Belmir + Amanda’s Wedding ~ Como Zoo St.Paul, MN

Belmir and Amanda just fit together perfectly. I love when couples share their little back stories with me. Turns out, these two are high school sweet hearts! AWWW! Finding your true love so soon is so beautiful and something to be cherished, not everyone is that blessed. I sometimes get a little nervous when brides call me up and tell me they need to change something, but this time I was very excited! I received the call from Amanda, who told me she had changed her venue. I definitely did a mini happy dance when she told me the change. They got married at Como Zoo and Conservatory right here in St. Paul, MN. Can you say gorgeous!

We started our day at Belmir and Amanda’s home for all of the getting ready photos, LOVE the personal touch of their home. We then rush out the door to get to the Zoo for their first glance photos, I just adore these shots because they show so much emotion. The zoo Closes to the public at 4pm so we were on a time crunch because we wanted to get a picture of the bridal party on the amazing carousel! How fun is that?! Seriously?! The mad rush was completely worth it. I rode the carousel with them and captured them just joking around and having fun! It is so in the moment and something I haven’t done before with a wedding. The sun started to set as we wrapped up pictures and we headed inside to rush back out the door quick for some gorgeous sunset shots. Minnesota fall sunsets are just to die for, especially when you have the stunning backdrop of the conservatory (where they got married) in it.

I wish you guys nothing but the best! I can’t wait for you guys to start having little babies! Congrats!

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!
