Thank you so much for your interest in sharing your wedding with A Northwoods Wedding readers! We love sharing beautifully unique Midwest weddings with our audience. In order to preserve fresh ideas, A Northwoods Wedding prefers to feature content that has not yet been published on another blog, though we will cheerfully accept submissions that have been published in print.
WHAT TO SEND:
When submitting work, please include at least 50 unwatermarked web sized photos 650 px wide or a link to your own personal blog post or online gallery. Include photos of details, portraits, ceremony, and reception images. We love the ease of using dropbox to attain your images. Submissions for publication may be addressed to email@example.com.
INFO TO INCLUDE:
Make sure to send a list of the wedding day vendors with their website links formatted as we do at the bottom of our posts. We want to give credit to every creative artist so be sure to collect this information prior to sending your images to ANW. We also love to know the inspiration behind the wedding day, things to include: DIY projects, favorite memories, unique experiences, and any advice you have for future brides.
We need details on the wedding you would like to feature. Please include vendors, designers, and creative talent so that we can credit them as well! Please note, we do our best to respond to each and every submission. However, due to the high volume of submissions, please allow 2-4 weeks for response.
We’re always on the hunt for great real weddings with Midwest style images and thoughtful details. We also publish engagement sessions, however, we lean towards real midwest weddings to feature.
Thank you for considering A Northwoods Wedding!
We look forward to working with you!

I am a wife to my beloved and a devoted puppy mom. I am a wedding blogger, a photographer, a fashion fanatic, and a woman who seeks adventure. I’m just a Midwest gal who loves the north woods and dreads the freezing winters. I never get sick of coconut lattes and I am a big fan of naps. I believe the Midwest has something special to offer: love. Love is meant to be shared, celebrated.
I grew up playing weddings with old lace table clothes and curtains, my love for weddings followed me through my teens and into my college years. I always dreamed that I would become a wedding planner and help brides plan every exquisite detail of the most important day of their life. God had different plans for this girl, I became a wedding photographer and get to help play an amazing role with the couples I love on their wedding days. Recently wed, I got to go through the process from start to finish and I honestly loved every moment, every detail, every unique touch that made our day perfect. The Midwest has a unique vibe and style that is often forgotten, we hope you get to take a piece of the great Northwoods with you today!
Caitilin & Tommy currently live in Hawaii and about a year ago they married at the courthouse. So this past November they wanted to have a celebration at home for friends and family. Tommy is in Naval Special Operations so his schedule is a bit tight so they wed on Black Friday. We took photos at Tommy’s parents hobby farm “Cherry Hill Farm”. The farm provided the perfect country living vibe for their laid back wedding day, captured beautifully by laurie marie photography. We can’t get enough of the beautiful florals (including the brides perfect floral crown) and the infinity scarves paired with the boots! Talk about making a Midwest winter feel fresh and colorful.

Josh and Kelsie wed at Craguns Resort near Brainerd Minnesota and it was absolute perfection. Not only are they both gorgeous, they allowed the day to unfold as if they no one was around and they were in the precious moments together. From the pops of color in Josh’s awesome attire to the blooming florals, each and every detail told a line in their story. Jody Savage Photography was there to capture each and every moment of their stunning day. During the ceremony they branded a bench that Josh had made for them, Josh had found a way to make a custom brand for their special moment. It had started to rain during their ceremony but right before the branding and big kiss the rain stopped and the sun came out. Talk about beautiful timing and perfection, we absolutely love this beautiful Minnesota wedding.
What do you call a couple who finishes medical school two weeks before their wedding? Doctors in love. Haley and Ben met as undergraduates and will soon finish medical school and begin their new lives as married residents. Their classic style was captured beautifully by Three Irish Girls Photography during their engagement session in St. Paul, Minnesota. We love the simplicity, fun, and ease to their engagement photos! What a perfect way to capture a love story and share it with the world…
Hey guys, Jenna here! Almost three years ago we started this blog as a way to showcase how the Midwest truly is best – how love is valued over details. We have posted beautiful weddings and stories and have shared incredible love. When I am not blogging here at ANW I am working on a lot of other things. I am a Midwest and destination wedding photographer, a blogger, and as of recently, a painter.
Today is a day that I have been so excited / nervous / giddy / scared for. I am finally launching my print shop and it’s been something I’ve been working on behind the scenes for the last few months. It all started as a little hobby to de-stress and slow down but it’s become something I find myself doing daily and loving. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve been seeing the frequent posts of watercolor work and the updates on how this little shop of mine has been coming along, but the day is finally here! I’ve curated 32 of my favorite quotes and paintings and created another little corner of the web where you can order prints and doll up your home or be a kind human and gift them to someone you love! (Ahem, awesome gift for the bride to be or to give to all of your bridesmaids! Hello!)

Anna and Mike chose to have an intimate destination wedding in a place that held significance to them and represented them as a couple. Utilizing the true meaning of DIY, they did it all themselves from makeup to music to flowers, this couple kept it special and close to home. But not too close, they chose a favorite vacation spot to have their wedding in Idaho just outside Yellowstone National Forest. The wedding was a weekend retreat for friends and family as the venue doubled as lodging for all the guests throughout the entire wedding bonanza captured by Erin Leigh. The two later had a second large reception to include friends and family in the celebration of their marriage that couldn’t make it to the ceremony.
