Central MN Bride Wedding Editorial - Grey Eagle, MN

Once in a while you run into a creative spirit that is different but complimentary of your own and when you work with them your work goes one or two steps further than either of you could go on your own.  About 3 years ago, Kathie at Central MN Brides magazine asked me to shoot an editorial with her that you can view here.  Since then we have worked together many times and every time the synergy of her vision, style and planning bring my work further than I could bring it on my own.  Just about a month ago we worked together again at Olive Branch Retreat Center on a Kinfolk Themed wedding editorial.  A terrific videographer name Eric Olsen of Olsen-Media was there to capture the whole process and he put together this video.  Enjoy.

A Classic Black Tux.... always works brilliantly.

Wedding at Greysolon Ballroom Duluth, MN

The classic black tux always works, is always in style and raises the bar of sophistication right to the top.  Brock is sporting a classic black tuxedo by Hugo Boss that complimented his and Laura's wedding to a T. It is also an opportunity to make a solid investment into your wardrobe as there will undoubtedly come many opportunities and events where this ensemble will prove its value.

Jake + Shelby | Pelican Lake Wedding and Breezy Point Resort Celebration

Jake and Shelby's wedding was fun and beautiful! Starting at Breezy Point Resort with the Shelby and the ladies getting ready, then the ceremony and champagne toast at a family cabin across Pelican Lake, then back to Breezy Point Resort for the celebration, it was a day filled with smiles, tears, hugs and lots of love. 
Breezy Point did an amazing job with the White Birch Room and Kate from Bloom Designs along with Gwen from The Hearth Room rocked the decor.  Tim Mahoney sounded amazing playing for the ceremony and cocktail hour.

It was a spectacular day with everything from notes sealed with a kiss to the breezy blowing off of Pelican Lake to an image of over 60 wrestlers that either wrestled in the state meet or wrestled in college. It was an awesome day.

Jake + Katie | Breezy Point Resort Summer Wedding

The wedding planners and staff at Breezy Point Resort are expert's at hosting weddings. Experts!  To top the excellent service and atmosphere of Breezy Point Resort, Jake and Katie's wedding day was the very first day that really felt like summer in 2013.

Also, I can't forget to mention the lovely flowers and decor from Donna at Celebrations Floral Design.


Brian + Meghan | Cragun's Resort Engagement Session in Brainerd, MN

Meghan and Brian are getting married at Cragun's Resort next spring so what better location for their engagement session? If, by the way, you're looking into hosting your Minnesota destination wedding in the Brainerd Area be sure to contact Diane at Cragun's for a tour.  Brian, Meghan and I met at the resort at the very beginning of fall in the Brainerd Lakes Area just as the leaves were beginning to change. It was a terrific engagement session getting to know these two great people and I can't wait for their wedding in April 2013!
