Lexi + Ben | 10.25.14

And here it is folks, my very last wedding of 2014…and I love it!! October 25th was a beautiful day with Lexi, Ben and their awesome family and friends. Our dad’s go way back and our families have known each other for years, so it was so fun to be with them the day of and seeing how loved Lexi and Ben are by those closest to them. I couldn’t have been more happy to be alongside such a great couple, and couldn’t have wrapped up the season with a more lovely day!! So thrilled to share with you all today…enjoy and Merry Christmas!! 2014-12-18_00052014-12-18_00032014-12-18_00022014-12-18_00042014-12-18_00082014-12-18_00102014-12-18_00112014-12-18_00122014-12-18_00132014-12-18_00072014-12-18_00142014-12-18_00152014-12-18_00162014-12-18_00172014-12-18_00182014-12-18_00192014-12-18_00212014-12-18_00222014-12-18_00232014-12-18_00242014-12-18_00252014-12-18_00262014-12-18_00272014-12-18_00282014-12-18_00292014-12-18_00302014-12-18_00332014-12-18_00312014-12-18_00322014-12-18_00342014-12-18_00362014-12-18_00352014-12-18_00372014-12-18_00382014-12-18_00392014-12-18_00402014-12-18_00412014-12-18_00422014-12-18_00432014-12-18_00442014-12-18_00452014-12-18_00462014-12-18_00482014-12-18_00492014-12-18_00502014-12-18_00552014-12-18_00592014-12-18_00562014-12-18_00572014-12-18_00582014-12-18_00602014-12-18_00632014-12-18_00642014-12-18_00612014-12-18_00652014-12-18_00622014-12-18_00662014-12-18_00672014-12-18_00682014-12-18_00532014-12-18_00092014-12-18_00702014-12-18_00712014-12-18_00742014-12-18_00752014-12-18_00762014-12-18_00772014-12-18_01132014-12-18_01182014-12-18_01212014-12-18_01192014-12-18_01202014-12-18_00812014-12-18_00822014-12-18_00832014-12-18_00842014-12-18_00852014-12-18_00862014-12-18_00872014-12-18_00892014-12-18_00942014-12-18_00902014-12-18_00912014-12-18_00922014-12-18_00932014-12-18_00952014-12-18_00972014-12-18_00962014-12-18_00992014-12-18_00982014-12-18_01012014-12-18_01032014-12-18_01022014-12-18_01042014-12-18_01052014-12-18_01062014-12-18_01072014-12-18_01082014-12-18_01092014-12-18_01102014-12-18_01112014-12-18_01122014-12-18_01142014-12-18_01152014-12-18_01162014-12-18_0117

Steph + Kyle | 10.12.14

October proved itself time and time again to be the most beautiful month of the year…and Steph and Kyle’s wedding day is right up there with being truly TRULY beautiful. The day took place down in Rochester at the Mayowood Stone Barn….if ya haven’t been there, go. And if you don’t think it’s an exceptionally beautiful venue, you’re wrong. It was an amazing day with Steph and Kyle, and their seriously awesome wedding party, family and friends. It was a sweet celebration and I loved being the front man with a camera in hand to capture the whole day for them. Such an honor and so excited to share! Without further ado…I give you the Wahlunds!! 2014-12-10_00012014-12-10_00042014-12-10_00032014-12-10_00022014-12-10_00072014-12-10_00092014-12-10_00082014-12-10_00122014-12-10_00102014-12-10_00132014-12-10_00142014-12-10_00152014-12-10_00172014-12-10_00202014-12-10_00412014-12-10_00262014-12-10_00272014-12-10_00282014-12-10_00292014-12-10_00302014-12-10_00332014-12-10_00312014-12-10_00362014-12-10_00372014-12-10_00392014-12-10_00242014-12-10_00212014-12-10_00402014-12-10_00422014-12-10_00432014-12-10_00442014-12-10_00452014-12-10_00472014-12-10_00462014-12-10_00482014-12-10_00502014-12-10_00522014-12-10_00492014-12-10_00582014-12-10_00532014-12-10_00512014-12-10_00572014-12-10_00562014-12-10_00602014-12-10_00612014-12-10_00622014-12-10_00632014-12-10_00642014-12-10_00652014-12-10_00662014-12-10_00682014-12-10_00672014-12-10_00702014-12-10_00712014-12-10_00722014-12-10_00732014-12-10_00762014-12-10_00772014-12-10_00782014-12-10_00802014-12-10_00812014-12-10_00822014-12-10_00832014-12-10_00862014-12-10_00872014-12-10_00882014-12-10_00902014-12-10_00912014-12-10_00922014-12-10_00942014-12-10_00932014-12-10_00952014-12-10_00962014-12-10_00972014-12-10_00992014-12-10_01002014-12-10_01022014-12-10_01012014-12-10_01042014-12-10_01032014-12-10_01072014-12-10_01082014-12-10_01202014-12-10_01112014-12-10_01122014-12-10_01102014-12-10_01132014-12-10_01142014-12-10_01152014-12-10_01162014-12-10_01172014-12-10_01182014-12-10_01192014-12-10_01242014-12-10_01252014-12-10_01222014-12-10_01232014-12-10_01212014-12-10_01282014-12-10_01272014-12-10_01302014-12-10_01292014-12-10_01312014-12-10_01332014-12-10_01342014-12-10_01352014-12-10_01362014-12-10_01372014-12-10_01382014-12-10_01402014-12-10_01412014-12-10_01442014-12-10_01432014-12-10_01452014-12-10_01462014-12-10_01472014-12-10_01482014-12-10_01492014-12-10_01502014-12-10_01512014-12-10_01542014-12-10_01522014-12-10_01532014-12-10_01562014-12-10_01572014-12-10_01552014-12-10_01582014-12-10_01592014-12-10_0160



Katie + Ethan | 10.10.14

Nothing makes me happier than being able to share ANOTHER beautiful wedding with you all the day before the holidays officially begin! Katie and Ethan were seriously such a great couple to work with. I met them through the amazing planner Sarah Trotter, and gosh, it was the perfect set-up! I connected with them instantly, and their day was beaauuuutiful. It was another stunning fall day at the Basilica and Nicollet Isaland Pavilion, and it didn’t hurt that Katie and Ethan are totally nuts for each other :) SUCH a great day, and so thrilled to have been part of it in this amazing way!!

Ashley + Dan | 9.13.14

And here we go again…another beautiful fall wedding. Ashley and Dan were seriously some of the funnest people to work with. I met them last winter, when we braved the cold and held their engagement session OUTSIDE (relive that day here)!! Well…their bravery paid off, because their wedding day was absolutely perfect, and they couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The entire day was all smiles with them, and their love for each other was one of the purest I was able to capture this fall. Their family and friends made the day an amazing celebration, and I was honored to be able to walk alongside them throughout the day to snap some pretty amazing and beautiful moments!! Congrats Ashley and Dan! SUCH a sweet celebration with you both! I loved being part of every second with you!!2014-11-21_00012014-11-21_00022014-11-21_00032014-11-21_00062014-11-21_00072014-11-21_00082014-11-21_00092014-11-21_00102014-11-21_00112014-11-21_00132014-11-21_00142014-11-21_00152014-11-21_00172014-11-21_00192014-11-21_00162014-11-21_00202014-11-21_00222014-11-21_00232014-11-21_00252014-11-21_00262014-11-21_00292014-11-21_00302014-11-21_00312014-11-21_00332014-11-21_00322014-11-21_00342014-11-21_00352014-11-21_00362014-11-21_00382014-11-21_00392014-11-21_00402014-11-21_00412014-11-21_00422014-11-21_00432014-11-21_00442014-11-21_00452014-11-21_00462014-11-21_00482014-11-21_00472014-11-21_00492014-11-21_00502014-11-21_00512014-11-21_00522014-11-21_00532014-11-21_00542014-11-21_00552014-11-21_00572014-11-21_00562014-11-21_00592014-11-21_00602014-11-21_00612014-11-21_00622014-11-21_00632014-11-21_00742014-11-21_00702014-11-21_00692014-11-21_00712014-11-21_00722014-11-21_00732014-11-21_00682014-11-21_00662014-11-21_00672014-11-21_00772014-11-21_00762014-11-21_00802014-11-21_00782014-11-21_00792014-11-21_00822014-11-21_00842014-11-21_00832014-11-21_00812014-11-21_00852014-11-21_00862014-11-21_00932014-11-21_00902014-11-21_00912014-11-21_0092

Missy + Brad | 9.12.14

By now, you all know how much I love weddings in the woods. Missy must’ve known, because when she said she was going to be getting married at Grand View Lodge up in Brainerd, I was through the roof! It was another spot I’ve always wanted to shoot at, and it absolutely did NOT disappoint. I think the first look speaks for itself, but it was truly a breath-taking day with Missy and Brad. It was a great and intimate celebration with their family and friends, and I was truly honored to be able to be alongside them throughout the day and I’m so thrilled to feature these two on the blog today!!

Andrea + Brady | 9.6.14

It is practically impossible to put into words how amazing Brady and Andrea’s wedding weekend was. Brady is one of my best friends from college, so the opportunity to be his and Andrea’s photographer for the weekend in Black River Falls Wisconsin was an incredible honor. Everybody should get married in the woods. EVERYBODY. Andrea is the sweetest, and her and Brady are so complimentary of one another…their love for each other is genuine and pure and so SO contagious. Their vision for the weekend came together flawlessly, and could not have been spent better surrounded by our best friends at such an amazing place. We camped at Black River Falls, and the celebration began Friday and lasted through Sunday morning…AMAZING. Literally one of the best weekends ever, and I could not be more excited to share this beautiful couple on the blog today. As difficult as it is to put words together, putting this blog together was even more difficult! If I could share every single picture from the day I would. The bridal party was amazing. The ceremony was amazing. Brady and Andrea were amazing. Every speech was amazing. THE DANCE. WAS AMAZING. The story goes that Brady loves dancing…like…more than anyone, ever. And he may or may not have shouted/jumped/cried “THIS IS HEAVEN ON EARTH!!” throughout the entire night. It was…the best. I’m so happy for Brady and Andrea, their new life together, and so without further ado…I present the Gaalswyks!!

Kelli + Christian | 8.10.14

Well it’s safe to say that Kelli + Christian had one absolutely BEAUTIFUL day. When Kelli told me of her plans of getting married at Aria, I was ecstatic! The venue, if you haven’t been there, is incredible and has been on my list of places I need to shoot for months now. The whole day was a dream, and the vision Kelli and Christian put together was stunning. They were such a chill couple to spend the day with, and the pureness in their love for one another was so refreshing. It was a beautiful day with their amazing family and friends and I am so thrilled to share this awesome couple with you today! Without further ado…Kelli + Christian!!

Their wedding party, as well as their family and friends, were seriously some of the funnest I’ve shot with all summer!! Kara and Nate are such a sweet couple, and their love for one another was so evident throughout the entire day. Thank you guys SO MUCH for letting me tag along. I had SUCH a great time and I am so SO excited to share your photos today!!

Laurel + Jared | 8.2.14

Oh my GOLD….are the only words that come to mind when describing Laurel + Jared’s STUNNING day. Gold is the new everything, I love it so much, and I’m so glad that Laurel chose that as her main accent color for her wedding day. She did it well too. So classy, and so stunning, I couldn’t get enough!! It was a gorgeous day down in Owatonna with Laurel and Jared, her amazing bridesmaids and their family and friends!! I will let the photos speak for themselves of how great the day was, and once again found myself so thrilled to be able to capture such stunning people and moments!! I love leaving a wedding feeling like you’ve just left a hangout with your besties…Laurel + Jared were awesome and I’m pumped to share this day with y’all!!

Whitney + Keith | 7.27.14

Alright y’all, here it is!! This is one wedding that is extra special to me as this is my FAMILY!! What an honor to be able to capture such an incredible day for my step-brother Keith and his beautiful bride Whitney. Keith and Whit met three years ago when they were both cast for Survivor: South Pacific in 2011, and the adventure has not slowed down for them a bit as they fell in love, got engaged, married and will now be competing in The Amazing Race which airs this Friday!! Phew! As they are now settled in Nashville, TN it only seemed appropriate for their wedding celebration to take place in the great state, and the whole fam (minus two beloved Kirkbride’s in Arizona who were missed dearly!!) traveled down there for the weekend to celebrate, and who’s lovely faces will grace this post today :) The wedding location at Twin Oaks was absolutely breath-taking, maaaaaaybe a little hot and humid, but an amazingly celebration with these two and their closest friends and family members. Our time together was the best, and I’m so thankful to have had a weekend with all the kids and kiddos together! One thing I know for sure is that I MUST get back to Nashville. And that I MUST shoot more southern weddings. So happy to have been Keith and Whitney’s photographer and am so excited for this new chapter in their life together! Now…enough reading, time for photos!! 2014-09-24_00012014-09-24_00432014-09-24_00032014-09-24_00042014-09-24_00052014-09-24_00062014-09-24_00072014-09-24_00082014-09-24_00092014-09-24_00102014-09-24_00162014-09-24_00152014-09-24_00112014-09-24_00712014-09-24_00182014-09-24_00192014-09-24_00222014-09-24_00232014-09-24_00732014-09-24_00722014-09-24_00262014-09-24_00272014-09-24_00282014-09-24_00292014-09-24_00302014-09-24_00742014-09-24_00322014-09-24_00332014-09-24_00342014-09-24_00352014-09-24_00362014-09-24_00372014-09-24_00382014-09-24_00392014-09-24_00402014-09-24_00412014-09-24_00422014-09-24_00442014-09-24_00452014-09-24_00462014-09-24_00502014-09-24_00482014-09-24_00472014-09-24_00492014-09-24_00512014-09-24_00542014-09-24_00522014-09-24_00532014-09-24_00552014-09-24_00562014-09-24_00572014-09-24_00582014-09-24_00632014-09-24_00642014-09-24_00652014-09-24_00672014-09-24_00662014-09-24_00752014-09-24_00682014-09-24_00692014-09-24_00602014-09-24_00622014-09-24_0061
