Chelsea & Brian’s day was so perfect! I first met this couple when I photographed Chelsea’s sister’s wedding last year and I was so happy when they contacted me after they got engaged. I felt like an old friend, and when I left the wedding, Chelsea’s dad gave me a kiss on the cheek and told me I was part of the family! It might’ve been one of the very sweetest moments of my career and I feel so incredibly lucky to work with such genuine couples and families.
But let’s talk more about Chelsea & Brian! They met working at Target Corp and through the heartfelt toasts I learned how as their relationship grew, they met each other’s families and about how Brian didn’t exactly impress the fam with his board game skills, but won Chelsea’s heart anyway! ;) Their day was simple yet beautiful. Easy, just like their relationship. The way they interact and smile at each other feels so loving and so real. Their beloved pup, Addison, made a cameo! It was a fun day and a perfect start to what I have no doubt will be a strong marriage. Chelsea & Brian, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day! I adore you both!

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Tanya and Matt chose the gorgeous Semple Mansion to celebrate their day! I absolutely love this venue and was oohing and ahhing over all of the gorgeous details. Tanya’s ballgown was stunning and so her, and both Tanya and Matt were all smiles all day!! I’m so lucky to work with such joyful couples that are so in love and excited to spend their lives together. The decor and flowers and shoes are fun, but truly, a happy bride and groom are what it’s all about! Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day!

Mary Beth & Fred were married on warm and gorgeous summer day! They began their celebration at the historic Our Lady of Lourdes church near downtown Minneapolis, then guests hopped over to the shores of beautiful Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, MN for a tented party overlooking the water on Fred’s family’s private residence. Near the end of cocktail hour, the weather suddenly changed and if rain (or sudden downpours) is considered good luck, I think Mary Beth and Fred are destined for a lifetime of happiness!
After a wild party with amazing entertainment from the band, and a sparkler exit, the newlyweds jetted off to Europe for a dream honeymoon with stops including Tuscany and Santorini! I may or may not have staked their Instagram accounts for teeny peeks!
Huge, huge thanks to the amazing vendors involved! I feel very lucky to work with such talented and passionate people and I know they all helped execute the perfect day for this sweet couple!
