Old timey castles, mist in the sky, and greenery as far as the eye can see. Sounds more like a description of a quaint wedding in Scotland rather than one just north of Minneapolis, MN but earlier this fall, Danielle and Peter’s Edinburgh USA Golf Course wedding in Brooklyn Park, MN felt like it was picked up and plunked down in the Scottish capital.
Seeing as it’s now the end of October, one of two things comes to mind. 1) I super miss being able to trick or treat because free candy is the best and 2) the holidays are approaching and I need to start planning what to gift my people, especially the male people in my life because I just suck and coming up with ideas for them.
After searching a bit online, I stumbled upon an article entitled, “Christmas Gift Ideas for Every Type of Guy.”
You said yes to the dress, you found the perfect shoes, and now you’re on the quest to find those oh so special bridal accessories. We’re talking earrings, necklaces, and bracelets – all of the items that will complete your wedding day look.
But you don’t want just any jewelry. You don’t want jewelry that a hundred other brides will wear on their weddings, right? You want bling that’s just as unique and one-of-a-kind as your ring and your dress. In other words, you want custom designed pieces, hand-crafted by individuals who care about you.
You’re in luck! Why? Because I’m sharing my personal favorite accessory vendors with you!
Talk about perfection. Karen and Matt’s Muse Event Center wedding in Downtown Minneapolis, MN was the definition of the perfect Fall wedding. The sun was out but it wasn’t too hot, the shade was cool but not cold, the décor and venue were astonishingly beautiful, and the company…the company was warm, goofy, and filled with so much love.
Annie and Phil’s family farm wedding in Chisago City, MN was, in one word, magical. Weather reports did not look favorable – strong thunderstorms were likely and it was raining on the drive up – but as soon as we arrived to Annie’s sister’s house, the sky opened up and the sun started to shine.
Ever since FIVE Event Center in Uptown Minneapolis, MN opened it’s doors I’ve been dreaming about photographing a wedding there. Kory and Andrew made that dream a reality with their gorgeous wedding.
And when I say gorgeous, I mean GORG.E.OUS! If there was an award for the best dressed wedding party and family, it would, without a doubt, go to Kory and Andrew’ and their peeps.
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.
Ojiketa Regional Park, located outside of Forest Lake in Chisago City, MN, has a cute little camp perfect for outdoorsy, canoe loving people. It also is the home of Strom Hall, the venue for Jess and Hannah’s summer wedding.
And when I say camp, I’m not talking about the sleeping in tents type of camping you’d normally associate with regional park camping. Rather, there were clean cabins some with had actual showers!
Hey friends! I’m looking for fun-loving, dependable, love-obsessed to join my team as second shooters and associate photographer(s) for the 2020 wedding season!
