Ariel + Josh's Lakeside Bohemian Wedding in Minnesota

This was a wedding for the books. Ariel and Josh got engaged last year, and I got to shoot their engagement session at the Avila cliffs. They planned to have their wedding on the Minnesota lakeside at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, and I got to be the lucky gal to shoot it!

Rather than do things the easy way, I decided early on to do things the complicated way: drive round-trip to Minnesota and back. Chris was very, very kind to join me on the adventure, even in the midst of an incredibly work-packed summer. While the nine days were mostly filled with driving, we did get to stop to see a few tourist traps and roadside sights, successfully overcame a flat tire in the rain, survived a hailstorm, and even closed out the trip by having lunch at one of our favorite places, Peggy Sue’s Diner.

This wedding took 2,000 miles to reach, and Ariel and Josh created a really beautiful, tender, and fun celebration. These are just a few favorites ❤️
