Brady & Bri
When Bri initially reached out to me about photographing her and Brady’s wedding on Lake Minnetonka, I was SO excited! But lets be honest, who wouldn’t be?! An amazing couple getting married on an island on Lake Minnetonka – it’s a photographers dream! It certainly turned out just as magical as it sounds, and is one of the weddings I will always be incredibly thankful to have photographed during my time in Minnesota. This has taken me several weeks to blog because I simply couldn’t pick 50 favorites to sum up the day. I tried for a week straight to narrow down images, and finally convinced myself to just let it rip! This is by far the longest blog ever, but once you finish it you will see why. This wedding was hands down a STUNNER.
Everything about this wedding came together seamlessly, which happens rarely at a wedding…especially one that’s on an island! I’m still impressed several months down the road at how beautifully this wedding happened! We had abundant sunshine, and the couples family and friends helped make everything go so smoothly the day of. The couple was married by Brady’s father underneath two beautiful trees on the island, and we were lucky enough to tag along with the couple and their wedding party on an after ceremony celebratory boat ride to downtown Excelsior. The couple and their friends enjoyed some local brews, and popped a bottle of champagne off the back of the boat on the way back. It. Was. Awesome.
The rest of the evening was spent enjoying the most amazing sunset over Lake Minnetonka, and partying away to some of the best tunes. Even I was dancing to a few, and people are rarely blessed to see my sweet dance moves 😉 HA!
Photographing weddings allows you to meet so many different types of people, and it is refreshing when you get to spend the day with genuinely kind people. Both Brady & Bri’s families were welcoming, funny, and just all around happy to be witnessing these two getting married. We couldn’t be happier to have spent the day capturing a part of Brady & Bri’s love story, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two love birds.
The couple gave out custom fishing lures as a wedding favor, and we caught a HUGE fish with it last week! I was so darn excited I almost text Bri, but I figured I’d wait to share that little story until I published this!! Thanks Brady & Bri!
Thanks to all these amazing vendors! You were all so great to work with!
