amanda and greg {wedding day}

Redwood Falls, Minnesota October 20, 2007

Connie and I drove all the way to Redwood Falls for this wonderful wedding. Everything about this wedding was simply rocktastic! Beautiful couple, gorgeous weather, breathtaking fall colors… and the fact that Amanda organized everything down to the details made our jobs much easier!

We started with hair and make up.

Amanda’s dress was one of the most beautiful dress I’ve ever seen.

And then it’s down to the park for some portraits. Amanda gave us enough time to roam around and got some awesome awesome shots for them. Bravo for that!

After the ceremony, we hopped on a bus and head out to the bar for some celebration time!

The reception was a cool one. Here, Amanda and Greg’s sweet first dance.

The DJ’s tunes were awesome, check out these dancers bringing down the house!

Not sure what’s going on here. LOL

Greg danced with his mom. It was emotional and touching.

Bouquet toss!! This has got to be one of my top favorite image!

Greg worked hard to get the garter out. Always love this part of the reception.

Last but not least, the rings shot!!!

Thank you, Amanda and Greg, for such a wonderful time, and a big thanks to Connie for letting me join you for this awesome wedding!

eric and angela {wedding day}

On board Paradise Charter Cruise, Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota October 13, 2007

Once you met Eric and Angela, you can’t help but fall in love with them. They are kind, sweet, awesome and so in love. I am really thankful to be a part of their beautiful wedding.

It was a gorgeous day, with crisp breeze coming across the lake. Eric and Angela both wore matching Converse pink sneakers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE their shoes. : )

In the middle of the portrait session I said “give her a kiss”, and both Angela and Peggy the maid of honor leaned in for a kiss. That got them laughing. : )

Always love a happy and glowing bride!

The ceremony was held on a boat on Lake Minnetonka. It was small but intimate and touching with only their closest families and friends.

Eric and Angela are both vegan. The vegan cheesecake was a big hit.

Double dose ring shots and sunset on the lake!!

The power went out unexpectedly for about 5 minutes, which caught the bride and groom by surprise.

Everyone had a blast on the dance floor.

Thank you so much, Eric and Angela, for letting me be a part of your wedding. Congratulations again and my best wishes to both of you!

Emily is super talented. She is a dancer, a model, an actress, and a math and art double major. All her talents just made this shoot so amazing. Her beauty is so unconventional, but yet so striking.

I love how she mixed and matched all the pieces together. The creativity and splash of colors was simply awesome!

When she went into the freezing cold lake I was getting worried that her body might not be able to handle it. But Emily is a trooper, she aced the shoot with grace!

With her theater acting background she is also a great make-up artist. She did her own hair and make-up for the shoot.

Thank you, Emily, for being so awesome, and all the best in your future undertakings!
