Anyone who has planned a wedding knows first hand - it is a FEAT that requires a ton of energy, thought, time, and care. That's why we're always beyond impressed with backyard / home weddings, where each and every element must be considered from scratch.
Justine and Nick couldn't imagine being married anywhere but her parents' stunning home in central Minnesota, and they pulled it off perfectly. The day exuded connection, meaning, positive energy, and joy at every turn. Any event or item that was included in the day was 100% thoughtful and symbolic, tied in some way to their history or future. Highlights of the day: Nick surprised Justine with an original song full of stories and inside jokes from their relationship, photos with the "Green Machine" camper van they were gifted for future adventures, the full-on sprint by the wedding party after the first kiss right up to the first dance, and music by a polka band AND a live band for a killer dance party.
We'll never tire of weddings that are rooted in truth, family, friends that are like family, and good ol' fun. Thank you Justine and Nick for letting us be a part of it!
