Jennifer and Brian

I'm blogging out of order today. I was going through Jen and Brian's photos from this past weekend and started working on a few and then I just got a little carried away and had to post them.

I can't even begin to tell you what an amazing experience I had with these two. I left the wedding in tears and had a wonderful drive home reflecting on everything. Life, love, and just how lucky we are to experience the things we do. You could say that this was a life changing event that's how well things went!

The location was perfect. Jen and Brian chose the Round Barn Farm in Red Wing, MN. The weather was seriously a gift from God. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Jen is just amazing... love ya Jen! :) Everything was just perfect! I honestly can't say anymore than that. I also had an amazing assistant make a special trip down to help me. Thanks Darcie!

Jen's fabulous red shoes:

Jen's bouquet featured a locket with a picture of her late grandmother:

The awesome round barn:

The reception took place upstairs in the barn:

I caught this cute mother/daughter moment through the window right before the ceremony:

Jen wanted some out of the ordinary wedding photos so I brought along my new chair and we headed down to the tracks. We snuck them out right after toasts to capture this incredible light! Future brides- if I want to sneak you out... trust me! It's SOOOO worth it!

We were literally racing against time as the light was going away for the night- this was a sweet shot. The property had some incredible locations.

One of my favorites of the night!
A big shout out to Jeff James- you are amazing! Brides- if you haven't booked music for your reception yet, he is it! He is a one man band and uses a looping technique to add layers of instruments to his live performance. His song list is around 400 and he doesn't even look at a sheet of music or lyrics. INCREDIBLE!
Thanks J&B for allowing me to capture your day. Call me when you have babies! :)

Wow Olivia... you have a great eye. Those photos on the tracks are amazing. And the shot with their shadow on the barn is out of this world. Thank you so much for sharing the food pics. They are some of the best we've had done. I've recommended you to some other brides. I look forward to working together again soon!
