My husband and I were married on a beautiful fall day in 2009. It was chilly, but the leaves were beautiful. I had H1N1 with a fever of 103.8 when I walked down the aisle. We didn’t realize of course just how sick I was then, but suffice it to say, I did not feel […]

“Golden Hour” is a term you’ve probably heard before if you’re planning your wedding and have already booked and met with your photographer or videographer. If you aren’t at that point in the planning process yet, here’s the scoop: Golden Hour is a term used by photographers/videographers/planners to describe the hour prior to the sun […]

Sometimes you go to work, spill coffee on your shirt, read your book instead of eating your lunch, and basically count down the seconds until you can blow that popsicle stand…and other times…you see the love of your life from across the room and fall head over heels. Or at least that’s sort of how […]

My favorite part about my job is seeing bridesmaids from weddings I’ve done in the past, become the bride themselves! And that was exactly the case when I was present to handle Taylor’s wedding to her love Cameron this past summer at the beautiful Scenic Escape Barn in Henderson, MN. The day was a warm […]

  In July, I was present at Caitlin and Tyler’s wedding to coordinate the moments of their very special day. They held their ceremony and reception and the stunning Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery and were one of the first couples to celebrate in the brand new event center on the Chankaska grounds. Beyond this […]

On a warm (very warm) day in late June, Erin and Andy said I DO to a life of endless adventures together. After getting engaged in Santorini, Greece (are you swooning yet…I’m totally swooning) Erin and Andy embarked on a new journey…planning their wedding! Their travel themed wedding was absolutely stunning and I was so […]

I will never forget the first meeting I had at Tandem Bagels in Mankato with Emily and her mother! After chatting for quite a while about what services we offered and all things wedding, we moved on to other random topics and I mentioned something about not being from the Mankato area, and the bride […]

A lot of times, life isn’t at all like the fairytales we used to read as children. Bluebirds and mice don’t show up to do the dishes and the laundry, and I don’t know about you, but my fairy godmother certainly hasn’t graced me with her presence quite yet. However sometimes, after kissing a lot […]

The universe is a really big place. Sometimes, the love of your life is standing right in front of you, and you don’t even realize it. Ashton and Tom had been in each other’s orbit for a while (Ashton’s sister is married to Tom’s brother-adorable right?!) but the stars never quite aligned, until all of […]
