Rolling Ridge Event Center | Outdoor Wedding | Saint Paul Wedding Photographer

Kasi and Courtney had their wedding at¬†Rolling Ridge Event Center, a beautiful outdoor wedding venue with a barn reception space. They loved the rustic setting with the barns and loved the idea of having the rock wall be their ceremony backdrop. After the reception in the barn, the party was moved outside for dancing under the string lights. Since they have a blended family, it was important to Kasi and Courtney to include their seven kids in their special day. So they had their kids be apart of their unity ceremony and the wedding party! Kasi and Courtney first met when Courtney was coaching Kasi’s eldest son’s hockey team. They got to know each other throughout the hockey season, and their kids became good friends. Eventually, Courtney and Kasi fell in love and it led to a special moment while on vacation in South Dakota. Courtney, Kasi, and six of their seven kids were on vacation and Kasi was the only one not in on the plan. Courtney took the kids shopping and instructed Kasi to go by herself the prettiest dress she could find. When Courtney returned with the kids, they were all dressed up. The family went to Mount Rushmore where Courtney popped the question! His daughter captured it all on video!

Erin and Chris had their art deco wedding at Minnesota Boat Club in St. Paul, MN. They had a small, intimate wedding outside of the boat club and then more guests joined them for the reception. Their day was all about family and friends from across the country coming together to have a great time along the Mississippi River and the Saint Paul skyline! During the reception, guests had so many fun options for how to spend the evening. There was corn hole, ladder ball, hammerschlagen, sketch artists, and even Apples to Apples. We even got to wander over to Raspberry Island to get some amazing portrait shots of Erin and Chris! Their planner, Ask for the Moon Events, did an amazing job helping the couple plan their day and organize all of the fun!

Katie and Calvin met in drama class at Century College and then they both attended Minnesota State University Mankato together. During Katie’s senior year at Mankato, Calvin took her to see Beauty & the Beast at Chanhassen Dinner Theaters. He popped the question there and they received a standing ovation from the crowd! For their big day, they decided to say “I do” in Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens in Minneapolis. Joanne, their event planner with¬†Best Day Ever!, helped them create a beautiful day in this gorgeous space! One of my favorite parts of the day was the couple’s first look during the ceremony. Calvin turned his back to the aisle while waiting for Katie to walk to aisle. Once she was in position, Calvin turned around and his reaction was the absolute best!

Haley and Makonnen first met back in 8th grade! Haley had just moved to Wisconsin and the two had a few classes together. Eventually, they exchanged phone numbers and were officially dating before the school year ended. After nine years together, Makonnen decided it was time to pop the question before they graduated college. He took Haley out to dinner and then they walked through a nearby park on the way back to their apartment. The park was decorated with twinkling lights and Makonnen had his friends capture the special moment! Since they’ve been together for so long, these two couldn’t wait to finally get married! When looking for wedding venues, they knew they wanted an outdoor ceremony in the woods. The Gardens of Castle Rock in Northfield, MN has multiple outdoor ceremony sites and one of them just so happens to be in the woods, surrounded by the trees. After touring the venue and meeting the owner, Glenn, the couple appreciated Glenn’s love and passion for the venue and all of his hard work that goes into maintaining the property. They just knew it was the perfect venue for them! With the help of their planner,¬†Rustic Elegance, everything came together perfectly. Since their ceremony site had a woodsy, rustic feel, Haley and Makonnen decided to add some glitz and glam to their tent reception by having¬†We’ve Got It Covered decorate the tent with fabric draping and chandeliers! Studio B did a fabulous job decorating the ceremony and repurposing some of the floral for the reception. It was such an honor to photograph these two junior high sweethearts tie...
