Winter Wedding // #MaryxRyan

Winter weddings hold a special place in my heart. I was married in the winter. When the Groom (longtime friend) approached me to shoot their winter wedding at the same venue that I got married at, I could not say Yes! fast enough! The day was filled with love, laughter and a whole lot of nerd-erific decor, handmade by the Bride. Including her shoe details!! To see true love is what makes a wedding photographer’s job so easy, the love they have for each other filled the candle lit room. Their guests and families had bellies full of tacos and laughed with and at the newlyweds! I personally had a great time, being able to witness your friend commit his life to his perfect gal is life’s greatest gift! I am so happy they found each other!

The Yotter Nuptials || Minnesota Summer Wedding

In 2008 I meet Tyler and Tisha. We all worked together and became pretty good friends. Tisha and I had a couple Ladies Nights out on the town, a lot of laughs and some great memories.  Tyler and I also had a couple good happy hours and a common 311 interest that sparked conversation. But it wasn’t until he became a manager of mine that I gained the utmost respect for him. His laid back groove was contagious and you couldn’t help feeling relaxed by his presence.

Their wedding day was an exact mix of them, laid back with tons of laughs and filled with memories. The Happy Gnome provided the space, everything from the neutral color scheme, beautiful bar, extensive beer list and delicious meal did not disappoint. Tyler’s mom provided the cheesecake for a little something sweet. Oh man, you haven’t had cheesecake until you get a slice of this! Visit her at The Rustic Cafe.

Saying how honored I feel to have been a part of this wedding is an understatement. Tyler & Tisha reminded me why I love a photograph so much. Marriage is such a commitment, it’s nice to have a frozen memory to remind you where the journey all started.

Bring out the best in each other always.
