Just a few weeks ago, Chris and Rorie shared a stunning, heartfelt outdoor wedding at Edgewood Farm in Henderson MN.

Let me tell you about Chris and Rorie by asking you to imagine your kindest, nicest friend – the kind of friend who would drop anything to help you. Now imagine if that friend met someone equally warm and kind and amazing, and then they decided to get married and have an awesome party.

That is how every person at this wedding felt about Chris and Rorie. Their wedding party absolutely gushed about them at their rehearsal dinner and in toasts at their reception, and their entire community of guests was cheering them on all day. Chris and Rorie are an amazing and inspiring pair of people.

Their wedding day was a beautiful reflection of their kind and loving spirits; they celebrated their outdoor wedding at Edgewood Farm in Henderson MN, a ceremony nestled in a grove of trees, and their joyful reception featured tearful toasts, romantic couples portraits in fields at dusk, and a killer, energetic dance party.

I was in love with Rorie’s stunning bouquet. Chris and Rorie chose a summery wedding color palette of grays and navy with pops of soft pink, and I love how the muted, romantic tones in these flowers pulled it all together. Rorie and her bridesmaids got ready for the day in an on-site bridal suite, and we captured these wedding party portraits under nearby sunlit trees!

Chris and his ‘groomsparty’ got ready in the Edgewood Farm barn – his friends were so sweet and helpful, literally helping him into his jacket, buttoning his suit, etc. He was surrounded by such happy and helpful people, and it was a really sweet community.

Chris and Rorie planned a First Look in a nearby grove of trees and they had a beautiful, sweet moment together before moving on to capture wedding party portraits under nearby sunlit trees!

Dusk is a beautiful time for some cozy, relaxed, romantic portraits – the sky is full of rich, muted colors. By placing a flash behind the couple (my second shooter is actually crouching behind them in this picture!) it’s also a perfect time of day to play around with light and shadows and silhouettes and create an epic wedding photography portrait.
