Confession: I have way more beautiful weddings to share than I have time to share them!! Since it’s winter and things tend to be just a bit slower around the studio, I wanted to blog this beautiful wedding from summer of 2013 that I didn’t get a chance to previously showcase! Connie & Kelly found a new chance at love and wanted to celebrate their commitment with a beautiful ceremony and soiree at one of my favorite venues, the Calhoun Beach Club! They enlisted Rachelle from Style Architects to expertly design and coordinate their day and every single detail was just perfect.

Heather & Charlie decided to whisk away and celebrate their marriage with their closest friends and family on the beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, at Sandos Playacar Resort. Their day was absolutely perfect and it was so fun to get away from the harsh Minnesota winter and enjoy a few days of idyllic weather. I loved getting to know not only Heather & Charlie, but their friends and family. Destination weddings are special because I get to spend an extended amount of time with my clients and I enjoy it so much! Thanks to everyone for being so welcoming and making me feel like part of the group. I wanted to share just a few of my favorites from this meaningful wedding day. I especially loved Heather & Charlie’s wedding ceremony, as they incorporated their guests with special gifts and readings. Charlie also surprised Heather with a touching rendition of “You and I” by Ingrid Michaelson, sang by a friend. Charlie orchestrated all the guests joining in for the last verse, and it was such a great moment. I am actually recently obsessed with their entire wedding soundtrack- see below!
Congratulations, Heather & Charlie!! You’re beautiful inside and out and I wish you all the happiness in the world!

What a wonderful way to start 2014! Margo and Duncan followed their hearts and eloped to New Orleans. They wanted a special day in a beautiful city to celebrate their commitment. They altered their original wedding plans and decided they couldn’t wait until May to be husband and wife. Their whole day I could feel the excitement! After their intimate ceremony in New Orleans’s City Park with their witnesses, Margo’s sister and her long time boyfriend, by their sides, we explored the city- I could’ve photographed for days- such beauty around every single corner. Thanks to the newlyweds for inviting me along to capture their intimate day.
Susan & Jon were married at the gorgeous Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side. They had the perfect September day for photos at Central Park, then the sweetest ceremony. After that, it was time to celebrate and they hosted perhaps once of the most lavish, yet fun parties I’ve ever attended! This group seriously knows how to have a good time. Enjoy the preview!!
Lauren & Dillon were married on a sunny, September day. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but everything was perfect from start to finish. Lauren & Dillon were the definition of classic beauty and their celebration was so much fun!! Week after week I’m lucky to work with amazing vendors, and this stunning soiree was no exception. Thanks to Sarah of Lasting Impressions Weddings for her impeccable execution of the day. Thanks also to Emily J Hair + Makeup, Martha’s Gardens for the florals, Magnificent Milestones for the stationery suite, and last but definitely not least, the amazing staff at Aria. Congrats to the happy couple! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!
