Maggie and Mike are in every way a power couple. They are smart, driven and successful. At the same time, this couple is up for a trip across the world or a walk around their neighborhood with their dogs. They have created a relationship on an incredible friendship and because of this, they are really a team-for-life and I greatly admire that! The groom, Mike, just so happens to work in the wedding industry, so when it came to planning their big day, it was important for the couple to create a special space for a private ceremony...and then have a party. Palm Springs is a place that Maggie and Mike travel to often and in March, the couple invited their immediate family to a private property for their wedding ceremony. I was lucky enough to document this event and the day was truly stunning! We spent the day going thru the city, adventuring into the desert and hitting up some of the hot spots in Palm Springs for their photos. When it came to the ceremony, Maggie and Mike passed around their wedding rings to each family member to bless - and I don't think there was a dry eye in the group. It was such a special moment! A couple of months later, Maggie and Mike hosted a wedding party at the Walker Art Museum, back in Minneapolis, to celebrate the marriage! That is coming soon in Part 2 of their blog feature!
