Kirsten and Mike | The Loft at Studio J | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Kirsten and Mike’s wedding at the Loft at Studio J in Stillwater, MN was SO. MUCH. FUN. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a long time!

Their goofiness and radiant smiles infected all of their guests. As the day and evening progressed, the jovial energy grew until it exploded in an all out dance party, aided by the live band led by one of Mike’s friends.

The day could not have been any more perfect. The sun was shining (hello Summer, glad you finally arrived), the temps were pleasant, the company was perfection, and the food…omg you guys…the food! If you ever need a caterer please do yourself a favor and go with Lake Elmo Inn. They’re the best in the biz!

I know I said this in Kirsten and Mike’s engagement post, but it feels like the three of us were destined to meet and be friends. Their laidback, dorky energy completely vibes and meshes with my own. It was so easy to work with them – if you can even call it work because it wasn’t.

If I were to describe the day in three words they’d be: jovial, heartfelt, and celebratory.

Kirsten and Mike, thank you so much for coming into my life. You two are so loving, can read each other so well, and I know you two will continue to write an amazing, adventure-filled love story. Can’t wait to see how the next chapter in your story unfolds. Love you both to pieces!!
