surrounded by a cloud of bubbles, which emphasized perfectly the joy of that moment! It was glorious!

Alison and Tianbai, from start to finish your day was amazing! You are both a pure delight to be around, and could not be more amazing in front of a camera. May your entire marriage be as filled with joy and love as your wedding day was!

xo, Nikole
