Wedding: October 4, 2014 Photographer: Lace/Hanky Photography Ceremony and reception: Minneapolis Event Center, Minneapolis honeymoon: South America
Richa Gupta and Ryan Stoer had a missed connection when they worked at the same Minneapolis advertising agency. Eventually fate caught up with them, however, when they started chatting at an industry event. Ryan charmed Richa (chatting about his love for cats didn’t hurt), and soon after the pair started dating. Fast-forward a few years and the couple exchanged vows at the newly renovated Minneapolis Event Center. Since they were one of the first couples to host a wedding there, they were able to help choose some of the space’s design details. “With the beautiful exposed wood beams, wall-to-wall windows in the atrium and the awesome planning staff, we couldn’t have picked a more fitting venue that matched our personalities and vibe of the event we wanted,” Richa says.
