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

Minnesota Wedding | Mayara and Cory | Irvine Park

It was an absolutely perfect summer day for Cory and Mayara’s wedding.  They had planned a small, intimate wedding at Irvine Park in St. Paul.  I love this park with it’s beautiful fountain and surrounding trees.  It really couldn’t have been a more beautiful setting.  Mayara, along with two of her friends, got ready at the St. Paul Hotel, which is a stunning as well.  And following the ceremony, we went to a private club called “The Spot”, in downtown Minneapolis.  Cory and Mayara have had a whirlwind romance, like something you read about in romance novels.  She’s the beautiful girl from Brazil, and Cory, the handsome man who stole her heart.  Neither of them like to be the center of attention, and probably would have been happy with a courthouse type setting.  But family quickly stepped in to help them plan the perfect romantic and intimate day from start to finish, just for them.  Cory and Mayara, thank you so much for including me in your day.  XOXO
