Ahhh, remember this beauty of a wedding?! Bridget and Mike’s gorgeous soiree, which was expertly coordinated by Amy Red and Amy Blonde over at Mimi Design, was published in The Knot Minnesota Magazine! I adored this unique modern wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Calhoun Beach Club, with it’s fun palette of ivory, greens and orange, and I have a special place in my heart for the bride and groom, who are truly one of the sweetest, most appreciative couples I’ve ever worked with!

It’s supposed to be spring but it’s currently snowing here in Minneapolis.  I know, I know; I shouldn’t be surprised.  I’ve lived here most of my life and it frequently snows in April (and sometimes even in May), but Mother Nature is torturing us given that temps were soaring and sunny last week, and this week it’s back to gloom and doom!

Ok, enough talk about the weather.  I’m escaping in my mind and reliving Maggie and Vinny’s gorgeous wedding day in the rolling hills of Vermont.  Sure, it rained, but it was a green and beautiful and who doesn’t love New England in the fall?!  Maggie & Vinny’s vibrant colors were very decidedly non-traditional for the fall and matched their sunny personalities.  I loved all the gorgeous details at the Alerin Barn, but even more so, I loved working with this amazing couple and their family and friends!  Their wedding was selected to be featured in South New England Weddings Destination edition.  Congrats Maggie & Vinny!!

I recently dusted off my old, manual, 35mm camera from my high school/college darkroom days.  Even though not much can break on these old, seemingly indestructible cameras, I toted the camera around in my purse for a few days to shoot a roll of film, just to test everything out.  Turns out the camera/lens function perfectly and I’m really loving the results.  The camera is super small, lightweight and compact, so it’s easy to carry everywhere.  It will definitely make a fun travel camera.

Jenna and Chris were married at the gorgeous Enchanted Barn in Hillsdale, Wisconsin. The bride & groom reside in NYC, but wanted a wedding that was decidedly “country” and I don’t think they’re could’ve picked a better location. It was a chilly fall day, in late October, but the sun peeked out during our photos and it was warm and cozy inside the barn!
