Joanna and Caleb's wedding was beautiful and inspiring. June 22nd, 2019 was a slightly humid day with the potential of rain later in the afternoon. As most people know, it's considered to be a sign of luck to have rain on your wedding day. We met Joanna at her parent's home where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready in Detroit Lakes, MN. Caleb and his groomsmen were getting ready nearby and preparing for the first look. We began to capture details as the bridal party was finishing up when the bouquets arrived. Joanna decided on wooden flowers for her bouquet and they were nothing short of amazing. Joanna's bouquet as well as the bridesmaids were filled with pieces of jewelry they had worn at each others' weddings and heirloom brooches. Joanna's glow and smile were extremely infectious.

How our Bride and Groom met:

"We met where Joanna worked on March 10th, 2016."

The Proposal:

"I had no idea. He always said we’d get married when we’re 40. He bought the ring last summer and proposed in November. Outside as it was snowing. I was shocked and thrilled."

What they love about each other:

"I love how kind he is to everyone. Even people he isn’t particularly fond of. He has so much patience for everyone. We cross our eyes at each other all the time. When we’re feeling cheeky or when we want to make each other smile."

Joanna and Caleb's ceremony was filled with many beautiful family tied moments. Joanna's brothers escorted their guests to their seats. Both Caleb and Joanna's Grandfathers read scriptures and Caleb's father conducted the ceremony. Caleb's sisters also sang a beautiful song while the couple honored their mothers with a rose and hugs. The Bride and Groom also did a Cord of Three Strands Together Ceremony symbolizing the Union of God, Husband and Wife. After the ceremony, light rain began to fall as the bridal party and their guests proceeded to the Frazee Event Center.

We can't thank Joanna & Caleb enough for the honor and privilege of allowing us to capture their gorgeous wedding day. Congratulations on your new home!! We wish this beautiful couple a lifetime of happiness, laughter, love and many blessings. Congratulations!!!
