Minnesota Summer Wedding

Congratulations to the Fredrick’s! These two tied the knot back in early July at their Minnesota summer wedding. I first met these two back in March for their winter tree farm engagement session and it has been a pleasure getting to know Ryan and Anna over the last few months. 

Ryan popped the question while at one of Anna’s favorite spots along Lake Superior. They practically had the waterfront to themselves and afterwards were able to celebrate with family and friends. How sweet is that?! 

These two lovebirds care so much about each other and it was a joy to be around them. Anna loves Ryan’s integrity and honesty, especially with communication. He challenges her, but also makes her feel secure. He’s sensible, but also knows how to make her laugh! Ryan values Anna’s genuineness with communication and caring nature. She is very supportive and helps them grow together.  

The wedding day was as smooth as can be. Ryan and Anna did an excellent job planning their perfect day and I think all their vendors appreciated how relaxed the whole day was. The couple knew what was important to them and they made time for each other throughout the busy day. It was a joy to watch them celebrate with their favorite people! 

To top off a perfect day, we had a beautiful sunset to end their Minnesota summer wedding. If you know me, I’m a sucker for pretty light and we sure got a lot of it! There was so much fun and laughter in their photos and it makes my job all the more amazing! Cheers to the newlyweds!
