This past weekend was a super crazy one! We had a wedding on Friday in Nevis, MN; about 2 1/2 hours from Fargo. Maybe a bit less than that. The next day we had a wedding in Watertown, SD. I’m nuts. While we were super exhausted by the end of the weekend, it wastotally worth all the traveling and hard work because we had two amazing weddings!! The first one was at anincredible lake home in Nevis. We had a great day, not crazy hot and just the right amount of sunny. There were a ton of beautiful details and the home was stunning. Of course I just adored Leslie and her bridesmaids were great! Loved those girls! Here are a few of my favs…

I loved Leslie’s Mom!! So sweet!


After dinner I stole the two of them away for a few more sunset shots.

Last weekend I met up with Loni and Adam at Lake Melissa near Detroit Lakes. I LOVE photographing at this lake and have two weddings there this year! Loni and Adam are awesome! I seriously love these two! I had a great time with them and I’m really looking forward to their wedding later this summer. Here are a few of my favs from their session.

I think the one below is my favorite.

There were so many dragon flies in this field. It was awesome.
