Julie & Spencer – sneak peek

10 Aug

My second destination wedding – and I can call this a destination wedding, right?  Lutsen may only be two hours away, and the landscape is pretty much the same as home, but the resort is just so beautiful it feels like you’re away somewhere special.

There is lots to say about this awesome couple and their incredible wedding.

Like, 1. they are really fun and nice, and put on an awesome party.
2. They each have a large group of friends that adore them.
3. They are really loving parents! Julie kept saying: gee this would’ve been a lot easier if we did the wedding BEFORE kids! But half the bridesmaids had infants there anyway so it was a total baby party with a fun vibe.

The wedding itself was so cool – Lutsen Resort has an amazing layout for a beautiful outdoor wedding.  Grassy area for the ceremony, covered deck for cocktail hour, view of the expansive lake.

Highlights of the day include:

So many tiny babies
The “first look”
Curly blonde toddler stealing the show (multiple times)
The most insane storm and downpour
Double rainbow
Ending the night with a bonfire, first time s’mores

Couldn’t capture just how hard the rain was, but it was intense

Suzie & Bill

1 Aug

This couple is so surrounded by love.  Such a lovely ceremony and reception yesterday that included many personal touches.  The most unique part of the day was a paddle in the canoe (Suzie and her family worked at The Fort growing up).

Congratulations to the both of you!

Here’s the Fata gang! This was one of those scenarios where the kids’ energy ruled the session and was a sweet reminder to us adults that sometimes shining personalities make a good photo when it’s too hard to stand still!

Cheers to 6 years ❤
