As I walked up to the big house at Pine Peaks Event Center in Crosslake, MN, in my mind I was reviewing the image ideas that Katie had shared with me starting with some ideas she had on how to photograph her dress hanging with some of her bridesmaids dresses, but when I entered the door Katie stood there fully dressed! She, and her bridesmaids, were just too excited to wait! This excitement and lightheartedness filled the day. And a beautiful day it was being over 50 degrees and sunny on the first weekend in March!
Katie and many of her bridesmaid hail from Roseau, so cold weather is of no consequence to them. 50 degrees almost calls for sunscreen!
I met Katie and Sean at their engagement session this past summer and two traits of their relationship that struck me were Katie's esteem for Sean and Sean's admiration of Katie. Watching them interact, Katie's gaze on Sean was on a man of intelligence and capability and Sean's gaze on Katie was as if she floated and glowed. You can see it here in their engagement session too, but these looks really showed on their wedding day. Look through their images and you'll see what I mean.
Their wedding party was pretty awesome too.
