Today on the blog, we’re revisiting a lovely July wedding at North Star Farm Event Center in Le Sueur, MN. From beginning to end, Kaitlin & Joey’s day was an absolute pleasure. North Star Farm Event Center proved to be the perfect venue, offering guests plenty of shaded spots to mingle and offering the bride and groom (and I) some awesome photo locations.
Shortly after I arrived, Kaitlin had an emotional first look with her dad (her mom joined in too!) Next, it was time for Kaitlin and Joey to see each other for the first time! From the first looks onward, it was a whirlwind of photos with their awesome bridal party and families. When we were planning the timeline of their day, we made sure to give ourselves plenty of time for photos so that things didn’t feel rushed or chaotic. Having a little time to try new things was super fun for me and I think we made some beautiful photos together!
After a beautiful heartfelt ceremony with just as many laughs as there were tears, it was time to party! Mr. Pig Stuff BBQ literally brought a whole hog which the bride and groom had some pretty funny interactions with (trust me, the photo evidence is here!) and Jake Palmer kept the evening running with enthusiasm as the DJ. Just before I left for the night, the new Mr. & Mrs. and I snuck out for some sunset photos and we definitely got what we were looking for!
Kaitlin and Joey, thank you so much for trusting me to photograph such an important day in your lives. It was an honor to witness you becoming husband and wife alongside your family and friends. I’d happily photograph a wedding of yours like… once a year if you’re interested in throwing a few more parties 😉
Now, some of my favorites to tell the story of the day!
