Last weekend was a beautiful weekend for Carly and Jack’s wedding! This wedding was extra special to me, as Carly interned and worked for me for several summers while she was in college. It meant SO much to me that she wanted me to photograph her wedding, and I just knew she was going to be a stunning, gorgeous bride!

The weather worked in our favor, raining all morning, but clearing up just in time for photos at the beach. Because it was still threatening rain, there was no one at the beach, we pretty much had it all to ourselves. The sky was overcast and the light was spectacular and I couldn’t be more thrilled with their images!

Their wedding and reception were both held at the Bayview Event Center in Excelsior with a beautiful view of Lake Minnetonka.  They were surrounded by fantastic family and friends, all of whom made me feel very welcome and part of the party!  Carly’s gorgeous bohemian dress is from David’s Bridal, and was absolutely the most perfect dress for her! Most of their decorations and flowers were DIY and I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly beautiful and well done they were!!

Enjoy your sneak peek!!
