Lake Minnetonka Backyard Wedding – Lauren & Tyler

To say that I was lucky to photograph this Lake Minnetonka Backyard Wedding is just the start!

When I first started to chat with Lauren and Tyler about their wedding plans, I was so excited to be part of their unique and intimate event. Lauren and Tyler wanted  the whole thing  to be “unapologetically” them.  They wanted to include the exciting parts of a wedding and skip the ones that didn’t feel like them. The result:  a fantastic and genuinely fun summer wedding  lake side full of family and friends.

With the perfect sunny summer breeze, their guests enjoyed an afternoon filled with love, and also amazing goodies like BBQ and ice cream, and let’s not forget the beer filled canoe.

From the first moments Lauren’s mom helped getting her ready, I knew that their bond was beyond special. Lauren is the only girl from five siblings, and I could see how incredibly excited her parents were that Tyler was the man she was marrying.

Lauren & Tyler had the most fun and outgoing wedding party, and their ceremony was the sweetest! They kissed in the aisle as they were leaving the ceremony, as bubbles popped around!

Everyone was smiling and enjoying the afternoon next to the couple, without a doubt the best day this summer!

Enjoy the slideshow at the end!!

I grew up in the tropical lands of Costa Rica, where I met the love of my life, and we started our lives in Minneapolis after years of long distance! Together we have the most spunky little one. 
My photos are all about the genuine smiles, the connection between people and the LOVE!
