Refuge Golf Course Wedding – Lauren & Devin’s late summer wedding

I had a great time with Lauren & Devin’s engagement session last fall, and so I was looking forward to meeting all of their friends and family this August. They had a gorgeous day for a wedding at the Refuge Golf Course in Oak Grove, complete with cheesecake (yum!) and a lovely luncheon.

Minneapolis Wedding Photographer – Melanie & Casey’s cannon river winery wedding

Melanie & Casey chose the Cannon River Winery for their wedding, and it is a gorgeous venue set in the rolling hills of farm country. The vineyard was a fabulous setting for photos, and it contained a slightly deteriorated antique barn, which was the perfect site for their ceremony. Then on to the winery building in downtown Cannon Falls for a lovely reception featuring a stunning cake (so pretty!), lots of antique winery details, and a lot of dancing!

Carly & Ryan – gorgeous weather for a southern Minnesota wedding

Carly & Ryan had a gorgeous wedding in Southern Minnesota at the end of June. I was lucky enough to spend the day with them and their friends, starting with the slightly overcast church for family and group photos, then the lovely ceremony, and then with them in the bus to the reception (via a small town). I thought the day was going pretty well, until it went even better during the cocktail hour and the sun and clouds cooperated to create one of the most beautiful sunsets!

Sara & Chris’s stunning wedding at St Olaf

Sara and Chris met at St Olaf college in Northfield, and when it came time to organize their wedding, they of course chose their lovely alma mater. They were blessed with a fabulous day (and a large group of loving family and friends), and we had great fun taking photos all around campus afterward.

Sara was a gorgeous bride, as you can see, and she chose perfect colors for her late spring wedding – bright pink and yellow gerbera daisies and blue bridesmaid dresses. Sara and Chris didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so we took photos of each side before hand.

And of course, all the other St Olaf alumni sang the fight song during the reception.
