Special. Loving. Family. Three words describe Rachel & Brody’s wedding day so well! They created a special atmosphere, choosing to not have a wedding party but just their whole family close to them throughout the day! Loving is the filter everything ran through on their day! From Rachel’s first look with her dad, to the couple’s personal vows at the beginning of the day to the reception, this day was filled with love! And family! Their four sets of parents, their siblings, and all of the friends (which included me!) were treated like family the entire day!
Their day started at The Hotel Landing in Wayzata. Rachel was in her bridal room surrounded by family getting her hair & makeup done by Primped MN when I arrived! I had so much fun taking photos of her details – from her invite, to her shoes, beautiful rings from Wedding Day Diamonds, and her bouquet from Artemisia Studios! Incredibly lovely details! I also went across the hallway and took details of Brody’s details in his room! Check out his awesome details! Rachel put on her beautiful dress from The Wedding Shoppe and Brody’s dad helped him into his handsome suit from Martin Patrick 3!
Rachel shared a first look with her dad and it was so sweet! He was just beaming with pride! Then Rachel & Brody shared their first look outside The Hotel Landing! Brody was so happy to finally be with his bride! The couple shared personal vows and each shed tears! It’s so obvious how much these two love each other! We did a few couple’s photos here before heading over to Oak Ridge Country Club! Once we arrived, we did a few more couple’s photos and then family photos as well!
Their ceremony took place in the large main room at the top of the stairs at Oak Ridge! It was cozy, intimate, and the sun had just set outside! They were so happy! They both exchanged rings and were married! Guests enjoyed a social hour in the main ballroom that looked so amazing! I love the back wall of Christmas lights in the ballroom! So wintery and warm! Robyn Kuechle from Artemisia Studios did a great job helping as the day of coordinator in any way she could! The reception went perfectly! Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner, toasts from parents, a dessert bar, and dancing! Instant Request DJ Entertainment did a great job keeping the flow of the reception and guests enjoyed Eric Vest Photography’s “The I Do Booth” photo booth! Before I left, we went outside for a few night photos and it was so fun! Love these two! Congrats to Rachel & Brody!
