Sophie & Andy were married at the beautiful Calhoun Beach Club overlooking Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. Friends and family came from all over the world to celebrate, many of the guests coming from Sophie’s family’s native England. Their day also included many nods to the culture including many of the women donning fascinators.  Thanks to Sarah from Lasting Impressions for coordinating this incredible day!

  • Jessica - So so beautiful! This wedding was not only gorgeous, but it was also SO much fun! Loved every minute!

  • Denae Brennan - Laura – incredible photos! SUCH a beautiful day!

  • Sabrina - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! These are just INCREDIBLE!!

  • Ariana - Hey Wedding Lady - What a gorgeous day! Those dahlias by Munster Rose are incredible with the silver sequins!

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!

  • Sarah Trotter - Laura, BEAUTIFUL Work!! You captured the feel of the day perfectly!!

  • John Hoel - Absolutely stunning work Laura! You perfectly captured the emotion, vibrancy, and beauty of Annie and Michael’s wedding. All stunning but Lyla running down the aisle and Annie walking to the first meeting are amazing!

  • Donna Murphy - Laura, Simple amazing! It’s so much fun reliving the day through your artistic photography. Many thanks for such a stellar job!

  • Butch McCartney - Beautiful wedding, Laura! … But their little Frenchie sprinting down the aisle to them is PRICELESS!! Love those photos!

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!!
