Wedding Date: March 14th 2015

These two are exactly why I feel I have the best job in the whole world.  Months ago, Amy and Devon invited me up to their lake place for a stellar night of wine, stars, and even a wet fishing adventure!  (Check them out here.)  The University of St. Thomas was the perfect start to the fun as we made our way through the city of St. Paul back to the riverbanks of Minneapolis and popped our heads in for a preview of Aria.  Wow!  Sarah Trotter from Lasting Impressions was at her very best as she brought Aria to life to enthusiasm of guests' rave reviews.  No one wanted to go home from this party of a life-time-photographer included-as they seem to have hit the jackpot of awesome friends.  I adore you both and can't wait for our next big adventure together!  Count me in.

Wedding Date: February 7th 2015

Allison glows.  In every encounter, I just sensed something unique about this girl.  It comes from a place of inner beauty and joy that can't be contained.  Patrick picked up on this as well as he knew just how good he had it.  This wedding was met with much anticipation from friends that knew early on this would be a forever thing.  As a result, the ceremony became more of a confirmation under God of truths that were made so real to them long ago.  The Semple Mansion felt like their home for the night and we all were allowed in to sneak a peek at a reminder of divine love that knows no boundaries.  The Mansion came alive with laughter, toasts, dancing, only to be topped off with just the right amount of tears.  This new friend and photographer has a heart for the authentic, and Allison and Patrick's crew has it in heaps.

Wedding Date: February 6th 2015

These two bring a big smile to my face every time I think of them.  There are not two more deserving people of love that I have met as of late than the fabulous Lisa and her confident William.  They are a true case that if you surround yourself with good friends and family that love you, good things will grow from it.  Upper Room was a fitting place to begin this day as William waited for his bride under a winter forest canopy outside the church.  Lisa could hardly contain herself!  Her ear to ear grin and sense of adventure is what drew William to her in the first place and neither could wait any longer to begin life's journey together.  McNamara Center at the University of Minnesota was breathtaking from floor to ceiling as this party would go late into the night.  I was honored to be apart of it.

Wedding Date: January 31st 2015

When the first of your three little girls gets that ring, your heart must stop as a dad.  Suddenly your whole world has to transition to sending her off in the arms of a really good man.  Fortunately for FOB Tom, Hayden is not only good; he's the best for Jenn.   Jenn is a beautiful and confident woman whose smile lights up a room and you never have to guess what she's thinking.  She will tell you.  Jenn was all about her groom this day at The Depot Minneapolis.  Janelle Vick of White Confetti wedding planning (go wife!) had every last detail covered and the room was aglow.  Prior to the ceremony, which featured many Westwood Church faces, the crew braved Minnesota winter to find a few snowdrifts still hanging around town. Later into the night, the only thing to out do the sparklers might have been the moving toasts that left everyone's heart warm.  It was a special day well deserved for a special family.  We love you guys!
