~W~ Wedding August 5, 2017 {Southern Minnesota Traveling Wedding Photographer}

I am so excited to finally blog this wedding. M contacted me about their wedding a year ago. She was concerned about the height difference between her and T, I told her it would be a fun challenge and not to worry. You can see in their engagement photos here, that we used a lot of lifts 🙂

When they told me about their venue, I swooned. Literally. I LOVE barn weddings and this sounded amazing. It did not disappoint. The Heritage Family Event Center is stunning. There is a building for each stage of the day so no waiting to move tables to dance! Awesome!

This year I had a lot of threat of rain. The most in my career, and this was one of them. I wore a 3/4 length sleeve dress in August. I was cold. But I am happy with overcast, no fear of shadows. We made it work.

T&M are so photogenic and so was their wedding party. It was a day full of laughs, jokes, and s’mores. My kind of day.


I love their details next to each other, so masculine, so dainty.

I couldn’t decide where to hang her dress! So many options!

Oh M, you are gorgeous.

I usually don’t get to spend too much time with my grooms. My second shooters are with them while I am with the bride. But I got a chance to photograph T, he was an easy model.

So. Much. Love.


There were flowers everywhere. They work really hard at this venue for it to look it’s best.

I loved her rings!

The ceremony took place in the hay loft of the barn, above where supper was served immediately following.

So beautiful

Oh how I love emotional grooms!!

M brought in some of her Mexican heritage into the day.

You can’t beat that “just married” feeling.

M had so many details around the venue.

What height difference? All I see is love.

What an amazing bridal party.

The party moved to the barn for supper and cake.

Then guests (and bridal party) enjoyed hay rides around the venue.

First dance feels <3

I took a lot of photos around this venue. So many awesome aspects.

This wedding was published also on So This is Love, check it out! They did an amazing job.


Getting married in 2018? I still have a few openings. I would love to hear your love story and about all of your plans for your perfect day.
