Tent Reception

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!

Bryant Avenue Baptist Church Wedding Photography | Megan & Stefan | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

Megan and Stefan met officially at college. Megan was really shy at first Stefan didn't think she was interested, it took a little bit of convincing but eventually Megan convinced him that she was completely interested. Unofficially they met when Stefan met Megan'sfather and he had Stefan waved at his family sitting in thecar. Little did he know he just waved at his future wife.

On the wedding day Megan and Stefan had me convinced within minutes that they could not be more excited to marry the other. Megan's details had me laughing with delight; her shoes were literally unicorns. If you know this bride at all you know how fitting they were and by the end of the night she convinced me that she was my unicorn bride! Stefan loved the shoes and his reaction had everyone giggling. 

The music that drew people in was the soundtrack to Pride and Prejudice 2005, which was so beautifully played and set the mood. Megan walked downthe aisle to Studio Ghibli; the moment could not have been more beautiful. 
As the reception came so did the rain, but it made sure to keep these two in mind because it didn't interrupt anything on the wedding day.  Having both worked at Caribou Coffee (Stefan very short time), their love of coffee was evident having their own coffee station with coffee bean favors for their guests to take home.

It was such a joy to take part in a small part of my MW Bride and Groom's lives. Congrats to such a sweet couple.
