~M~ Wedding June 20, 2015 {Southern Minnesota Wedding Photographer}

 I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous wedding. C was the most organized bride I have worked with yet, and I loved it! She had lists and timelines all ready for me and all I had to do is show up and capture the day as she saw it. All of her planning paid off. The day went off without a hitch. Well, it may have been a tad hot, but other then that, it was perfect! I had so much fun spending the day with C & P and feel so honored they asked me to capture their day!
 Here are the details:

From the bride: "We absolutely loved our day.  It was everything both of us wanted: meaningful ceremony, whimsical decorations, fantastic food, amazing cake, fun dance, and, above all, many of the best people we know in attendance.  The farm as a backdrop for the reception was an absolute dream.  We will forever fondly reminisce about the details, conversations, and love that we experienced on our wedding day."

Warning, photo overload...there were A LOT of favorites!!




The dress shots are seriously my favorites. The farm was a beautiful place for photos!



How could I NOT use the silo??




So handsome!


Sisters ♥


C wore her mom's veil and I love this moment between them. 


This quilt is C's parent's wedding quilt, she had a bride "moment" when she saw it that morning. 



If that is not a genuine smile, I don't know what is!




Their bride and groom shots are perfection. True emotion and relaxed. Love them!


Her laugh was infectious!

I loved their reception, hot, but a perfect location!

Yes, H had her dog with her :-) 





I love C's laugh, and she was full of smiles that day! 





This is such a great shot of their attitude all day. So relaxed.
