Outdoor / Barn / Farm / River / Trees Wedding | Shane + Mandy

That title is a mouthful, isn’t it? But this beautiful wedding day with Shane + Mandy had it all!

I’ve known Shane for many years, being one of my husband’s good friends, so when he and his girlfriend Mandy got engaged I was SO happy for them! (And then, of course, when they asked me to be their wedding photographer I was even happier!)

Their wedding ceremony took place at the cabin of Shane’s parents outside of Chatfield, MN, beside a quaint little stream on an amazing summer’s day. We then headed over to the Barns of Old Glory in St Charles, MN, a lovingly and impeccably restored farm with several barns including a bridal suite “villa”, a large reception barn, petting zoo, hayrides and more! It was an amazing location for a wedding as there was much to do for everyone (the petting zoo with baby animals being a particular favorite) and plenty of space for a lot of wedding guests.

Thank you so much, Shane + Mandy, for choosing to work with me on one of the biggest days of your life. I am ridiculously happy for you guys, and I wish you the happiest life together!

Lyndale Park Peace (Rock) Garden Engagement Photos | Jaime + Jordon

“Plans have changed. We won’t be getting married in Minnesota after all. We’re moving!”

A few weeks prior I had received an initial inquiry from Jaime asking more about my wedding and engagement photography. When I did not hear back from her for a few weeks, I figured she must have moved on, but then the email several weeks later from her explained the silence. They were moving very suddenly out of state for a job transfer, so we went from discussing wedding photography to engagement photography, and how fast could we get it done!

We photographed at the Lyndale Park Peace (Rock) Garden, which is always a spectacular location. Since they lived very nearby, and got engaged right in the park, it was the perfect spot! We spiced it up a bit by photographing first thing in the morning, and with a fresh rain and low clouds giving way to a bright morning sun and perfect late summer temps, the park was even more amazing!

Congratulations on your engagement, Jaime and Jordon! I wish you the best of luck settling into your new home – and starting your new life together!

Pioneer Park Stillwater MN Wedding | Brian + Liz

Trying to get caught up on my blogging delay, and I can finally highlight the photography from the amazing Stillwater MN wedding of Brian and Liz! They were married in Pioneer Park in Stillwater MN on August 15th, 2014, a spectacular location that overlooked the St Croix River and town of Stillwater. They had also rented out the Agatha Christie Room at the Rivertown Inn, a gorgeous B&B on a hill in Stillwater, and the rooms are amazing in their detail and display. Brian + Liz followed their wedding ceremony with a paddleboat dinner and reception cruise that traveled along the St Croix and gave beautiful scenery to their guests. Thank you so much, Brian and Liz, for allowing me to be a part of one of the biggest days of your lives. I am so happy for you both, and wish you an amazing and adventurous life together!
