Minneapolis Wedding Photographer Blue Horse Farm

What could be more perfect than a fall wedding at a horse farm in Wisconsin?! Add a food truck, caricature artist, yard games and some farm cats and you have Saturday afternoon perfection. I was so excited when I was asked to capture Wendi and Mark’s wedding at the Blue Horse Farm in New Richmond. I totally adore barn weddings and their intimate feel. Nadia at A Fine Fete Events was so wonderful to work with during the wedding. All the details were meticulously planned. One of my favorite details was the guest message tree where guests were invited to write a message to the happy couple and hang the message on a tree branch that welcomed everyone into the barn. And the bikes, of course! Wendi and Mark had so many personal touches in the wedding. Wendi’s son walked her down the isle and her daughter played guitar and sang a few songs during the reception. Every aspect was awesome. Enough from me… I will let the pictures do the talking! There are a lot of images. Go slowly and soak it all in! I am so grateful to have been there to watch Mark and Wendi exchange vows. It was an amazing day! And my streak of no rain at my weddings continues! (Knock on wood.)

I have the most beautiful and the most fun clients! I met up with Jake and Salwa in my new favorite Eden Prairie location. The lighting was amazing and I loved the willow trees and tall grasses. I was a bit nervous as Salwa is an amazing photographer herself! I can’t get enough of Little R’s mesmerizing eyes… he is going to be a heart breaker!  This session couldn’t have gone any better. And check out their outfits! Perfection!

I was beyond excited when I got the e-mail from Jackie asking me if I could document her wedding to Michelle. Everything that Jackie and Michelle were planning for their celebration sounded perfect. They were married in a small, outdoor ceremony at the Chart House in Lakeville, MN. The weather was lovely and they were surrounded by people who love them and support them. Their wedding was a great example of a fantastically personal wedding. Jackie spent so much time creating all of the awesome details with the decorations. She made EVERYTHING! Right down to the bridesmaid dresses! Jackie got the flowers from the farmers market in Apple Valley and assembled all 5 bouquets herself. She even made every single pom-pom. All 50 of them! This was the picture perfect DIY wedding. (Etsy has nothing on Jackie!)

The special details complemented the wedding ceremony. Everything was so perfect. So personal. So real. The love these two share is written all over their faces. I was smiling every second of editing their images.

I am so honored to have been able to capture the legal marriage of Michelle and Jackie just one month after Minnesota legalized same sex marriages. I couldn’t be more proud of my state and to be able to capture same LOVE.
