Brandi & Nathan // River Falls & Hudson, WI Wedding

There is so much to say about this couple and this wedding. Wow! I could talk about how Nathan and Brandi met exactly eleven years to the day before their wedding day. I could mention how they currently live in Omaha but chose to tie the knot in Wisconsin, since they grew up in Minnesota and Wisconsin. And how they picked the ceremony location based on images I had taken years before. I could go on and on about the numerous details and decorations that went into their wedding day that really helped tell the story of who they are as a couple and their journey together up to the wedding day. Everything from the bride’s dress being created by and worn by her grandmother during the Great Depression, and also worn by Brandi’s mother to the fun facts about the couple placed at every table seat. Then we can talk about the perfect weather they had for their photos and outdoor ceremony at Prospect Park in Hudson. Crisp, beautiful fall day with the sun shining as the leaves on the trees were just starting to turn color. Of course, I cannot forget to talk about how awesome their wedding “cake” was! Cheese wheels! How perfect for a Wisconsin wedding and yummy it was served as an appetizer during happy hour. Mostly, I cannot fail to mention that Nathan and Brandi were just smitten with each other all day and are just head over heals for one another. Like I said, I could go on and on telling you the story of their beautiful wedding day, but I hope my photographs tell you more. Congratulations Nathan and Brandi! May your love for life and each other continue for many, many years to come.

Ben & Summer // Bunker Hills Golf Club Wedding

It was a busy Saturday morning at Caribou Coffee when I first met Ben and Summer. Within a few minutes of talking, I knew this couple was one that I wanted to work with and get to know more. They are so genuine and authentic. Summer’s smile and laugh can light up the darkest room and it only takes one look from Ben to get her nose to crinkle and she’s smiling from ear to ear. For cultural traditions, this wonderful couple was officially married during a small intimate ceremony two weeks prior to their reception at Bunker Hill Golf Club in Coon Rapids. Summer’s energy and love was infectious and Ben was a great sport when bird seed was dumped down his pant legs per family traditions.

My wish is for all couples, especially my clients, is to be as happy on their wedding day and each day in their marriage as Summer and Ben were on this day. Many heartfelt congratulations to the lovely couple. It was an honor to get to know the two of you and work with you on such a big day in your lives together.

Summer & Kyle // Kilkarney Hills Golf Course, River Falls, WI

Summer and Kyle’s wedding colors of bright pinks, yellows and oranges, complimented by grey, was the perfect color pallet for their outdoor wedding on an overcast and misty day. The bright colors brought pops of sunshine throughout the day. Even with a looming threat of rain and storms, the couple was able to have their ceremony outside at the beautiful Kilkarney Hills Golf Course in River Falls, WI. The colors, the tree lined driveway, the perfect little gazebo, the decorative details, topped off with a great couple….wow!! Love. Congratulations Kyle and Summer. Thank you for letting us be apart of your wedding day!

Joe & Amanda // Virginia Wedding Photography

To quote Amanda, “We’ve been friends since flip phones.” We met freshman year in college when we lived on the same floor in the dorms. We became fast friends and went on to being teammates on the swim team and having a lot of crazy great adventures together. After two years I transferred schools and then Amanda moved to a couple different states after graduating. She’s one of those friends that you can talk to once or twice a year and it feels like no time has past, so when she called to tell me she was engaged, I was truly thrilled for her. When she asked me to photograph her wedding I was even more excited. The wedding was in Virginia so Phil and I flew out there for the wedding and took an extra few days and made it a little mini vacation for ourselves as well. We met Joe for the first time on Saturday and could tell instantly that he made Amanda happy and they were a great pair together. Saturday started off rainy but stopped just in time for outdoor portraits. The ceremony and reception were at the Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket which was an ideal setting for a fall wedding. Everything about the day was beautiful. Congratulations to Amanda and her new husband Joe! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love together.

Lucas & Sarah // Hudson, WI Wedding Photography

Lucas and Sarah tied the knot in one of my favorite places in Hudson – Prospect Park. They planned a simple and beautiful ceremony overlooking the St. Croix River. Some of the trees had already started to change colors which made for the perfect backdrop against the black and white wedding party attire. Sarah was an absolutely stunning bride and the way she looks at Lucas reflects the love they share. Congratulations Lucas and Sarah. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your wedding ceremony!

Angie & Will // Wedding Photography

Weddings like Will and Angie’s make me wish that American weddings lasted longer than a day. I could have easily had a good time with this couple and their friends and family for a full week. Everyone was so nice and love and laughter filled the room at Edinburgh in Brooklyn Park, MN. Angie was able to take everything beautiful about fall and bring it indoors for their decorations. It was the best fall themed wedding I have been to so far. Congratulations Angie and Will! Thanks for letting me be apart of your day.

Paul & Jocelyn // Wedding Photography

Despite the beautiful sunshine, it was freezing for Paul and Jocelyn’s wedding. Planning for an outdoor ceremony, the couple went back and forth about whether to move the ceremony inside. At the last minute they decided they really wanted to be outside against the beautiful backdrop of the autumn leafs. Their guests bundled up and shared blankets, while the bridesmaids and I wore jackets to keep warm. The ceremony and reception were held at Mount Frontenac Golf Course in Red Wing, MN. After the ceremony, the guest went inside to warm up while the wedding party and I braved the cold a little longer as we rode around course in golf carts capturing some fun images. Paul and Jocelyn both have fun and outgoing personalities. Along with the wedding party, they had me  laughing all day with them. It was a day of true happiness and love. Congrats Paul and Jocelyn!
