It's always such a pleasure to capture couples and one of the biggest milestones of their lives! These two and their families were welcoming, kind and it was pretty obvious they have strong supporters who will encourage them in their new life together.
From getting ready to final dance, their day was filled with laughter, sweet embraces, excitement and true love. I thought it was absolutely fabulous that TJ didn't see his bride until the moment she walked down the aisle and it was a moment of tears and goosebumps for everyone! They exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony and celebrated like they meant it throughout the evening!
Edgewood farm was a beautiful venue and their vendors were absolutely fantastic to work with!
Congrats to the happy couple! I'd wish you happiness and good luck but you've already got more than anyone I know!

Christa and Johnny were married in the most intimate ceremony at the lovely Good Shepard Church of Golden Valley. She wore the most beautiful cross neckless gifted from her grandmother. It hung softly around her neck and it was a memorable moment as she told her in person as she arrived!
Unless you're 100% against it, I always encourage my couples to take advantage of a "first look." It's a surreal and romantic opportunity to see each other before the dynamics of a wedding day. These two took my advice and were able to exchange the sweetest kisses, looks, and gifts. Christa was so excited to kiss her groom - she left a little evidence behind! :)
After the ceremony and on our way to dinner, we stopped by Theo Wirth Park for their couple photos. The park is absolutely perfect at sunset and allowed us to really focus on the two of them in such a beautiful sun kissed setting. Check out the balcony and their amazing dance moves below!
Immediately following, we met their closest friends and family at Jax Cafe in NE Minneapolis where everyone enjoyed an evening filled with hour d'oeuvres, drinks and merriment!
Congratulations! Your wedding day was amazing and I'm equally excited to photograph your upcoming reception in August!
Dan and Melissa were a dream to work with! I met the gals at the Commons Hotel to capture their getting ready photos and they had such a blast in their hotel suite! When ready, we hopped in to a luxurious limo and met the groom and his best guys at St. Kate's Campus for their first look reveal. The couple was full of emotion as we set up their reveal. Their fur baby even joined them for the photos!
We captured some elegant photos of the couple and their party then headed to Gold Medal park for some more playful shots.
Immediately following, we headed to Lumen Christi Catholic Church for a memorable service that forever joined them as husband and wife.
The reception was held at The Commons Hotel in Minneapolis where they celebrated all night long with their friends and families. They danced, ate, and celebrated such a beautiful couple and their future together!
I am honored to have been there to capture all of the details of Dan and Melissa's wedding day celebration! Congratulations on hosting such an elegant event!
To say this couple was memorable would be an understatement. They had THE most elegant ceremony at the Historic Courthouse in Stillwater, MN. In fact, they were the last couple ever to wed in the venue.
The courthouse offered a variety of historical elements, including the most recognizable jailhouse. It would be taboo not to use that space so they happily obliged!
The charm and grace I saw in these two was unreal. They come from two very different backgrounds and I just love how they embraced their values and brought them together in such a lovely celebration!
Congrats to you and your happily ever after! Thank you for allowing me to be part of such an amazing time in your lives!
Eric and Max were married in October and were so very handsome in their coordinating navy suits. We took advantage of the always gorgeous Gold Medal Park then walked to Day Block Brewery for their intimate afternoon ceremony.
