Tyler + Lindsey

Where to begin with these two…  They got married on the most beautiful day in December.  I’m not joking.  It seriously was a 40 degree day filled with bright sunlight, fresh, sparkly snow and Christmas was still lingering in the air.  I could get used to a winter like that!  And they chose the  Rochester Art Center for both their ceremony and reception which is one of my favorites.  Plus, they had so many sweet touches that made their day special and unique.  But that’s not the best part.  The best part is that these two are probably the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.  They are incredibly thoughtful, kind, relaxed and downright happy.  Oh, did I mention in love?  From their families to their friends to the love between the two of them, it was infectious!  My cheeks hurt from smiling so much!  From the bottom of my heart, congratulations on an amazing wedding.  You both were an absolute joy to work with and I hope you have many, many, many days as wonderful as your wedding!

A very special thanks to Sarah Field for second shooting with me!  And to Heather Ritenour-Sampson for designing the beautiful florals!

Mark + Sarah

Mark and Sarah’s wedding was my first wedding in Maine!  And it was a good one.  They started their day out by having their first meeting at the Wire Bridge near New Portland, ME.  This place in itself is incredible, the bridge was built in the 1800s and is believed to be the only surviving bridge of it’s kind in the US.  Then we headed to the ceremony which was in Mark’s parents’ back yard on the beautiful Ira Mountain.  Add in the most perfect fall weather and more importantly, an awesome couple surrounded by their closest family and friends and that equals an incredible day.  Congratulations Mark and Sarah!

Ellen + Darrick

Ellen + Darrick were married at the Mayowood Stone Barn in Rochester, MN and from start to finish, their day was a fairy tale.  Remember them from their engagement session?  The super cute couple with the adorable dog?  Yep, that’s them.  As it turns out, they make a beautiful bride and groom as well.  And not only are they super stylish and adorable, they also are incredibly thoughtful, kind and sweet.  They are so gentle with each other, their love is obvious and infectious.  And the thought and consideration that went into making all the details of their day special and sentimental was phenomenal.  Ellen and Darrick, I have loved getting to know you and feel so thankful to share in a part of your story.  Congratulations on a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful love!

p.s.  Special thanks to the fabulous Sarah Field for second shooting with me!

Patricia + Michael

Patricia and Michael’s Boston engagement session was my inaugural shoot on the East Coast this summer and their wedding near Baltimore was THE BEST way to start my first few official days out East.  They were married outdoors at Tricia’s parents beautiful home overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.  I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: I love weddings.  But what I love more is working with awesome people on one of the happiest days of their lives.  There were so many times throughout their day where I was filled with happiness.  Happiness for Michael and Patricia as they start this new adventure together.  Happiness for the love surrounding them from family and friends.  Happiness for the beauty in all the little details.  Happiness for the possibilities that having a camera opens up for me.  It was a fantastic day…CONGRATULATIONS, Tricia and Mike!  We are beyond happy for you and wish you many days as happy as your wedding day.

Martin + Nana

Martin + Nana were married on a gorgeous August day in Minneapolis.  Not only was it a special day for the two of them but their families as well.  They had guests from all over the world!  It was fantastic to witness not only the love they have for each other but the love surrounding them from their family and friends.  The details of the day were meticulously planned.  Munster Rose did an amazing job on the florals and the Semple Mansion was the perfect venue.

Martin, (my fellow Cobber) it was so fun to meet your beautiful bride, Nana! And Nana, I’m so happy you and Martin found one another! We had so much fun photographing your big day! Congratulations to you both!

A special thanks to Jessica Smith for second shooting with me!  And a shout out to Northern Lights Video who provided the video coverage and did this amazing same day edit video for them.

Kim + Julie

Kim + Julie were married at the Decordova Museum near Boston, MA.  Happiness and love was overflowing among family, friends, the couple, and within all the details that made the day specifically “them”.  It was probably the most sincere and personal ceremony I have ever attended as they incorporated both of their traditions, Jewish and Lutheran, into the service.  Kim, you have been a dear, dear friend since our days at Concordia in Minnesoooota.  I have never seen you happier and can’t congratulate you and Julie enough.  Celebrating with you two was a joy and an honor.  Cheers to many more days as happy as your wedding day!  xoxox.

Neal + Jessica

You may remember these two from their engagement session last summer.  It’s easy to mistake them for J.Crew models, I know.  Which is one reason why I was excited to shoot their wedding.  But even more than that, they are extra special friends.  Neal and Justin have been best buds since they were little kids and even though miles and time separate them, their friendship stays the same.  Everyone needs a friend like that.  So while I always love weddings, I really loved this wedding.  Our hearts were bursting with happiness for you two every time we turned around: there was love in all the little details, the hugs, the tears, the laughter, the looks shared between people.  CONGRATULATIONS, Neal and Jessica!  We are beyond happy for you and wish you many, many days as happy as your wedding day.  xoxox.
