Kellie and Ryan’s day was beautiful.. and an adventure! While shooting indoors isn’t a problem, let’s be honest – I really want to be able to give couples their beautiful green outdoor photos if possible. I’ve photographed many weddings on rainy days, but this one was particularly challenging because the weather kept going back and fourth between clear enough, and full on stormy! We would be outside thinking the rain had passed, and then in a few minutes we would be running inside. Thankfully we were able to capture the images we wanted, and Kelli and Ryan were champions dealing with the sometimes icky weather. In the end, everyone rolled with it, had a great time, and made some great memories. I also loved this day because it is another wedding brought to you by my friend Rita with Premier Planning Services! :) The ceremony at Wayzata Community Church and reception at Interlachen Country Club in Edina. Enjoy the pics!
Kellie is sooooo beautiful.
Lookin’ good, guys!
My 2nd photographer was with the guys. I have no idea what they are all laughing at, but I love these pics!
A first look, staying out of the rain. Kellie and Ryan were just a little excited to see each other!
It was still sprinkling a little, but Kellie and Ryan were champions and powered through it. Not that we couldn’t have packed it up and gone indoors, but look at this setting – we all wanted to grab some outdoor pics because we had such a gorgeous spot for it!
… the gorgeous group of ladies!
I love this pic. It just reads classic.
We had a large bridal party and were dodging between a light sprinkle and an all out rain storm – so we all had to rally together to get the shot. A big shout out to this group for being so corporative so we could make these pics happen!
Off to Wayzata community church to get married! :)
Recessional pics are some of my favorites… I love seeing not only the bride and groom’s smiling faces, but the parents, too!
Lots of classic, elegant, and pretty details coming your way! :)
I realize there are lots and lots of cake cutting pics here… but I just had to many favorite moments and reactions I shared them all. :)
… and I was SO thankful we captured these images! You’d never know by looking at the pics below that it was a very stormy day out prior to the sunset. I’m so glad the clouds parted and we had a little time to sneak away and take these pics, they are some of my favorites!
The reception had great toasts – and was filled with tons of love and laughter!
I think these two photos of Kellie and her dad are just the sweetest!
Once again, thank you to a great team of vendors who pulled together and made this happen!
