Minnesota Landscape Arboretum | Hazeltine National Golf Course | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Well, Josh doesn’t have to pretend to be Sarah’s boyfriend anymore…because now they’re married!!! These two first met at a bar in Maple Grove and when some guys wouldn’t stop hitting on Sarah, Josh stepped in and pretended to be her boyfriend. This worked in Josh’s favor as they then started to date and he became Sarah’s real boyfriend. Fast forward to Sarah’s college graduation from University of Minnesota Duluth, Josh popped the question! Of course, Sarah said yes! They had a long engagement and even changed venues during the planning process. They decided the perfect spot to have their blush wedding was in the Sensory Garden at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum followed by a reception at Hazeltine National Golf Course. Despite the hot and sticky early September weather, everything was absolutely perfect for their big day! View their Minnehaha Falls and Stone Arch Bridge engagement session here!

Three Sisters’ Weddings | Bemidji Weddings | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

It’s always an honor to get to know my couples’ families while photographing their big days. But for the Williams’ sisters, I also got to photograph all three of their weddings in Bemidji!

It’s always an honor to get to know my couples’ families while photographing their big days. But for the Williams’ sisters, I also got to photograph all three of their weddings in Bemidji! At the same locations! That’s right, all three sisters had their wedding ceremonies in their parents’ backyard along the Mississippi River and then took a pontoon ride over to Hampton Inn & Suites on Lake Bemidji. They also each got ready in their parents’ room at their home, had both of their parents walk them down the aisle, had their guests send them off to the pontoon boat, took portraits on the dock at night, etc… In addition to my services, they also had a few of the same other vendors including Abbi’s Bridal Design, Hair Teasers Studio, and Complete Weddings & Events. They were even all each other’s maids of honor, two of them sharing the role at each wedding! Oldest sister Baret was the first to start this tradition when she and Dane got married in August of 2012. Two years later in 2014, Marin and Dustin had their August wedding. They loved Baret and Dane’s wedding plan so much that they decided to use the same idea but with their own spin that highlighted their love for music. Then in August of 2018, Kari and Mark decided to stick with the tradition. As Kari puts it, “[My sisters] have refined this recipe pretty nicely and are happily married, so it made sense to capitalize on their knowledge.” In fact, the recipe was so well-crafted Kari even booked the reception venue and my photography services before...

Derek and Dani wanted an outdoor wedding and fell in love with the atmosphere at The Round Barn Farm in Red Wing, MN.

Derek and Dani wanted an outdoor wedding and fell in love with the atmosphere at The Round Barn Farm in Red Wing, MN. These two met back in 2010 while they were neighbors in the same duplex at University Wisconsin-Stout. They started chatting and as Dani puts it, “We’ve been navigating life together ever since!” Well, on November 11, 2017, Derek chose to take over the navigating for the day and surprised Dani with a special proposal on the Cantilever Bridge at the Guthrie in Minneapolis. Of course, she said yes and then they celebrated their engagement at Oceanaire. Which leads us to their rustic, barn wedding! For their special day, Derek and Dani chose to wait to see each other until the ceremony. A very special aspect of their wedding was that Dani wore her mother’s vintage dress and then did a first look with her mom! For her wedding flowers, Dani chose to have a bouquet of foliage rather than actual flowers. This classy green and gold wedding was such a blast to be a part of! From yard games to bubbles to s’mores to donuts to a polaroid photo station to a live band to a DJ to a night full of dancing; there was no shortage of fun!   Vendors Venue: The Round Barn Farm Photographer: Jeannine Marie Photography Planner: Heather Rosales Florist: Artemisia Studios Caterer: A’Britin Catering Dessert: Valley Pastries Ceremony DJ and Lighting: Midwest Sound Band: Roadkill Stationery: Liana Harding Hair and Makeup: Katie Brown Studios Bridal Shop: JenMar Creations Bridal Shoes: DSW Bridesmaids Dresses: ShowMeYourMumu Groom and Groomsmen Attire: Savvi Formalwear Barbershop: Crossings...

Elizabeth and David had their outdoor, Lumberjack themed wedding at Camp Thunderbird in Bemidji, MN. Elizabeth’s grandparents started the summer camp and it is Elizabeth’s favorite place in the entire world. Elizabeth and David met on Tinder when they both lived in Missouri. After their first date, they spent many Sundays going to brunch, nights seeing bands like Punch Brothers, and their weekday evenings making dinner together. After getting approval from Elizabeth’s dogs Millie and Gideon, David moved in! Eventually, the couple later found themselves moving together to Washington D.C. Despite their relocations, Elizabeth always enjoys going back to Camp Thunderbird. During one specific camping trip to Camp Thunderbird, Elizabeth and David got stuck at the DCA Airport due to dicy weather. David frantically began asking how to get to Minneapolis that evening, and Elizabeth was able to book a flight from Baltimore. After a long day of traveling, they finally reached Minnesota and arrived to Camp Thunderbird. As the sun was setting, there was a double rainbow in the sky. David chose this moment to pop the question and of course, Elizabeth said yes! When planning their wedding, Elizabeth and David knew Camp Thunderbird was the perfect place to say “I do.” Their Jewish Christian ceremony was officiated by a rabbi and a minister in the middle of the woods under a chuppah that was made from Elizabeth’s grandmother’s tablecloth, as well as pieces from both David and Elizabeth’s childhood “blankeys.” After the ceremony, the couple jumped in a canoe to revisit the spot where David proposed while their guests walked the shoreline to the tent reception.
