The first wedding of the year is always a special one – it’s the start of a new adventure, a new season of love, a new set of amazing couples to get to know, and new wonderful stories to tell. What I’m trying to say is that regardless of the wedding (how beautiful it is, how in the love the couple is, how crazy the guests are, etc.), the first wedding is always memorable. In Heidi and Tony’s case, however, their wedding would be memorable whether it was the first, the last, or happened 20 years ago. They had the kind of love that you just don’t forget.

Heidi and Tony have been together for about five years. When they first met, at an event for Heidi’s Matron of Honor’s wedding, they had an instant connection – one that everyone noticed, and everyone was excited about. The day of their wedding seemed like day one for them all over again – if anything their connection and passion for one another had grown.

Their first look is a perfect example of this, and one of the most beautiful first looks we have ever witnessed. Heidi naturally lights up a room, I swear, her smile literally radiates joy. But for Tony, she lights up his life. When he saw her for the first time on their wedding day, he couldn’t stop letting her know how true this was for him – how beautiful she was, how amazing she was, and how excited he was to marry her. And that same passionate, authentic love continued to shine throughout the entire day.

There was not a single moment that wasn’t full of joy. Heidi and Tony were so obviously in love and so obviously excited to be spending the rest of their lives together that their happiness spread throughout the entire wedding and everyone who was there. So, they celebrated! In a fun loving, St. Patty’s day fashion! It was a celebration indeed, and one that all who were present will remember dearly for a long time.

Heidi and Tony – your relationship is inspiring. I have no doubt your love and passion for one another will only continue to grow (as it has already) for the rest of your lives. It was such a joy to capture your special day, congratulations again!

cold winter engagement shoot, winter minneapolis engagment, adventurous couple, cold weather pictures

Before I say anything about Megan & Ben’s story and how wonderful they are, I first need to tell you that the day we ventured out together to take these engagement photos was freezing. I’m serious, like 20-degrees-below-zero-with-windchill freezing. How awesome the pictures turned out, even in unfavorable weather conditions, is your first insight into Megan and Ben’s personalities and their relationship. They so joyfully trekked across ice shelves and the frozen Mississippi River, enjoying time together, regardless the circumstance.

Our frozen adventure made me realize that Megan and Ben really cherish every second that they have together. A chance for them to be together is a chance to celebrate, no matter the weather or situation. They are both extremely driven people, who motivate each other to work hard but also motivate each other to take necessary breaks, unplugged from work and outside thoughts, to just focus on each other. I really admire this in them. Witnessing a love like Megan and Ben’s, will always be worth bearing frigid temperatures.

They are truly the perfect pair, in so many ways. They both have similar interests: exploring yummy dinner and drink spots around the cities, tinkering with computers and electronics, being outdoors, and most importantly, the desire to never stop learning. They are alike, but not so much so that they don’t challenge each other – they help each other grow. Megan says that being with Ben helps her to drop the weight of the world off her shoulders. A smile and a hug from him has an amazing (“super” in her eyes) power to make everything better. It is obvious that Ben is willing to go great lengths to bring a smile to Megan’s face. The amazing proposal he planned for her makes that hard to deny. Stayed tuned for their wedding blog to hear more details!

Congratulations Megan and Ben! You two and your loving, adventurous souls are beautiful. Thanks for bearing the freezing temperatures with me! I’m down for round two if you are.

engagements, fall, love, couple, prettyleaves,

Before I go into detail about Rachel and Joe’s amazing love story and relationship, I feel like I need to address how awesome their engagement shoot was. Rachel and Joe’s engagement session was a picture perfect (literally) example of what a fall engagement photos should look like. Stunning bright yellow leaves covering the trees and the ground around them. The weather was cold enough for a sweater but also warm enough to dress up a little fancy, too. To top it off, they included their sweet dog Emma, who is not only adorable, but wore a scarf! Rachel and Joe made it impossible for this shoot to be anything but amazing.
After two minutes of witnessing Rachel and Joe’s chemistry and one look at their adorable dog, I was sold. But as I continued to learn more about them, I couldn’t help but fall in love with their relationship. I would describe it as powerfully simple. They met at work. It was Rachel’s first job out of college, and Joe helped show her the ropes around the company. Just two months into officially dating, Joe looked at Rachel calmly and said, “Someday I’m going to marry you.” They both knew that it was true. About five years after that, when the couple was vacationing in California, they made what they both knew to be true, official. While at a vineyard taking pictures for Rachel’s fashion blog, Joe suddenly handed the camera off to a friend. Joe walked over to Rachel, with a huge smile on his face, and told her how beautiful she looked. And before Rachel knew it, he was on one knee, with the ring, asking her to spend the rest of her life with him. She had to take a moment to catch her breath and say, “YES!” And before he even had time to put the ring on Rachel’s finger, it started pouring rain. If that isn’t magical, I don’t know what is.
I loved their shoot, I love their story, and I really love that these too know how to do something that many people don’t—keep it simple. They go through life appreciating the little things and enjoying them together. Rachel described their favorite thing to do together, aside from traveling, as spending Friday nights in with their dog Emma, a movie, pizza, and beer or whiskey. These two just get it. They love each other, they love experiencing new things together, they love their sweet dog, they love good food and drinks, and they just simply love doing life together. And I love that. Congrats you two! I am beyond excited for your wedding.

We first fell in love with Nova and John after hearing their engagement story. It was just so beautiful and unique. John teamed up with Nova’s father to plan what she thought was an elaborate scavenger hunt for her birthday. The hunt led her throughout her favorite places in her hometown and ended with a huge surprise—John and a ring!

To say the least, we fell in love with this awesome couple all over again on their wedding day. The entire day held the same kind of character that their engagement story did. It was all so intentionally and uniquely “them.” They continued with fall-themed details similar to their engagement photos and took it one step further by creating decorations that showcased their journey together. Each table was named after a different place they had travelled together and decorated with a pumpkin with the name of the place written on it. They even honored their common interests with awesome South Park cake toppers! It’s special to be in an environment that is so personal to the people who created it. I felt like I got to know Nova and John better by simply stepping into their wedding venue, which is rare.

What’s even more amazing is that the personal touches didn’t just come from them—those involved in the wedding added something special as well. You could tell the entire bridal party was super close friends, who loved Nova and John. Which made it clear that this special couple didn’t just focus on investing in each other, but they invest and care for their friends together as well. Everyone was just having a good time together. The dance floor reflected this perfectly, as it was full of energy and laughter all night. But the most touching and unique moment from the guests came from Nova’s father, during his Father-of-the-Bride speech. As he was talking he slowly unloaded objects from a box he had brought with him. The first was a rock from the glacier he visited. The second was a full bottle of water from the same glacier that he had been saving for eight years. Those two objects symbolized the potential and trust he had in the newlyweds to grow old together. And to close, he handed an old rose bud to John, because on this day, he was “handing him his rose.” It was so sentimental and intentional, it made it obvious how much he loved Nova, and how much he loved that John loved Nova, too.

I felt so lucky to be involved in a wedding that was so beautiful, so full of love, and so personal to the bride and groom. It was an honor to be let inside and given a opportunity to fully understand Nova and John’s wonderful relationship and the wonderful people that surrounded them. Congratulations again, you two! You are so loved and you love so well, this will undoubtedly inspire a lifetime of happiness together.

Sam & Dave’s story started in 2013. They worked together in the same office and quickly developed a friendship rooted in their mutual appreciation of each other’s kindness and personalities. After years of lunches and happy hours, with coworkers and just with each other, their friendship suddenly developed into more. Last minute after work, they decided to go see the movie “Her.” As the plot of the story unfolded, both Sam and Dave were stunned at how the movie seemed to mirror what was currently happening in their own lives. Read this synopsis of the movie, and you’ll understand.

“A sensitive and soulful man earns a living by writing personal letters for other people. Left heartbroken after his marriage ends; Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) becomes fascinated with a new operating system that reportedly develops into an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. He starts the program and meets ‘Samantha’ (Scarlett Johansson), whose bright voice reveals a sensitive, playful personality. Though ‘friends’ initially, the relationship soon deepens into love.”

That night, both Sam and Dave dreamt about each other. They both realized that the chemistry that had been developing between them was something special—something that they could not and did not want to ignore. But the irony of the movie did not create something new between them; it simply shed light on what was already there. And what was already there turned out to be a really beautiful thing—a beautiful and forever thing.

Two years later, Sam and Dave travelled to Gimmelwald, Switzerland. Sam had travelled there herself five years prior and carved her initials in the wood frame of a hut along the mountainside. It read, “SJ + ____.” She intentionally left half blank, with the intentions of returning with the person she would spend the rest of her life with. After a day of hiking through mountains and waterfalls, they found that very same hut. Sam had a feeling she would be carving Dave’s initials next to hers, but what she didn’t know was that Dave had been holding a ring in his pocket the entire day. In beautiful mountains of Switzerland, next to their freshly carved initials, Dave asked Sam to spend the rest of her life with him. She obviously said, “yes!”

Sam and Dave’s love story is one for the books, but being present on their wedding day made it obvious that they are more than just a beautiful story. Everything about their special day was low-maintenance. Neither of them was stressed, worried about small details, or concerned with anything but each other and the loved ones who came to celebrate with them. Scroll down until you see pictures of speeches being given. Uncontrollable laughter, smiles radiating pure joy, and everyone present in the moment. That is a perfect depiction of Sam and Dave’s wedding day, and ultimately their love. Congratulations again Sam and Dave! You brought so many, including myself, happiness on your wedding day. I have no doubt that you will continue to do that for the rest of your lives together.
