This is the home of my most recent work. Updated sporadically, but with a lot of heart.
The setting was gorgeous, the details elegant, but what made this day was the people; Their dads laughing together. Grandparents having the time of their lives. Little nieces, nephews, and cousins absolutely living it up. If you scroll to the end for no other reason, do it to see Grandma Rose *borrowing* a cowboy hat and getting down on the dancefloor with everyone. Now that's how you celebrate your granddaughter's wedding.
I opened my car door to a wall of July heat. The sun was dipping low, covered by patchy clouds, and the air still.
I glanced around and saw Kaitlin and Mason walking towards me, her cowboy boots and white jumpsuit glowing in the evening light. Beyond them, lush green hills rolled off into the distance. Dirt two-tracks and cattle fences creating geometry in the landscape.
From the moment I walked into Earl Giles Distillery - a spunky Minneapolis venue featuring massive windows, walls of plants, clusters of boho furniture, and colorful murals - I was welcomed so warmly by Maggie's sisters that I felt like family. The day was eclectically designed in the best way. From the dusty roses and mauves in the bridesmaids dresses to the stunning floral installations by Hive and Hollow. Cocktails glimmered like jewels.
