Boudoir Portraits – Jena

My very first boudoir portrait shoot! I think both Jena and I were a bit nervous, but after awhile we both just relaxed and had fun! Doesn’t Jena look so pretty?! We did the shoot in her bedroom and the light was incredible – so soft and romantic.

Boudoir portraits are a fantastic groom’s gift.  Jena wanted her wedding gift to Tom to be super special and knew that this would totally surprise him. Jena chose her favorites and we designed an absolutely beautiful album for Tom, and I know for a fact that he loved his wedding gift! Thank you Jena and Tom for letting me share these absolutely gorgeous photos!

Take note 2012 brides!! If you want to surprise your spouse with something totally unexpected – boudoir portraits are a classy and sexy gift! :)

Featured – A Northwoods Wedding, Stephanie & David

Love the ladies at A Northwoods Wedding – their enthusiasm is authentic and contagious! Recently, they featured Stephanie and David’s engagement/rehearsal photos. Did you know that Jenna (from A Northwoods Wedding) is actually FROM Esko, Minnesota! Such a small world…well, in the Midwest anyway! Thanks so much, Jenna and Britt!

I asked Stephanie and David to share a bit more about their rehearsal and wedding, here is what they shared: “Our wedding venue could not have been more appropriate. David proposed in a sauna which made Hemlock Preserve in Esko, Minnesota an easy choice. We wanted to welcome our family and friends to a place that was distinctly Minnesotan. The dairy barn converted into an event space accompanied by a Finnish wood-fired sauna provided a simple and comforting welcome to our weary wedding travelers. In total we had 60 guests which was the perfect amount to fill the barn loft for the dinner. Food was catered by B & B in neighboring Cloquet, MN which Hemlock organized. Stephanie’s aunts provided the traditional Indonesian delicacies for dessert. The venue lent itself towards simple decor with the focus on sharing this time with our guests. Flowers were re-used the next day for the wedding. Anne Ingman’s stunning photographs captured the ‘feeling’ we had that afternoon, finally being able to relax and enjoy our time with guests after months of anticipation. After the dinner, the sauna was ready which offered a unique memory for us and our friends.”  Thanks Stephanie and David!

Featured – Etsy Get the Look Decor Blog

Life got a little crazy and I haven’t had a chance to post about our feature on Etsy! Honestly, Etsy is one of my favorite places online because I know that I will always find something unique. Handmade and vintage treasures abound. When Christine (from Etsy) contacted me about featuring our house on their Get the Look Decor blog – I was thrilled! The post includes a collage of each room in our house with items linked below that are similar in style and feel. Fun, right?!  Thanks so much, Etsy!
