Forest Wedding | Julia James Place
A rain soaked the day in the Minnesota forest at Julia James Place. The downpours made the surrounding trees a shade of green I’d never seen. The rain would let up for Liz & Jonny to see each other for the first time and once again for their outdoor ceremony. In the end, the rain seemed a second theme of the day, as if it was always intended.
It was fun to watch Liz & Jonny interact, so playful and lighthearted. Early in the day, they each spent time drawing cartoon cat pictures for each other. Liz’s name is now Elizabeth Bennett, and oh yes I am a sucker for Jane Austin and anything remotely related. But she is the heroine of her own beautiful story.
By the end of the night the rain poured and they answered back by lighting off roman candles into the sky. Minnesota was an unexpected delight. The wedding was beautiful, their friends and family welcoming and two people who love each other are now married.
