Vizcaya Wedding | Kyle and Brandie

As I look back on what was my last wedding of 2015, I can’t help but to smile thinking about Kyle and Brandie. When I first met these two at my mid-town space in The Urban Hive last year, you could see the chemistry between them right away. With some people you can just tell they are a good team and amazing partners to each other.

Kyle is clearly the strong (almost to the point of being stoic), protector of his family. I think he’s always had that role in life and his career in law enforcement really just solidified it. When someone dedicates their life to taking care of others through that kind of sacrifice and service, I’m always humbled and grateful.

But even the strong need support from time to time and that is exactly what Brandie is for Kyle. A beautiful, soft spoken girl with eyes like a doe and a spirit that Kyle recognized and knew he could not live without. Don’t let her petite frame fool you, Brandie is a force to be reckoned with in her own right! A Daddy’s girl at heart, (although the closeness she shares with her mother was something you have to experience as a girl to fully understand) documenting these family connections was touching to say the least. The love surrounding these two was palpable and I just know they will be supported in their marriage for the long haul.

It was a gorgeous fall day with the hint of winter in the air when they said vows at their Vizcaya wedding. The family was elevated and the first chapter of their story as man and wife began. I can’t tell you how grateful I was to both witness and capture their day. Happy anniversary you two, the future holds much and there is nothing you can’t accomplish together!

Arden Hills Wedding | Salvador and Sophia

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since Jon and I documented Sophia and Sal’s absolutely stunning Arden Hills wedding. It seems like it was not that long ago that I met them over coffee under a warm sky and the new colors of spring.

They told me how they met and fell in love and how their beautiful daughter Gabby brought them even closer together. They also told me they found me through their friends Aaron and Martinique, another incredible couple whose wedding Jon and I shot back in 2013! And as they told their story, It didn’t take too long for me see the loving subtleties of their relationship. It was not just the way they interacted with each other; but also, the way they did with with their Little girl!

Their engagement session only solidified for me the sweetness that was the two of them together. It was the little things. A small glance from her, a quick and small gesture from him, but it all added up to what I know will be happily forever after.

But their wedding day story almost played out a little differently. Just a few short weeks from the wedding, Sal injured himself to the point of being unable to walk! When I got the call I was devastated for him and for them both. But luckily, I saw the wedding community I am so blessed to be a part of rally around them and reschedule their wedding to a day where Sal was able to walk down the aisle and even get down a little bit at the reception. Everything works out for a reason and we get what we give. And I hope what you see in these images are these two lovelies getting everything they deserved…now and forever.

Roseville Backyard Wedding | Mike and Maggie

From the moment I met Maggie and Mike at Teresa and Steve’s wedding back in May, I knew they were something extra special. I love when people see Jon and I in action on a wedding day and immediately think…these are the people I want to have capture MY wedding! It’s absolutely one of the best feelings in the world.

And so we set up a time to meet and talk wedding details for their big day. And as soon as the conversation started, I knew exactly how they fit in this circle of amazingly talented theater people. Both Mike and Maggie are so warm, light-hearted, and dedicated to each other in a way that you can only react to with a big smile. And believe me, these two had all the smiles on their wedding day.

There’s something a little extra special (and stressful in some way too) when you are working as a commissioned artist on a wedding day for another artist! But Mike and Maggie are incredibly down to earth and made us feel so at home it was easy. Maggie was such an amazingly beautiful bride and Mike’s swag was on point all day long! They said their nuptials (under the threat of rain) with a wonderfully intimate, yet full of life and excitement, Roseville backyard wedding. Darth Vader served the food and the guests were entertained with an unforgettable first dance. It was a day that reflected the life and love that these two give to each other and their family and friends every day. The day left me feeling like you do after a big warm hug from a dear friend and I’m proud to call these two exactly that.
