Caitlin & Thomas



September 15, 2008     Weddings

I am thankful beyond words for my friends, family and clients who spread the word about my business so generously and passionately.

I met Caitlin back in 1998 when my good friend Meghan, Caitlin's sister, introduced us one weekend home from college at their family's house in St. Paul. I never could have imagined that 10-years later I would be photographing Caitlin's most-beautiful wedding! Caitlin and Thomas were made for each other - for that I am certain. It was an inspiring wedding to photograph and another in which I was so honored to capture.

From Thomas's tuxedo's that he personally designed to Caitlin's Melissa Sweet wedding gown, their day was filled with class, love and personalization.

I can't thank you enough Caitlin and Thomas! Your wedding was extraordinary and such a joy to photograph!



After the ceremony we stopped at Chambers in downtown Minneapolis for a little art and beverage. :)



We also visited the Walker Art Center, which was amazing for photos! The bridesmaids were all wearing different dresses and it was pulled off magnificently! They were absolutely gorgeous!!



I personally think these guys could be in a magazine....



...with this couple on the cover. :)







The ever-so-fabulous reception at Graves 601 Hotel in Minneapolis was incredible thanks to Catering Manager Becky Soderholm.



The breathtaking Caitlin (Um, Modern Bride magazine anyone!? Seriously!!!)



One of my many favorites...



Gettin' cozy at Cosmos in Graves







I love catching candids like these



Ok, so one of the main highlights of the night was the Mike Dangeroux band from Chicago, IL. They were A-MAZING!!!! I really had to hold myself back from busting a move on the dance floor.:) If ANYONE is looking for a band for their wedding, you just must call them! They will exceed your expectations!









The best conga line I've seen this year! (thanks to Mike Dangeroux):)

Kathleen & Marc



September 15, 2008     Weddings

This weekend was unreal! I photographed two beautiful weddings that I'm so excited to share with you. I'll start with Friday's wedding and post Saturday's within the next couple of days. Each wedding was unique and very different from one-another...(one of the many reasons I love what I do!)

Friday's wedding went off without a hitch and Kathleen and Marc were so much fun to work with. Kathleen wore a stunning Anne Barge dress that was absolutely perfect for her! With the gorgeous church on Summit Avenue; the sparkling Rolls Royce; the amazing flowers from Nicole Chittenden; and of course, the fun-loving couple, the day was truly unforgettable!

I will let the photos do the rest of the talking....:)




Kathleen & Marc opted to see each other before the ceremony, which is always so nice when a couple decides to do this



Nicole Chittenden did a beautiful job on the flowers!



One of my favorites...

The couple was beaming the entire day and Marc's humor had everyone laughing! :)



Gettin' hitched at House of Hope Presbyterian Church on Summit Avenue in St. Paul!



Married!

Officially ready!



September 11, 2008     Personal

Get ready for blog posts galore! :) I have 2 weddings this weekend and 2 weddings next weekend with some engagements and family shoots scattered in during the week and I'm officially READY! I'm so excited about each of them and I'm already anxious to download my cards to see the images! I suppose I have to shoot them first though...:) I have been anticipating this month for quite some time and it's probably going to be the busiest I have ever been. I look forward to the challenge, the inspiring locations I'll be shooting at and most importantly, the AMAZING people I'll be working with.
Stay tuned and check back often! I'll have much to share with you!

My husband



September 9, 2008     Personal

Today marks the day my amazing husband, Eric, was born. Minus the fact that he is almost exactly 11 months YOUNGER than I (and reminds me of this every September), I truly love this time of year. :) We get to celebrate not only our birthdays, but also our wedding anniversary all in a matter of about 1-month.

Today on his birthday I find my mind constantly drifting back to him (although truthfully, this is not very abnormal from other days). I am incredibly thankful that he is in my life and I'm so fortunate that we found each other. If you have never met him, I hope you do cross paths one day. You will see that he is the most genuine, thoughtful, trusting, loving, passionate, smart, and PATIENT man. His laugh is contagious and his integrity, unmatched. He is an extraordinary person with the kindest heart....and he is a better husband than I could have ever dreamt of. He makes me SO happy.

Happy Birthday hun! Thank you for your undying support, your continuous wisdom and most importantly your unconditional love.

This is Eric doing what he loves most...:)

You know you're going to have a good day when...

...you see the WIENERMOBILE driving down the highway! I was laughing so hard when it appeared beside me this morning on Hwy 100! (I'm pretty sure the license plate says "yummy"!)
