Logan and Sam Married

Logan and Sam were married this summer in early June in Excelsior, Minnesota on the Paradise Charter Cruises Paradise Destiny II located outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. They held a small wedding with about forty guests of close friends and family and it could not have been more perfect of a day for them weather wise! Storms were predicted but as you can see from the below images we had blue skies and mild temperatures.

I adored them as a couple, they were both so sweet to work with and made me feel like part of their family! Thank you guys, it was such a pleasure photographing and documenting your wedding day!

I love incorporating architecture into my wedding photography. It adds the photos composition and allows the viewer to experience the environment of the moment, like a gorgeous sunny summer afternoon in a park!
