This was a wedding that I was excited about ever since the first phone call I had with Ali. She seemed so chill, trusted me, is up for anything, and is obviously stunning and then paired with her man, Lou, they were just a fantastic couple. You could feel their love for each other through how they would talk gently with each other, hold each other, kiss each other, ah I just love love when it’s so obvious and sweet.
Ali & Lou first read notes that they had written each other and opened gifts. This is always a sweet moment for me to be a part of because it’s such an intimate moment, where intimate words are said, yet the other doesn’t get to see it so I get to tell that story for all to see. Ali & Lou had their first look right outside their venue, The Machine Shop. Some tears may have been shed which always makes me happy! They then joined their intense- that being a great thing- bridal party for pictures at this gorgeous garden in Edina. Having your best friends, who also love having a good time, around you on your wedding day is such a blessing! And it’s always fun to watch friends having the best time together.
Ali’s dress, from Grace Loves Lace, was so boho and looked so lovely on her! Her flowing bouquet from Poppy Lane Designs paired perfectly with it! Scroll down to see more luscious greens, beautiful maids, hilarious men, and a love that can be sensed through images.
