Kelsey + Max
Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens Wedding
This weekend was a weekend of firsts for us as we photographed at Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens for the first time. We had been guests there more than two years ago for a June wedding and we loved coming back and getting to see it with a whole new lens and capture the Disney and hockey love. With a kind and supportive family and a crazy, fun bridal party, this day was destined to be a success. And it did not disappoint. Kelsey and Max got to enjoy a beautiful (rain free) November day! Some of our favorite photos include the beauty of a late Minnesota fall; Max walking their pup in their neighborhood before getting ready for the day, Kelsey and Max outside the church where Kelsey grew up (and became a wife) in front of these gorgeous tall grasses, and then later, the couple down by the Mississippi river before going in to celebrate with their community. But the photo that takes the cake for us is a simple photo of Kelsey grandfather at their ceremony as he dabs a tear. Later that night, he and his wife won the anniversary dance for being married for 62 years!!
A Joy in this World
Kelsey and Max are seriously pure joy. Max is kind, grateful, and supportive of his friends and family. Kelsey has a fiery energy about her that makes everyone want to be around her. When you pair the two together, you get a wonderful team that cherishes each other and cherishes the community they’ve created for themselves. As if that wasn’t enough, they’ve got some bomb dance moves, too J Kelsey and Max, we adore you two SO much! You are so sweet and we hope we can be friends for a long time to come! Congratulations!!
