COLLEEN & ANDREW | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING ON FILM

I am absolutely smitten with Colleen & Andrew! They are very sweet, down-to-earth, and joyful! Their wedding day was absolutely amazing from start to finish, and their day holds a special place in my heart. I will forever remember Colleen’s speech and her eloquent way with words. She spoke about how her and Andrew had met in French class and that he had pursued her by asking her out for coffee several times. Andrew joked that one of the nicest things about Colleen is her polite demeanor and the subtle nuance between saying no, and not saying yes. (There is a difference!) Although Andrew eventually realized he was being turned down, he continued to ask, and obviously his persistence paid off!

I must mention some of the amazing vendors that made this day so incredible:
Wedding Planner: Joan of Ambiente
Ceremony and Reception: Calhoun Beach Club
Catering: D’Amicos
Florals: A Day in Provence
Makeup: Makeup by Michelle
Calligraphy: Rosann Konieczny
Video: Vibrant Film
Band: The Sevilles

Definitely check out Colleen & Andrew’s wedding film. John from Vibrant Film did a spectacular job and I had tears in my eyes as I watched!

Congrats Colleen & Andrew!


































PUBLISHED | MINNESOTA BRIDE MAGAZINE & WISCONSIN BRIDE MAGAZINE

Double hooray!!! Two of my fantastic, amazing, and stylish clients had weddings featured in Minnesota Bride Magazine and Wisconsin Bride Magazine!! First up are Heather & John. Their classic wedding at the James J. Hill Library in downtown Saint Paul, was selected to be featured in Minnesota Bride Magazine. I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Minnesota Bride is such a fabulous mag and I am as obsessed with it now as I was when I planned my own wedding, ahem, 7 years ago! Please pick up a copy and check out their gorgeous wedding!! I must also mention Heather & John’s planner, Laura, of Laura Mullen Event Design. Laura is amazing at what she does and her events always shine with so many unique yet effortless details. I don’t think we’ve ever done a wedding together that hasn’t been published, and it’s due to our fantastic clients, of course, but also Laura’s talent and creativity.  Other top-notch vendors such as A Day in Provence, Cocoa and Fig and many more contributed to this elegant affair!

One state over, Amy & Garret’s destination wedding in Trego, Wisconsin was featured in Wisconsin Bride Magazine. I absolutely adore Amy & Garret. They are a fun, vibrant and vivicous couple and planned a weekend celebration that was centered around their families & friends. They are the kind of couple that can make you laugh until you cry, but I still somehow managed to document their day with tears in my eyes! ;) Their gorgeous wedding brightened the pages of WI Bride and I am so delighted to see their wedding in print! PS- Happy first anniversary you two!!

These weddings are just a small sampling of the gorgeousness that lies within the pages of these publications.  Seriously, pick up a copy in print and enjoy!!  Thank you MN and WI Bride for the features!



 

ELENA & ANDREW | CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Meet Elena & Andrew. Elena & Andrew live in Chicago. Andrew found me randomly via the internets, and from our first conversation on the phone, I was beyond excited about their big day. I have to be honest about something. Andrew is a really talented photographer, and although I’ve photographed many photographer’s weddings, it’s always just a smidge more nerve-wracking shooting for someone that also shoots weddings. But our visions aligned. Andrew (and Elena) trusted me implicitly and I have to thank them for that trust. Not to mention, I had the best second shooter a girl could ask for; my dear friend Yazy, of YazyJo Photography. Yazy is so very talented, you must check out her and her husband’s work.

Andrew and Elena are genuine and sweet and they made me feel so welcomed from the first second I met them, which happened to be at their rehearsal dinner! Their friends and family were equally as welcoming. They had huge, infectious smiles on their faces ALL DAY LONG!! You wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at these photos, but it was downpouring the morning of their wedding. As the bride and groom got ready in their separate hotel rooms, I doubted we’d even be able to do outdoor photos, much less have the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour they had planned. But wouldn’t you know, the clouds parted, literally, right as we were scheduled to begin photos, and Andrew and Elena had the outdoor ceremony and sunshine they had dreamed of.

Andrew and Elena, thank you times one million!! I couldn’t say enough good things about you! How did I get so lucky to have such amazing, caring, fun, sweet clients?! Since you both love traveling so much, I hope to see you in NYC or Minneapolis soon!
