Kirbi and Nick: Engagement Session

Engagement Session
Location: Guthrie & Mill City, Minneapolis

A snowy engagement session in downtown Minneapolis... Kirbi and Nick braved the chilly temperatures for some awesome outdoor portraits! I love the industrial vibe of the Mill City ruins and the great textures of the walls surrounding that area. We also went next door, to the Guthrie theater. The blazing red and blue walls created a super modern look, that went perfectly with their outfits. I'm looking forward to this couple's Up North wedding next summer! Another exciting wedding in Lutsen, Minnesota, one of my favorite wedding destinations. Congrats you two!

Elise and Ryan

Date: November 15th, 2015

Dress: David's Bridal
Shoes: Aerosoles
Flowers: Family Friend
Cake: P.J. Murphy's
Ceremony: St. Thomas Becket Catholic Church
Reception: Lost Spur Golf Club

Congratulations Elise and Ryan! I think we all thought this would be a fall wedding, but winter showed up a little early! Luckily, it was absolutely gorgeous. The weather wasn't too cold for outdoor photos and the snow was falling softly. Elise and Ryan were up for anything, so we trekked into the woods for some nice outdoor portraits. A special trip to Cupcake after the ceremony was also very picturesque. If you haven't had a treat from this local bakery, you should stop by. The heart cupcake is called the "I Love Lucy" (personally, I'm all about the salty caramel). I thought this wedding was very pretty, the details were well executed, and the overall vibe was airy and romantic (Elise's dress and veil were so ethereal, they photographed so nicely). A special Thank You to Amanda Gahler, one of my favorite photographers, who second shot this wedding. A few of her photos are in this blog post as well. A great end to the 2014 wedding season!
