We love the personal stories behind each couple and seeing how their friends and family surround them to celebrate them on their day. This is definitely the case for Trent and Erin. These two, while nervous the first bit of the day, instantly relaxed once they saw each other at Guardian Angels Catholic Church (The church Erin was baptized in and went to preschool in as a child.) for their first look. From that point on through having so much fun dancing at Northern Stacks Events, they couldn’t help but overflow with joy and smiles.
It all started in a college class. These two just so happened to both take it and after meeting Sierra, Andrew decided he wanted to get to know her more. When he realized she was doing tennis, that meant he decided, “Sure, why not try tennis?” They soon spent their bus rides talking as well as walking to and from practice just hanging out and getting to know each other more. The rest? History – well, not quite yet! These two were soon inseparable, especially when it came to playing sports around Crown College’s beautiful campus, enjoying different leadership positions while at school, and simultaneously growing in their relationship together and closer with God. It should be no surprise then that since so much of their relationship has happened while at Crown College, they have chosen to have their wedding day in October at…Crown College.
I snuck this family in right before Christmas for a Christmas tree mini portrait session. I love the chance to see the progression of life firsthand as it goes along. I first met these two when they were engaged, and we were able to capture their wedding day at The Grands at Mulligan in St. Cloud. Then we captured their maternity photos of little Gavin and did their family photos last year. So, to add another year of family photos, capturing the exciting moments before another precious baby enters the world? Priceless!
A slew of Christmas songs and lyrics are running through my head on this Christmas Eve. Can't help but love this time of year with moments like these photos where you can gather with those you love far and near, and celebrate because the birth of the Savior is here. Scarrow family, so fun to connect with you at the beautiful Union Depot in downtown St. Paul!
“Yes, it’s actually happening!” is what was written on the ringbearer’s sign as he walked down the aisle with his brother to his uncle and surrounded by all those near and dear to Sabrina and Lukas. The day had truly, finally come. These two were becoming one. It had been such a long and complicated process. Yes, Lukas had finally gotten down on one knee to ask Sabrina to marry him, but the two of them never planned for a world with coronavirus and especially didn’t plan having to plan and postpone a wedding amidst a pandemic. As Sabrina’s older sister remarked during the older sister’s toast, Sabrina continued to smile and have joy throughout it all, saying “Well, at least I got one thing right! I get to marry Lukas!” You can tell when a couple has everyone cheering them on for their wedding day, and this was one such couple. Speech after speech and toast after toast, we heard about how perfect these two are for each other and how unbelievably excited it is for them to officially be man and wife.
