The Mill Site, Anoka | Wedding

Documenting love stories is one of our greatest honors, and being able to celebrate with couples on one of the most special days of their lives is such a gift!  We met Hailey and Lucas last fall for their engagement session in Taylors Falls, and it was so much fun to get to know them and hear their story!  They first met at the Avant Garden in downtown Anoka, and Lucas proposed alongside the Rum River just minutes away.  Naturally, they decided to host their wedding at The Mill Site – Events on the River in Anoka as well, and Emily did an amazing job of ensuring every detail was perfect!

The entire day was filled with countless memories and meaningful tributes with lace.  The lace on Hailey’s robe was from her mother’s wedding dress, and the lace around her bouquet was from her great-great grandmother.  We also loved Hailey’s custom ring box and gorgeous Shane Co. ring! The ladies began the morning with Kalla Lily on hair and makeup, and Hailey’s mom helped her into her gown from Bridal Aisle Boutique.  She met Lucas outside who was looking dapper in his suit from The Black Tux.  The two shared a sweet first look before beginning photos together throughout the grounds.  Soon after, we were joined by family and friends for portraits before the ceremony began.

Following the ceremony, guests mingled alongside the river, soaking up every second of the stunning summer evening!  We headed indoors, where guests enjoyed dinner courtesy of Sterling Catering and Events, followed by cake from Sweet Assurance.  Luke of PM Enterprises hosted the dance, and we topped off the evening with some gorgeous golden hour photos and a sparkler exit.  Hailey and Lucas, we are so thankful to have been part of your beautiful wedding day!
