It’s Tuesday morning, February 13th. I just emailed the slideshow preview to my bride from Saturday’s wedding and now I’m getting ready for our next wedding in just a few days in sunny warm Playa Del Carmen, Mexico YAY! But first I wanted to share some of my favorite images from Saturday’s wedding and also talk about what made the day so perfect. The number one thing that made the day so absolutely perfect was good communication and trust. I can’t stress enough how trusting the professionals you have hired to do their job and listening to the recommendations they provide will make your wedding day seamless. When I am helping my couples plan the wedding day, I send out a form that outlines a typical wedding schedule, along with information to help you plan your perfect dream wedding. Every wedding is different, so individualized attention needs to be given. Liz had some ideas of what she wanted her day to be like, lots of different ideas for things she wanted to do, but she wasn’t sure how much time it could end up taking, and which things would actually work the way she had imagined. She also knew that she wanted to capture some fun wedding party and bridal portraits with a scene that captured the essence of a Minnesota winter since she was having a Minnesota winter wedding. I took all of these things into account and scouted out a few locations that were close enough proximity to her venue that we could make it work with her schedule. She also wanted to make a pit stop at a fun bar that had fond memories from (The Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter) Looking at her timeline I determined that the sun would be at the perfect location that it would be just peeking behind some very tall mature pine trees very near the bar that she wanted to go to right at the time of day that they would be going there following the ceremony. That was going to be the perfect spot for photos. I took a photo and texted it to Liz, she agreed. We had our Minnesota winter wedding all planned. O.K., there was a little more to it then that but that was one of my favorite parts of the planning. Here’s just a small handful of my favorites from the whole day (below), and this is what Liz had to say when she saw her slideshow this morning (it made my day)
Good morning Michelle!!!
I could not have thought of a more PERFECT way to wake-up this morning in Maui than watching your video. HOLY MOLY THOSE PICTURES ARE ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I sent the link to our parents, I think they’ll enjoy it (almost) as much as we are because I can’t stop watching it.
I have no doubt that our wedding would have not been the same at all, and not in a good way, with anyone else. You and Trent were so kind and wonderful and SO incredibly talaneted! Our entire bridal party loved working with you and all of our family and friends commented on how at ease you made everyone. You were the main reason Saturday was so perfect, thank you!!!!
You can do whatever you want with the pictures, they are your and Trent’s work of art 😊
Again, I can’t say enough how appreciative Tom and I are for everything you’ve done and we have absolutely nothing but amazing things to say about you (and Trent of course) and I hope we’ll get to work together soon 👶🏻❤️
