Married! // Caroline + Will

Caroline and Will were married this weekend in Minneapolis! Their ceremony took place surrounding Loring Park - with their ceremony at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral and their reception continued at the new wedding venue, The Loring Social. Will and Caroline are such a thoughtful couple and always, always having fun. Throughout their wedding day, there was a theme that kept popping up and it was this: It's all of the small things in life that really matter. It's all of the small moments that are part of the bigger story of our lives. 

I love this. Will and Caroline met at a bar one random night in NYC. Will was simply had his hands full, bringing back drinks for his table, and Caroline offered to help. Call it fate, but it was a moment in life that could have seemed very small, but ended up being so much more. 

I've always been fascinated by how people come in and out of our lives. I feel this connection with many of my wedding clients, which makes photographing weddings that much more meaningful. 

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Geiger!

LOVEe

Married // Anna + Derek

 

Anna and Derek have a very serendipitous meeting. The two met at a wedding, in which they were both a part of the wedding party. (You can read more about that story here.) However; we all learned during the father-of-the-bride-speech that Derek had met his future-father-in-law a few times in life, before the couple had ever met! How cool is that, seriously.

The thing about Anna and Derek is that they make you believe in love. Just being in their presence makes you happy and seeing how they are with one another is inspiring. They truly have it all, but their connection is beyond cool to bear witness to. 

On the wedding day, it started as a stormy summer day here in Minnesota. But the skies cleared for us just at the right moments and ended with ALL the sunshine. I must say, the day felt quite romantic with all of the weather and it ended so perfectly.

I am so so so happy for Anna and Derek! Congratulations to you and cheers to all that is to come!

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! // Amy + Jamieson

 

This day. What a lovely, perfect Saturday in the Minnesota summer for a wedding. I've always thought that Amy and Jamieson are one of those classically gorgeous couples, but add on top of it this gorgeous event, her stunning dress and his clear adoration for her and it was pure magic. The couple were married at an outdoor ceremony at Nicollet Island Pavilion and the celebration continued inside the venue all night. 

I had a bit of a personal moment while photographing this wedding. Years ago, I photographed the wedding of Amy's sister and just a few years ago one of her close friend's wedding. I was truly honored when Amy and Jamieson invited me back to document their day, and I got to see both past couples at their wedding. It was a great reminder of how much I love each wedding client that hires us and why we do what we do. 

I am so so so happy for Amy and Jamieson and can't wait to see what the future holds for these two!

LOVEe

Married! // Kayla + Brian

 

Kayla and Brian had such a gorgeous wedding. Truly, it was perfect. Their day was planned with the help of their rockstar wedding planner, Julia LaCroix and every last detail was thoughtful and so so lovely for the event. The couple had an all-star vendor list, which you can see below, but beyond all of the gorgeous details, there were some grand moments. Kayla and Brian are so sweet with one another and it was great to see how close their families had become over the years that they have been dating. Everyone was SO excited to celebrate this couple and their union! Congratulations to the newlyweds!

LOVEe
