Samantha and Anthony Married at McColl Pond Environmental Learning Center

Samantha and Anthony Married at McColl Pond Environmental Learning Center in Savage, Minnesota. They held their summer wedding the beginning of August on a beautiful warm and sunny day.

The bride and groom focused their weddings theme on being environmentally friendly and a sustainable green wedding. The McColl Centers building is made of sustainable materials and the couples receptions table decorations were natural or reusable items.

One of my favorite portraits of the bride and groom with the sun illuminating their wedding altar. Also notice the dramatic sky, we were right on the edge of a summer storm system!

While we were out for some evening wedding portraits there were some summer storm clouds brewing to the north of the wedding venue. It made for a nice dramatic sky for this photo.

I also had the pleasure of working with the newly weds on their engagement portraits! Check out the blog post with their engagement sessions image highlights at Hidden Falls Regional Park in St Paul, Minnesota!
