Jessica & Sam | Modern Minneapolis Wedding

Jessica & Sam have lived on the East Coast for a number of years, after meeting initially at undergrad in the midwest. They brought their wedding celebrations back to Minnesota by planning their celebration at the 514 Event Studios in downtown Minneapolis. Their day had such a fun and modern feel to it - I love how they incorporated their amazing personal style into the day. Although it rained for most of the day, there were great indoor locations that fit the modern feel of this sweet couple. Jessica and Sam didn't see each other until the ceremony which kept the anticipation high for much of the day at how they would react. Guests visited Modist Brewing, just down the street from the venue, as the room was flipped for the reception. It was transformed into a cozy, candlelit space for the evening dinner, speeches and dancing. Big congratulations to the newlyweds for as beautiful a marriage as your wedding day was!

Kali & Jared | Vineyard Wedding

Kali and Jared had a beautiful wedding at the end of September. Blessed with a beautiful fall day, they were married at a vineyard in southern Minnesota, which overlooked a valley of trees just starting to show their fall colors. The crisp air and sunny skies made for a great combination to enjoy the day outside, from their first look to bridal party and family photos. Jared and Kali are both avid fisher-man/woman, so Kali's gift to Jared was a custom hook that he wore on his lapel. It was a very sweet gesture to one of their favorite hobbies. 

Their day was classic, beautiful, fun and meaningful. Enjoy a peek at their gorgeous vineyard wedding!

Ella & Judson | Lake Minnetonka Engagement

On one of the last summery evenings of the year, we got together with Ella and Judson on the shore of Lake Minnetonka for their engagement session. It was so fun watching them interact with each other - which is why there are so many great photos of them together! To finish their session, we headed out on the lake on Ella's family boat to catch the sunset right before a storm blew in. As in, literally when we were saying goodbye, the wind picked up and it started to rain. I'm so glad we got sunshine for their session because it matches their sunny personalities.

Kristy & Zach | Elegant Calhoun Beach Club Wedding

It's hard to begin describing a wedding day as beautiful as Kristy & Zach's. This wedding was extra special to us because there were three of our wonderful couples in attendance, including Kristy & Zach. It was fun to see our two past couples at the wedding and catch up on life with them!

Despite unseasonably warm temperatures for late September, Kristy & Zach's Calhoun Beach Club wedding was pure perfection. Kristy got ready in the light-filled reception room, which made for some of the most stunning getting ready photos. Her maid of honor helped button her dress and put on jewelry. Kristy received a signet ring from Zach with her new initials, which added to her 'something new' for the day. 

The bright ceremony space was such a lovely space and made for a dramatic walk down the aisle as Kristy came down the steps with her dad. After dinner started, we snuck out for a few sunset photos. It was a game-time decision by Kristy and Zach to go a little bit farther than was convenient and head to the Lake Calhoun beach. I'm so glad they decided to go for it, because the minutes with them at the beach were so romantic. After squeezing every last drop out of the sunset, they went back inside to enjoy speeches, dancing and a sparkler send-off. It was just such a great day. We wish all the best to this wonderful & sweet newlywed couple!
