The Woods Chapel – Dawn & Michael’s Wedding

Dawn and Michael were married on the most beautiful October afternoon at The Woods Chapel in Orno, MN. The entire place was covered in freshly fallen leaves and offered such a warm golden glow to the entire day. Dawn looked radiant in her dress and Michael was so sweet all day long – he wished me a happy birthday right away – which was pretty incredible given that it was HIS wedding day! I had so much fun celebrating with them and absolutely loved The Woods Chapel – such an incredible place to get married. Congratulations Dawn and Michael!!

All of the black and white getting ready shots were taken by my 2nd shooter Amanda Ryrholm.

I adore this next photo because you can see Michael’s mom peeking out the window in the cabin! So cute!

Amanda got this shot and I just love Dawn’s expression.

This bridge was adorable and can you see the teal hearts bended in the wire?! Love it!

I would like a willow tree at all my weddings. They are so romantic.

So many handsome men!

    The picture turned out great! It must be true what they say about overcast skies being the best lighting for photos, even I look good.
