Minnesota Backyard Wedding Photography | Megan + Weston

Megan and Weston had a beautiful backyard wedding at Weston's childhood home. They joked with Weston's parents that they can never move now; the house is even more special! And with a few smart tweaks, they made it safe to include some extended family and friends in their day. They live-streamed [...]

Romantic Moon Events Center Wedding Photography | Justine + Patrick

Whether they keep their date or not, most couples this summer are having to plan their wedding twice - or at least one and half times over (and they say planning a wedding once is hard!) Justine and Patrick chose to keep their wedding date, which meant changing almost everything [...]

Basilica and Muse Event Center Wedding Videography | Lexi + B.J.

I can't pretend this is a normal post. When I began editing Lexi and BJ's film, I chose a moment from Lexi's dad's speech to start the film. In his speech, Lexi's dad talked about how all the guests had traveled from all over to celebrate together. I didn't see the [...]

Lafayette Club Wedding Photography | Chersti + Paul

Chersti and Paul had already married officially earlier in the year but decided they wanted to have a wedding to celebrate with their family and friends. So in early December, with the Lafayette Club already decked out for the holidays, they had a ceremony and reception filled with singing, music, [...]

The Depot Minneapolis Wedding Videography | Alyssa + Shawn

Sometimes a wedding is about the couple and their journey, sometimes it's about their faith or their friends, their kids, or their dreams. When I was editing Alyssa and Shawn's film, their wedding was so clearly about family. Everyone who spoke at the reception, including the couple, talked about their [...]

Minnesota Backyard Wedding Photography | Zohreh + Abbas

Abbas and Zohreh planned a beautiful Saturday backyard wedding. All Friday night they kept watch on the weather forecast, and it kept getting worse and worse. Finally on Saturday morning, they started calling friends, family and vendors to see if they could possibly do the impossible - move everything to [...]

InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel Wedding Videography | Gauthami and Moulin

Gauthami and Moulin's ceremony at the Intercontinental Hotel in St. Paul was the first full Indian ceremony that we'd ever seen. We've been parts of ceremonies that incorporated some Indian traditions before, so we knew to expect one thing and we weren't disappointed: they're fun and messy in the most [...]

Stout’s Island Lodge Wedding Photography | Liz + Tom

I'm convinced that Tom and Liz's wedding on Stout's Island Lodge is the dream that couples dream when they try to plan a small wedding. An intimate group of seven people, family and friends, together for a weekend on a beautiful island. A guest list so small that the ceremony actually [...]

Aria Wedding Videography | Rodolfo + Courtney

Rodolfo and Courtney were married at Aria in downtown Minneapolis and during their ceremony, Rodolfo recited a poem he had written for Courtney in Sicilian, his native language. It's a beautiful language to express such beautiful ideas about gratitude and happiness. His poem, "Stunned" was printed in English and in [...]

Carlos Creek Winery Wedding Videography | Mallory + Aaron

There are lines you hear over and over at wedding speeches. It's not a bad thing, they're popular because they're good lines. That said, it's pretty great to hear something totally original and surprising. And surprise is what registers on Aaron's face when his two best men start blowing through [...]

Mayowood Stone Barn Wedding Videography | Ashley + Kevin

We were checking the Rochester weather forecasts for Ashley and Kevin's Labor Day weekend wedding during the whole week before. It looked like it was going to be a rainy for sure, but mid-morning the clouds parted, the drizzle stopped, and they had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Their puppy (yes, [...]

Oak View Weddings and Events Wedding Videography | Chelsey + Brett

On the morning of their wedding at Oak View Weddings and Events, Chelsey gave Brett a watch with an engraved back. The engraving said "You Sir, are very attractive. Love, Your Wife to Be." As a fellow Harry Potter fan, I really think Chelsey has a writing gift. In her [...]

Carlos Creek Winery Wedding Photography | Erin + Darren

You may not recognize this lovely couple without their cat Charlie sitting between them (for real, Charlie is a born star and really hogged the spotlight at their engagement session), but here they are minus Charlie at their wedding at Carlos Creek Winery and you have to admit, they can [...]

Como Park Zoo & Conservatory Wedding Videography| Yihao + Xuan

Yihao and Xuan were married at the Como Zoo Conservatory surrounded by a small band of excellent people. Working with bridal parties and families, we're always looking for ways to make them laugh a little, and in the case of Yihao and Xuan's wedding party, it was non-stop teasing. And [...]

Oakview Weddings and Events Wedding Photography | Chelsey + Brett

As a fellow Harry Potter fan, I was so excited to see the little nerdy touches that Chelsey promised were hidden in the decor at Oakview Weddings and Events. I don't know if it was an intentional choice, but Oakview Weddings and Events has a gorgeous willow tree right in [...]

Bearpath Golf & Country Club Wedding Videography | Kayla + Kai

Generally I don't use the word "romantic" in earnest, but there really was no better word for the snow on Kayla and Kai's wedding day. On the day, of course, we all had a very different attitude towards the bizzare snowstorm. The word "romantic" was less in people's lips than [...]

James J. Hill Center Wedding Photography | Anne + Evan

So much of weddings is about traditions, but I love when couples tweak traditions to suit them. Anne and Evan got married at the James J. Hill Center, a gorgeous building attached to the James J. Hill Library. A traditional venue, sure! But as we found out later, meaningful, since it's [...]

Downtown Minneapolis Wedding Videography | Steph and Ben

One thing I love about shooting weddings is seeing how different couples communicate love. Sometimes it's a hug, sometimes it's tears, sometimes it's words. With Stephanie and Ben, it was a bit of everything. One of my favorite moments of the day was right after they saw each other in [...]

Brackett’s Crossing Country Club Wedding Videography | Brooke + Steven

My favorite part of Brooke and Steven's day was definitely the speeches. Apparently, when Steven was trying to ask Brooke's dad for his permission, they were both really nervous and every time it seemed like Steven was about to broach the subject, Brooke's dad would quickly change the topic [...]

Boom Island Park Engagement Photography | Mallory + Aaron

When we met Aaron and Mallory, it was just before they had to make one of the biggest, most consequential decisions about their wedding at Carlos Creek: which wine to serve. Ok, maybe it wasn't the most consequential decision of wedding planning, but they were soon about to head up [...]

Destination Wedding Videography Clearwater Beach Florida | Sara + Shawn

In their toasts, Sara and Shawn's dads talked about each of their personalities as kids. It seems that they grew up as complete opposites. Sara preferring a nice night at home to sleepover parties and Shawn, so bold and people-loving that, at age 4, he invited total strangers over for [...]

Minneapolis Golf Club Wedding Videography | Ellen + Brad

Brad married Ellen at her alma mater, the University of St. Thomas. Even during their vows, their sweet and goofy personalities came out and all throughout the day, you could see that they had an uncanny ability to make each other laugh. They had an adorable proposal story too. They [...]

Waterfront Wedding on Lake Minnetonka Wedding Film | Blake + Tara

There are so many things to love about Blake and Tara's lakeside wedding, but what stands out the most to me is the story that Tara's dad told. When Tara was in high school, someone made a comment to him about her, without knowing who he was. He remembered these [...]

Northland Country Club Duluth Wedding Videography | Kendra + Mike

Kendra and Mike were married in Duluth, with a beautiful, vast view of Lake Superior. As the sun set, we took golf carts out to some of the scenic spots on the golf course. They goofed around in the golf cart, practiced their first dance, and took in the view. For [...]

Minnesota Apple Orchard Wedding Photography | Emily + Nate

The Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard was a perfect venue for this beautiful fall Minnesota wedding. The day consisted of drinking some home brew, launching apples, a gorgeous ceremony, yard games, and a great dance party with a live band. Emily and Nate were just as goofy and fun as they [...]

Carlos Creek Winery Minnesota Wedding Videography | Aubrie + Alex

Aubrie and Alex chose to see each other for the first time as Aubrie walked down the aisle at Carlos Creek Winery. When Aubrie rounded the corner, the look on Alex's face was priceless. The reception that night featured a few surprises (no spoilers, watch the film!) and some epic [...]

Stout’s Island Lodge Wedding Photography | Andrea + Chris

As we rode the ferry across the lake on the morning of Chris and Andrea's wedding,  the clouds were dark and threatened rain.  Finally Stout's Island came out of the mist. We hopped ashore and set out across the island. On the way, there were constant "look over there!" moments. [...]

Aster Cafe Wedding | Katharine + Blake

On the rain soaked street outside Aster Cafe, right after Katharine and Blake's ceremony, we ran into a French street photographer who snapped a couple photos and informed us joyfully, "mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux" (rainy wedding, happy marriage). Katharine and Blake certainly didn't need to be told! They created their [...]

Landmark Center Wedding Photography – Grace + Clay

Grace and Clay's wedding was a great start to the 2015 season. They came back to where it all started, Minnesota. The day began with the ladies getting ready at the St. Paul Hotel, while the gentleman were being groomed at Heimie's Haberdashery. The St. Paul Landmark Center was absolutely transformed for the reception, [...]

Basilica Wedding Video | Lindsay and Nathan

We absolutely fell in love with this wedding. Lindsay and Nathan lit up after they saw each other and maintained this unbelievable connection throughout the ceremony and right through the dancing. Although they now live in California, they said their vows right here at the Basilica in Minneapolis, Minnesota, partly as a tribute [...]
