Amanda + Tyler // Boho Porcupine Mountains Wedding // Ontonagon, MI

Howling ghosts they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lionheart.
And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lionheart

Amanda and Tyler got hitched on a gorgeous spring day surrounded by their closest friends and family. They love hiking and camping so obviously the Porcupine Mountains made the perfect location. And they’re huuuuge Star Wars fans (what up what up fellow nerds!!!) so it’s pretty convenient that they will get to celebrate their anniversary on May the Fourth for the rest of their lives. This wedding seriously had everything good. Star Wars, donuts, gorgeous decor, tacos (Did you hear me?! TACOS!), best dressed wedding party, light sabers, a cozy fire at the end of the night, and laid back vibes. Take notes guys. THIS is how you do a wedding.

Amanda and Tyler’s day was so laid back and the timeline gave us lots of time for portraits which means we got a ton of badass pictures. It also helped that these guys were dressed to the nines and couldn’t stop dancing and laughing with each other the whole time.

Jenna + Shane // Rainy Fall Wedding // Spirit Mountain Duluth Minnesota

Jenna and Shane brought some of that PNW to the midwest a couple weekends ago for their wedding. It was foggy and moody and totally 100% romantic. The universe has been conspiring for a long time to bring these two together. They rode the same bus as children and grew up in the same town. It wasn’t until years later though that they finally met at a friend’s birthday party. The connection was instant. Since that night they have grown and travelled and built a life together. Their love has flourished through long distances and adventures and raising the cutest pup ever.
They did their wedding their way. They had their first look in the rainy woods, hugged and kissed and walked in a foggy field for the most bomb portraits ever, and exchanged vows on a mountain top. I think everyone that knows Jenna and Shane will agree that they are the most laid back, go with the flow couple. They laughed with each other the whole day and took everything in stride (the rain, the wind, the mud).

First looks like these just melt my little black heart. For real though. Try not to smile while you look at these.

I’m obsessed with their style. Future couples, take note.

I have no idea if I was screaming while I was actually taking these, but you better believe I was when I finally got them on my computer. Holy.Shit.Have.Mercy.

I’m a classic lit snob so all the Pride and Prejudice/Wuthering Heights/Jane Eyre vibes in these pictures are absolutely killlling me.

This just might be my most favorite bridal portrait ever. Yup. It definitely is.

I 100% support sipping whiskey to warm up. These are my people.

Jenna and Shane are serious troopers. I wish I could explain to you how cold we all were at this point in the day. But LOOK AT THEM!!!

The coziest dinner/reception. I was straight up obsessed with the feel. Like gimme a blanket, a book, and some coffee with Jameson and I’ll just stay here forever.

Maija + John // Backyard Wedding // Vesper Wisconsin

Maija and John are just good freaking people. They're the kind of people who honestly deserve happiness. They are funny and family oriented and from the moment you meet them they feel like your oldest friends. I'm obsessed with them. Whatever. I said it.
Maija and John balance each other out so well it's hard to believe there was ever a time when they weren't together. They are best buds who love traveling, seeing live music, and drinking beer. So yeah, they're my kind of people and I knew their wedding was gonna be pretty damn amazing. Honestly I would have been pissed if they had let someone else photograph it ;)

Prep pictures are always some of my favorites. I love watching my couples hang out with their closest people. The excitement is contagious.

I had to climb onto the window ledge in my socks to hang Maija's dress up... totally worth it.

Maija and John met at Jennings, so obviously they had to have their first look behind the bar. I 100% support this decision.

Weddings are.stressfuuul. Plain and simple. But the moment Maija saw John she went from anxious to totally and completely relaxed. That's why first looks are the best.

I already said this but weddings are stressful. So I'm totally fine with breaking for drinks.

I love seeing backyards get transformed into pure magic. All the greenery and cake on every table. Yup. It was gooooood.

I don't mean to brag, but my mom made those cakes. And those sugar flowers. If you want the most gorgeous and most delicious cakes. Pam is your lady!

I hound all my couples to sneak away from the reception so we can take more awesome pictures. And obviously so they can make out.

I only spent approximately 15 minutes off of the dance floor. Because these are the most fun photos and I like to party.
