a hot pink, glam meets rustic flair backyard wedding (Megan + Justin are married!) – Minnesota wedding photography

Growing up in Minnesota I find I have a certain nostalgia for various places.  Two of these places that I adore aesthetically and culturally is Buffalo (my hometown) and Minneapolis.  Michaela + Cole’s engagement shoot satisfied my craving to photograph in downtown Buffalo, but I was still dying to photograph in specific areas of downtown Minneapolis.  Turns out, Megan was dying to do their engagement session in downtown Minneapolis right around the corner from the spots I had been eyeing for years.  We chatted about our ideas and desires and came up with a perfect blend for her to hit up her favorite spots and mine!  It was epic!  I totally spent about 2 hours with them romping around the city because I couldn’t stop photographing them and continued to stumble on even more awesome photo spots.

Needless to say, after such a fantastic experience with these two on their engagement shoot I was beyond looking forward to their wedding.  I was also so excited because I learned very quickly from Megan that I was going to be in charge of photographing a truly unique wedding – she described their look to me as pink + glam meets rustic flair.  As she talked into further detail I learned I was getting to photograph another backyard wedding, my favorite, decorated with chandeliers, black and white all around with hot pink accents, and a little bit of wood and moss in the mix to satisfy Justin’s craving for the natural look.  The combination of the two of their tastes, obviously, was gorgeous!  I loved the personal flavor of the wedding and the DIY/glam feel to the whole day -can’t say I ever would have imagined those two describing words lumped together!
