Bri & Ty // Stonewall Farms, Willmar, MN Wedding Photography

Their story starts at a wedding. Bri was invited. Ty was a wedding crasher. A few months later, they were both in a wedding for Bri’s friend and Ty’s cousin. As bridesmaid and groomsmen, they walked down the aisle together. Fast forward through months of long distance dating (SD & WI/MN), lots of adventurous dates, and plenty of state park visits (25+ different parks) Bri and Ty decided to walk down another aisle as two individuals and back up the aisle as one; husband and wife. They have a Christ centered relationship and it was truly beautiful to witness and capture the moments when their lives became permanently intertwined.

Stonewall Farms in Willmar, MN is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. It was perfect for Bri and Ty’s love of the outdoors. The tall pines above, the bed of needles underfoot with the romantic bistro lights suspended in between made for a super dreamy ceremony location. Guests could easily enjoy the grounds with the horses, yard games and slight breeze with dinner under a large tent before heading to the barn for dancing (a few polka dances per the bride’s family traditions) and s’mores to finish the night off right.

Bri & Ty, I wish you two all the best in your lives together. I know together you guys will do great and wonderful things for this world. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your story and to capture the love that you share. Congratulations!

Mark & Stephanie // Eco-Friendly Wedding at Double R Farms in Osceola, WI

Stephanie is apart of a company called Trades of Hope. The mission of the company is to empower women by teaching them artistic trades and have compassionate entrepreneurs, like Stephanie, sell their fair trade jewelry, home decor and other accessories. This helps women get out of working in sweatshops, be subject to human trafficking, abusive situations and poverty. So it was a no surprise when Stephanie also planned an eco-friendly, fair-trade, local business based wedding in Osceola, WI. Every vendor, from her shoes to her florist, came from a company that supplied local, sustainable or repurposed products and services. (See vendor list below for specifics).

Stephanie and Mark met through mutual friends and since their first date, where they went bowling, they have been adventuring in the great outdoors (including a kayaking trip where Mark proposed) and sharing in life together. Their wedding ceremony was set to be outside overlooking a corn field and pasture at Double R Farms in Osceola, but mother nature had it’s own plans for the day. The wind was fierce all morning and the air stifling hot and humid. At the last minute they moved the ceremony inside the barn, which was a great call for as soon as Stephanie’s dads were walking her down the aisle, a huge clap of thunder sounded and rain came down in sheets. By the end of the ceremony the storm had passed, cooling the air and making way for beautiful clouds and sunset which we took full advantage of for photos.

Congratulations Mark and Stephanie. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share in your day! Enjoy your photos. :D
