A Wedding on Ice Hockey and Hunting | Bob + Amanda

Lakeville MN wedding on Hockey skates

Bracketts Crossing Country Club Wedding Lakeville MN

Classy Hunting themed wedding details

Bob was able to do something that every man dreams about…. finding a woman who loves hunting and fishing as much as him!  So it was an easy call to pop the question. Amanda and Bob got married a few weeks earlier in Florida and came back home to have their reception at the Bracketts Golf and Country Club in  Lakeville Minnesota.  They elegantly tied the hunting theme into their wedding with log centerpieces and mason jars with bird shot and shot gun shells. Congrats guys!

New Years Eve Peace Plaza Wedding | Aaron + Amanda

Rochester Peace Plaza Marriot Wedding

Wedding Makeup Artist Rochester

Rochester Peace Plaza Wedding New Years Eve

I knew I had a good night ahead of me when not 10 minutes into out photo shoot the groom does a trust fall into the laughing arms of his buddies.  These guys did not disappoint!   Grooms men in Daisy Duke’s, a guy in a green spandex full body suit in a full on dance off with the groom…. it was one heck of a night.   I’ve been at a lot of weddings and I can say these guys set more than a few firsts for me.  Besides bringing in the new year like none other, Amanda and Aaron didn’t have a typical December day in Minnesota.  Not a speck of snow on the ground and almost 50 degree temperatures (that might explain the Daisy Dukes) and I don’t think anyone minded given the wedding took place outdoors at Peace Plaza.

Cubs Twins Fans Put Aside Differences to Wed | Stacy + Josh

Rochester Minnesotas Best Wedding PhotographersRochester Minnesota Top Rated Photographers
These two have done what many could never do… Marry a Cubs fan… or Twins fan depending on how you look at it. I think the most telling moment was when I asked what type of checks they would get when they join checking account… Twins… or Cubs. I’ll let these two slug that one out. Maybe the outcome of the big Cubs vs Twins game thats right before their wedding can decide that one. I’m looking forward to seeing you guys at your wedding and I had a fantastic time during our engagement shoot. And what do you know we didn’t even get the 8 inches of snow the weather guy was promising us.

Fall Family Photos Rochester, Minnesota | The Schmitt Family

 

What a perfect day for fall photos. We just managed to beat the sun set for this beautiful set of photos. I might add that these guys did an excellent job picking out clothing for their photo session. Similar tones, layers, different textures. All this add up to a great family photo without all that matchy matchey solid color business.

Wedding Reception at Rochester Double Tree Hotel

Lynnette & Brett had probably one of the coolest wedding receptions I have ever seen! The theme… “A Night at the Movies” featuring a Love Story Starring none other than Brett and Lynnette. The gig premier was at the Double Tree Hotel in down town Rochester, a fitting place with a grand entry. We had a fantastic day for photos and Brett and Lynnette had some friends with a beautifully landscaped park like yard. We had a blast, the guests danced all night long, and the guests took tons of wild photos in our photo booth.
