Heather & Charlie’s Wedding ~ Afton, MN Avonlea Farms

If I had to use only two words to describe this wedding, it would be: rustic elegance. There is so many details and personal touches that go into these weddings. I think these are some of my favorite weddings to capture, and I think its because this is so close to my style. I felt right at home, almost like I put the whole thing together myself (I didn’t). I think Heather is a natural in front of the camera, some people are hard to capture and she is NOT one of them. It was so hard to narrow down her images, she is so photogenic that they all turned out so beautiful. The bridal party was so awesome, I was horrible at remembering names, but they all put up with me asking names over and over again. In Minnesota, they always say that the weather changes every five minutes… not this day! It was perfect all around. I always prefer the cooler days because of all the running, and Heather was pretty happy because her dress got hot and heavy very quickly so the cooler air was nice for her too. You can’t tell in her pictures though! I am sure Charlie was happy as well, since those suits get pretty warm too!

Finally, talk about an unbelievable sunset. I was inside the barn capturing the memories there, when I popped my head out the upstairs window to take some shots and I saw the amazing cotton candy sky. These skies just don’t happen everyday! I almost tripped twice running outside to get Heather and Charlie, who were already outside. I ran up to them so excited about the sun set, when Heather turned around and saw it she gasped and grabbed Charlie. We ran to the field, she was wearing boots so she could really run! We got everything set up, and WOW. I can’t even describe it. I think that this sunset is one of the best ways to describe Heather and Charlie. There isn’t a word for it, but its a moment that you see and all the feels come out.
Congrats again Heather and Charlie, I cannot wait to capture more of your precious moments!
Oh and the frog! Heather used to work with amphibians’ so when we saw the cute little frog hopping around, getting a picture with it was necessary!
