Sara and Kyle | Royal Golf Club | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Summer wedding bride and groom Royal Oak Golf Club

Sara and Kyle’s love story began, like so many romantic comedies do, in a bike shop. She was the hip, pretty young customer. He was the handsome store clerk. Fast-forward a few years and they’re getting married at the Royal Golf Club in Lake Elmo, MN.

Upon meeting Sara and Kyle you can immediately tell that these two are the perfect matches for each other. Both Sara and Kyle love the outdoors (we went on a little hike during their engagement session), both are goofy, and both make the other person smile wider than I’ve ever seen anyone smile before!

They were no different on their wedding day…ok there were a lot more happy tears from everyone but the smiles were just as big if not slightly bigger.

And talk about having good luck. The weather for their late-August summer wedding was PER-FECT! I’m talking partially sunny, low 70s, little to no humidity, and *surprise* no rain!!

I’m so happy and excited for Sara and Kyle. Their future looks bright (let’s hope the Best Man’s 10 year plan of living in your basement doesn’t come to fruition). And most certainly, their future looks full of love, support, and happiness!
