Hemlock Preserve, Esko – Stephanie & David’s Rehearsal

I was introduced to Stephanie and David through my good friend, Tia Keobounpheng. They were in need of a photographer for just their rehearsal, and after hearing what they had planned for 60 of their closest friends and family, I was definitely excited to share in their wedding weekend!

Stephanie and David are such a sweet couple and their tender demeanor with one another was so endearing. I had so much fun taking their portraits on truly their last day of engagement! The rehearsal dinner at Hemlock Preserve in Esko, MN was amazing! The property has a fabulous old barn with a comfy lower level full of antique couches and decor, and the upper level is just as unique. There is also an authentic Finnish sauna – hot and ready for guests to enjoy after dinner – how cool is that (FYI – Stephanie and David got engaged in a sauna)! The rustic charm and relaxed celebration was enjoyed by everyone, including me!

Congratulations Stephanie and David! You are truly a beautiful couple and it was my pleasure to meet you!

    I am wondering if you know how this couple got in touch with Hemlock Preserve? My fiance and I have been researching it for awhile and can’t seem to track anyone down.
