Cassia and Kayeden are just the cutest couple!!! Cassia and I met, which now seems forever ago, to talk about her big day and see if Jessica Wilson Photography was the right fit for her; and what she was looking for in a photographer. As it turns out, we both were pumped for what Minnesota ALWAYS has to offer us in winter months, SNOW! Well, we can never predict mother nature and what she is supposed to offer… The weather was a little off, all over the country, like Minnesota having NO SNOW in December! I was a little sad because I was looking forward to beautiful snowy shots. Then, I finally got to the Chart House, and the moment I saw how the ice on the lake glistened with the little bit of snow along the lake shore, it turned my frown upside down! The temperature that day was not forgiving either, so we had to move fast.
My best photographer moment ever was when I was trying to get a better angle so I took a few steps backwards out onto the lake. Kayeden looked at me with fear in his face and said he just saw fish swimming… right under the water where I was standing! With the lack of snow here in Minnesota, we also had a lack of cold weather so our lakes were not completely frozen yet either. That could have been very bad, but I have to do what I have to do to get the best shot! Despite the elements, your wedding turned out beautiful and I am so happy to have been a part of it.
Congrats again! I wish you two the best for many years to come!
As I sat down to blog about this couple and this wedding, the only thing that came to mind was that these two are made for each other, meant for each other, so in love with each other. That is what this couple is and more, but its one of those things that is really hard to describe, so I took pictures of it instead! I feel like they look like they are the only two people in the world when they look into each others eyes. I love when couples are open to doing funny poses, and out-of-the-norm but also really like the traditional shots too. Cassie, I am a huge fan of the blue shoes! That pop of color is so exciting, different and worked so well with this wedding! I am so glad I was able to capture Cassie dancing with her Father-In-Law. He told me he had to dance with the bride, so grabbed his sombrero and went to dance with her…So hilarious! (Check it out below!) The kiddos did such a great job smiling and making funny faces!
Jake is in active duty military and was transferred to Texas, they moved just after their wedding! Thank you to you Jake, your family and all of those people who serve our country. It is always an honor to meet those who put our lives and country before their own. Again, I really appreciate all that you do!
This was such a beautiful wedding, your photos turned out amazing (despite the crazy wind!) and I hope that you cherish them for many many years to come!
