Elisa & Pino Married

I don't know whether I can come up with the right words to properly explain the amount of love and glamour that Elisa & Pino's wedding had. I have LOVED spending time with Elisa & Pino over the past few months and getting to know the incredibly genuine, kind, loving, people that they are. They welcome you with love and open arms from the very moment you meet them, and it doesn't fade over any extended amount of time. Their wedding day was a perfect reflection of exactly who they are, and I had the most difficult time narrowing this post down!! So here we go -- these are just a few of my favorite moments from E&P's beautiful wedding at the historic St. James Hotel in Red Wing. Enjoy!! ♥

Abby & Jake Married

This wedding holds a special place in my heart. It was a beautifully emotional day, an insanely gorgeous venue, and a bride & groom who have a love that is so wonderful to watch. Plus, they know how to throw a party!! :) Abby was a seriously stunning bride, and I may or may not have caught Jake shedding a tear at the sight of her. I cannot confirm or deny that statement... but his love for her sure makes me melt! Couples in love are what I live for and these two gave me NO shortage of that!

Abby & Jake, thank you for allowing me to witness these moments. To everyone enjoying their photos -- I hope you can feel all the wonderful emotions of their day. Enjoy!
