John called the studio the moment he knew he was going to make Emily his wife. It was one of the best phone calls I have received, and you could just hear that the excitement and awe of the moment had grabbed him. John comes at the world much that same way, wide-eyed and ready to take on most anything that comes his way. Emily loves adventure and is the ‘roll-with-it’ partner John needed. To top that off, she is off-the-charts stunning through and through! As Edina high school crushes, the two have found a way to make life weave along with their adventures. I was invited out to New York this past winter to get a peek into life as they know it and document some of the fun with a night engagement shoot. For their wedding, Janelle Vick of White Confetti, had things neatly in place to allow for the day to flow smoothly. Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church opened its doors enthusiastically to welcome everyone before the Minikahda Club’s impressive ‘mic-drop’ of a closing performance left guests raving about the days’ perfection. John had his Emily, and she her John. Life does not get any sweeter in teenage dreams.
