Roger & Ruth { against all odds }

Roger and Ruth truly stole my heart. These two have been married for 53 years now! Talk about #goals But things haven't always been so easy for them. Back when these two love birds wanted to tie the knot their families did not approve, Roger was catholic and Ruth was Lutheran. Back then marrying someone of a different religious background was much more frowned upon than it is now. Despite their families non-supportive nature these two still wanted to place themselves before God and vow to spend the rest of their lives together. They had a couple friends with them and acquired only 3 photographs from that day! (pictured on the buffet below). They have built a beautiful life together since then. They have raised children together & worked HARD for everything they have. They have chosen God over adversity and he done nothing short of blessing them. Sometimes you just have to listen to God's Plan for it can be far greater than you could ever imagine <3 

CONGRATULATIONS to Roger & Ruth for 53 years!!! Cheers!

Minnesota elopement in the woods { a styled shoot}

Hey guys! I am so excited to share this styled shoot with you! After meeting up for coffee with Ashley & Emily from Moody hues floral we came up with an idea for an elopement style shoot, something colorful, romantic and dreamy :)  We needed to bring a few other vendors on board to make this thang happen & models...can't forget the models! lol This is the first time I had done anything like this, I mean this extensive anyway! In the beginning I was excited but also a tad nervous about really putting myself out there like this. Seriously though, not really sure what I was worried about at all. (just that social anxiety talkin I guess). 

For real though,

All these ladies are incredible and so so talented at what they do! I think we all made a great team & I feel so thankful for this experience as I have gained a few new friends in this awesome wedding industry! I hope you all enjoy this shoot with this gorgeous couple, Mike & Holly! They were so fun & totally up for anything which really makes my job sooo much easier! Thanks again for all your hard work ladies!  

Enjoy! <3
