Rochester’s Maywood Stone Barn is a destination all its own.  Add one of the summer’s most epic couples and twenty plus of their closest friends to the fun….and poof!  Star this date on your calendar folks.  From her tender last words with her father, to catching her groom wiping away a few tears, Lauren’s huge heart was bursting and her beauty needed no additional words other than ‘wow!’  Alex’s crew comes from the far reaches of the state, most with hockey sticks in hand but thankful they checked them at the door for this day.  After the ceremony under the old oak tree, and sun sank, you could just feel the energy ready to explode in the barn.  The music kicked up, shoes kicked off, and Lauren ran away with her Forever amidst a see of sparklers.

Dreams really do come true.

Brainerd is home to some of the best memories of my life, and after Melissa and David tied the knot, I now have even more reason to smile when visiting “Up North”. Gosh, I adore these two! David is a tender soul with a flare for woodworking magic and Melissa is the best adventure buddy a guy could hope for! The two planned a killer party at the fabulous and newly renovated train station, known as the NP Event Center. With a brewery next door, and incredible food by the folks at Prairie Bay, it made for a great day and worked perfectly for the large wedding party. Everyone fed off David and Melissa’s energy and sipped drinks in between to beat the heat. I can’t wait to have a reunion party back at the studio with you both!

When the steel garage door shut on this night, not only was the vault of fun notified, but the camera had to come out to prove that this night-o-fun happened. Hello Crazy Cam!
