Tyler & Melissa tied the knot on August 27th in Little Falls, MN and it was such a perfect wedding! The weather was unseasonably cool, but it made the day so pleasant (especially for the guys, who were all suited up in long sleeves and coats!) It was so easy to see how much Tyler loves his bride, and Melissa looked at him with so much admiration all day long!
Melissa and her girls had a low-key morning at the church, and we did bridesmaid and groomsmen photos separate so that Tyler would see Melissa for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Their ceremony was absolutely beautiful (and the church was, too!) Afterwards, we took family photos in the yard, and the new Mr. & Mrs. and I pulled off onto a dirt road on our way to the reception to take more photos. Melissa, who grew up in Little Falls, saw the cornfields and charged right in!
The “energetic bride doing things that brides normally don’t do” theme continued on into the reception, when Melissa and Tyler headed out to the nearby baseball field with some of Tyler’s teammates and some kiddos that had been playing on the field. Melissa hiked up her skirt and totally went for it, nailing line drives and trying to intercept the baseball from anyone who was supposed to be the recipient of it (dives and all!) When the DJ insisted Melissa & Tyler head inside for their first dance, Melissa said “but I just want to play!”
If that’s not enough proof of how awesome these two are, maybe these few favorite images of mine will help convince you 😉 Mr & Mrs Jones, thank you for choosing me to document your wedding day! It was SUCH a fun day and I’m so happy to share these images with you! (There may or may not be a little surprise waiting for you in your Facebook inbox, as well 😉 )
Thank you to all the incredible vendors who made this day even more beautiful!
