Monica and Joel were married at my new favorite wedding venue, Bloom Lake Barn. Tucked away on a little dirt road near Taylors Falls, they exchanged their vows overlooking a beautiful prairie, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Happy tears were shed, laughs rang out constantly, and everyone danced the night away.

I’m no good with words, so I will let the photos tell the story about their perfect day and how they became Mr. and Mrs. Friese on September 9th, 2016. 

A special thank you to my second shooter, Laura Rae, for helping me be in two places at once throughout the wedding day. I am so thankful for our friendship and it’s always a pleasure to have you help out on a wedding day!
