One of the best things about weddings is being able to gather together all of your favorite people in one place, at the same time. Even better if you can take them some place special to you, and you can really share your world with them. For Tara & Ben, that special place they shared with their favorite people is Estes Park, Colorado. And it nearly didn’t happen. Only a couple months before the wedding, their original venue burned down and they were left with the seemingly impossible task of finding a new venue to accommodate their guests who were almost all flying into the state for the destination wedding. Fortunately, they were able to book the recently constructed Pavilion at the Stanley Hotel! The Stanley is famous for it’s incredible views of Rocky Mountain National Park and for supposedly being haunted. Stephen King found his inspiration for The Shining after he and his wife spent a night as the hotel’s only guests. We’re happy to report that despite the challenges they faced leading up to the day, Tara and Ben’s wedding went off without a hitch. No ghosts, no creepy twins in the halls, just two beautiful people declaring their love to each other in the mountains with their closest friends & family. It was a very special weekend that we won’t soon forget.

We love how Lucy Cashin & Jake Gardiner’s film came out, and so we’re excited to share this one with you all!! This is our second wedding with this group of friends and they are so. much. fun!! Seriously this crew has so much fun and energy, they keep the party going all night and they are just a blast to hang out with and film. Just a lovely bunch. Lucy & Jake a are a perfect pair, they both have an exciting and competitive spirit, with such kind and humble hearts. These two are perfectly suited for each other and just light up a room when they enter. They held their big day at the newly restored Minneapolis venue, Machine Shop. This beautiful new hot spot is filled with light and is the perfect example of industrial chic. Sadies Couture Floral delivered some incredible blooms as always….and of course the fabulous Nicolle Sellers at Mother of the Bride pulled the whole look together and the whole celebration went off without a hitch. Enjoy this super fun wedding, and cheers to the Gardiner’s!

What we loved about Jess and Jake is that despite all the people and activity around them on their wedding day, these two took little moments during the day with just the two of them to be together. Even when they were both occupied with hugs & kisses from family and friends, I would catch them stealing quick glances at each other. They were just so excited to start their lives together and it was very clear.

Camrose Hill of course was the perfect setting for their sweet garden wedding. Every direction we pointed our cameras we seemed to land on some picturesque scene. One of Jess’s bridesmaids described it as walking into a real-life Pinterest board. The flowers on the farm were in bloom, butterflies were everywhere, love & laughter filled the air. Congrats to Jess & Jake!

From Jess –

“We are soooo in LOVE with this!!!!!!! Thank you guys for creating such an amazing film for us to remember our day!  You guys were so easy to work with. We were definitely nervous about the cameras, but you made us feel super comfortable.  We are so excited to share this with our friends and family, such beautiful work!”

Mary + Lon

Mary + Lon

Mary and Lon have to be one of the most genuine and likable couples we’ve ever had the pleasure of filming, and Duluth’s historic Glensheen Mansion couldn’t have been a more fitting place for these two architects to tie the knot. The combination of the beautiful estate, lake superior and the surrounding woods has to make Glensheen one of the most picturesque wedding venues in the state. Glensheen may be charming, but it was Mary and Lon who really made this day so special. Come on, just look at the way they look at each other! It was so sweet and there was a definite sparkle in their eyes as they saw each other for the first time that day, as they read their vows to each other and as they danced the night away. You could see their full hearts and pure joy shining through at every moment of their wedding day. A stealthy storm blowing through the area pushed their plans for an outdoor ceremony into the reception tent (and then it ended up not actually raining a drop, go figure). But no change of plans could squash the wonderful celebratory spirit that afternoon as their friends and family gathered to witness their union. It was truly a beautiful day.

This summer celebration was the culmination of a decade long relationship that started for Morgan and Andy in the 8th grade. It was amazing to see the joy and closeness of their friends and family. This gathering wasn’t a tent full of strangers, but two tight knit families celebrating the official union of a very special couple. The Minikahda Club is always gorgeous, but today especially, in large part to the always on point Nicole Sellers of Mother of the Bride. The clear top tent and simple yet elegant decor looked stunning as the sun set and the party took off. It was mentioned several times during speeches that Andy and Morgan love to dance, and it wasn’t an exaggeration. These two truly left it all on the dance floor and held nothing back. Just watch Andy go at the 4:04 mark! We were out of breath just filming him! Morgan and Andy, as the maid of honor said, “Never stop dancing!”

Simply put, Carmen and Tony are crazy adorable. These two have a joy and excitement for life that shined through during their entire wedding day. From start to finish they were happy and energetic and provided us with so many amazing moments to capture.

It was raining for most of the morning, and then only a few minutes before the ceremony, the clouds parted and allowed for a beautiful sunny outdoor ceremony on the banks of the Mississippi. Then just as Carmen and Tony kissed and made their way down the isle it almost immediately started raining again. It was one of those days that couldn’t have worked out any more perfectly.

We had such an amazing time capturing and editing this wedding. It was truly an awesome party as the sun went down and the dancing began. In fact, it was a first for us not being able to find the couple at the end of the night because they were surrounded by a sea of people dancing all around them. We really tried to capture the energy of this party in the edit and need to give Owsey a special thanks for letting us use his amazing music for the dance portion of this video. Please check out his fantastic mixes!
