For a date of October 22 in Minnesota, you just don’t know what weather you’re going to get. Chances of snow? That’s a real possibility here, but Sierra and Andrew’s wedding was on the perfect fall weather day. Think sixty degree weather, bright sunny skies, and a slight breeze. They could not have asked for a better day! These two were all smiles as they got ready for their wedding at their alma mater, Crown College. In fact, Crown College wasn’t just the college these two attended – it was the college they met at.
Josh and Erin. It was such a fun time capturing their engagement photos at Highlands Park in Cottage Grove, but it was fun more than the fact that we were taking engagement photos, but because these two are great friends of ours. They met on our couch in our living room. Every time I say that, I can’t help but let out a little laugh and smile. You see, Josh lives like 400 feet from our house. But the story doesn’t start on our couch, I’d argue it goes farther back.
How cute are an engaged couple and their dog? So cute. But then you add sunset time on a beautiful, crisp fall night? To die for adorable. Stephanie and Michael are one such couple. They were beyond sweet during their mini portrait session, all smiles and giggles the entire time. It's such a pleasure to be around people who overflow with joy and are grateful for the day in front of them. It gives those around them life and leaves them smiling — don't you love how smiling is so contagious?
Successfully surprised Erin with asking the question? Yes! Josh rocked his proposal on the dock at Cottage Grove's Ravine Park! Maybe it’s just me, but him not feeling 100% really worked in his favor, because while Erin saw a proposal coming, she didn’t see it on this night – hence, the comfy clothes she wore she says. After all, it was just another one of their favorite walks, right?
Late Summer Apple Orchard Engagement Portraits at Leduc Historic Estates in Hastings // Kaitlin & Taylor
Love is in the air. Well, at least at our young adults group. These two first laid eyes on each other at our church’s Big Game Party. Yep! How exactly did they meet? Kaitlin was leaning against the wall when Taylor arrived and when she introduced herself, he said something to the effect of “Oh, that’s the name of the last girl who broke my heart.” Or something like that. Yeah. Really smooth. So how’d they end up together? Chemistry and friendship. Seriously, these two are two peas in a pod – they love to laugh and have fun. We have been able to watch their relationship these last few months, and so when Taylor popped the question, we knew we wanted to be a part of this next chapter of their lives.
