Real Wedding + Liz & Ted

The day began with the sound of gunshots, ceramic shattering in midair as consequence of bullets, and women prepping their finest looks in the childhood home of the bride. Liz and Ted’s wedding centered around family and tradition. The first look and photos were all done within their house to capture the values in which they instill within themselves, which carried over throughout the day.

From the bride…

I am a surgical fellow in Chicago, and didn’t have a schedule that allowed for more than a couple of trips home during the planning process. Mom, with the help of my sister, handled almost all of the day-to-day planning and details.

Real Wedding + Britni & Matt

Britni and Matt were unexpectedly brought together at the University of Minnesota when they both applied to be Resident Assistants. After a year and a half of building a great friendship, they admitted to each other it had always been more than that. Soon after the proposal, the couple decided to get married at Britni’s family lake house, because they wanted their venue to be meaningful, which also happens to be where their ‘official’ relationship began.

From the bride…

My favorite part of the day was towards the end, when our bridal party took the pontoon boat out on the lake at sunset. It was totally spontaneous and ended up being a major highlight of the day all around.
