Ben's Senior Portraits

Ben is a Hudson High senior, a talented soccer player and such an easy going guy.  We spent some time downtown Hudson and also at the soccer fields.

Ben's blue eyes are amazing.
This is my favorite of the session!
I really love how the soccer pictures turned out.  Ben looks like he could be in a magazine in these shots.


Emily and Jason's Orchard Wedding

Emily and Jason planned a fun orchard wedding with lots of charming hand maid details.  The ceremony and reception were both held at Minnetonka Orchards in Minnetrista, MN.  I love that the couple chose to have some of the Twin Cities best food trucks provide amazing food!  Rusty Taco, Vellee Deli, and Home Street Home provided delicious entrees to choose from.  No tiered cake at this wedding, cupcake truck instead.  A Cupcake Social had several flavor options.  A hot dog vendor, Natedogs, and fireside smores satisfied the guests later in the night. Good eatin' at this wedding! YUM!

I love that the wedding party was small.  The brides two brothers were Emily's maids of honor.  Jason had two best men, his brother and friend.  

The guys in white linen shirts and tan pants looks wonderful!  
The mason jars with flowers along the aisle is perfect.

The orchard also has a vineyard.  Love the soft green look the leaves give, very romantic!

The screened in gazebo was turned into a cigar bar...
The wedding guests had lots of fun yard games to play... horse shoes, bocce ball, a huge yard chess board, bean bag toss (cornhole), and a huge jenga game.
Love the scrabble tiles arranged to spell the bride and groom's names and wedding date among other fun words.  The burlap detail used through out the decor was so pretty.

A big white tent for the reception in a beautiful orchard is such a pretty setting for a reception.  The white twinkle lights and lanterns... magical as the sun sets. 

Laurel and Casey's Wedding

Wow I really love military weddings!  Laurel and Casey were married at The Outing Lodge at Pine Point in Stillwater, MN.  A beautiful turn of the century European style venue surrounded by gorgeous greenery and gardens.  

 I love this tender moment of the bride and her little sister.
 I love the elegance of this gown!  The lace texture the ruffles and beading... beautiful!

 I love that the wedding party wore converse, something Laurel is very passionate about.

 Amazing bouquet!  I love the flowers used and the drama of the dark vine.

 I love this... Maybe mostly because I hold the back of my husband's head the same way.  It is because of the military hair cut?  My husband is soldier, I wonder if this is common.

Formal Marine dress blue uniform, stunning!

 This one just melts my heart.

 The dance floor is in the lowest level which has the feel of an old European pub.

Beautiful wedding, beautiful venue, and a beautiful start to the marriage of Laurel and Casey.
