~M~ Wedding June 20, 2015 {Southern Minnesota Wedding Photographer}

 I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous wedding. C was the most organized bride I have worked with yet, and I loved it! She had lists and timelines all ready for me and all I had to do is show up and capture the day as she saw it. All of her planning paid off. The day went off without a hitch. Well, it may have been a tad hot, but other then that, it was perfect! I had so much fun spending the day with C & P and feel so honored they asked me to capture their day!
 Here are the details:

I purchased the birds (various places), mercury glass (TJ Maxx), lights, bunting

From the bride: “We absolutely loved our day.  It was everything both of us wanted:
meaningful ceremony, whimsical decorations, fantastic food, amazing cake, fun
dance, and, above all, many of the best people we know in attendance.  The farm
as a backdrop for the reception was an absolute dream.  We will forever fondly
reminisce about the details, conversations, and love that we experienced on our
wedding day.”

Warning, photo overload…there were A LOT of favorites!!
The dress shots are seriously my favorites. The farm was a beautiful place for photos!

How could I NOT use the silo??

So handsome!

Sisters ♥

C wore her mom’s veil and I love this moment between them. 

This quilt is C’s parent’s wedding quilt, she had a bride “moment” when she saw it that morning. 

If that is not a genuine smile, I don’t know what is!

Their bride and groom shots are perfection. True emotion and relaxed. Love them!

Her laugh was infectious! 

The little moments

Such beautiful flowers

Oh how I loved shooting in the grove!

Such a grand church

The moment it comes down to…

I love capturing little ones enjoying the ceremony

Such a fun bridal party!

Love the sun through the tree…

The details of their reception were just so simple and beautiful, I loved them all!

I loved their reception, hot, but a perfect location!

The cake was delicious!! 

Great speeches by the best man and maids of honor!

Yes, H had her dog with her 🙂 

I love C’s laugh, and she was full of smiles that day! 

This is such a great shot of their attitude all day. So relaxed. 


Thank you, thank you, C and P for allowing me to be a part of your day! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!
