It didn’t matter that Alyssa & Taylor’s wedding day was overcast and rainy because their smiles and the personalities of their wedding party surely made up for it. Alyssa and Taylor were married Saturday afternoon in a small Lutheran church located in Mountain Lake, MN. They celebrated with family and friends, and danced the night away at Comfrey Community Center. From the few times I’ve met them it is safe to say their wedding was much like them, fun, unpretentious and full of laughter. Here’s to an amazing life together!
(The banner and cross were not intentional, but I do love the symbolism).
And for all you fans of the movie Bridesmaids you’ll appreciate this next photo, requested by the bridesmaids themselves. Nice work ladies.
I can’t think of a better way to end the weekend than at a beautiful state park with a fun couple and an eager to help mother-of-the-bride. Alyssa and Taylor and Alyssa’s mom, Kris, met me at Minneopa State Park on Sunday evening just in time for some gorgeous evening light. Never having been to Minneopa before I was blown away by the beauty of the falls, and slightly disappointed that the stair pathway only went down to the river, without wrapping back around to the falls. Thankfully when asked how adventurous they were feeling everyone voted for taking the “not an official path” path that had been worn by other hikers along the creek. Now that might seem like no-big-deal to you, but when doing it in flip-flops they definitely get adventure points! I’m looking forward to seeing these two again in August for their wedding.
