Chris + Molly | JX Event Venue Wedding Stillwater Wedding Photographer
Chris + Molly were married on a rainy fall day in Stillwater, Minnesota. I first met Chris + Molly when they came to Wausau from the Twin Cities for their engagement session this past winter. We had just gotten around 12 inches of snow a few days before their session, and everything looked so beautiful. You can view their beautiful session here. We were so excited to be going back to Stillwater for another wedding. We have shot a few weddings in Stillwater in the past, and it’s such a lovely area. Chris + Molly chose the Church of St. Michaels in Stillwater, while their reception was at the stunning JX Event Venue in downtown Stillwater. It was such a gorgeous JX Event Venue Wedding, and we feel so lucky to have been able to celebrate Chris + Molly’s special day with them.
We have shot weddings at the Church of St. Michaels in Stillwater before. The last time we were there was back in January, and it was honestly around 30 degrees below zero that day. So a warm 70 degree day for Chris + Molly’s wedding was a welcome change. Even though it rained for the later half of Chris + Molly’s wedding, we were able to get the two of them outdoors for some gorgeous photos outside the JX Event Venue before the rain started. After the ceremony, they were even brave enough to go out in the rain for a bit to get a few shots overlooking the river.
JX Event Venue is one of the most stunning venues we’ve had the pleasure of shooting at. The venue has an industrial feel, with touches of elegance all around. Amazing chandeliers that hang all throughout the venue, along with chiavari chairs, bring elegance to the warehouse feel. Exposed brick walls and unfinished ceilings add to the industrial side of the venue, while original wood floors lend an almost historic feel. It is minimally furnished and decorated so that couples can come in and really make it their own. And on top of the overall stunning appeal of the venue, it has beautiful natural light; a huge plus for photographers. Chris + Molly decorated the venue with wild fall florals and soft neutral colors; Everything flowed perfectly. It was such a fun celebration of love, and Chris + Molly couldn’t have been any sweeter. We had such a wonderful time celebrating with Chris, Molly, and their families and friends.
