A rain soaked the day in the Minnesota forest at Juliane 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.

Jonny is a talented photographer and Liz an amazing photo retoucher, check out their work.

  6. Because I’ve seen a million wedding blogposts I’m lately pretty bored of them and scroll fast through, only looking at a couple photos that catch my eye. This one I looked through every single image. It was enchanting to me. That was a beautiful and unique wedding and you guys did an **incredible** job.

  7. Damn. This wedding is gorgeous and your images are stunning. You guys did them justice, as always. Great stuff!

    You rock!
