Minnesota Wedding | Cody and Jenna | Winehaven Winery

On the morning of Cody and Jenna’s wedding, the forecast was for rain showers starting in the afternoon.  Jenna had fallen in love with Winehaven Winery when she first toured it and had dreamed of having a beautiful outdoor wedding in the midst of the vineyard, overlooking the pond.  It seemed like that wasn’t going to be possible.  We moved pictures up a little to be able to fit those in outside before the rain.  And then our prayers were answered and the rain went around us!  It was absolutely perfect with the Fall colors just starting to show. The white chairs in the middle of the rows of vines and the beautiful floral covered arbor made for a breathtaking setting. Winehaven is seriously a stunning venue!

Everything could not have gone smoother.  From the adorable bubble blowing ring bearer to the personalized vows and the amazing family and friends who came to celebrate with Cody and Jenna, I feel pretty safe in saying it was their dream come true.  Five years earlier they had first met, and now five years later they said “I do” to starting their life together.  Cody and Jenna, may life be full of many more days just as magical as this one.  XOXO

Liz and Colin | Silverwood Park | Minneapolis Wedding

Where do I even begin with this couple?! Liz and Colin are two of the sweetest and most fun people I have ever met.  They were guests at Jamie and Chris’s wedding, that I shot last year, and became engaged soon after.  They told me when we first met, they had watched me that day and decided then, that they would want me as their photographer when they eventually got married.  So sweet, and a little creepy to know I was being watched! 😉 We laughed so much at their engagement session, I felt like we’d been friends forever.

Liz and Colin first met at a Gopher hockey game 4 years ago and started dating after that.  Colin said it was just a few months after that, when they were having dinner at a restaurant, he looked across the table and just knew, she was the one he was going to marry.  And Liz had a similar moment when Colin came back into town after being in Virginia.  She said she can remember thinking “I never want to be apart from him ever again!”

Liz was absolutely giddy as she got ready on her wedding day, and Colin had a permanent smile as he waited to see her for the first time.  It was a brisk and windy day, but it was beautiful and perfect in every way that mattered.  And Silverwood Park in the Fall was absolutely breathtaking!  Two beautiful families and lots of friends came together to celebrate.  I hope Liz and Colin always feel the love and happiness they were surrounded by that day.

There were so many amazing vendors that helped make the day so gorgeous.  Jane from See Jane Plan, was the best wedding planner I have worked with! The flowers from Wisteria Design were absolutely breathtaking! D’Amico and Sons catered the reception and the food was incredible.  Especially the desserts…I may have had 3 of the mini donut sandwiches (YUM!!!! Shhh, don’t tell!)  And lots of other vendors listed below.

Liz and Colin, I would relive your wedding day again in a heartbeat!  Actually, anything to spend another day with the two of you!  I love the way you love on each other and I hope you have a lifetime of making each other laugh every single day.  XOXO.
