Grand View Lodge Summer Wedding | Lakeside Wedding Ceremony | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Jul 16, 2018 | Minnesota Wedding Photography, Minnesota Wedding Venues, Summer Wedding

Jordan and Mitch had a beautiful outdoor, lakeside wedding ceremony at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, MN. This beautiful resort in Northern Minnesota offers couples a wide range of lodging options, amazing scenic backdrops for ceremonies, private reception space for up to 400 guests, dining and catering services, and a variety of activities onsite including golf, spa, dining, a pool, and beach time! This place is such the perfect little getaway! For their summer wedding, Jordan and Mitch chose a romantic color palette of burgundy and champagne that perfectly complemented the natural beauty of the venue. From photos on the beach to photos surrounded by tall trees with delicious lighting, I had so much fun spending the day up North with this lovely couple!   Vendors Venue and Caterer: Grand View Lodge Photographer: Jeannine Marie Photography Videographer: Reel Love Films Florist: Bloom Designs Dessert: Marketplace Foods Decor: Dee’s Decorating Chair Covers: Panache Event Planning DJ: Jami Ottmar Stationery: JMark Photography Hair and Makeup: Meraki Hair Studio Bridal Shop: m.

Kari and Craig had their outdoor wedding at Hope Glen Farm in Cottage Grove, MN. This couple met through their church, and they got engaged while watching the sunrise during a camping trip along the North Shore. Kari has two children who were a part of the wedding party and it was so special that during their ceremony, Craig wrote special vows to the kids. Throughout the day, the couple wanted their wedding to be kid-friendly and full of fun for both the adults and the kids. Since Hope Glen Farm has a lot of space, the kids were able to run around and play yard games, create chalk art, and make giant bubbles with bubble wands after the ceremony. For the wedding reception in the open pavilion, I loved that the couple decided to switch up the usual reception layout and do something different. It’s very common for Hope Glen Farm couples to put their head table in front of the pavilion’s gorgeous fireplace. Instead, Kari and Craig decided to place their head table in the middle of the pavilion and have the guest tables surround them. The Cutting Garden then decorated the tables with her beautiful, vibrant summer floral arrangements and garlands! After a delicious dinner from Apples 2 Apples Catering and dessert from Nadia Cakes, everyone moved into the barn to dance along with a live band, Big Pappa! I had so much fun being apart of Kari and Craig’s big day! Also, shout-out to Brittany with Bella Mystique Weddings & Design for coordinating the couple’s day!   Vendors Venue: Hope Glen Farm Photographer: Jeannine Marie Photography...

Erin and Jake live out-of-state so they relied on Erin’s family to help them find the perfect wedding venue. Since Erin and Jake both love old houses, the St. Paul College Club was an easy fit. It also happens to be down the street from where Erin lived during college, and she always found the neighborhood to be adorable. The venue has a beautiful outdoor ceremony site that the couple loved because it’s in the garden and surrounded by greenery. It wasn’t hard to see that this was the perfect place for this couple to have their navy and green wedding. One very special part of their day was a traditional heirloom. Jake’s mom gave Erin a very special coin that has been passed down in her family. The coin completes the lesser known verse of the traditional saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe!” For some reason, the sixpence in your shoe often gets left off the rhyme and many brides have forgotten this part. But Jake’s mom’s family made the sixpence a tradition. So, honoring the tradition, Erin taped the coin in her shoe! The second part of this family tradition is to also have the bride paint her name and wedding date on the wooden box where the coin is kept. We love this unique tradition! Other special aspects of their day included a poem written by Erin’s friend and read during the ceremony. One of Jake’s friends performed a song at the ceremony. For their cocktail hour, their two signature drinks were named after their beloved pets who couldn’t join them...

Anna and Al had their summer wedding at Church of St. Anne in Hamel, MN and the Lafayette Club in Minnetonka Beach, MN. This couple’s parents knew each other long before Anna and Al met, but eventually the two crossed paths at a mutual friend’s wedding and hit it off. Anna’s dad’s wedding toast during the reception confirmed that both families were very excited for the couple to tie the knot! Al is a graduate from West Point United States Military Academy and during his ring ceremony while most of the guys were nervous about graduation, he was nervous about proposing to Anna right after the ceremony. He planned everything out though and popped the question while they were taking photos together and with family after the ceremony. Of course, she said yes! After only being engaged for a few days, Anna immediately set up a consultation with me! So we scheduled a date for their engagement session in Elk River, MN while Al was in town during leave. Check out the photos from the engagement session here!
