PUBLISHED | MPLS ST PAUL WEDDINGS MAGAZINE

From Ms. to Mrs.! Congratulations to the lovely Emily Howald Sefton, editor of Mpls St Paul Weddings Magazine! I had the privledge of photographing her first dress fitting at l’atelier couture, and an image from the fitting was published in Emily’s Editor’s Note in the Fall/Winter issue of the magazine. Can I just take a second to tell you how much I love the ladies of l’atelier? I saw firsthand at the fitting how much attention, care, and love they devote to each and every single bride. The girls helped Emily into her gorgeous Vera Wang gown and treated her like royalty. I could tell it was a moving experience, not only for Emily, but for her mother and the rest of her family that joined her. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it, Emily! And, thank you to Mpls St Paul Magazine!

EMILY & MATTHEW | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING WITH FAB EVENT DESIGN

Emily & Matthew are one of the funnest, spunkiest (yes, I did just use that word!), most vibrant couples I’ve ever met. They reside in San Fran and planned their wedding from afar, so I didn’t get to meet Emily right away (or Matthew until the day of the wedding!), but I from our very first conversation on the phone, I was really excited about their big day and loved how much they love each other. Emily and Matthew, along with their amazing coordinator, Kirsten of Fab Event Design, planned a bright, fun, bold, graphic celebration and it was just E&M 110%. There were so many unique details (can we talk about the ribbon strung place cards that Kirsten and her crew slaved over for hours?!) and sweet moments throughout this day.  I was in love with their adorable first look, and I was in tears during the first dance (and immediately became obsessed with their song!).

Huge thanks and gratitude to my friend Melissa for shooting this wedding with me and again to Fab Event Design, Pearls and Lace, Jeune Lune,  and all the other top-notch vendors that made this day so perfect.  Enjoy a few of my favorite images.


































kirsten - LOVE. let’s do it again soon!

Helgi - You are sooo good LIV!

Jessica - So lovely! The Jeun Leune is such a gorgous venue and Fab knocked it out of the park! Those tables and the escort cards are amazing!

ANA & CHRIS | NAUTICAL NEW YORK WEDDING

A nautical, summer wedding on the Long Island Sound? Sign me up!! Ana & Chris planned the most adorable wedding, filled to the max with gorgeous details and prettiness! Chris is the cousin of a past bride and I was thrilled to shoot another Gramlich wedding! Although the couple resides in Connecticut, and were married in New York, Ana has Minnesota ties, having grown up there. (So many of my clients have ties in both in states!) Thank you for inviting me to capture your stunning wedding day. A big thanks to my friend Amy, my east coast partner-in-crime, for shooting this wedding with me!

SARAH & ETHAN | MINNESOTA WEDDING ON FILM

Sarah & Ethan are the such a beautiful pair- inside and out. Seriously, their hearts are just overflowing with love and joy and I feel so lucky to have spent the day with them, documenting their story and their first day together as husband and wife. So many incredible vendors made this day possible, but I wanted to give a special thanks to Sarah’s sister and matron-of-honor, Nicole, of Prestigious Petals. Her work is absolutely stunning.

































Helgi - This is amazing!!!!!!

TIFF & THOR | LONG ISLAND WEDDING ON FILM

Tiff and Thor were married at the gorgeous Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport, NY. I hadn’t met Tiff & Thor in person prior to the wedding day, but they immediately felt like old friends since we’ve been Facebook friends since I shot Tiff’s friend’s wedding in 2008! Tiff also happens to be a portrait photographer based in North Carolina, and we’ve followed each other’s work over the years. Tiff & Thor wanted to host an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family and they couldn’t have had a more perfect day. They looked so happy and the details were so much fun! As usual, I found it nearly impossible to narrow down the photos since everything was just stunning. Thank you SO MUCH for including me in your celebration, and a special thanks to my friend Amy of Amy Rae Photography for driving up from Philadelphia to photograph this wedding with me!










































 

Amy - SO BEAUTIFUL!! I am sure they are so happy with the photos!! All your photos turned out amazing!! Thanks for having me Laura!

Jessica - Laura I love this!! Gorgeous venue, lovely chalkboard details, and the ribbon kids are too cute! Beautiful!

Amanda - So happy for Tiff and Thor and so excited that you were able to capture their day! I totally understand why she wanted the best photographer to fly half way across the country to photograph her wedding! Beautiful job as always, Laura.
