Alissa’s dreams were coming true before her very eyes. She got to spend a year planning her dream wedding, and fortunately for Dave, she chose to cast him as the lead roll. These two adore each other and it’s not hard to see why they fit so well together. The two had everything planned to point, from fun playful photo ideas to key relationships they wanted captured. Family is their universe and they kept that central in all the day’s events. The Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis was iconic for such a top-of-the-world experience for guests and family alike, much thanks to the wedding planning expertise of Hart and Sole. What a day to remember!

One special day for family and friends on the farm was the vision for Deb and Norm as they invited those closest to them in on a little sweetness this sunny day in September. Green Acres Event Center sparkled in the sun as guests were treated to a brilliant outdoor ceremony underneath the trees. Food was themed around the farm and everyone enjoyed the coziness of all being in one big room together. As the band broke into song, the Crazy Cam opened and kept spirits high long into the night.

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.
