Barthel Barn Wedding

22 Aug

This love story begins with the couple meeting by chance.  After their first brief encounter, as luck would have it, they happened to meet by chance once again.  This time they became friends and grew inseparable.   Fast forward, and these two love birds celebrate their nuptials with a casual barn wedding.  The couple’s country wedding is a great combination of rustic and laid back.

From the Photographer: Jordan and Abbey met one blistery winter day during finals week in their college library. Jordan was not attending school at the time, and simply went to the library to use the internet. Abbey, after deciding to study in the library instead of her apartment, dressed in her cutest sweater and boots and headed out the door for the library. When trudging into the library, Abbey could not help but notice a very attractive young man in a bright orange ski jacket. Abbey sat down right down next to this mystery man, even though she had no work to do on the computer. After fumbling around and pretending to do work, Jordan finally struck up a conversation with Abbey. Jordan had to leave, but it was left that they hoped to see each other again. Abbey turned to the student sitting on the opposite side of her and asked if Jordan was seeing anyone. With a puzzled look and an answer of “no,” Abbey smiled and left the library. Weeks later, Abbey was trying to find a church that suited her, and decided to go with a friend to a new church. Guess who she saw a few seats down? None other than the handsome man she saw a few weeks ago in the library!

Jordan and Abbey became inseparable as they got to know each other. Jordan asked for Abbey’s father’s blessing to date his daughter, and as the years passed, Jordan also asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Jordan got down on one knee on the edge of Lake Superior at sunrise and told Abbey he could not imagine his life without her. Abbey, before saying yes countless times, also could not imagine her life without the sweet and tender man she saw kneeling before her.

Berwood Hill Inn Wedding by Guytano Magno

6 Jun

When this adorable and charismatic bride and creative and dapper groom come together, you get one beautiful wedding infused with elegance, artistic touches and fun pops of bright color.  I’m loving the style of Guytano Magno’s photography.  The first time I saw Berwood Hill in person I was enamoured by its beauty.  With the lush green rolling hills, charming Victorian estate and gardens and dreamy rustic reception space called Lu Lu Belle’s Roost, this is one of southeastern Minnesota’s most magical wedding venues.  Did I mention the groom is a graphic designer and illustrator and created the comic strip style art and escort cards for their reception?  This is one fun and delightful pair!

From the Bride: Brandon and I were really keen on creating a meaningful, casual celebration that felt like we could have thrown it in a backyard. Of course, we chose the most beautiful backyard in Minnesota as our location! The grounds at Berwood are nothing short of magical, and our guests loved exploring the gardens before and after the ceremony. I think one of the most exceptional moments, (in a day full of beautiful moments!), was watching the valley flood with pink light as the sun set behind the barn, arm in arm and knowing this will only be the start of the many beautiful vistas we will get to see in our life together.

Rustic Farm Wedding from Studio Laguna Photography

4 May

I love it when the couple’s personality shines through!  The beautiful country location, charming old barn and rustic decor all make for one lovely country wedding.  From their cool motorcycle to the yummy chocolate chip cookies with milk, this understated wedding is full of personality.

From the Photographer: Nick and Maren had a beautiful wedding on a rural farm near the Wisconsin/Minnesota border. Maren’s parents created most of the decor, including the iron chandeliers hanging throughout the barn and all of the floral pieces. Rustic and charming and vintage with a low key vibe were definitely the descriptors of the day. Fresh fried chicken and all the country fixin’s satisfied the guests and milk and homemade cookies were for dessert. The dance was crazy, we though the floor was going to cave in! This couple and their friends sure knew how to party.
