Laura & Michael


I like these two. I mean, what’s not to like about Laura and Michael? Both come from great families who adore this pairing and for those of us in the married club, we know this means the world! Michael and I first met at his brother’s wedding on the beaches of Jamaica. Over the years, this family has become very special to me. Laura and I also shared many stand-up friends in common so I had starred this date a long time ago. Even Minnesota Bride Magazine took notice of this couple and their engagement session at Grandview Lodge in Brainerd has been featured in the most recent issue and its table of contents. Quite a feat indeed!

As we made our way from the fabulous downtown swank of the Marquette Hotel to the classic architecture of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church, massive snowflakes fell and blessed this day from heaven above and made for memorable photographs. Back at Windows on Minnesota atop the IDS, the party would live on late, but not without Laura and Michael taking a curtain call out on Nicollet Mall as the snow. We love you both and can’t wait to celebrate again in the studio!
