Lynnae & Todd — Brackett’s Crossing Wedding in Lakeville, MN

Lynnae and Todd are one of the most down-to-earth, kind hearted, and thoughtful couples I have ever met. For example: I missed dessert due to photographing toasts (a.k.a. doing my job) — this is a frequent and sad event in a photographer’s life (OK, I realize that’s a little dramatic… but I am a HUGE FAN of dessert. That’s putting it lightly.) Long story short, the bride & groom realized I had missed out on their special treat and later in the evening a catering server came up to me with my very own serving of dessert, packed up in a to-go box for me to take home, per the bride & groom’s request. TALK ABOUT LOVE!!!! I mean, I loved this couple from the first time I met them, but this really took the cake. Pun intended.

But enough about dessert… let’s talk about love! This was one of those weddings where everybody in attendance can’t help but have a huge smile on their face. Lynnae & Todd are a beacon of love and they joy they shared on their wedding day was contagious to all in attendance. There’s not a single doubt in my mind that if I were to fast forward 20 years from now, those smiles on L&T’s faces would still be plastered on, filled with the same joy they had on their wedding day. These two are just amazing! Check out their day for yourself:

Alissa & Chris — Camrose Hill Flower Farm Wedding in Stillwater, MN

This wedding is so close to my heart. I had the awesome opportunity to return to the venue that I married my dear husband at, and I got to work with an exceptional couple that – I swear – are my style soulmates. Their wedding day was a perfect mix of emotions: tears were shed, love was spread, and people laughed with immense joy with the bride & groom on their special day. Not a detail of this wedding was overlooked, and the team that pulled it together did an AMAZING job. Alissa & Chris are an amazingly fun and genuinely down-to-earth couple and I could work with them every weekend if my job allowed it!! I often have this feeling of sadness when I’ve packaged up a wedding and sent it off… I don’t want my work with my clients to be done. If only I could become BFFs to them all!! <3
