Rush Creek Golf Course Wedding Photography | Aly and Bill

Aly and Bill tied the knot on a sweltering summer day in August at Rush Creek Golf Course in Maple Grove, Minnesota. It was a gorgeous scene as they said “I do” underneath their handmade arbor constructed by the groom! They plan to incorporate the arbor into their garden (jealous!) With donuts for dessert, a lego cake topper, those side cut outs on Aly’s lacy wedding gown, and a sunset to die for; their wedding day could not have been anymore amazing! Here’s a peak at some of my favorite images from their special day!

Greysalon Wedding Photography | Meghan and Kyle

Uffda! I’m a bit behind on the blogging and social media scene at the moment, summer is always such a whirlwind of weddings, camping, and trying to squeeze in as much fun in three months as possible! Well, I just dropped the kiddo off at school this morning (tears!) and now have some much needed time to catch up on all of those non-deadline type things that tend to get placed on the backburner during the summer.

We’ll start with Meghan and Kyle’s gorgeous wedding day in Duluth, MN! Ari and I will take any chance we can get to drive north, so when Meghan and Kyle inquired about their wedding day at Greysolon Ballroom in Duluth, MN; we may have done a happy dance or two at the prospect of a Northshore wedding! And this Northshore wedding did not disappoint! It was the perfect weekend filled with both photographing these two, visiting Ari’s friends and family, and sitting on the rock beach in Canal Park and staring out at Lake Superior. Meghan and Kyle were a blast to work with, here’s a peek at some of my favorite photos from Meghan and Kyle’s amazing wedding day up north!

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!
