Minneapolis Summer weddings

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 // Lexie + Nick

 

Lexie is a woman who's upbeat energy is contagious to everyone around her. She is the life of the party and when it came to planning her wedding day, she had a vision for exactly what she wanted. Nick is her steadfast soulmate who is the perfect match for Lexie! 

Preparation for their wedding day began years ago, right after Nick proposed. Lexie knew she wanted to be married on her family farm, so her father set out to make that happen. They cleared and leveled land, refurbished the barn and as the day came closer and closer, all of the details fell into place to make this dream come true. And let me tell you - it was a dream wedding! 

From the gorgeous details to ALL of the couple's friends and family - it was an incredible day! I must make note of the miraculous weather, too. All signs pointed towards severe thunderstorms on the day of their wedding, but somehow the storms completely missed us and there was nothing but sunshine! Totally incredible!

This might be one of the longest blog posts I have ever put together, but there was so much beauty in the moments of this day to share! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Larson!

LOVEe

Married! // Kate + Jake

 

Kate and Jake's wedding day started out with a lot of rain, but spirits were high. Absolutely nothing was going to keep this group from celebrating and as luck would have it, the clouds parted and the sunshine came out for all of their photos! 

The common theme throughout Kate and Jake's day was that the secret to a happy life is filled with friends, family and faith. This couple has strong roots in all of those categories and I just know that they are going to have the best life together! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Sturk! 

LOVEe
