matt and anne : gorgeous lutsen, mn wedding

Matt and Anne are simple and extremely into the outdoors, so naturally Lutsen struck their fancy immediately when they started wedding planning! And to be honest, the setting couldn’t have been more perfect for them. They tied their passion of the outdoors and ¬†nature with their love for being “up north” and brought it to family and friends which was a perfect way to celebrate! :) Their romantic wedding colors and fabulous details put a smile on guest’s faces as they watched the ceremony in AWE with the gorgeous Lake Superior as their backdrop! Honestly, it couldn’t have gotten any better (especially since I looooooove being up north so much; it was like taking a mini-vacay while “working”! ¬†:)

Don’t you just LOOOOOVE that seagull that is strategically flying right near them as they are on the rocks? If you know anything about the North Shore you know that there are a gagillion of seagulls flying around waiting to POOP on you at any time….it makes for tricky photos with a gorgeous bride in a wedding dress! :)

And of course we HAD to go up to Grand Marais to take some photos on Artist Point! :) Honestly, it is SOOOO gorgeous every direction you turn up there! :)

The coolest part about a wedding at Lutsen (or ONE of the umteen cool parts) is that everyone has to ride a 10 minute gondola trip up the Mountain to the Chalet/ceremony spot. No matter how afraid of heights you are this ride is amazing with unbelievable views of the area and water off in the distance! :)

The ceremony was simple and perfect! :)

Off on the mountain for a few more portraits and then back to the guests to eat, drink and be merry for the remainder of the night! :)

Josh and Maren

Quite possibly the cutest couple on the face of the earth, Maren and Josh threw an event that was PERFECTION a few weeks ago. Both reception and ceremony held at the fabulous Orchard in Baldwin, WI it gave a perfect backdrop to their newly wedded selves! :) With details that are to die for (you’ll see in a minute) and smiling faces all around them from friends and family, it couldn’t have been any better!!! :)

Now I owe some SERIOUS PROPS, thank you’s and high fives to both Josh and Maren and the wedding party for allowing me to drag them out into the drizzle all afternoon for photos! :) No complaining, no grumpy faces and certainly only complying remarks to make my job the easiest in the world. The rain didn’t stop their party and I 100% LOVE LOVE LOVE when couples trust me enough to go along with my wild requests! :) Thank you friends! :)

OK….OK…..OK….I know that I went overboard with the ring shots here, but I JUST HAD TO use the buttons because buttons are my favorite and I couldn’t help myself but keep shooting. Her ring is STUNNING isn’t it?!?!?! :) By the way, these are probably my most FAVORITE ring shots EVER! :) :) :)

AND AND AND her details at the reception were to die for. Her maid-of-honor, Erin, (hi Erin!) was a huge part on making all of the details come together and in my opinion we all need to write Erin letters of awesomeness and tell her that she needs to go into business with this! K? K! :)

How fabulous is her button/cork seating chart board?!?!?! :)

They danced the night away and it was PERFECTION! :)

Katy and Josh

Beautiful. Classy. Simple. Northwoodish. A perfect Wisconsin wedding that Josh and Katy couldn’t have planned more amazingly! They are 2 of the most real people you will ever meet that both love to spend as much time in the fresh air as possible. So it was only fitting that they tied the knot at the fabulous Tagalong Lodge in Birchwood, WI…with the serene lake as their backdrop and birch trees towering over the lodge they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect event! :)

In case you were wondering…this is the “HOLY MOLY YAY YAY YAY! WE ARE MARRIED!!!” face! :)
