Elegant Rochester Wedding by Derek Montgomery

20 Mar

An elegant wedding with classic details makes for one lovely Rochester wedding.  From the beautiful church with large arched windows to the trolley rides to the fabulous Rochester locations as a backdrop for the bride and groom, Derek Montgomery did a superb job capturing the timeless beauty and fun-loving bride and groom.  Not to mention the ever so glamorous bride’s gorgeous dropped waist strapless wedding dress, classic accessories and infectious smile all came together beautifully on their special day.

From the Photographer: Normally when I leave Duluth to shoot a wedding, I won’t know many of the people at the wedding besides the couple. This wedding was different. It’s the third wedding I’ve shot for this family so it was fun to leave town and see so many familiar faces.  And so it was this past weekend in Rochester, Minnesota for Justin and Kara’s wedding.  It was rainy and windy, but when the time came for outdoor pictures, all of that disappeared.  Mother Nature is such a drama queen.  Congrats Kara and Justin and thanks for another great weekend in Rochester!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

23 Nov

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  If you’re not too full from yesterday’s feast, here’s one of our favorite cookie recipes to enjoy.  These chocolate cookies coated in confectioners’ sugar are delicious!

chocolate crinkle cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls. I like to use a number 50 size scoop. Coat each ball in confectioners’ sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
