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!

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.

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.

Marsha and Jeremy could not have asked for a more beautiful day for a wedding. They got married at the small Dover United Methodist Church, which made for a great setting for the day. After the wedding a quick limo ride to my favorite Plummer house for some goofing around and a drink or two. Back to Dover we went for the wedding reception at the Fire house! Fire suits and helmets lined the back wall as they celebrated the night away with the garage doors opened wide. It was a great day and we all had a blast. Congrats guys!

"“Just saw the Rochester Magazine feature with Marsha and Jeremy’s photos. This is SO COOL! You did such a fantastic job with them. Hope you get a great review and alot of calls for your services. Proud Mom here.”"

Ok, so the calendar said it was spring right… well, wintery temperatures did not keep this fearless wedding party from adventuring around some of the shadiest alleyways in the quest for great locations. Ben and Katie, wow what a beautiful wedding. I have never seen such an enormous and beautiful church. I think we even had the nuns confused when I asked that we turn off all the lights! By the end of the photos one of them came up to me and said she has never seen anyone take wedding photos that way. I took it as a compliment. After the wedding we headed over to Cedar Creek Country Club. Now since Ben is an avid hunter he had to work it into the wedding somehow… Since blaze orange was immediately vetoed they came up with “A Kiss for a Buck” and no they were not charging for kisses.

Kahler Grand Hotel Wedding | Downtown Rochester MN

Wedding at Kahler Grand Hotel Rochester Minnesota
Mayo Clinic Wedding at Kahler Grand Hotel

The wedding made me realize how small the world really is. Hasitha and Sambit are from Sri Lanka and India. Currently they were living in Calgary and the other in Las Angeles and decided to have their Reception with family in Rochester. When I first meet with these guys before their wedding reception I realized that Hasitha was a friend of mine from college and we have a bunch of classes together! The Kahler Grand Ballroom is a beautiful setting for any wedding or reception.
