It makes my heart ring with happiness seeing two incredible people independently become even more amazing together. When KT and Ryan started to dream about a winter wedding, no way could they have scripted the mid-winter thaw that we would be gifted. Armed with sassy boots and a brilliant grin from ear to ear, KT got her first peek of Ryan amongst the greenery of the Walker Sculpture Gardens. They have some of the most animated and fun-loving friends that immediately adopted Janelle and I for the day--we laughed hard!
Brainerd couldn't have been a more perfect location for these two. Elizabeth had dreamed up a storybook day among the chain of lakes we affectionately refer to as "Lake Country." A self-proclaimed glam girl, every aspect of the day was exquisite with incredible taste and flare. All of the emotion and anticipation came out in their first meeting down a dirt road away from any other eyes or sounds. As the sun set, the lake flickered in the twilight and all celebrated this wonderful union. Thank you both for a terrific weekend!
Vick Photography is in the running for Photography of the Year for 2010! Last year we were humbled and honored to be voted by you and the readers of Minnesota Bride as the Best Photographer for 2009. Exciting things are in store for us here at The Living Room in 2010 and we're excited to have the best cheerleaders in the world in you.
You pair a freestyle skiing coach with a nationally acclaimed racer, add a gondola and a foot of fresh powder and you have yourself an epic way to ring in the New Year! Emmy and Palmer grew up on the slopes of Colorado so found it a natural fit in choosing Steamboat to celebrate their wedding. We awoke to fresh tracks as the groomsmen hit the hill early; Emmy's father had special access as a ski patrol and made the ideal guide.
I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. At The Living Room Studios, John Hoel is a household name and a dear friend. He is perhaps the most talented videographer I have met and with that particular eye, many of us wondered just who would be incredible enough to catch his keen eye. Along came gorgeous Emma! See, many couples dream up a lavish large day but John and Emma took the opposite route. They chose to get married in their home with 30 of their closest family and friends and then an open house reception to follow.
I have know Angela's family for quite a while. I got to be apart of her sister's lakeside summer wedding a few years ago, so why not do something totally opposite? Winter in St. Paul is beautiful, and we got to maximize Rice Park's intimacy to its fullest. Ryan wrapped her up tight in his arms as we got to photograph the beautiful holiday decor. Since the two are avid dog-lovers, they had two special cakes crafted to be spitting images of their two "kids". The Minnesota History Center buzzed all night long as family and friends streamed in to congratulate them.
