Turtle River Northern MN Wedding Photographer – Kiah and Logan

Kiah and Logan’s wedding day was a great way to kick off summer!  These two are unbelievably sweet and were a blast to be around all day!  Their love for each other is evident in everything they do.

They say it is lucky to have rain on a wedding day, right?  Well it worked out perfectly for Kiah and Logan’s day!  The rain we had provided beautifully diffused light for pictures throughout the day and brought out all the vibrant colors in their details.

Natural Pleasures Floral in Frazee did a fabulous job designing and creating Kiah’s bouquet!  It was perfect!

One of my favorite moments of the day was the first look with Logan. I had felt so nervous all day, but once I saw him I immediately felt better. I knew in that moment that it didn’t matter how things went the rest of the day because everything was still going to end up perfect.  ~Kiah

I love how Kiah had her name and wedding day stitched into her dress with blue thread.

The varied shades of purple in the bouquets and bridal party attire added so much personality and character.

This bridal party definitely knows how to have fun together!

Talk about a dramatic entrance!  Kiah arrived to her wedding ceremony in a pontoon boat!

I can’t get over this cake by Rother’s Just Desserts!  The texture  and design  is amazing!  The bride is also a baker and did a fabulous job on the cupcakes and macarons.  So much talent from these two!

Kiah’s family did all the decorating for their wedding.  They incorporated a lot of fun and unique ideas.  Their guest book was a beautiful wall art piece that guests could sign the leaves on.  One of my favorite design ideas was the ladder over the head table.

I love when my brides and grooms let me sneak them away from their reception for a few more romantic images during sunset.  Kiah and Logan were champs at this!  They didn’t let the rain or wet boat hold them back!  Now they will have these images to cherish for forever!

This group knows how to have fun!  They were all over the dance floor!  Kiah also accomplished her dream of having her bridal party do the “Thriller” dance at the reception!  It was great!
