Brett + Kayla :: Millennium Garden Wedding

Brett and Kayla have known each other for a long time and been in love for pretty much all of their adult life. They met at camp when they were 13 and what started as a summer crush turned into a life-long love. They have been each other’s constant cheerleaders and support as they’ve grown up and come into their own. I’ve personally gotten to see them grow up as a long-time friend. They’ve taught me so much and I couldn’t be more happy to witness them finally get married. Their wedding was held at the Millennium Garden in Plymouth, MN. It was arguably one of the hottest days of the year. When the girls showed up to get ready, the Wayzata Boys LaCrosse team had set up shop right outside the door for practice. The combination of the heat and the smell of the gear from 30 LaCrosse bags made for a memorable morning to say the least! Kayla wore her Mom’s wedding dress and watching her dad see her in it for the first time was a pretty special moment for all of us. Congrats you two!!

Caitlin, Parker and I unofficially met at Carolyn and Austin’s wedding not too long ago. We bonded over email and made it official at their engagement shoot.  When I finally got to spend some time with them it was such a sweet breath of fresh air. They are so warm, gentle and comfortable with each other. They love to laugh, love to smile and don’t take themselves too seriously. Each step of the process from beginning to end was full of a sense of ease. Even during the wedding when traffic was bad and things were delayed, groomsmen kept disappearing to capture Pokemon, Caitlin and Parker had smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts. It was cool to witness and even more fun to be a part of. We were so well taken care of and these to I hope to be friends with for a long time to come. Congrats!!

Heather and I have known each other since college and I can remember sitting under the Golden Gate Bridge having coffee a few years ago. It was after a particularly difficult year in her life. She was strong, positive and ready for what was going to come next. It turns out that it was Doug! Watching these two together makes everything right with the world. They had a small wedding with their families at a friend’s home on the Mississippi River with sail boats and white clouds in the background. Heather’s nieces and nephews carried signs and flowers to celebrate on the lawn. I was so fortunate to be able to witness the love, sense of humor and joy that these families were filled with. I love you guys!

Diana + Adam :: Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens Wedding

What a glorious day. Hot. Humid. Bright sun and a little bit of an afternoon rain  all rolled into one. The ceremony was originally going to be held outside on the banks of the Mississippi River, but a quick look at the weather promised rain right around go time, so the amazing team at Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens moved everything inside without skipping a beat. The day was filled with smiles and laughter and so much joy all the way through. Congrats you two!
