Mount Zion Temple Wedding Photography | Elizabeth and Ben

Elizabeth and Ben tied the knot in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at Mount Zion Temple in St. Paul! Their wedding day was filled with quirky little details like rosemary tucked into the floral arrangements (which is totally fitting as the two met after being paired up as a team by mutual friends to compete in a cooking contest) and unique socks match perfectly to the personalities of each member of the bridal party. And, not only did Elizabeth wear her mother’s wedding gown, but Ben also wore his father’s wedding suit! It suited them perfectly!

Here’s a collection of some of my favorite images from their very special day!

Minnesota Lakeside Wedding Photography | Stephanie and Nick

A summer day beside a lake in Minnesota. Does it get any better than that? through a gorgeous wedding in there and it does get even better! Stephanie and Nick tied the knot at Lakeside Ballroom and Chophouse near the family cabin in Glenwood, Minnesota. Here’s a few highlights from their special day!

Stephanie was prepared with two sets of footwear, something cute for the ceremony and a comfy pair of white Brookes running shoes for everything else!

Eagan Community Center Wedding Photograph | Brenna and Josh

Brenna and Josh were married last month at The Eagan Community Center in Eagan, Minnesota. It seems fitting to share these photos with you today, as the snow if coming down like crazy, because their wedding day was on the day of our last big snow storm. It was the classic spring snowstorm of softly falling magical snow (call me crazy, I think it’s magical!) and we were happy to find that Brenna and Josh were just as excited as we were at the end of the night to step out into that softly falling snow for some night photography!

Seven Vineyards Winery Wedding Photography | Julia and Max

Julia and Max tied the knot at St. Mary’s on the Lake in White Bear Lake in January! It may have been a frigidly cold day, but with plenty of velvet and fur to go around, no one even flinched at stepping outside for a few photos! After saying I do, the two celebrated at their reception at 7 Vineyard Winery in Dellwood.
