Bridgit and I had so much fun just LOOKING at this wedding...let alone photographing it! =) As you can see, everything is very unique, from the brides dress and sandals, the wedding party attire. Janelle has amazing taste and it was SO much fun to be able to photograph it!
We did all of the pictures at the Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen before the wedding...it is stunning place that is special to both Janelle and Andrew. Andrew grew up visiting it with his family...and has now entered the tradition of visiting with his family in the making =)
They had given each other 4 stuffed bears representing various things throughout their relationship....this is the flower girl and one of the bears (she pulled a wagon of bears down the aisle! They were after all...the ring "bear"ers!)
How cute is she with all the guys?!
The plan was to get married at the Noerenberg Gardens, however, literally minutes after we arrived to wait for the ceremony to begin, it started down pouring....we huddled under umbrellas for about 20 minutes before they decided to head back to the Arboretum (where the reception was to be held) and have the ceremony indoors. I was TOTALLY impressed by their attitude! All they knew was that they were getting married!
And besides...as Janelle kept reminding us, it is GOOD LUCK for it to rain on your wedding day =)
It was a pleasure to experience all of this with you guys! Thank you for choosing us =)
