I first met Courtney and Sam when I photographed the wedding of Megan (Courtney's sister) in September 2016. I was so excited when they reached out to me for their wedding photography -- I love witnessing families grow, and getting to work with the same family again is like a mini reunion!
For their wedding day, Courtney and Sam chose to get married at Sam's parent's private residence, named Stoney Ridge, in Burtrum, MN. The men got ready in the main house, and the women got ready in the four season tree fort (which you can rent, by the way). The location was so stunning -- it's by far one of my favorite places I've ever photographed. After photos and the ceremony, we traveled to their reception in Freeport, MN, which had been transformed into a beautifully decorated space with family-style seating. Soon after dinner, we snuck outside for sunset photos, and then went back in where everyone danced the night away.
Congratulations Courtney and Sam!
