EMMA, ALEX & ROY | WAYZATA ENGAGEMENT

Meet Emma, Alex and their brand new pup, Roy.  I’m sort of obsessed. Not only with this adorable, sweet, big-hearted couple, but obviously with Roy as well.  It had to actually tell myself to stop cuddling Roy and start taking photos.  He’s that cute.  I love when my clients want to incorporate their furry family members into their photos!  We had the perfect summer night for photos.  Can’t wait for the big day next June at the gorgeous Camrose Hill Farm!!

ANNIE, MICHAEL & LYLA | SEMPLE MANSION WEDDING

Everything about Annie & Michael’s wedding day was absolute perfection.  The words for an equally perfect blog post are failing me, so instead I’ll leave you with some (okay, many!) images from their day.  It’s hard to miss their adorable Frenchie, Lyla, who made flew all the way from LA with Mom & Dad to not only steal the show during photos, but to join the newly married couple for their walk down the aisle after they were pronounced man and wife!  The Semple Mansion was the perfect backdrop for the day.  Special thanks to the amazing vendors including Annie’s mom, who happens to be an incredible florist and owner of Celebrations Floral Design, Sarah of Lasting Impressions Weddings, John from Vibrant Film (you must check out Annie & Michael’s brilliant wedding day film here!!  Get your tissues ready), and the delightful team at Cocoa & Fig for the drool worthy dessert table.  ENJOY!

ALEX & CHLOÉ | WEDDING ON ELK RIVER

Congrats to Alex and Chloé! Their wedding day was so full of joy and unique personal touches. Everything had a story and I love that! When it came to a location for their ceremony, there really was no question- they would be married on Chloé’s family’s gorgeous, wooded property on Elk River. The backdrop was absolutely perfect and so sentimental. The bride and groom are both artists- the Chloé a talented painter, and Alex is a wedding photographer (such an honor to capture the big day of a fellow photographer!) and their creative personalities came through in every aspect of their day. The vibe was fun, laid back, and it was all about the celebration of marriage. I hope you enjoy the preview!!

ALEXANDRA & STEPHEN | LAKESIDE WEDDING IN WAYZATA

Alex & Steve are married! They were exchanged vows at St Martin’s by the Lake in Minnetonka Beach and hosted a tented reception at the bride’s family home in Wayzata. It turned out to be the perfect day for an outdoor cocktail hour and reception. Alexandra enjoyed planning her own wedding so much, that she recently launched her own company, Sable Event Styling & Design! With her talent and exquisite taste I have no doubt she’ll have great success! Congrats to the happy couple and cheers to new adventures!
