Wedding by a Lake: Northern Minnesota Gull Lake Wedding


Megan is one talented, creative bride. When I arrived to the ceremony site on the shores of Gull Lake in Nisswa, Minnesota to photograph this wedding, I was blown away.

She thought of everything.

This northwoods Minnesota wedding was such a joy to photograph, not just because of the beauty of the local and wedding details, but because Megan and Bryan are clearly so in love with each other. Weddings are happy things to be a part of but there’s a certain kind of magic that is present with such profound love between the couple. Enjoy.

And a special thanks to A Northwoods Wedding for publishing this beautiful event ;)

    What a CLASSIC Wedding…..Classic Original Photo Ideas, amidst all the activity. You manage to get originality even in ordinary images, like the dog, and the path photo at the beginning, and the lights in the distance at the end of the day……Really Lovely.
    What a GREAT place, and yes some good ole fashioned decoration ideas…Love those jars, and tickets…:)ReplyCancel
