Amanda & Rich are two Minnesota-native high school sweethearts whose enduring relationship brought them through college & grad school together, then off to New York to begin their budding careers. We are so glad they made their way home to Minnesota to tie the knot this summer! It was such a privilege to work with these two and to see their special day unfold, surrounded by the love of their family and friends, with much class and glamor infused by the talented Amys at Mimi Design.  I still cannot stop obsessing over Amanda’s fabulous Vera Wang gown. I probably say this to every couple—but these two truly belong on top of a cake. What a gorgeous couple and a gorgeous day!! Congrats Amanda & Rich! We adore you guys!

    Amanda - Hurray!!!! We love these photos!! Thank you thank you Jeff and Jessica! XoxoReplyCancel

Few things inspire me more than the chance to work with thoughtful, creative couples like these two! A year ago, before we’d even met to chat photography, Melissa had long been dreaming of this day, mad on the hunt for mismatching china and vintage clocks…Fast forward to this year, on the most perfect Saturday in June, when Melissa & John dazzled their guests by creating a wedding day filled their own imaginative, pretty pastel take on Alice in Wonderland. The whimsical forest and pond surrounding their amazing venue—Juliane James Place in Finlayson, MN created the perfect backdrop for their intimate occasion. Guests arrived at the property to enjoy lemonade, cocktails, and appetizers, then signed their best wishes for the couple on a large decorative clock, before traveling down a narrow walking trail lined with silver flamingos to the ceremony site, finding their seats among an eclectic mix of salvaged church pews, vintage sofas and stuffed chairs. After exchanging vows and hearing a heartfelt blessing from family members, the couple kicked off the party as husband & wife, inviting guests to find their tables by hunting down the vintage clock centerpiece whose time corresponded with their escort cards. Guests enjoyed an exquisite feast from New Scenic Cafe served on Melissa’s carefully collected mix-matched china and tea cups. Afterward, they enjoyed a fabulous dessert bar from Cocoa & Fig and a rad dance party. M&J, thanks so very much for inviting us to capture this dreamy day of yours!! It was such an honor to be a part of the magic!

When Jenna & Brandon first met back in high school while growing up in Montana, they had no idea how many times their paths would eventually cross and part before finally becoming husband & wife. While Jenna attended UW-Eau Claire, Brandon spent his undergrad career at Macalester.  After moving on and establishing their careers in separate states, all of the long distance back-and-forth dating completely solidified their relationship and helped these two amazing people realize that they are even & always better together! It was such an honor for us to share this perfect spring day with Jenna & Brandon and share in the fun of their campus wedding!  Congrats J&B!

    Nikki Frederick - Jenna looks absolutely gorgeous! What beautiful pictures capturing a wonderful couple!ReplyCancel

Photographing Andie & Andrew’s wedding day was a little bit like dying and going to heaven. Not only are these two the most sparkling couple on the face of the earth, they planned and executed every last detail of their wedding day in the most lovely way.  If I could marry Jeff all over again, I imagine it would look very much like this!  It doesn’t hurt that their event took place at one of our absolute favorite venues, Camrose Hill Flower Farm near Stillwater Minnesota.  Their soft, pastel color palette, elegant floral design by Cindie (the flower farm owner), and divine details combined with a whimsical outdoor setting made this perfectly planned day gorgeous beyond words!  Even more radiant than their lovely details, was Andie & Andrew’s unmistakable, tremendous joy in marrying each other!  They waited to see each other until Andie walked down the aisle, where they exchanged heartfelt personal vows, surrounded by so many dear friends and family. Each time I look at these photos, it tugs at my heart all over again and I feel so much joy that these two found each other and started their life as husband and wife in such an extremely beautiful, meaningful way!! And if you can’t get enough of their wedding, hop over here to peek at their beautiful wedding video. Congrats A&A!

    RJ Carbone - The peachy pastel wedding design worked exquisitely well with pristine prairie exterior shots. So serene and organic. Loved the shots of the couple in the field of tall grass! The shot of mommie hugging her daughter was touching. Great pics!ReplyCancel
