The bride and groom are getting married at a vineyard in Wisconsin this fall. They wanted to incorporate wine into their engagement session. Why not enjoy a bottle around a campfire with roasted marshmallows. They wanted a warm, cozy vibe to show off the beautiful Minnesota fall days. After the campfire, they headed to downtown Stillwater with Nicole Spangler Photography and did some urban shots, including stopping traffic to get an epic shot of the couple dipping in the middle of the Stillwater lift bride (which is being demolished soon).
Not only did these Florida natives get up at the crack of dawn for their engagement shoot, they battled the cold Chicago weather and rain. When a down pour is on the forecast, most couples would want to reschedule, but Liz and Phil battle the elements. The pouring rain was unrelenting, and didn’t stop for even a second during this shoot. Luckily, we found a few semi-rain free spots where we were able to stay dry…for a little while at least! At the very end of the session Liz and Phil abandoned the umbrella and decided to just go for it, running out into the wide open. They danced, they kissed, they laughed while Artistrie Co. caught every moment for them to remember. While the conditions and weather for this shoot weren’t ideal, we were still able to get great photos of this loving couple and now they have a great story to share!
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…
