Valley Christian Church Wedding Photography | Becca & Scott | Lakeville Wedding Photographer


It started with a simple school girl crushing on an upper class-man. Becca made the first move and from there is was movie nights and crazy dance moves. One of the hardest times of long distance they finally have behind them as they tied the knot this past weekend at Valley Christian Church!

Becca and Scott got ready at the church; the girls were in the main building getting dolled up while the guys played games in the church's house across the parking lot.

Their first look was at Casperson Park on the doc. (This was Scott's favorite part of the day! ) We shot fast and furious just as it started to sprinkle and then the heavens opened and it down poured on us! I just think the sky couldn't hold in the tears of witnessing such a beautiful moment!
Even though we were blessed with rain, I am SO grateful it did note put a damper on Becca and Scott's spirits. It made the day so much brighter. The rain of the day made us move some photo stuff around to accommodate and keep everyone almost all dry for their photos. The bridesmaids were in the same shade of pink with all different style of floor length dresses, while the guys kept it simple with boutonnieres and white shirts.

A huge highlight of the day was the ceremony. Taking place at their church, the seats filled with people eager to witness the marriage between these two. They did a unity cross and the whole time they were just smiling at each other like they were the only two in the room. Right before the vows, their officiant Shawn revealed a little surprise. The Bride Becca had prepared a song just for her groom. A very stunned Scott say down at a chair at the piano while Becca played and sang " From the Ground Up" By Dan + Shay accompanied by her friend Josh. Scott was just basking the the beautiful voice of his now wife. He was not the only one crying in the room that's for sure. (Yes, I was balling too) It was a warm moment just witnessing the love between these two. She got a long hug once the song was completed. I think Scott loved his surprise! Mission Accomplished! Vows were then exchanged and they kissed for the first time has husband and wife!

They hosted the reception at First Baptist Church in Rosemount Minnesota where they first meet. We stole them away a little bit into the reception to take some more photos of the wedding party outside and just a couple more of them. They shared a private first dance and it was beautiful.

The night wrapped up with a sparkler exit!

It was one wedding I will never forget and I am SO happy for Becca and Scott. Please enjoy their wedding day photos!

Maplewood Community Center Wedding Photography | Nikki & Devon | Maplewood Wedding Photographer

Nikki & Devon

Nikki and Devon got married at their church of First Evangelical Free Church and held the wedding reception at the Maplewood Community Center!

The day started out with them relaxing in their getting-ready rooms. After getting dressed, right before the first look they opened letters they had written to each other. Devon opened his first and smiled through the whole thing ending with him saying " She is a good writer." Nikki got her dress on with the help of her mom and sister. She also smiled the whole time while reading Devon's letter to her.

The first look was tucked away on the path so they could just enjoy each other privately. Once they laid eyes on each other it was ALL smiles! Devon later revealed this as one of if his favorite parts of the day!

We made our way to a small park right behind the church for our portraits! It has a little pond and as we were hunting down a spot to get to the water God led us right to a little field of wildflowers! Nikki had expressed earlier her love of wildflowers and had the florist design her bouquet with wildflower feels! I was SO excited about this little addition to the day! The bridesmaids were in a beautiful burgundy lace dress while the guys kept it summer simple with a white shirt and brown tie to go with their burlap boutonnieres.

The Ceremony was held at First Evangelical Church. Right before the ceremony , their family prayed over them and sang praises to Jesus. Under an arbor lined with greenery and daisies, Nikki and Devon said their vows and the families again joined them for one final prayer on stage. After the vows were said, the ceremony was complete, and the marriage license was signed, we all made our way to Maplewood Community Center to party the rest of the night away!

It didn't come without some happy tears from Nikki's sister giving her speech and then again when Nikki's parents got the mic. They told everyone that Nikki was known for drawing on all the walls, which after they said their bit they both started singing "Writing On the Wall." The bride and groom loved it and got a red crayon as a small souviner! The couple served Nothing Bunt Cake for dessert to all their guests. For the first dances Nikki and Devon started off the normal way dancing with each other while everyone watched, but about half way they invited the wedding party with their significant others to finish out the song with them on the dance floor! I loved how inclusive this was. It is SUCH a great Idea. They did the same for the Daddy Daughter Dance and Mother Son Dance inviting all the parents with their kids to the dance floor!

I wrapped up the photography part of the night by sneaking the couple out for just a last few intimate portraits. What a great day with an Awesome couple!

Please enjoy their wedding day photos below!

Hyland Hills Ski Resort Wedding Photography | Megan & Alex | Bloomington Wedding Photographer

Megan & Alex

Megan and Alex got married on Saturday at Highland Hills! The planning was crazy all the way up to the day but the rain held off for these two and the night was all sunny skies! Megan hates the cold so she was more than delighted that it was warmer weather! But what was she more delighted about? She was marrying her best friend Alex.

The ceremony took place at the bottom of the hill with a green backdrop. The rug was a last minute addition that Alex’s mom had suggested. Alex and Megan loved the extra pop and feel it added to their simple setup. They had an intimate ceremony of 25 people who love them the deepest. Megan's brother Nick officiated the wedding which made for some fun comments of Megan's past and how happy he was when he heard the new guy she was dating (Alex) was a homeowner. Alex's little brother Archie gave the rings and Megan was able to get the ring on Alex's finger with only a little bit of struggle.

I asked Alex what he was looking forward to for today and he could not wait to get the party started! Megan was just excited to have all her friends there to celebrate with! After the ceremony, the guests started to trickle in for the reception starting off with cocktail hour! All the guests enjoyed drinks and the games set up in the back lawns for them to enjoy the evening with. Alex owns a coffee shop in Eden Prairie called Smiths; for their wedding favorites they had a Megan and Alex Blend for everyone to take home! I absolutely loved this idea! You could just tell by looking at the excitement on Alex and Megan’s faces as they greeted everyone of their guests that they were full of genuine joy! We ended with a handful of sunset portraits and I could not be more in love.

Thank you so much for letting me serve you guys on your wedding day! Please enjoy some of your wedding day photos below!
