The forecast had been predicting rain on their big day all week. Luckily, instead of any downpours, it was just the most lovely, romantic mist and fog. For a farm ceremony and a lakeside reception….it doesn’t get better.
Fall can’t be beat in Northern Minnesota. But I will admit it’s tricky to time, as every year is different. This couple couldn’t have been luckier with the timing. The leaves were at peak, and it hadn’t turned too cold yet. Well, I guess that point could be argued. It was 36 degrees….but I wasn’t the one in a sleeveless gown. :) I had so much fun capturing their stunning day.
Small, intimate weddings have officially won my heart. This recent Gunflint Trail wedding was no exception. Set at the lovely Poplar Haus, officiated by the brides sister, and with only the couple’s closest family and friends in attendance…there was nothing but love in this couple’s big day. Love and a really beautiful setting….
I was so happy I was able to coordinate with these two for a maternity shoot while I was back in MN! People honestly don’t come any sweeter, and their love and excitement for their little one on the way was so fun to capture. With these two as parents, she’s going to be one blessed babe!
Last year when taking my maternity/family photos, I made Jess shoot through the thickest falling snow ever. It made for such a gorgeous backdrop, but it also made it hell on Jess being she couldn’t even use auto focus on her camera it was so heavy. I should have known when we set a date for her family photos, it was was going to snow like crazy. Payback it rough. :) Luckily it let up just before our shoot time and left us with just the most perfect blanket of freshly fallen snow.
If rain on a wedding day is good luck….this couple is going to be the luckiest couple ever. It seriously never…stopped…raining. And of course they had planned for the sweetest little ceremony and reception to be outside. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. But between using roofs, dodging drops, and a giant umbrella, we were still able to get some of my favorite wedding photos to date!
I’ve been taking this little guy’s pictures since he was just a little gomper….and it was so enjoyable to shoot the whole family this time….doggy included. Speaking of which, just know that if you bring your pup to a shoot….there’s a good chance you’ll get just as many photos of just your dog, as family images. I love dogs. :)
This laid back, northwoods wedding will definitely go into the books as one of my favorites. Any wedding that requires taking a boat to….is my kind of wedding. Taking place at a remote canoe outfitter base on the edge of the BWCAW, the setting honestly couldn’t have been prettier. Couple that with lovely details, a sweet couple, and a ton of love poured into the day….woodsy perfection.
Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful autumn day for this lovely couple’s wedding. Add in a gorgeous, quaint chapel and the shores of Lake Superior….can’t be beat.
