Tom & Zac // Married

I have tried to start this post three or four times now, and I just cannot seem to come up with the right words to say. There are too many thoughts, memories, emotions that rush through me as I try to type. See, Tom and I go as far back as preschool. Our relationship, like many, as ebbed and flowed throughout the years, but he’s always been near and dear to my heart. Tom has brought so much light, laughter and countless spontaneous adventures into my life, and I know the same for the lives of others around him. He is genuine, thoughtful, generous and kindhearted. Though I’ve only met Zac a handful of times throughout the past few years, I would say the exact same things about him. My eyes filled with tears a few times throughout their beautiful wedding day as my heart swelled with love and respect for these two men. It brought me such great joy to see such a good friend so undeniably happy. Thank you so much for trusting me to document the biggest day in your life together up until this point. May you have many many years of happiness and grand adventures together. xoxo!

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.

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
