From the moment we met Natalie and Mike on a gorgeous summer evening for their engagement session in Taylors Falls, we knew their wedding day would be amazing. Hope Glen Farm in Cottage Grove was the perfect venue for their spring wedding, and their day could not have been more beautiful! Eryka and her team did a fabulous job of ensuring all ran smoothly from start to finish.
We began the morning with the ladies along with the talented Bri Morin on hair and Lady Vamp Artistry on makeup. Natalie’s mom helped her into her stunning dress from Effie’s Bridal Trunk, and the day had officially begun. From Natalie’s first look with her bridesmaids and her father and mother, to the sweet moment when she first saw Mike, every single reveal was such an honor to photograph! Following breathtaking bride and groom portraits among the flowering trees, we had so much fun together capturing wedding party photos! The men were looking dapper in their suits from Milbern Clothing and Studio B Floral did an incredible job of creating bouquets that paired perfectly with the girl’s gorgeous bridesmaids gowns. We finished up with family photos just before the ceremony began.
Following a beautiful ceremony, guests mingled throughout the grounds enjoying the warm, sun-soaked evening. The reception space looked amazing, complete with custom signs that were a hit for photo backdrops. Guests enjoyed speeches and dinner by This Little Piggy Catering, and Adagio DJ Entertainment finished off the night with an epic dance party. We topped off the evening with a sparkler exit and a few romantic night shots under the lights. Natalie and Mike, it was such a pleasure serving you for your wedding day! We hope your honeymoon in Colorado was incredible, and are so excited for your trip to Hawaii next fall!
