ANA & CHRIS | NAUTICAL NEW YORK WEDDING

A nautical, summer wedding on the Long Island Sound? Sign me up!! Ana & Chris planned the most adorable wedding, filled to the max with gorgeous details and prettiness! Chris is the cousin of a past bride and I was thrilled to shoot another Gramlich wedding! Although the couple resides in Connecticut, and were married in New York, Ana has Minnesota ties, having grown up there. (So many of my clients have ties in both in states!) Thank you for inviting me to capture your stunning wedding day. A big thanks to my friend Amy, my east coast partner-in-crime, for shooting this wedding with me!

SARAH & ETHAN | MINNESOTA WEDDING ON FILM

Sarah & Ethan are the such a beautiful pair- inside and out. Seriously, their hearts are just overflowing with love and joy and I feel so lucky to have spent the day with them, documenting their story and their first day together as husband and wife. So many incredible vendors made this day possible, but I wanted to give a special thanks to Sarah’s sister and matron-of-honor, Nicole, of Prestigious Petals. Her work is absolutely stunning.

































Helgi - This is amazing!!!!!!

TIFF & THOR | LONG ISLAND WEDDING ON FILM

Tiff and Thor were married at the gorgeous Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport, NY. I hadn’t met Tiff & Thor in person prior to the wedding day, but they immediately felt like old friends since we’ve been Facebook friends since I shot Tiff’s friend’s wedding in 2008! Tiff also happens to be a portrait photographer based in North Carolina, and we’ve followed each other’s work over the years. Tiff & Thor wanted to host an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family and they couldn’t have had a more perfect day. They looked so happy and the details were so much fun! As usual, I found it nearly impossible to narrow down the photos since everything was just stunning. Thank you SO MUCH for including me in your celebration, and a special thanks to my friend Amy of Amy Rae Photography for driving up from Philadelphia to photograph this wedding with me!










































 

Amy - SO BEAUTIFUL!! I am sure they are so happy with the photos!! All your photos turned out amazing!! Thanks for having me Laura!

Jessica - Laura I love this!! Gorgeous venue, lovely chalkboard details, and the ribbon kids are too cute! Beautiful!

Amanda - So happy for Tiff and Thor and so excited that you were able to capture their day! I totally understand why she wanted the best photographer to fly half way across the country to photograph her wedding! Beautiful job as always, Laura.

KATELIN & JOE | JAMES J HILL LIBRARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Katelin & Joe have the biggest hearts!! I could write a novel about them (appropriate since Katelin is an English teacher and they were married in one of the most beautiful libraries of all times!), but I’ll keep this short and sweet and just share some of my favorite images from their gorgeous day. There were so many fabulous details but since I’m already bogging down your internet browser with a abundance of images, I tried to rein it in as much as I could. Enjoy!!












































Jen O. - Incredibly lovely wedding. I adore the venue and all of the soft blush tones. You captured it beautifully.

Ellie Kilgore - Laura~
Thank you so much for the absolutley breathtaking photos you took of my daughter Katelin’s wedding to Joe! Words cannot describe how beautiful they are to me, especially since I was not able to absorb so much of the day with all the activity of being the MOB! You took our garage/occasional sale finds/decorating and made them look wonderful with capturing the colors and delicate details! Yes, the James J. Hill is a spectacular venue, but it takes a skilled photographer to work with the unique lighting challenges and make things so splendid! You captured my daughter’ s sweet heart and soul and for that I will be forever grateful!
Love And blessings to you!
Ellie Kilgore

Abby Jacobsma - Laura,

Kind Regards,
Abby Jacobsma

Caroline Held - Laura, your pictures are absolutely stunning! You truly captured their infectious joy, and that makes these images so meaningful. Thank you for all you did during the big day! – Grateful sister

Sean - Absolutely beautiful! And what a location, oh my gosh!

COLLEEN & ANDREW | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING ON FILM

I am absolutely smitten with Colleen & Andrew! They are very sweet, down-to-earth, and joyful! Their wedding day was absolutely amazing from start to finish, and their day holds a special place in my heart. I will forever remember Colleen’s speech and her eloquent way with words. She spoke about how her and Andrew had met in French class and that he had pursued her by asking her out for coffee several times. Andrew joked that one of the nicest things about Colleen is her polite demeanor and the subtle nuance between saying no, and not saying yes. (There is a difference!) Although Andrew eventually realized he was being turned down, he continued to ask, and obviously his persistence paid off!

I must mention some of the amazing vendors that made this day so incredible:
Wedding Planner: Joan of Ambiente
Ceremony and Reception: Calhoun Beach Club
Catering: D’Amicos
Florals: A Day in Provence
Makeup: Makeup by Michelle
Calligraphy: Rosann Konieczny
Video: Vibrant Film
Band: The Sevilles

Definitely check out Colleen & Andrew’s wedding film. John from Vibrant Film did a spectacular job and I had tears in my eyes as I watched!

Congrats Colleen & Andrew!
