CRYSTAL + DAN = MARRIED

APRIL 17TH – 2010 – SUPERIOR WI

This entire day was a photographers dream… everything and everyone was so beautiful and we had lots of time to have FUN! We had two hours of “Al and Lyndsey, you get to pick where we go and what we do” time!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! There are way to many crazy cool images that should be posted… I guess you’ll just have to become friends with Crystal and Dan to see them.

It would be awesome to see the process of getting this shot as a video… I think a few groomsmen got knocked on the head with the flowers… or very close!

ANGIE + PETER = ENGAGED

We’ll get to hang out with these two again in September for their wedding, with the backdrop of the day being the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth.  Can’t wait!

The forecast was for a nice sunny – mid 60′s kinda morning… instead it was crazy windy and COLD! It just meant there would be some snuggling and windblown hair… we gotta love that!

As we were chatting about the wedding details I asked what colors did you pick…

Peter: “purple and brown”

Angie: “lilac and mocha”

At the end of the shoot I got to meet their child… he had waited so patiently in the car… His name is Atlas and he’s 7 years old.

AMY + ZACH = MARRIED!

MARCH 13 – 2010 – DULUTH, MN

I love asking couples how they met – this relationship started started back in college, more specifically… college choir. That might explain why the music during the wedding was amazing! The details, the church, the reception and everything else was put together to create a stunning – elegant day!

LEXI + DREW = MARRIED

FEBRUARY 26 – 2010 – ST PAUL, MN

Drew + Lexi are 100% perfect for each other! To be apart of their celebration was a true honor.

A few things I learned about Lexi right away. 1.  A go-with-the-flow kinda gal, willing to get dressed in the closest ladies room. Who cares if it’s tiny and other random ladies come in. 2. A pushy sales lady got her to buy the overpriced hairpiece… but turns out to be the perfect touch. 3. Has a heart of gold.

BRITTA + PETER TIED THE KNOT!

JANUARY 30 – 2010 – DULUTH, MN

We loved everything about this wedding… the people, the style, the dress, the location… did I mention the bride and groom?! Amazing. It’s been a few weeks since the wedding and we’re still talking about how crazy cool it was!

Britta + Peter, you two are rock stars!

As they turn around to walk down the aisle someone throws a paper airplane at them… and then they are bombarded with dozens of planes!  It was a total surprise to them (and us, to be honest I initially thought someone threw their napkin at them!) It was a fantastic twist!

142 580x8121 Britta + Peter

I must say the Sacred Heart Music Center is one of our absolute favorite wedding locations to date! We were free to play and explore the building and the atmosphere was perfect.  That is if you love cracks, peeling paint and all things awesome.

Britta + Peter, thanks for letting us be apart of your day! Here’s a little Irish Wedding Blessing for you:

May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.

Just put Jessica and Wade’s immediate families in a room and you’re having a party! They are both the oldest children (Jessica of 8 and Wade of 5) and the first to be married on either side… so you can imagine the excitement, energy, fun and celebrating that would make up the day.

KELSEY + MITCH = NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING EXTRAVAGANZA!

DECEMBER 31 – 2009 – OWATONNA, MN

Ringing in the New Year with 500 + guests and a party like none other was the perfect mix for ending 2009 and welcoming 2010. Kelsey + Mitch were a blast to hang out with all day! After their engagement shoot we knew the wedding was going to bring on the craziness… and it did.

The sun was blasting in through a few skinny windows and as we walked by we had to put on the breaks and get some shots.

I think we were outside for a total of 30 seconds. It was FREEZING!

As guests were being seated and the lovely mood music was playing… we were playing a little too downstairs with the wedding party. We found a blank wall and things just happened!
