Scott and Holly 01.10.09

Scott and Holly are two amazing people with beautiful hearts. The two met at a local gas station, dated for a while, and then decided to tie the knot only 4 months ago! They quickly planned their winter wonderland wedding which pulled together beautifully. Both were so laid back and totally brave to head out in the freezing cold weather ( I think the high was 17). Thank you so much for heading out in the cold with me! Many blessings to the both of you!
Ceremony Location: Bethlehem Baptist Church; Minneapolis, MN
Shooting locations: Mill City area, Stone Arch Bridge

Vince and Amanda 01.03.09

Absolutely one of my favorite weddings... ever! I can't say enough about this wedding!
Vince and Amanda are an amazing couple. My family drove down to attend and for me to photograph this wonderful couple. My husband and Vince became friends in college and Vince had a profound effect on my husband's faith and walk with Christ. (He was one of the groomsmen in our wedding!) To him I am am forever grateful. We met Amanda in August and realized she was the perfect match for Vince. Both are extremely witty, genuine, fun, and laid back people. (Just my type!) This played itself out in the photos. The day of the wedding we did a few different shots around the church and at the reception site, but my favorites are the photos taken downtown Chicago the day after the wedding, something I would highly recommend! Because the couple loves the city, we wandered around the downtown streets and shooting at various places; The Art Institute, The "Bean" and even a Subway station before they took off on their Europe honeymoon!
Many thanks to both of you for allowing me to be a huge part of your day! We love you and pray God's blessing over you as you enter this amazing covenant of marriage! Hope these can tie you over for awhile! Thanks also for loving Lydia who was memorized and enticed by Amanda's beauty and was the only child completely unaware that she was standing right in the middle of the dance floor during their first dance!

Luke and Marissa 12.23.08

She had the dress. He had the rings. They tied the knot!
Luke and Marissa had been waiting for the perfect occasion to get married and on the 23rd of December, they were married on a carriage ride around the Mississippi mile area. We got together an hour before they were married and walk all around the romantic Nicolette Island Inn hotel in Minneapolis and took advantage of the Christmas decorations. What a sweet evening for a wonderful couple. Congrats!
