The Gardens of Castle Rock Wedding | Saint Paul Wedding Photographer

Rebecca and Ryan had their September wedding at The Gardens of Castle Rock in Northfield, MN. Rebecca had this venue picked out long before Ryan popped the question! Back when they were dating, they planned a trip to Colorado to visit a friend of Rebecca’s. While planning the trip, they decided to check out activities in the Castle Rock, CO area. Well, when Rebecca searched for Castle Rock, the beautiful outdoor garden wedding venue popped up. She couldn’t help but to click on it and instantly fell in love with the venue! Rebecca didn’t mention the discovery though until after Ryan proposed! Since the couple wanted a rustic wedding theme with minimal decor, they decided the floral and landscaping of The Gardens of Castle Rock was the perfect fit. Plus, the venue was halfway between their two families. One of my favorite details was that the couple included a tablecloth and goblets on the head table that has been a part of Ryan’s family since the 1800’s! This was the 15th family wedding that the items have been used in! How neat is that!? But let’s back up a bit! Rebecca and Ryan met while attending school at the University of Iowa. They met one evening in downtown Iowa City and the rest is history! When they started talking about engagement and weddings, Rebecca made it clear she wanted a surprise engagement. Ryan accepted the challenge! He had planned a fancy dinner at a local winery to celebrate Rebecca completing her Master’s degree. Before they went to dinner, Ryan handed Rebecca a deck of cards. He had gotten them...

Redeemed Farm is a historic century-old farmstead in Scandia, MN. This new Minnesota farm wedding venue was listed as one of the Venue Report’s most stunning barns across the USA in 2017. I collaborated with some of my favorite vendors for a styled shoot that was inspired by the farm’s rustic charm and beautiful fields. Couples will be inspired by these up and coming trends with this royal purple, soft lavender, deep burgundy, and blush color scheme. Our bride and groom models are a real couple that got married three weeks after this styled shoot! Their authentic smiles and interactions showcase the fun of a farm wedding. The Redeemed Farm’s bridal suite is a Scandinavian cottage with white exposed wood and an upper loft area with skylights. To beat the summer heat on the farm, our bride is wearing a flowy A-line Leanne Marshall gown with a high slit and our groom is wearing a light gray suit. For couples that love animals, why not let the farm residents in on the fun? Our bride and groom were brave enough to be photographed with the farm owners, Julie and Jeff’s giant 17 hand black beauty horse. Couples tying the knot on a farm will also be inspired by these popular farm ceremony options: outside or under the barn loft, which isn’t a bad option for a plan B in case of bad weather. Our outdoor ceremony site is decorated with rustic crates, candles, and flowers. The wood arch is adorned with draping and hanging glass ball vases enclosed with fresh blooms and greenery. Our indoor ceremony site includes cascading...
