Naomi and Madelyn were not just models; they are a real couple who are close to getting engaged that had all the real chemistry of a couple on their wedding day. We were able to do a first look just like any wedding day would go because they were so excited to see each other!
Pinewood Weddings in the winter time was the perfect location for a winter wonderland. I teamed up with Todd Harper at Woodland Events and we brought our vision to life. Pinewood is extremely pet friendly and, being pet lovers ourselves, we really wanted to showcase that.
Maddie and Naomi’s cat Chrysanthemum was such a trooper. She hung out in the bridal suite the entire time the two got ready and while we were out and about shooting. The couple took a midday snack break to cuddle with their sweet girl.
Frosty (white dog) and Grace (black dog) were our two dog models. These two couldn’t have been more well behaved. WJM Paper Floral Designs made custom floral collars for them. Lara from Doggy Social MN was on site to help navigate all their needs. Hey There Cupcake even made a pupcake for the two, which they thoroughly enjoyed!
Ziel Bridal and Amy Rachael MUA did an amazing job on the two ladies’ hair and makeup while Bopha put the finishing touches on their custom gowns.
The inside of pinewood has so many great spots for photos from their custom Mercury Mosaic tile wall to their beautiful natural light bridal suite. Outside is just as beautiful as inside with the towering pines. The sun snuck out in the late afternoon to give us the most beautiful light. The entire day was filled with laughter and love. You can tell by the look on Naomi and Madelyn’s faces that they are genuinely inthralled with each other. We couldn’t have ask for a more perfect day for a winter wonderland wedding with the best models and vendors you could work with.
