When we first met Breanne & Jon and heard their vision of a casual, outdoor, sweet summer celebration, we just knew their style & personalities would be a perfect fit and we felt so excited to capture their story!  The day it all came together, a warm sunshiny Saturday in July, their dear family and friends gathered at Shepherd’s Hill Farm. Their community of loved ones pitched in their creativity and talent to make the day even more meaningful and beautiful: Breanne knew she wanted someone with a lot of marriage & life experience to officiate their ceremony, and so her sweet grandfather stepped up and became ordained just for the occasion! Hearing him speak and help them say their vows had me all choked up—so I can’t even imagine how precious it was for their families to witness!! A talented friend put together the most lovely floral arrangements, including flowers piled on an ornate glass candelabra, which was the centerpiece of their airy white tent reception.  And oh my, how we drooled over their amazing food: their guests ate like kings, sharing platters of wood-fired gourmet pizzas, cooked on site by Thyme to Entertain.
This day could not have been more perfect, for two people who are completely perfect for each other.  Breanne & Jon, we loved stepping into your sweetest day, and we are so jealous of your upcoming honeymoon in Eastern Europe!!

The last few weeks have been a little topsy-turvy for us, but a few pieces of happy news in our mailbox have brought huge smiles to our faces!  First of all, it was a tremendous honor to be featured in Minnesota Bride for the first time, not once, but TWICE!!  This was a huge goal of ours, and I may have done a little jumping up and down to see Bridget & Andrew‘s gorgeous farm wedding + our Library Love inspiration shoot in print. If you haven’t flipped through it yet, you definitely need to pick up this issue, Spring/Summer 2012, on newsstands. Our work aside, this magazine is seriously packed with so much eye-candy, you’ll be blown away!minneapolis-wedding-photographer-020212-03minneapolis-wedding-photographer-020212-05minneapolis-wedding-photographer-020212-02
AND one more thing.  This is seriously the sweetest thank you we’ve ever seen from a client.  Apparently 3-year-old Nola had such a blast at her family’s photo shoot last week that she went home to create Jeff’s likeness in crayon. It just can’t be beat: minneapolis-wedding-photographer-020212-04Doesn’t he look so great in a dress!? So cute! Thanks Nola!
