Forepaugh’s – Jesikah & Jon’s Wedding

I knew I was in for a treat when I pulled up to Jesikah’s parents home in Prescott, WI and gazed upon their beautiful Victorian house – which was stunning inside, outside, and around the gardens.

Jesikah and Jon were married in the backyard garden under an arbor full of grapevines. A perfect setting with just 20 family members (including a new baby!) to be witness to their marriage ceremony. I felt very honored to spend the day with them and be a part of such an intimate celebration.

Jesikah is an amazing artist and she painted all of the wedding invitations and made all the floral arrangements – including her wedding bouquet on the morning of the wedding! Congratulations to the very happy couple and enjoy the photos!

Her bouquet was breathtaking and complimented the invitations she hand painted.

I love this photos of Jon adjusting his tie – he looks so handsome!

Her shoes, jewelry, and handmade veil were so pretty. Jesikah made her ceremony veil the night before the wedding — she is truly an artist!

When Jesikah turned around with her dress fully zipped and jewelery on — her sister Gwen and I both gasped at the same time! Jesikah looked so beautiful we were both speechless. I could hardly focus my camera!  I love the photo of her on the left – even though it is not perfectly focused, I think her expression is priceless. Sometimes mistakes work out!

Gwen was still in shock over how lovely her sister looked as a bride.

Jon and Jesikah were naturals — they really enjoy one another and had fun with our photos!

They fell in love on bikes so we didn’t think the neighbor would mind if we stole their bike for a few fun shots.

Isn’t Jesikah’s dress gorgeous?!!

Absolutely stunning. STUNNING.

Such a playful groom – winking at his bride and then at the camera!

I think the best part of getting married at your parents home is hanging out in the kitchen with the AC! Seriously! It felt so nice to cool down for a bit!

Favorite photos of the day. The light was perfect under the grapevine and I could tell Jon and Jesikah were ready to get married!

A group shot – here is everyone.

So much fun!

Jon was so beautifully emotional watching his bride walk towards him — I was totally tearing up behind the camera.

Jesikah’s brothers played during the ceremony and sounded wonderful.

Jesikah’s brother-in-law is a pastor and married them.

A toast from the father of the bride on the backyard deck.

You gotta love a bride with a Holga!

Cocktail hour and dinner at Forepaugh’s in St. Paul. Such a historic building — it sorta looks like Jesikah’s parents home, don’t you think?

I met up with them later that night at the Chamber’s Hotel. They had invited friends to join them for drinks and dancing! It was such a lovely night!

Published – Minnesota Parent Cover

Excited to announce that Ingman Photography shot the cover for Minnesota Parent this month!  You might remember the baby model as Kipton – who most definitely deserves all the attention for being so dang cute!  This is my first published photo and I couldn’t be more excited!

The issue will start to be distributed today and should be out everywhere by September 1st – find out where you can pick up a copy here.

Shaina & Tom’s Wedding

On a sunny Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago I assisted DeWees Photography at Tom and Shaina’s wedding. They were married at St. Luke’s in St. Paul and had their reception at Camrose Hill Flower Farm in Stillwater (which is always a treat for me)! Wonderful couple with a celebration that truly captured the spirit of their families and friends and especially them! Check out Paige’s post for more photos from Tom and Shaina’s wedding.
