Katie and Jon are such a great couple in so many ways-they have been such a joy to work with!  They both have such a good sense of humor and strong appreciation for people.  They take nothing for granted.  I have no doubt they will have a very long happy marriage!  This venue is one that I have been to before, located just a short drive from our family cabin.  We have many memories from that area.  The location is so perfect, with the shape of the property and the way the sun sets so perfectly over the rolling hills, it’s truly a photographer’s dream!  Anyway, like I always say, I do pictures better than words, so I’ll get to the point and show you what I’m talking about, just beautiful!!  One last thing, I mentioned to Katie & Jon that they had picked the perfect day to get married as it’s my birthday…the wedding party got wind of this and sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me!!!  Who does that?  Answer-the best wedding party ever!!!

Out of the 1270 images that I took, it was so hard to pick just a few! Here’s the slideshow, and below just a few of my favorites:

So, like many of my cakes, this one started out like this:  I had some left over cream cheese frosting… But I was craving peanut butter and chocolate.  So to make things easy I went to my pantry to see what I had.  I had a chocolate cake mix, so that was great-makes it so much easier!  So I just added about a 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the frosting, added more whipping cream, beat it until it was light and fluffy.  Then I took a bag of Ghirardelli brand 60% cacao chocolate chips, melted them in a double boiler, added about a cup of heavy whipping cream, stirred until smooth.  (This is how you make ganache) I iced the bottom layer of the chocolate cake, poured enough of the chocolate ganache over the top, just to spread in a circle, but not drizzle over.  I let it set.  put another layer of frosting over that, then the top cake layer.  I iced the whole cake with the remaining frosting, then drizzled the ganache that was left over the top.  I topped it with a few crushed toasted pecans, because….pecans.  I like how it’s not overly sweet.  Anyway, I am very serious when I say, I think this is the best tasting cake I have ever had in my life!!!

So I have had the same logo and watermark for about 7 years now…7 years!!!   Seriously, it’s time for something new and fresh!  I have always done my own designs since I do basically do graphic design when I put together save the date cards and wedding books, but I’m thinking maybe for once I hire a professional who specializes in logo design.  I have been looking at so many neat things on the Instagram machine and was so inspired by one graphic design artist in particular.  The things she posted really spoke to me.  I love that she paints, in fact she painted a family portrait of her, her husband and their two little kids for a father’s day gift for her husband….so stinkin sweet!  Her designs spoke to me too-beautiful, professional, interesting & inspiring!  Also, little things like a picture on her website of a bottle of Topo Chico-my husband and I have a pantry FULL of cases of Topo Chico sparkling water in glass bottles.  I don’t even know anyone else who drinks Topo Chico…do you?  We live off of that stuff! Weirdly I feel connected to that.  Anyway, I am SO EXCITED to see what she comes up with!!!   Here’s her website if you’re curious: ashtonlenae.design

She, (like me) has just begun to build her Instagram, so please check her out there as well and give her a follow! ashton lenae

Happy Engagement Season! Congratulations to all of the newly engaged couples out there! In honor of this time I thought I would post a few images from Kayla & Ryan’s engagement session. The photo shoot took place in a location not too far from home.  Kayla lives and works in Woodbury, MN.  They wanted a beautiful woodsy location that reflected the style of the North Woods wedding theme.  After considering numerous beautiful options they decided on going with my recommendation of Willow River State Park in Hudson. Of course the puppy had to get in on some! I love the minimal neutral color tones they went with, they create a clean timeless look for photos.  I’m looking forward to Kayla & Ryan’s wedding later this year!IMG_4040
