Mayowood Stone Barn

Kellie with Rustic Elegance and I toured Mayowood Stone Barn, located in Rochester, MN. This beautiful brick barn has become one of my favorite wedding venues! This venue is perfect for the wedding day: there’s a gorgeous bridal suite, a manly groom’s lounge, an indoor ceremony location decorated with cafe lights and a chandelier, an outdoor wedding ceremony location by a large Oak Tree, and a breathtaking indoor reception room. Up to 250 guests can comfortably fit at harvest style banquet tables in the reception room. There is also dancing allowed in the barn and plenty of room outside for games to entertain your guests during cocktail hour and the reception.

Leigh Anne and A.J.’s wedding was at Anderson’s Horseshoe Bay Lodge in Walker, Minnesota. I had a blast coming back to my hometown of Laporte, MN to photograph Leigh Anne and the ladies getting ready at Halo Salon. Leech Lake served as a beautiful background for their ceremony site. Their bright blue, pink, and orange wedding colors were absolutely perfect for a summer wedding. Even without sunny, blue skies, we got a lot of amazing shots. Dark, cloudy, semi-threatening weather can provide for some pretty dramatic photos. Luckily, we made it through the day without any rain! Congrats again you two! P.S. Aren’t the flower girl and ring bearer adorable!?
