I know I’ve said this before, but we love love. Especially when it’s so joyfully exchanged and contagious as it was between Rachel and Dan on their wedding day. I don’t even know where to begin with Rachel and Dan’s wedding day: beautiful, unique, fun, lots of laughter, rustic, vintage, homey, DIY, fall, horses, motorcycles… the list goes on and yet doesn’t even fully sum up their wedding! Getting to be these two’s wedding photographer was a huge honor, and with them living only 30 minutes from Cottage Grove, Minnesota, I expect that we’ll be back at their house to go horseback riding in the future!
Brennan, Ethan’s best man, stood up in front of Ethan and Kirstin’s wedding guests and explained his first impression of Ethan.
“I thought he was just a classic white Minnesotan boy who didn’t know how to talk to girls.”
After all, when Brennan met Ethan, he learned he was a studying to be an accountant and didn’t find him to be overly talkative or anything, so when he found himself in the middle of having to be on a group date with Ethan – watching a Disney movie and making the girls dinner (a classic Northwestern tradition) – he told Ethan to just let him do the talking.
When Mark & I explain that we are a husband and wife wedding photographer team, we are often asked, “What’s your craziest bridezilla story?!” And we’re then excited to explain that we really haven’t had any! This is the honest truth, we have been so blessed to work with amazing couples each and every wedding day for their wedding portraits and Gabby and Donny are another one of those couples!
You know how when some people ask how you are doing they really care? That when they smile softly you can see the glimmer of kindness in their eyes? This is the best way that I can explain Rachael and Andy. These two are the sweetest couple: so down-to-earth, so genuine, and absolutely radiating with love for one another. We were blessed to be their wedding photographers and walk alongside them in their wedding day as a husband and wife photography team. And getting to explore the beautiful Settlement Hills Farm in Hudson, Wisconsin? All the more special! Settlement Hill Farm is a beautiful venue that’s been open for weddings about 7 years. The owners bought it in 1996 and have done a gorgeous job renovating it to make it perfect for a wedding day!
Wow, oh wow, oh wow.
