Lodge On The Lake Wedding Photography | Chelsey & Steve | Eagan Wedding Photogapher

Chelsey and Steve had been watching the weather all week and after lots of planning the day was finally here Sun and Cold and Beautiful fall colors. Chelsey was loving how everything turned out it brought her to tears multiple times even before she saw Steve!!

Although it was a colder fall day (it has snowed twice that morning ) the whole wedding party was a amazing and trusted me and we took some beautiful photos in the sun!

One of my favorite parts of the day happened during the ceremony. The ceremony took place at Lodge on the Lake. In an amphitheater style everyone was seated behind the building surrounded by the trees. The wedding party came out on the balcony walked across and down the stairs to where Steven Stood. As Chelsey and her dad Tony came out they stopped and looked out at all their guests for about 30 seconds just to help absorb the sight in. Steve was tearing up a little as he watched his beaming bride walk up to him. I lost it at that point.
The ceremony was done by a family member and for his first one he did a great job! After 9 years Chelsey and Steve said I do and became husband and wife !!!!! They could not have been more excited. We headed inside the lodge for the rest of the party! Chelsey’s table details where seriously giving me heart eyes with all the pumpkins and her flowers were done by Lisa with Forget me not florist and everything was just stunning!!

I loved serving this couple and I hope they feel that too as they honeymoon up north to celebrate their new marriage.

Enjoy their wedding day below!!

Como Park Pavilion Engagement Photography | Isabella & Steven | Minneapolis Engagement Photographer

Isabella and Steven met by chance in a cooking class when they both studied at St Paul College. Isabella was cute and quiet. Steven told me that she would hardly talk in class. So as Isabella started the class with the goal to become a better cook Steven's goal for that semester became one thing and one thing only. Get this beautiful quiet girl to talk to him.

He was definitely successful in his endeavor as they are on the road to matrimony. Steven does not consider himself a patient man when it came to proposing. He had the ring a total of ONE week trying to figure out the best way to purpose to the woman he loved. But instead he took to heart the phrase no better time then the present. As they were driving, the conversation of the engagement popped up. Steven pulled over right there, pulled out the ring that had been sitting in his pocket, and asked Isabella to marry him.  She said YES!  They are scheduled to get married next fall!
Please enjoy some of the photos we captured at their engagement session at COMO Park!

St Olaf Engagement Photography | Alyssa & Geoff | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

We have been emailing back and forth trying to pick the perfect day for this shoot! Canceled once to avoid an even colder day we landed on this past Tuesday ! We knew no one would fall asleep on this shoot because the chill we a good smack in the face! But by looking at Alyssa and Geoff's smiles you can't tell. They trooper through the snow and Minnesota chill to make magic happen! The also brought along for the journey the rambunctious Simba! He was so soft and did a great job chillaxing while we had shot a couple of photos of him. Our shoot was on the hills of St Olaf College where Alyssa and Geoff first met. Being in the same group of friends they have photographic evidence of meeting their freshman year in a human pyramid at a friends game night. It wasn't until a couple of years later they became closer friends. Geoff studying calculus went a semester abroad to Budapest to continue is math learning. They were just friends at this point but Alyssa really began to miss Geoff! Absence really does make the heart grow fonder! When he got back, they both knew this was something more than just good buds reuniting and decided to give them a shot.

It turned out for the better because here they years later planning for their September wedding! But before we get into that Geoff decided to put a ring on it and propose. He knew Alyssa being a true Minnesota girl loves lakes and made a reservation for a dinner that had a killer view. During their meal Geoff received a call from "an angry student." He apologetically took the call while setting the plan motion. Alyssa sat and waited for 30 minutes before receiving a text from Geoff to head for the car. Unbeknownst to her, he had slipped the car keys into her bag. After getting in the car she found a a mason jar with a clue of where to go. 

The clue lead her to a hill and she had a map to lead her. Not great with maps , Alyssa had another clue to lead her. 37 white origami cranes lead her to Geoff who then proposed! Ugh LOVE! 

Cant wait for their wedding later in 2018 and secretly hoping they bring Simba back so I can cuddle with him some more ;).
