Stephanie and Garret’s Beautiful Minnesota Winter Wedding

Stephanie and Garret’s wedding was the best way to wrap up 2017!  They are such a sweet couple, and their day was absolutely perfect!

The ring boxes below on the right were a unique and beautiful way to carry the rings!

The light dusting of snow on the ground added a soft winter touch to the detail images.

Stephanie’s dress was beautiful!  The little cap sleeves were an elegant surprise!  The lace details and subtle sparkles on the dress fit their winter theme perfectly!

Stephanie and Garret choose to see each other before the wedding.  Their first look was tender and emotional and gave them a little oasis of time alone together in the midst of their busy day.  It also allowed us to fit more time in for taking pictures, which is what I love most!

Look at this gorgeous bouquet and boutonniere designed and made by the bride!  She included pine, pinecones and a little bit of holly for that Christmas touch.  Aren’t they beautiful!

You know that any bride and groom that are willing to go outside for pictures during a Minnesota winter are not only tough, but they truly value taking the time and effort to invest into getting the best images!  I’m so glad they did, because their outdoor ones ended up being some of my favorites!

Choosing navy for the men’s suits looked classy with the dark red accents!
