Glenville Wedding Photography | Sara & Isaac | Glenville Wedding Photographer

The day started out with little sprinkles of rain here and there. Sara and Isaac decided to get married on his family's property in Glenville, Minnesota. Sara got ready at his grandparent’s home at the top of the hill. As we were getting ready, Sara told me all the details she loved about her wedding dress, from the belt to the pattern at the bust. This gorgeous dress looked even better when it was finally on Sara!

As for the groom, all morning Isaac had been setting up the reception space at the bottom of the hill right by one of the large ponds! Once the prep was completed, Isaac waited at the dock for their first look. Their first look was so sweet and they both just had big smiles as they did a couple of turns to give the full affect.

Being on such a big property they had the foresight to have golf carts which made all the difference as we drove around for photos! ( I love golf carts on wedding days! ). We drove the whole wedding party to the little island for portraits and right when we wrapped up the clouds rolled away with the sun shining in all its glory!
The ceremony took place with the beautiful backdrop of one of the ponds. The aisle was lined with fresh purple lilac sitting elegant on cut tree stumps. At the the end of the aisle, they said their vows under a beautiful wood arbor decorated with white linen and flowers at the front.

Sara was literally radiating pure joy with the biggest smile on her face as she walked toward her groom. The pianist played the wedding march and for the first time in my entire wedding job she played the entire song. It was a first and Sara and her dad Joe were chuckling a little bit while they waited for the song to come to a close. My favorite part of the day were the vows. Isaac choked up telling Sara how beautiful she was on the outside and more importantly the inside. It was beautiful and vulnerable. During Sara's vows she just said " I am SO Excited, that wasn't part of my vows but I just wanted to let you know." They had a rope tying part to their ceremony to honor how 3 chords together are not easily broken.

The reception details Sara and Isaac put together blew me away! The had a full blow candy table, and a table for their guests to take little ceramic watering cans. The reception was laid back allowing guests to eat and fellowship. One of the fun details was a camera table where the guests could get their photo taken by a Polaroid camera! All those photos taken were then added into a scrapbook for the bride and groom’s guest book.
The whole day was filled with joy and ended with these two love birds tearing up the dance floor!

Please enjoy photos from their wedding day!

Minnehaha Falls Park Engagement Photography | Nikki & Devon | Minneapolis Engagement Photographer

Nikki & Devon met through a set up through Nicole’s sister and her husband. Devon is friends from church and they all thought they might hit it off, so they invited both if them over for a game night at their house.

Both introverts, they let her sister and brother do most of the talking that night. It took about a month after that awkward game night until Devon got Nikki’s number. He said the procrastination got the better of him. As they were just leaving from a dinner meal (Nikki was inwardly bummed he hadn’t asked for it yet) he finally asked for it in the parking lot. From there they decided to have an official first date without the audience. They decided to head to Minnehaha Falls Park, it was somewhere they could both just relax and talk. They made there way on the back trails and came across a little beach neither of them had known about before this date. Devon trying to make casual conversation brought up that his dad’s side had red hair too. Nikki interpreted it as him suggesting that their kids would also have red hair. They laughed about it now when they told me this story on our way to their beach on their engagement shoot.

Originally Devon planned to propose at their first date spot on that same beach but the Lord had other plans. The day he was going to do it Minnesota dumped a bunch of snow making it impossibly difficult to get to their destination . Devon switched his plans and he told Nicole that they were going to go to dinner at some where very exclusive . Nicole was a bit confused but thought they might be going out to celebrate her birthday which was the night before. Well it is extremely exclusive, Devon had made dinner for them at his house with candles and the good silverware. Before any meals where touched, Devon got down on one knee and proposed to Nicole. She said yes!

For the engagement session we went back to their favorite beach and enjoyed exploring Minnnehaha Falls Park together! We were so blessed that the rain held off as we walked through some of the muddier trails. It was a beautiful spring evening as everything in Minnesota right now is starting to bud and green. When the sun started to grace us with its presence I couldn’t help but get excited!

Nikki and Devon are excited to be celebrating their love surrounded by friends and family later this summer. Please enjoy some of their photos from their engagement session!
