Aria Wedding | Minneapolis, MN | Morgan & John

Morgan and John are the sweetest! These cheery lovebirds smile through everything that comes their way and have a way of making everyone around them feel at ease. Even the coldest of Minnesota winter temperatures couldn't keep these two from beaming.

A few of my favorite memories from their wedding day: Their officiant was a family member, friend and first-timer at leading nuptials, and he had everyone in tears with his comical anecdotes-- he may have found his new calling. 

The wedding party was a great gang of friends and they stuck together as a group, joining the bride and groom in celebration all day long. You'll see them on the dance floor together in the video from Vaughter Weddings below. Love it!

Morgan & John let their love and their loved ones be the focus at this celebration. By focusing their decor on lighting, specifically candlelight, up-lights and cafe lights, the mood in the room was perfect for great conversation and celebration.

Day Block Event Center Wedding | Natalie & Alex

Natalie and Alex were a dream to work with! It always took us a while to get down to business when we met because we always had so much to chat about. It's just to fun to have fun! ;)

A couple of my favorite moments from their wedding day at Day Block Event Center

#1: These two had a private first look, and then had their photographer join them after. I thought it was so great that these two felt confident about setting their own priorities for the wedding day to have the special moments they wanted most. 

#2: These two love their pup, Kato. He made an appearance for photos before the ceremony and was also featured on all of the table number cards. 

#3: When Alex proposed to Natalie, he had decorated a park with tons of string lights and had giant glittery white letters that said "Marry Me." Those letters were on display at the wedding on their dessert table. Adorbs!  And for dessert they had Sara's Tipsy Pies, deliciously boozy little hand-pies. Yum!

#4: Those shoes. That dress. I mean, come on. GORGEOUS! <3

Solar Arts by Chowgirls Wedding | Sula & Danny

I was lucky enough to be added to Sula & Danny's wedding day team just about two weeks prior to their wedding day, and what a joy it was! I was so glad to help out and be the extra set of hands these two needed so they could enjoy their day with their loved ones and get lots of great photos. These two have a contagious enthusiasm about them and were super fun to work with! 

A couple of my favorite things about their wedding day:
#1: Beautiful Sula rocked two different dresses on her wedding day, but neither were traditional wedding gowns. She chose pieces from her favorite designers so she could wear them again. Cool! 

#2: Their guest favors were little single-source honey jars from Ames Farm. A local gift for their guests that had traveled from all over to be there - nice! Plus, they said "Sula & Dan - Meant to Bee," on them which is totally adorable. (Side note: Bee puns will forever remind me of that one Simpson's Valentine's episode where Ralph falls in love with Lisa.) 

#3: They brought in several different cakes from Cafe Latte so their guests could have fun choosing which one (or two) to have a piece from. Everyone was super excited about this!

I loved this day! Thank you to Sula & Danny for including me on your team!
