Chase and Leah’s Magical Wedding ~ Lake Minnetrista Regional Park Chanhassen, MN

Meet Chase and Leah, the beautiful, enchanting couple I recently met for their wedding! When I first arrived to this fabulous outdoor wedding, the storm clouds (you can see a few in the first couple photos) were rolling in…Luckily, they kept rolling by and the entire wedding was nothing but blue skies! In my opinion, this was one of the most relaxed, go-with-the-flow weddings I have ever been a part of. After getting to know them better, I realized it completely fits their style. These two are definitely meant for each other! I loved how they had a relaxed yet elegant reception, with anyone else, this would be hard to pull off but these two completely NAILED IT. Can I just, say genius on the pizza you guys?! Um, I am still raving to everyone I know about that AMAZING baked potato pizza… YUM!!! Shout out to Pizza Luce, you have some delicious food. If you have never had their pizza I strongly, strongly suggest trying it! Chase and Leah, this was a beautiful wedding, I hope to share many more amazing memories with you and your family. Congrats again!

Behind the Scenes, Wedding Style ~ Red Wing, MN

I was adding finishing touches to this gorgeous wedding session that I shot in March at the St.James Hotel in Red Wing, MN and found this gem. The moment I saw it I giggled to myself because it brought me right back to that day, to that moment I clicked the button on my camera. I smiled as I thought back…

I was trying to figure out how in the world do I fix that curtain way up there. Stand on a chair? No… its not high enough. Stand on a table? No….. its still not high enough. So the monkey in me was like, “should I jump up there? But what if I fall and break a wrist? I won’t be able to shoot this wedding then!” Normally, I don’t get scared to do stuff like that but do you see how small that ledge is?!

All of a sudden, one of her bridesmaids says “watch out, I got this!” She then proceeds to kick off her slippers and shimmies her way up there like a pro! Seriously, I love moments like this! One, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot of her in mid motion going to fix the curtain. She did it with such elegance and grace (two things I wouldn’t have had jumping). And Two. We got the perfect dress shot with out me having to Photoshop the curtains. Win win for everyone!

I just had to share that little fun tid-bit of a behind the scene at this fabulous wedding!

Congratulations again to Chris and Katie!
