Married! // Meghan + Nate

Hearing how couples meet is one of my favorite things about photographing weddings. Meghan and Nate have a very serendipitous story. Their parents knew one another when the kids were little, but it wasn’t until around college that these two connected. As fate would have it, Meghan and Nate were perfect for one another and 12 years after they began dating, these two tied the knot at the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, MN.

I’ve known Nate for years through the photography world (many of you might know his amaaaazing work for The Current ). It’s been so cool to see him grow as an artist and a leader in our photography community and it has truly been extra special to get to know him and Meghan together. They are a power couple to say the least. Meghan has a thriving career on the faculty for St. Catherine University and they also both love to cycle, travel, run and compete. More importantly though, they both have really big hearts for service and giving back to the communities they are a part of. It was so great to see them with their closest family and friends for their wedding day, which also was one of the most beautiful receptions ever!

Congratulations to Meghan and Nate - we are all so happy for you!

LOVEe

Married! // Maki + Jiten Part 2

 

Maki + Jiten’s wedding day will forever go down as one of my all-time-favorites. I spent three days with this couple, their family and friends and I can’t begin to say enough about how incredibly nice and fun everyone was - emphasis on fun! We began the day at the crack of dawn and partied until sundown. One of my favorite moments of an Indian wedding is the Baraat, which is traditionally when the Groom travels to the wedding venue and is accompanied by his friends & family. It’s joyous, it’s festive and it’s a fantastic way to kick off such a celebration.

Beyond that, Maki + Jiten’s wedding day was filled with spectacular moments and it was gorgeous. Many of their guests joined from all over the world and we are all so happy for this couple as they begin their lives together! And if you missed Part 1 of this wedding, make sure to check it out here!

The Machine Shop

The Machine Shop is the newest - and hottest - wedding venue in Minneapolis. We had the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous wedding a few weeks ago and though we are keeping most of the images private, we did want to share some of the stunning details!

When it comes to planning a wedding, couples spend so much time and energy on designing the look of their day. They also place a lot of trust in their vendors to make their vision come to life. That is part of the reason we credit all of our vendors in each blog post - we know they have given their time and talent to create and amazing space for us to photograph and for the couples to experience the best day of their life!

This wedding was nothing short of stunning. Scroll down to see the vendors who created such brilliance!

LOVEe
