The Woods Chapel

Woods Chapel Wedding Photography Minneapolis MN

I was so excited to capture Maureen and Matt’s wedding day! It’s always such an honor to me to be able to be a part of a wedding ceremony. I love being able to capture the love and the coming together of two people who are made for each other. Matt and Mo are no different. Their love for each other is limitless. They have two of the most giving and loving souls. I’m so lucky to have captured their wedding. They were married at The Woods Chapel in Orono. The Woods is amazing! They have it set up with a beautiful fountain in the middle of the woods, guests sit in the round during the ceremony and there is a wonderful cottage with amazing light for the bride and groom to get ready in. Ali and Patrik provided the ceremony music. The possibilities were endless for places to capture fun and formal wedding poses. Rain threatened the wedding but it stayed away! Following the ceremony, the bride and groom took the back roads with the MG to their reception at the fantastic Crown Plaza Plymouth. The day couldn’t have been more perfect.

Oh my gosh! I was so lucky to be able to photograph the wedding of Michael and Jamie! They are such a sweet and adorable couple! They had a fabulous DIY backyard wedding at Jamie’s parents home in the suburbs of Minneapolis.It couldn’t have been more perfect! The weather was picture perfect and there were so many adorable details that Jamie incorporated in her wedding reception decorations. Don’t you just love the suitcase for the cards? ADORABLE! I love a wedding that has a lot of great details for me to photography. Their wedding had so many personal touches. The flowers were beautiful! The pink and green hues worked so well together and complemented the setting so well! There were signs posting the way as guests arrived and ended with a cute sign that read, “As two families are becoming one, we ask that you choose a seat and not a side.”. A couple of my favorite images from this wedding are the snapshots of both dads during the ceremony. I have to say that backyard weddings are some of my favorite. I might be biased though… I had a backyard wedding… 13 years ago this month! Where does the time go? Minneapolis Backyard Wedding Photographer | Michelle Tanner

These two. Adorable. One is mine, the other is Bethany’s! Both are kids of photographers and both are named after musicians. It just seemed so perfect to have a rock and roll inspired shoot in St. Louis Park. We got together today for a little playtime with the cameras at the park. Child sessions are one of my favorite but you sure could tell that these two have photographers for moms.

St. Louis Park’s convenient location as a neighbor to Minneapolis means you’re only minutes away from some of the Twin Cities’ most attractive amenities: the Chain of Lakes, the downtown theater district, shopping, universities and major league sports.
